Acupuncture for hormonal imbalances

Our hormones control both the physical and psychological changes in our body that we experience in different phases throughout life. The hormonal activity regulates i.a. important processes such as growth, metabolism and sexual function.

A hormonal imbalance can lead to the development of certain diseases and disorders that can affect health. It is therefore important to know the symptoms of hormonal imbalances so that you can seek treatment in time.

Symptoms of hormonal imbalance

Sleep problems

Could be due to many things. Often it is a question of bad habits, e.g. with a high level of activity before bedtime, but this can also be due to problems such as  anxiety or sleep apnea . Practicing yoga and eating a tryptophan-rich diet can be recommended to improve sleep quality. If a hormonal imbalance is suspected, it is of course advised to have it examined.

Excessive sweating

Often experienced in menopausal women  with unpleasant sweats (hot flushes), which is due to declining estrogen production. The problem can also occur in younger women if there is a hormonal imbalance or lack of nutrients.

Stress

And mood swings affect our adrenal function, which reduces the amount of progesterone and other vital hormones. It is recommended to eat a tryptophan-rich diet and do various relaxing exercises that can counteract stress.

Weight gain

Can occur without being related to a diet rich in sugar and fat. If you experience persistent weight gain despite eating a healthy diet, there may be a hormonal imbalance. This may be due to an increase in the amount of cortisol, where fat is absorbed in various places on the body – also known as the ‘stress hormone’

Overeating

A constant craving for sweets are clear symptoms of a hormonal imbalance. The symptoms show signs of problems with the thyroid gland and secretion of hormones that affect metabolic function. It can be recommended to reduce the intake of dairy products and sugar.

Digestive problems

May be symptoms of a hormonal imbalance, which i.a. can cause abdominal pain, irritated colon inflammation of the digestive system.

Lack of sex drive

Seen in both men and women and may be due to the production of the hormone androgen decreasing. A hormonal imbalance causes a lack of desire for sex and dryness in the vagina.

Hair loss

For unexplained reasons may be symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Here it is the amount of testosterone, dihydrotestosterone and thyroid hormone that can cause hair loss.

It is important to remember that our body always sends us important signs when something is not right or functioning optimally. Often we get used to the symptoms and trivialize disorders caused by hormonal imbalances. Acupuncture will help here.
