- Naturopath for Pregnancy and Hormones
Is your body out of control every month, or do you feel like your hormones are out of balance during pregnancy? You are not alone. We see hormonal imbalances in our patients every day, both pregnant and not pregnant, particularly the hormones associated with thyroid, ovaries and adrenals. If your hormones are out of balance, you will feel the effects in some way or another. Hormones are constantly fluctuating, however if they are too high or too low, they can affect how you feel every day in both mind and body.
Many of our practitioners at Melbourne Natural Medicine Clinic recently attended an educational update seminar on female hormonal conditions discussing new insights and approaches that may assist with PCOS, PMS, endometriosis, fibroids, heavy periods, painful periods, menopause and naturopathic pregnancy care.
Your hormones are the alarm bells responding to a deeper issue. Even when only slightly out of balance, the effects are often noticeable. When you’re pregnant or experiencing a hormone imbalance, you may feel irritability, fatigue, low libido, emotional changes, weight gain or sugar cravings. Or you could have a hormone related condition such as endometriosis, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome, infertility, thyroid conditions or menopause. How many women do you know who struggle with things like these?
Don’t let hormones rule your life. Many women find natural medicine can help to support the management of hormonal conditions as well as pregnancy related hormone changes. Naturopathic medicine, acupuncture and TCM provide great strategies that may support these conditions.
A must for every female to know – being pregnant or experiencing “that time of the month” does not need to be painful, heavy, miserable, debilitating or cause significant distress. It is certainly not normal to feel this way. A well-functioning and balanced hormone network is a wonderful thing. There is a reason for these symptoms, and many can be easily corrected. If you feel like your body is “out of control” every month or when you are pregnant, find out if a naturopath for pregnancy or hormones may be able to help you.
The female hormonal network does not operate in isolation. To holistically address conditions such as PMS, endometriosis and pregnancy, our protocols address a range of key drivers to help address symptoms and aim to get to the root cause of the problem.
This delicately balanced system is sensitively attuned to your overall health, dietary, lifestyle and environmental factors, with stress, inflammation, toxins, poor diet, toxicity, nutritional deficiencies, digestive disturbances and lack of exercise also playing a vital role. As you can see, there are many factors that can have a negative impact on your healthy hormone production and metabolism, so treatment may require so much more than simply treating a hormone.
Particular herbs, nutrients, dietary and lifestyle support has been shown to help support healthy hormones and pregnancies, including:
The good news is you don’t have to live with hormonal symptoms, even if you’re pregnant.
