Hormones and your health
The hormones produced by your body are vital in supporting your general health. By definition, hormones control and regulate the function of your cells and tissues (specific to each hormone). And, each hormone in your body interacts with the other hormones your body produces. All of the hormones must work together like a finely tuned instrument in order for your health to be optimized and for you to feel great.
Sex hormones, for both men and women, interact with your stress hormones and hormones that regulate glucose levels in your blood. Also, sex hormones play a role in thyroid function as they interact with thyroid hormone - a hormone responsible for important things, such as regulating your metabolism.
Your hormone levels may change throughout the span of your lifetime and they literally play as though they are a symphony within your body. If each individual component of the symphony is in tune and on key, you will feel fantastic. If there are imbalances somewhere, or hormones that are out of tune, you will experience symptoms and experience the effects on your health.
If you are interested in improving your health and would like to investigate whether you have a hormonal imbalance, call 707-292-8882 to set up a consultation with Dr. Hoffman. During your consultation you will be able to ask questions, discuss the options for testing and determine if you would like to pursue a natural hormone balancing program.
