Hormone Balancing is important for regulating most major bodily processes. Hormones are messengers that relay information to and from different organ systems. Every hormone has a different task in allowing the body to maintain healthy function. When hormonal imbalances occur, there is too much or not enough of a hormone in the bloodstream. Since hormones play an essential role in the body, even small hormonal imbalances can cause side effects felt through the entire body.
Cortisol is our stress hormone produced by the adrenal glands to help control blood sugar, regulate metabolism, influence memory formation, and reduce inflammation. The timing of cortisol release is linked to daily activity patterns. Many Americans suffer from cortisol imbalances due to high stress levels and chronic blue light exposure, which may ultimately lead to disrupted sleep patterns and weight gain.
Excess or insufficient sex hormones, such as estrogen, progesterone and testosterone can lead to a variety of symptoms ranging from fatigue and adult acne, to low libido, hair loss, and mood swings.
The hormone testing we do at Physio Logic aims to identify excessive or insufficient hormone levels in order to balance your endocrine system. Together, we’ll discover the root cause of your symptoms and develop a personalized hormone balancing plan that works for you.
