For a female to TRULY feel balanced physically and emotionally during her menstruating years, her hormones need to be in the right ratio balance to each other. Even slight imbalances can have a huge impact on a female’s mood, physical body, and appearance.
Hormone imbalances can result in hair breakage, hair loss, or hair growing in unusual areas. Can cause stomach bloating, fluid retention, and weight gain. Can cause cystic acne and rosacea. They can cause ovarian cysts, breast cancer, and fibroids. They can affect mood and cause depression, anger, or anxiety.
If you suspect a hormone imbalance, it's important to get the right hormones tested, such as sex hormones, thyroid hormones, or adrenal hormones. Testing hormones at the right time of the day and time of the month is also crucial to achieve accurate results. Depending on the type of symptoms presenting, a blood, urine, or saliva test might be requested. A random hormone blood test from your GP rarely gives enough information to address the underlying hormone imbalance and therefore, the hormonal symptoms cannot be corrected.
