Both women and men can suffer from hormone imbalances. Traditional medicine would have you believe that the only way to correct your imbalance is hormone replacement therapy. Unfortunately, replacement therapy can have significant side effects, including headaches, nausea, pain and an increase in some types of cancer. Chiropractic care from our chiropractor in Fort Worth can help rebalance your hormones and lessen your symptoms without the side effects.
Hormone Imbalance Symptoms
Symptoms of hormone imbalance include random and severe mood swings, weight loss or gain, insomnia or sleeping more than normal, decreased libido, increases or decreases in hair growth and depression. If you notice these symptoms in yourself, you should seek chiropractic care for natural treatment options that will help your body balance its own hormones. Our treatments for hormone imbalances do not rely on replacement therapy or surgery. Instead, our goal is to help your body rebalance itself.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Restoring Hormone Balance
Dr. Michlin is the only Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist in North Texas. In aligning the atlas (the top bone in the spine) the communication between the brain and the body and the body and the brain is opened up. Hormones are released and regulated by the brain. If there is an interruption in your nervous system, it can affect your body’s natural hormone production. Chiropractic adjustments can remove minor misalignments in the vertebrae, which restores nervous system function throughout your spine and body.
In addition, we may recommend diet changes and exercise to help regulate your hormones. Eating an unhealthy diet is not only bad for your waistline; it is bad for your hormones. Nutrient deficiencies can cause decreased hormone levels, and by increasing your consumption of foods that contain the nutrients you need, your body will start to heal itself and stabilize your hormone levels.
Exercise can also improve your hormone levels. Low muscle tone and excess weight can lead to a decrease in testosterone levels, which results in irritability, mood swings and low libido. Exercising on a regular basis and building muscle mass can lower weight and raise hormone levels naturally.
