Hormone levels continually wax and wane. This normal process accompanies every stage of life. Your body will respond physically to these changes, influencing the way you feel on a daily basis. When hormone levels are imbalanced, it is normal to feel uncomfortable, sluggish, and just not quite yourself.
Both men and women are affected by hormonal imbalances. Hormones affect numerous processes throughout the body, including metabolism, reproduction, mood, sexual function, growth and development.
Fluctuations in your hormone levels can affect normal, everyday functioning. From mood and sex drive, to fertility and ovulation – all can be affected by your levels of estrogen and progesterone.
When imbalances occur, several conditions may present themselves depending on which hormones are affected and how severe the imbalance.
Here are some possible conditions: acne, anxiety, allergies, headaches, depression, endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, PMS, water retention and so on.
At Acuhealth we work to maintain optimal hormonal balance for fertility. Did you know that FSH supports sperm production and LH stimulates the production of testosterone?
Testosterone is the principal hormone responsible for men’s sex drive, and while men may not experience menopause as a woman would, it is clear that male hormone levels also change with age.
From around the age of 30 your testosterone levels gradually wane, your sex drive slows down, many experience: loss of muscle mass, poor concentration or memory, and weight gain.
This lowering libido may also introduce the sensitive subjects of Erectile Dysfunction and ejaculation problems.
