Hormone Regulation Q & A

Why is hormone regulation essential for my health?

Hormones serve as chemical messengers that regulate every part of your body. They activate and inhibit your immune system, control your reproductive, digestive, and nervous systems, and determine your:

  • Mood
  • Stress levels
  • Metabolism
  • Heart rate
  • Blood pressure
  • Blood sugar
  • Sexual desire
  • Hunger and satiety
  • Bone strength
  • Muscle growth

Your body protects your health by constantly monitoring and controlling hormone levels. If any hormone goes below or above the normal range, the imbalance causes emotional, physical, and psychological problems.

How does my natural hormone regulation system get unbalanced?

One of your endocrine glands may develop a problem, or an underlying health condition could affect hormone production. Maintaining normal hormone levels also requires a healthy gut and a functioning gastrointestinal tract.

A few issues that commonly disrupt hormones include:

  • Chronic health conditions
  • Acute illness
  • Lack of sleep
  • Long-term stress
  • Medications
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Environmental toxins
  • Eating disorders
  • Thyroid disease
  • Diabetes
  • Obesity

However, you can be healthy and still have a hormone imbalance due to aging.

The levels of many hormones naturally decline as you get older, including growth hormone, thyroid hormones, insulin, and cortisol. Additionally, women lose estrogen at menopause, and testosterone gradually decreases in men after the age of 30.

What symptoms indicate I need hormone regulation?

Hormone imbalances cause a wide range of symptoms, including:

  • Infertility
  • Miscarriage
  • Irregular periods
  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Low sex drive
  • Mood swings
  • Muscle loss
  • Hair loss or thinning
  • Fatigue
  • Memory loss
  • Changes in appetite
  • Unexplained changes in your weight
  • Bloating and abdominal discomfort
  • Changes in the appearance of your skin

Everyone has different symptoms, so you need an expert like Dr. Yuabova to determine the root cause.

What happens during hormone regulation?

Dr. Yuabova begins by learning about your symptoms, lifestyle, life circumstances, and medical history. Then she performs hormone testing to identify your imbalances. While she often uses a blood sample, some hormone tests require saliva or urine samples.

You receive specialized suppression and stimulation hormone testing at National Wellness Group. Dr. Yuabova gives you hormones and other substances that increase or decrease the production of specific hormones.

For example, she injects a hormone, glucagon, and measures changes in growth hormone over several hours. Or you may consume a sweet drink to test glucose levels every two hours.

How does hormone regulation restore balance?

Dr. Yuabova restores normal hormone levels using bio-identical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT). In addition to BHRT, she counsels you about your diet, nutrition, and lifestyle habits.

You may also need:

  • Herbal, vitamin, or mineral supplements
  • IV therapy
  • Neural therapy
  • Amino acid therapy

These treatments maintain whole-body health, which helps keep your hormones balanced.
