Have You Been Struggling with Feeling Tired, A Low Mood, Weight Gain or Sleep Issues?

It Might be Your Hormones

Don’t Worry, Our Naturopathic Doctors Can Help

Your hormonal system is delicate and small imbalances can result in many symptoms.

Fatigue, anxiety, depression, insomnia, weight gain, and menstrual issues are common symptoms of hormone imbalance.

The adrenal glands, thyroid, and sex hormones – like estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, are all interconnected.

At Onyx Integrative Medicine, we offer advanced laboratory testing & individualized solutions to help restore your hormone balance.

Naturopathic Adrenal Hormone Treatment

Our adrenal glands create the hormone, cortisol, in response to long term stress; this hormone is useful to help us manage stress. However, excess cortisol can result in blood sugar issues, weight gain in the abdomen, problems sleeping, thinning hair and skin, and more.

Over time, our bodies become resistant to cortisol, much like a diabetic becomes resistant to insulin. Therefore the body must produce more and more to have the same effect. Next, the adrenal glands can become fatigued, and their production of cortisol can tank. When this happens, it is known as adrenal fatigue. When this occurs, it is common to feel exhausted and have issues with sleep, low blood sugar, and low blood pressure.

Also, the adrenal glands are closely connected to the thyroid and other hormones. As a result, other hormone imbalances may result. It is important to investigate all hormone connections since there is so much overlap.

Do you crash after lunch?

Naturopathic Thyroid Treatment

Traditional lab testing for thyroid health is sub-optimal. These tests do not accurately reflect the thyroid’s functioning and can miss hypothyroidism. It is common to have ‘normal’ lab results based on these lab findings, and actually, have an issue with your thyroid. The way conventional medicine tests thyroid actually misses half the people who have a thyroid issue!

Thyroid conditions are common. There are many reasons why the thyroid can become over or underactive. The most common cause of hypothyroidism is an autoimmune condition, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis; this is where the body attacks its thyroid gland resulting in low thyroid function.

Also, nutrient deficiencies such as iodine, selenium, and zinc can prevent the thyroid from functioning correctly.

On the other hand, the cause of hyperthyroidism is less understood; however, mold and other exposures are a possible cause.

Wondering if you have a thyroid issue?

Do you have struggle with feeling tired?

Do you have a puffy face or water retention?

Do you struggle with constipation?

Do you have a low appetite?

Do you struggle to lose weight?

Do you feel down or unmotivated?

Is your hair or skin dry?

Do you often feel cold?

Do you have hair loss?

Our Naturopathic Treatment for Thyroid

Our Naturopathic approach focuses on identifying the underlying cause of why your thyroid is not functioning optimally. Many times the adrenal glands are part of the picture as their function is connected to the thyroid.

We use extensive specialized testing and take a whole person approach. For example, we evaluate all of your hormones – cortisol, thyroid, male/female – to address for imbalances which may be affecting one another.

Also, we look into nutrient deficiencies and issues within the digestive tract which could be contributing. We pride ourselves on helping those who have been told their thyroid is ‘normal’ and helping them to regain their energy, vitality, and happiness.

Our Treatment Approach Includes

Targeted herbal supplements

Individualized nutritional counseling

Medications (when needed)

Naturopathic Male/Female Hormone Treatment

Estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, and DHEA are our male and female hormones. To clarify, both males and females have all of these hormones, just different levels.

As we age, our male and female hormone levels tend to go down. While this is a normal part of aging, many find that they do not feel as well as they did when they were younger. For example, lower levels of testosterone in men and women can affect libido, muscle mass, and energy. For women, menstrual issues, hot flashes, mood changes, and weight gain are common.

Fortunately, there are options, both hormonal and non-hormonal, which can help to restore hormone levels and help with these symptoms.
