Lueken Chiropractic & Wellness Group can help you regulate your hormone balance with natural healing techniques.
Chiropractic care is a non-surgical, drug-free method for helping you achieve the hormone balance you need to function at your best. Spinal health, exercise, and diet are key components in hormone regulation.
When the spine is misaligned, it puts pressure on the nearby nerves impacting the nerve’s ability to communicate with the rest of the body. As a result, the brain does not receive the messages it needs in order to regulate the body. This dysfunction interferes with the messages that are being sent to the endocrine system which is responsible for hormone regulation. When the spinal alignment has been corrected, the nervous system is able to accomplish its job correctly.
SIGNS OF HORMONE IMBALANCE
Hormones are chemical “messengers” that impact the way your cells and organs function. Your hormone levels change at different times (your cycle, pregnancy, or menopause) as a normal part of certain body systems. Some medications and health issues can cause them to shift as well. “Normal” levels of hormones vary from person to person.
If you are just not feeling your best, or if you have any of the following signs, you may need to address your hormone balance:
Unexplained weight gain or loss
Sleeplessness or unexplained fatigue
Abnormal cycle or inability to get pregnant
Hair loss or abnormal growth
CHIROPRACTIC CARE FOR HORMONE IMBALANCE
Chiropractic care for the regulation and balancing of hormones provides a safer approach to restoring your health. It provides the body the opportunity to do what it is designed to do: heal itself.
Your body has many parts that all work together and affect one another in different ways. Your spine houses nerves that run the length of your body that send signals to your brain from various systems–such as your endocrine system which helps in the production and regulation of hormones. When your spine is out of alignment, it impairs the nerves and they are unable to transmit messages to your brain and other systems of your body effectively. Nerves send signals to control the levels of estrogen and progesterone in your body.
Estrogen and progesterone are stimulated by the anterior pituitary gland which is controlled by the hypothalamus portion of your brain. The hypothalamus regulates the estrogen and progesterone in your body and it also acts as a receiver of information from your thalamus and limbic systems–the systems that regulate your emotions, libido, temperature, sleep patterns, and thirst and hunger impulses.
Chiropractic intervention can successfully help you achieve hormone balance through the correction of spinal misalignments (subluxation). Dr. Chelsey can realign your spine, promoting proper nervous flow and function, helping your body restore itself. By addressing the root cause of the hormonal imbalance, chiropractic care gives the body what it needs to to re-stabilize itself. The natural mechanisms of our endocrine and nervous systems then respond by doing what they know how to do – achieve and maintain homeostasis.
If you suspect a problem with your hormone balance, Dr. Chelsey can conduct a simple test to evaluate your hormone levels and suggest treatment.
