Is a Hormone Imbalance an Underlying Cause of Your Symptoms?

November 16, 2015

Hormones play a strong role in the overall function and comfort of the body. When your hormone levels are off, you can begin to experience many different symptoms that impact how you feel on a day-to-day basis. Did you know that these symptoms may all be related rather than acting as individual health issues? When you find yourself dealing with a cluster of symptoms, it’s very possible that a hormone imbalance is to blame as the underlying cause of your issues.


Weight Gain or Increased Body Fat

hormone imbalance symptoms Houston TXAs women and men age, it becomes increasingly difficult to keep the body in its normal fit and toned state. Unexplained weight gain or an increase in body fat is often chalked up to poor diet or a decrease in exercise, but that isn’t always the real cause. A deficiency in certain hormones can cause bodily changes. At Hotze Health & Wellness Center, we look at all of your symptoms to reach the true underlying issue, which oftentimes is a hormonal imbalance like low testosterone or the approach of menopause or perimenopause.


Loss of Energy and Fatigue

Fatigue, low energy, and general tiredness are common symptoms of many conditions, and even just signs of a busy life. When paired with other symptoms, though, it’s very clear that you may be experiencing an imbalance in certain hormones. A constantly low level of energy, especially something like still feeling tired after a full night’s sleep, can be indicative of a condition like hypothyroidism. The TSH blood test used to diagnose thyroid disorders often does not serve patients well, leaving you undiagnosed when your symptoms clearly indicate otherwise. Our treatment approach for hypothyroidism is desiccated thyroid, which involves a bioidentical thyroid hormone containing both the inactive thyroid hormone, thyroxine (T4), and the active form, tri-iodothyronine (T3), adjusting your dose as necessary. We simply give your body back what it is missing.


Anxiety or Panic Attacks

natural treatments for adrenal fatigue Houston TXAnxiety can be a common feeling in life on an occasional basis, but when it becomes too frequent or pairs with panic attacks, a greater issue may be at the root of the problem. Anxiety and panic attacks can be a sign of adrenal fatigue, where your adrenal glands are not producing enough cortisol–your naturally occurring stress hormone–for your body’s needs. A number of other symptoms may also tie in with the anxiety as your adrenal glands are stressed trying to keep up with the body’s demands. At Hotze Health & Wellness Center, we practice adrenal fatigue treatment that delivers physiologic, sub replacement doses of bioidentical cortisol as a supplement to the amount produced by your adrenal glands.


Feel Better Now

When your general practitioner can’t seem to find the underlying health issue or simply brushes off your symptoms without a diagnosis, don’t stop there. Our physicians at Hotze Health & Wellness Center understand that not every case is the same and deserves a unique, expert approach. Hormonal imbalance, low thyroid and adrenal fatigue have overlapping symptoms and are often interrelated, so each of these detailed symptoms is just one of many associated with these kinds of conditions. You deserve to live a healthy and vibrant life. Get in touch with us today to give your body back what it needs to thrive.

I’ve been a guest at this facility for 15 years. They are the most efficient, thorough and caring group of individuals I’ve ever experienced. Dr Hotze looks to change the way a typical doctor treats patients and looks for root causes to eliminate medical issues instead of treating “symptoms”. My life has improved 100% since my initial visit. The cost of the treatments are worth it.

I cannot accurately describe in words how I feel about this practice and the entire staff. I have had quite a few health issues throughout the years, rheumatoid arthritis, sjogrens, weight gain, hair loss, irritability, and that is just the beginning. I had pretty much given up on feeling good, just decided to "live with it" and hope for the best. Two very close friends love the Hotze Wellness Clinic and they have experienced life changing health. Made my appointment and from the beginning I felt heard. Not a in and out fast food style practice. They are looked and are looking at my entire body for overall health and wellness. Connections from mind and body to clinical blood work, even dental questions....they care and I feel as if I can trust them. I am on a path to complete wellness and my goal is to have my RA back in remission as it once was....make yourself a priority. Having hope is an incredible feeling!
