Unresolved Hormonal Imbalance?

Have you experienced fatigue, weight gain, low libido, irritability, used Google, your girlfriends, and a variety of specialists, but your ‘hormonal imbalance' is still unresolved? Feeling a little bit frustrated because something still doesn't feel right?

The problem may be that ‘hormonal imbalance' is a catch-all phrase that could be more precise. It's a description, not a diagnosis. Hormones are our body's chemical messengers:

  • Carrying important information from one organ to another
  • Coordinating your mood, metabolism, growth and fertility.

The two main female hormones, estrogen and progesterone, govern the menstrual cycle, fertility, and many other body processes. Although there are more than 50 different hormones involved in human health, the term ‘hormonal imbalance' is usually used when discussing women's health issues, such as menstrual problems, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), Menopause, and Endometriosis.

Hormonal health can be complicated, so it's essential to seek the help of a specialist like Carine Pieterse. She can expertly navigate this intricate terrain with her deep understanding of hormonal history, signs and symptoms, and her expertise in analysing pathology or urine/saliva tests. Carine Pieterse's extensive experience and particular interest in treating the various complexities of hormones will ensure you receive a personalised diagnosis and treatment plan.

How to resolve hormonal imbalances in women?

As a leading Brisbane naturopath and women's health specialist, Carine Pieterse, Natural Health, can diagnose your symptoms and determine your pathway. You don't need to ‘white-knuckle' it through life or alone; rest assured, you can feel much, much better.

Carine will take a thorough case history to understand the type of hormonal imbalance you may have. Further testing, such as the DUTCH urine hormone test or female saliva test, will give further valuable insight into your hormones. The DUTCH hormone test provides information about your sex hormones and stress hormones and their metabolites and shows how your liver is processing the hormones.

The necessary herbal and nutritional formulas, as well as lifestyle advice, will be decided on to support hormone production, balance, and processing so that your functioning can be restored and you can enjoy life again.

There is hope!
