Hormonal Imbalance

We take a whole-body approach to find and treat the real CAUSES of hormonal imbalance


Maybe you feel bogged down with PMS, heavy periods, cramps, mood swings, bloating, migraines, depression or anxiety leaving you dreading “that time of the month.” Perhaps you are in your 30’s or 40’s and find yourself changing from a vibrant woman full of energy to a sleep-deprived zombie who’s gaining weight, snapping at loved ones, and struggling with hot flashes and irregular periods. Or, maybe you’re dealing with painful conditions such as endometriosis or PCOS, or having difficulty conceiving or carrying a child.
All of this can cause you to feel like your life’s spiraling out of control, your body’s abandoned you and leave you screaming: “WHAT THE HECK IS GOING ON?”
The answer may be two simple words: hormone imbalance.
Has Your Doctor Given You Treatments That Aren’t Working Or Making You Feel Worse?
Hormone imbalance is actually very common among women, yet many doctors just offer ineffective lab tests and treatments that do nothing more than cover up the problem instead of fixing the cause. First, there are problems with standard lab tests. Your female hormones (estrogen and progesterone) are more like a roller coaster, with ups and downs, than a merry-go-round. And, standard lab tests only capture what’s going on hormonally at the moment. They tell us nothing about what your hormone levels were yesterday or what they’ll be tomorrow. They also typically fail to measure some very important things (more on that later).
Then, there are the treatments. Two of the most common ways doctors treat hormonal issues is to prescribe birth control pills or hormone replacement therapy. The issue is these methods do not treat the CAUSES of hormone imbalance, they only COVER UP THE PROBLEM, and, in some cases, actually make things WORSE. Take birth control pills, for example. Chances are you’ve either taken them or know women who have. But did you know these often prescribed pills can sometimes actually cause the body to no longer produce its own progesterone and/or estrogen? When a patient stops taking the pill, the body can “forget” how to work properly, creating a host of issues.
We see this all the time in women who are experiencing infertility, heavy cycles, cramping, migraines and other problems when coming off the pill. Hormone replacement therapy, even if it’s bio-identical, is also a bandage solution, adding more hormones to an already imbalanced body instead of addressing the ROOT CAUSES of the problem. We are seeing an increasing number of hysterectomies, endometriosis, female cancers, ablations and infertility than perhaps ever in history, and again, a lot of this is due to solutions that don’t address the real problem. And, that’s where we come in.
You see, your hormones are like a fire alarm – and that alarm is only going to sound if something is wrong. At Integrative Wellness Centers, we test for and treat the issues that are making the “fire alarm” go off in the first place – and standard lab tests won’t pick these issues up.  In fact, they often aren’t even testing the real culprits causing your hormonal imbalance.


The body’s systems don’t work independently of each other. Instead, they all work together like a machine. And, just like a machine, if one part isn’t working right, it affects other parts. You need the proper tests to get the proper course of care, and unfortunately, most patients we see aren’t getting either.

That’s why at our clinic, we take a whole-body approach to find and treat the real CAUSES of hormonal imbalance. What we offer goes beyond standard hormone lab tests and “treatments” that don’t work or make problems worse. If hormones are wreaking havoc on your life and you are at the end of your rope, we recommend you take a more holistic, natural approach to balancing your hormones and seek help from a board-certified Functional Healthcare practitioner (C.F.M.P.) who is trained to look at all aspects of your health.
