Hormonal Regulation Naturopath in Calgary (Men and Women)

Hormonal imbalance often occurs after prolonged or intense stressful events, or after a long period of poor self-care.  Some individuals are born with a weakness in a particular system and may have a genetic predisposition to certain conditions.  Burn-out, toxicity, genetics and emotional disturbances can equally effect the endocrine (hormonal) system leading to  a wide array of problems in men and/or women:

Women

  • Low blood sugar
  • Weight gain and difficult weight loss
  • PMS
  • Heavy menses
  • Fibroids/cysts
  • Low energy/fatigue
  • Low libido
  • Erratic mood and behaviour
  • Hot flashes
  • Bone loss

Men

  • Depression/apathy
  • Irritability
  • Bone loss
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Low libido
  • Low energy/fatigue
  • Weight gain and difficult weight loss
  • Prostate hyperplasia (enlarged prostate or BPH)
Physical exam and a simple salivary test will help uncover if a hormonal imbalance is playing a significant role in any health and wellness issues.

Achieving proper hormonal balance consists of clearing affected glands and organs and strengthening weakened glands or down-regulating over-active ones.  Because the endocrine system is complex and interrelated, often several glands and organs will need to be addressed.
