Hormones– estrogen, testosterone, insulin, and adrenaline, to name a few— serve as chemical messengers created within various organs and glands and contribute to many bodily functions. The endocrine system within the body works to control hormone levels and distribution throughout the body. However, if one or more of these hormone levels becomes deficient, it can lead to a variety of symptoms that can compromise your quality of life.
Naples Vitality is your premier destination for the latest and greatest hormone balancing strategies. Led by Dr. King, our compassionate team is eager to work with you and help renew your lust for life. Contact us today to discover which of our hormone balancing strategies may be right for you!
Conventional hormone balancing treatments to correct a deficiency include insulin injections, thyroid medications, and synthetic hormone replacement therapies among others. However, with the discoveries and innovations in modern medicine, there are more natural approaches toward balancing hormone levels. Some of these methods include:
- Avoiding simple sugars and simple carbs
- Exercising regularly
- Eating plenty of healthy fats
- Using adaptogen herbs
- Using essential oils
- Getting a sufficient amount of sleep every night
- Taking supplements to ensure optimal nutritional levels
- Noting when emotional imbalances may occur
