Hormones affect a person’s quality of life including energy levels, sleeping habits, proper functioning of the organs, bones, and soft tissues, managing stress, thinking patterns, and weight control. It is not uncommon for these hormones to be thrown out of their balance and need to be readjusted. Hormonal dysfunction can occur because of dietary influences, like the effects of sugar or refined flour, or the presence of foreign chemicals and heavy metals. Chronic stress can also be a factor in disturbing hormonal balance. The balance of hormones is vital for health. A proper hormone evaluation by an experienced doctor is the first step in understanding the factors which can cause disruption and restore that balance of these delicate hormones.
The hormones most responsible for the treatment of chronic disease are grouped into four areas: insulin resistance, thyroid dysfunction, stress response and adrenal insufficiency, and sex hormone dysfunction and sleep hormones. Hormones and nutrition are inherently connected. For example, if a person has hypothyroidism he or she doesn’t produce the proper digestive enzymes and may not absorb important nutrients. On the other hand, if a person doesn’t absorb enough selenium and iodine his or her thyroid cannot manufacture hormones. Diet, exercise, nutrient support, and supplementation are some of the most effective tools Alpha Health Care uses to correct these imbalances.
