There are many chemical systems within our bodies. The chemical messengers are hormones. There are major hormone systems which we can not live without, and minor hormone systems which deal with fine tuning for the best feeling of well-being. The major hormone systems of insulin, cortisol and adrenaline are mostly influenced by diet, exercise, stress and sleep and toxic chemicals (caffeine, alcohol, stimulants, etc.). The minor hormones help us to deal with stress, have continued energy levels and keep up with the demands of a busy lifestyle. The minor hormones are thyroid, male hormones (androgens), female hormones (estrogens), and precursors such as DHEA and Pregnenolone, all need good balance to feel our best.
At the Life Balance Centre, we design an individualized plan from the first day to get all of the hormone systems back into balance. Starting with a thorough history and evaluation, we target both metabolic and hormonal problem areas and initiate further testing and program design to begin the journey to achieving balance in all bodily systems.
