Hormone Balance

Hormones play a fundamental role in your overall health, to keep your body running smoothly. They act as messengers within your system and affect everything –brain, heart, bones, muscles, skin, and reproductive organs.

As men and women age, the levels of some hormones can start to go down. Low hormone
levels can diminish your quality of life and cause fatigue, muscle loss, weight gain, discomfort, and others. Some symptoms are very common to women who are near or past the age of menopause.

Achieving balance in life is probably not a new concept to you. Just like balancing your diet and your schedule, your hormones also need to find a balance for you to feel your better. If you’re experiencing any symptoms, hormone lab testing could be the solution you’ve been seeking.
