Hormonal Imbalance Q&A

What causes a hormone imbalance?

Hormones are the chemical messengers of the body that tell your body what to do. Your hormones play an essential role in your physical, emotional, reproductive, and sexual health.

Hormonal imbalances can result when your body produces too much or too little of certain hormones. Women with unbalanced estrogen or progesterone levels can experience a range of complications, including irregular periods and infertility.

Many women experience symptoms of a hormone imbalance as they transition to menopause, the end of their childbearing years, when their periods stop for good. You may also experience an imbalance if you have a thyroid disorder or other chronic health issue that affects your hormones.

Hackensack Family Acupuncture & Wellness offers comprehensive care for women with a hormone imbalance. The providers take a whole-person approach to correct the imbalance and the symptoms it can cause. They use acupuncture techniques and other holistic strategies to support your long-term wellness.

How do I know if I have a hormonal imbalance?

Even a minor imbalance in your hormones can trigger a range of symptoms that affect your quality of life. Schedule a wellness evaluation at Hackensack Family Acupuncture & Wellness if you experience:

  • Hair loss
  • Breast tenderness
  • Painful periods
  • Acne breakouts
  • Unintended weight gain

Pelvic pain can also occur with hormone imbalance-related conditions, including premenstrual syndrome (PMS), polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and endometriosis.

The providers can evaluate your hormones during a blood test. They also review your lifestyle, diet, and medical history to identify which treatments are a good fit for you. They use acupuncture therapy to restore hormone balance and provide long-lasting symptom relief.

How does acupuncture treat a hormone imbalance?

Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine therapy that involves the insertion of needles into specific points (meridians) of your body. Traditional practitioners believed this process restored the flow of qi (life energy force) to rebalance the body.

The Hackensack Family Acupuncture & Wellness providers utilize traditional techniques to enhance blood circulation. The needles also stimulate key hormone channels to regulate your natural hormone levels.

In addition to acupuncture, the wellness specialists offer a variety of Chinese herbs and supplements to support hormone balance. These supplements can also address fibroids and other reproductive health issues that a hormonal imbalance can cause.
