Hormone Imbalances

The body continually works with an amazing and fluid balance of hormones. Distributed as tiny chemical messages that travel through the bloodstream, hormones are made by the body to communicate work to be done. Like anything else in health, your hormone production, feedback and metabolism can become unbalanced with stress (lifestyle changes, emotional shock, infection, injury, and nutritional depletion or excess). Genetic tendencies and times of hormone transition such as fertility management through the use of birth control hormones, infertility treatments, pregnancy, menopause or andropause, will also have an affect.

Bioidentical hormones for both men and women are natural hormones made to be exactly the same hormones that your body produces for itself. Many people are now exploring the use of bioidentical hormone therapy (BHRT) to help rebalance hormone insufficiencies. However, with feedback and metabolism loops, it is not always simple. Women, in particular, are often not happy with the outcomes. This is why it is important to understand your own personal health history and to determine metabolism and hormone levels using lab testing. Not everyone uses or needs the same amounts of hormones.

For years, Dr. Kyle has used a 24 hr urine hormone research lab test to see the unique levels of six estrogens along with testosterone and its androgen metabolites. Adrenal hormones such as DHEA, cortisol, and their metabolites are also tested. Matching your health symptoms and history with these labs helps to identify which hormones your body may need for repair as well as providing the supportive recommendations to use these hormones successfully.

We find that many non-hormone health conditions appreciate and need the balance of hormone health. Chronic fatigue, elder health vibrancy, immune function, arthritis, digestion, migraines, insomnia, depression and anxiety, post surgical repair, dental health, heart health, osteoporosis and weight management all need hormonal balance as much as PMS or menopausal concerns. Our hormones support our physical structure and our mental health.

Diet, botanical, homeopathic and nutrient supplement supports all can help in the long term use of hormones for optimal health.
