Hormone Testing

Hormones play a huge role in how our bodies function. We have hormones that dictate our sex. Hormones play a role as to whether your thyroid is functioning correctly or not. Hormones are the messengers sent by the endocrine system, through the circulatory system, to tissues, bones, and organs telling them how to behave.

It is imperative that you keep your hormones in balance. Chiropractic care can help you keep your endocrine system balanced and aligned with the circulatory system. If your spine is out of alignment, nerves can interfere with the normal paths taken by hormones. Spinal adjustments can help make sure that hormones travel unimpeded throughout the body.

An imbalance can be due to either overactive or underactive gland activity. Specific hormone-producing glands include the thyroid, ovaries, pancreas, gonads, and pituitary gland.

What Can You Expect from Hormone Testing?

Hormone control is all about keeping them balanced. When they are impeded or produced in quantities either more or less than they should be, we can suffer from tissue and organ damage. Some organs can even fail.

Treatment of hormone imbalance will include chiropractic spinal adjustment, nutrition counseling, and monitoring by your endocrinologist.

Hormone Frequently Asked Questions

Your hormone balance can be negatively affected by a lack of sleep, lack of cardiovascular exercise, too much caffeine, and supposed miracle diets that cause you to lose weight too fast. Eating too much sugar and too much salt can also negatively affect your hormone balance.

While there is no way of preventing that which happens naturally, we can reduce the symptoms through chiropractic care. Both low testosterone levels and low estrogen can bring substantial mood changes and night sweats. Proactively seeking chiropractic care during this time can help you prevent these common side effects.

The same superfoods that we consume to bring down inflammation can also be used to boost and balance the hormones within your body. Berries such as blueberries, strawberries and cherries. Fruits including tomatoes and avocado can assist in hormonal balance. Lean meats, avoiding fats, and eating fish can help. Finally, not only can dark chocolate help balance your hormones it can also improve your mood.
