Who Should I See For Hormone Issues?

Conventional medical training does not pay much attention to hormone imbalances. Often the paradigm can be: 'you're either in menopause or you're not' and for men andropause frequently gets forgotten about altogether! But the reality is that hormones start to decline and get out of balance years before menopause and this can cause a huge array of symptoms. Moreover, hormones can get imbalanced at any stage of our lives due to other factors such as nutrition, gut issues, stress, poor detoxification, nervous system dysregulation and genetics, and all of this is treatable with a functional medicine approach.

Functional medicine doctors and BHRT experts look at dysfunctions and imbalances even before they prevent as disease, which means that they look at hormones and how they work in the body. They use a variety of lab testing to identify hormonal imbalances and design personalised treatment plans to restore balance and often do multiple rounds of testing to understand your unique hormone challenges.

And because they treat the whole person – not just symptoms – they can help you prevent future hormone problems from occurring.

So if you’re dealing with hormone issues like fatigue, weight gain, mood swings or hot flashes, it’s worth seeing a functional medicine doctor who can get to the root of the problem and help you feel like yourself again.

Practitioners Trained in BHRT

If hormone imbalances have you feeling less than your best, it might be time to consider working with a practitioner trained in bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT).

Unlike conventional doctors, bioidentical hormone experts use advanced hormone testing through blood or urine tests and utilise personalised treatments including supplements and individualised bioidentical hormones to restore you back to balance and optimal health.

The results you receive from hormone testing can then be used to pinpoint dietary and lifestyle changes along with treatments that will help rebalance your hormones.

A trained practitioner will give you guidance on how lifestyle habits impact your hormones and also provide (if necessary) hormone replacement which will remedy hormonal deficiencies.

Contrary to popular belief, HRT isn't just a one-size-fits-all proposition and prescribing just the hormones you need in just the doses you need gets optimal results.
