Hormonal Imbalances and Chiropractic
Every system in your body has a different role to play in keeping your body working properly. If one system is amiss, it can impact other systems and various functions that are important to your overall health. One of the most essential systems in your body is the endocrine system.
The endocrine system is often referred to as the hormone system, and it consists of hormones themselves, glands, and receptors that respond to the hormones. Hormones are chemical messengers that travel through the bloodstream to regulate and control all biological processes within the body.
Hormone production and reception are extremely important for things like body growth, energy production, blood sugar control, reproductive health, respiration, and more. When the endocrine system isn’t working properly, a myriad of health issues can arise. Thankfully, Dr. Brendan Shanahan and Dr. Thomas Madigan at Vitality Precision Chiropractic can help.
Causes and Implications of Hormonal Imbalances
If you’ve recently had blood drawn and been told you have hormonal imbalances, you may be overwhelmed with the treatment options. At the same time, perhaps you don’t have confirmed or diagnosed hormonal imbalances but you’re dealing with strange symptoms with an unknown cause. Hormonal imbalances can bring about unique symptoms that may seem unrelated to one another, so it’s worth checking your hormone levels if you’re in that situation.
Here are some of the common symptoms of hormonal imbalances:
· Slow or rapid heartbeat
· Constipation, diarrhea, or frequent bowel movements
· Unexplained weight gain or loss
· High cholesterol levels
· Depression or anxiety
· Dry and coarse skin or hair
· Irregular body fat distribution
· Being unable to tolerate warm or cold temperatures
· Skin tags
· Extreme thirst or frequent urination
Because hormones are so powerful, having slightly more or less than what you need can bring about big problems in the body. Several medical conditions have been linked to hormonal imbalances, and some can be chronic or temporary. Here are some of the top conditions caused by hormonal imbalances:
· Irregular menstruation
· Thyroid Disorders
Chiropractic Care and Hormonal Imbalances
When your spine has vertebrae that are out of place even the slightest amount, they can put pressure on the spinal cord and nearby nerves. This can impact the endocrine system and wreak havoc on hormonal production and reception, leading to imbalances and health conditions. A Rochester Hills chiropractor, like those at Vitality Precision Chiropractic, can help realign the spine and remove the interference that’s impacting the endocrine system. This spinal alignment restores proper function to the nervous system and the entire body, bringing about improved health and wellness.
