Hormone Balance

Could a hormone imbalance be the reason for your anxiety or acne? Like nutrients, hormones affect EVERYTHING – skin, mood, heart health, cancer risk, appearance, sleep, and energy levels. They are the chemical navigators of our body. 

In most cases, too much of a hormone can be as problematic as too little. Balance is key. That is why a “big picture” approach is important in hormone testing – because hormones work together in a delicate feedback system.

Do you suffer from any of the following?

  • Fatigue
  • Weight gain
  • Hot flashes/Night sweats
  • Dry skin and hair
  • Low libido
  • Depression
  • PMS

Linking clinical symptoms to lab results helps guide effective treatment options capable of restoring hormone balance.

Disease Prevention

Besides affecting the way we look, feel, and act, hormone imbalances an alter our risk for the following diseases:

  • Osteoperosis
  • Breast cancer
  • Endometrial cancer
  • PCOS
  • Endometriosis
  • Heart disease

Spectracell offers comprehensive hormone testing in male and female panels with several different hormones and their precursors.

The role of nutrition in hormone balance

Micronutrients profoundly affect hormone health. It is difficult to achieve hormonal balance when micronutrient status is inadequate and, like nutrients, hormones influence cellular metabolism, energy production, detoxification, and mental health; therefore, balance is key. Conversely, hormones profound impact micronutrient levels. We now know that nutrient-hormone interactions are complex and intricate, so evaluating one in the context of the other helps provides a clearer picture of health status.

SpectraCell’s hormone assessments allow you to pinpoint deficiencies, thus providing you with the information needed to help you determine a personalized treatment plan.
