Hormones refer to chemicals that are carried throughout the blood that can affect mood and energy levels. Hormones such as oestrogen play a significant role in our reproductive health and wellbeing which is why it’s important to ensure they remain in balance to avoid undesirable symptoms. At Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic, our hormone specialists in Melbourne can help inform you about the role of different hormones and how you can maximise their health benefits while minimising their disadvantages.
Oestrogen is to women what testosterone is to men – an essential part of reproductive health. From early childhood through to middle age and beyond, oestrogen plays a role in every stage of a woman’s life. This hormone, which is produced by the ovaries, is responsible for a range of positive things including foetal development, reduced chance of heart disease, improved cognitive abilities, and more. Unfortunately, it is also associated with PMS, menopausal symptoms, and other hormonal complications.
Our hormone specialists in Melbourne are trained to maximise the positive effects of oestrogen while minimising the negative effects. We can help you avoid ‘oestrogen dominance’ which may result in fatigue, weight gain, mood swings, sleep disturbances, headaches, and other symptoms. We offer a range of natural remedies to assist with this, including flaxseeds for increasing the production of good oestrogen, polygonum and kudzu for regulating the effects of oestrogen, turmeric for general detoxification within the body, and folic acid, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12 for effective processing of oestrogen.
At Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic, our hormone specialists in Melbourne can provide advice on a range of other measures you can attempt to improve your hormonal health. This includes, but is not limited to, consuming a healthy diet of fruit and vegetables, increasing exercise, reducing caffeine consumption, and giving up cigarettes. These are all excellent natural remedies that can relieve the negative effects of hormones as well as promote good health and wellbeing.
