Some women have come to believe that irregular periods, mood swings, weight gain, fatigue, and brain fog are just normal parts of life. However, these symptoms could mean that your hormones are out of whack. Luckily, Dr. Brighten can help by combining an intricate knowledge of the body’s endocrine system with a natural approach to balance and healing.
Hormones are the body’s messengers for countless processes and affect everything from mood to weight gain to stress response. Hormones also control sleep, sexual function, and fertility, working together as one system to keep us focused and functioning at high levels. That is, unless our hormones are imbalanced.
Although women get most of the attention when talking about hormone imbalance and fertility, an estimated one in 25 men are affected by male infertility. Not to mention those men who experience unwanted weight gain, fatigue, and mood issues – also signs of hormone imbalance. If you or someone you know suffer from any of the following symptoms, Dr. Brighten can help.
- Mood and energy fluctuations
- Strong food cravings
- Unwanted weight gain
- PMS, PCOS, heavy, painful, or sporadic periods
- Low libido
- Lack of sleep or poor sleep patterns
- That “tired and wired” feeling
- Dependence on stimulants like caffeine, sugar, cigarettes, or alcohol
- Hot flashes or night sweats
Dr. Brighten will implement changes gradually, focusing on whole foods, herbs, and stress management. Functional lab tests can better steer treatment and recovery, and Bioidentical Hormone Therapy and Holistic Pelvic Care™ (for women) may also be necessary. Treatment plans will reflect your unique needs and are designed to treat root causes, not individual symptoms.
If you have been suffering from hormonal imbalances, please schedule a complimentary 10-minute consultation with Dr. Brighten. Or, learn more about what it's like to work with Dr. Brighten.
