Hormone imbalances are more common than people may realize. Throughout our lives, our body will become imbalanced at one point or another. The most common times when imbalances occur include:

  • Puberty
  • Pregnancy
  • Andropause
  • Menopause

Dr. Adam Maddox of Thrive in the Portland area is a naturopathic aesthetic medicine specialist who understands how important it is to have the hormones balance. Hormonal imbalances occur when there is either and over- or under-production of hormones, which include testosterone, progesterone, and estrogen. These three hormones are needed for the body to function at its best. When there is an imbalance, patients may begin to notice many signs and symptoms, which may indicate a need to visit a trained professional for proper testing and diagnostics.

Signs and symptoms of a hormonal imbalance may vary from patient to patient. However, there are some standard indications that something may be wrong with the production of hormones from the endocrine system. Common symptoms that occur in both men and women may include:

  • Skin problems
  • Mood swings
  • Reduced sex drive
  • Inability to maintain weight
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of memory
  • Hair loss

Hormonal imbalances, not treated, can lead to a wide range of medical problems and conditions that may need further treatment, and may include:

  • Urinary tract infections
  • Anxiety
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
  • Diabetes

Dr. Adam Maddox suggests patients come into Thrive to learn more about hormonal imbalances and the solutions available to bring patients back to health and vitality. Both men and women can benefit from treatment options such as hormone replacement therapy, which is commonly done for individuals who are testing too low or too high in a specific hormone.
