Irregular, painful and heavy periods, while common, should not be considered ‘normal’. These are all signs of a hormonal imbalance.
Many women suffer from the below as a result of a hormonal imbalance:
- Premenstrual Cramping
- Mood Swings
- Ovarian Cysts or PCOS
- Fluctuating Weight
- Anxiety and/or depression
Hormonal imbalances are commonly treated with the oral contraceptive pill or hormone injections.
However, in many cases this simply masks the problem.
At Body Institute, our Naturopaths use the dried urine test for comprehensive hormones (DUTCH) to determine your hormone levels. From here we use a range of high quality, clinically tested, herbal medicines to stimulate the body’s natural production, conversion and elimination of hormones to bring the body back to balance.
We also look at a range of household chemicals, containers and body products that may contain hormonal disruptors and find safer alternatives that work for you.
