What Are The Symptoms of Hormone Imbalances?
Hormones are a crucial part of your health and wellbeing. They can affect every aspect of your physical life as well as your mental health. Hormones are greatly misunderstood and as a result of this, many people dealing with thyroid disorders or hormone imbalances go undiagnosed for years. Many people are also misdiagnosed.
The symptoms of hormone imbalances can look like many different types of health or mental health issues. Here are just a few of the symptoms that could indicate you are dealing with these health issues.
Thyroid disorders can manifest in the following ways:
- Fluctuating heartbeat
- Changes in skin
- Eye problems
- Lump in neck
- Heightened emotions
- Sleep problems
Hormone imbalances can manifest in the following ways:
- Weight gain
- Muscle weakness
- Pain in joints
- Increased or decreased heart rate
- Mood swings
How Can a Functional Medicine Doctor Help?
A functional medicine doctor will seek to get down to the root of your thyroid conditions instead of simply treating your symptoms with medication. Your body works as a whole. Every part and system affects every other part and system. To truly heal and find relief for symptoms, we will approach the entire body and find out what is going wrong on a deep level. Diagnostic tests can be done to evaluate how your thyroid is functioning and to determine if hormone levels are normal.
Spinal adjustments are an effective type of thyroid treatment. The thyroid works very closely with the spinal cord and the brain to send the proper hormones throughout the body. If the spine is out of alignment, it can affect how the thyroid is functioning. If there are other hormone imbalances present in the body, bringing the spine back into alignment can help with this as well. When the brain and spine are properly aligned, neuron messages, oxygen, blood, and nutrients can flow more easily throughout the body, which helps all of the glands which produce hormones to function properly.
