Reproductive Hormone Conditions

Reproductive Hormone Conditions

At PrimeHealth, we evaluate all factors to address hormonal imbalances in both men and women, as ensuring proper hormone balance is essential for overall health and well-being.

Hormones are signaling molecules that maintain equilibrium and regulate metabolism and, therefore, dictate whether the body is in a state of growth or breakdown. 

Let us guide you toward optimal hormone balance to improve your quality of life.

This page is dedicated to the hormones we commonly think of in reference to the reproductive system (there are several hormonal systems addressed on other pages, such as the thyroidadrenal, bone-related, and cardiometabolic. For women, the main reproductive hormones are estrogen and progesterone. For men, it’s mainly testosterone. However, men and women require all three of these sex steroid hormones in varying proportions. There is a constant symphony of hormonal interactions and modifying one hormone always affects the entire web.

Hormonal imbalances and fertility issues are becoming increasingly common. Many factors, including poor diet, chronic stress, sedentary lifestyles, endocrine-disrupting chemical exposure, EMF exposure, sleep disturbances, and lack of sunlight, nature & community, are to blame. Once identified, we can work with you to reverse their effects. 

Thankfully, we can correct hormonal imbalance by addressing its root cause. Many hormone conditions respond to a specific diet, herbal, mind-body, supplement, and medication protocols. Especially amenable to these protocols are PCOS, amenorrhea, endometriosis, irregular periods, PMS, low libido (male or female), and low testosterone. At PrimeHealth, we have a strong track record of helping our patients to correct each. 

Menopause is the cessation of a woman’s period and is another area where we can provide support. Perimenopause is the time surrounding menopause (beginning as early as 10 years before menopause) and ranges widely from patient to patient. In some, perimenopause goes unnoticed, while others experience severe discomfort. Many methods can help alleviate a difficult perimenopausal period depending on your needs. These include lifestyle changes, mind-body techniques, herbs, acupuncture, and bio-identical hormones. Even if not experiencing perimenopausal discomfort, certain conditions or family histories (i.e., Alzheimer’s disease) can benefit from bioidentical hormones. Each technique is considered in creating your Personalized Wellness Plan.

Andropause is the decline in testosterone that can occur later in a man’s life, generally starting around age 40 and accelerating into the 50s and 60s. Similar to menopause, this transition may go completely unnoticed or can cause severe discomfort. Several interventions can greatly alleviate andropause, including lifestyle change, supplements, herbs, medications, and bioidentical hormone replacement. We incorporate all available tools to help you regain vitality.
