How to Treat Hormonal Imbalance

A hormonal imbalance can affect the body in many ways, most of which are negative and difficult to deal with.  Hormonal imbalances may occur in both men and women but primarily occur in women.  Symptoms of hormonal imbalance include overall fatigue, severe headaches, depression, hair loss or growth, weight gain and acne.

There are treatment options available for women suffering from hormone imbalances.  A wide variety of treatment options include:

The first step in treating a hormonal imbalance is to assess your hormone levels.  A blood and urine test can detect levels of cortisol, progesterone and testosterone.  Saliva tests may also be administered.  Doctors may pinpoint which hormone is imbalanced and determine treatment from the results.

Prescription medication may be given to treat hormonal imbalances.  When lacking particular levels of hormones, a hormone supplement or replacement pill may be prescribed.  Hormonal injections may also be given in the most severe cases of imbalance.

For those not willing to use synthetic drugs to correct a hormonal imbalance, natural alternatives are available.  Herbal treatments may include the use of dong quai or black cohosh.  A nutritionist or physician may be able to initiate an herbal treatment plan for those suffering from imbalanced hormones.

Eating a diet rich in vitamins helps to maintain balanced hormones in the body.  Lessening the consumption of fatty and high sugar foods and increasing fresh and natural foods into a diet helps regulate hormones.

Exercise plays an important role in balancing hormone levels in the body.  Researchers have shown that getting at least 30 minutes of cardiovascular exercise three times a week or more regulates the body’s hormones and keeps levels stable.  It is important to always check with your doctor before initiating a new exercise program or treatment plan.

Exposure to stress and worry can lead to imbalanced hormones and exacerbate symptoms.  Stress can be eliminated or decreased through routine exercise, daily meditation or activities such as yoga, swimming or massage.  Eliminating stress and anxiety from your life keeps hormones in check and balanced.
