Hormones are powerful chemical messengers, produced by the body’s endocrine system, that affect the vast majority of the body’s vital functions. When everything is level, hormones help maintain emotional and physical health. However, an imbalance in hormone levels can result in an array of troublesome symptoms that may negatively impact an individual’s quality of life. Fortunately, those who suffer from hormonal imbalance can find relief with proper treatment with our hormone imbalance optimization services!
Hormones provide support to an array of bodily functions, including metabolism, sleep cycles, appetite, cell growth and repair, stress reactions, fertility and reproduction, and emotional health. When proper proportions are not present, people can experience a variety of symptoms.

Hormonal imbalance symptoms in males include a distinct decline in libido and difficulty maintaining or achieving erection. Men may also notice a loss in energy, endurance, and muscle mass, and begin accumulating weight in their abdominal region. They may experience difficulty concentrating, be more prone to depression, and feel less confident in their personal and professional lives. Others may develop high cholesterol or high blood pressure. Stiffness and joint pains are also common. Additional symptoms can range from sleep apnea and insomnia to hair loss and urinary issues.
