Some common causes of hormonal imbalance in women are menopause, high stress, unhealthy diet, insufficient sleep, pregnancy, birth control pills, thyroid problems, poor digestion, polycystic ovarian syndrome and exposure to environmental toxins.
Hormone imbalance can result in serious conditions like infertility, cancer, depression and anxiety, memory loss and hair loss if left un-repaired.
The most common medical treatment of hormonal imbalance is hormone replacement therapy (HRT), also known as menopausal hormone therapy (MHT).
The main goal of HRT is to treat common menopausal symptoms, including hot flashes, vaginal discomfort, night sweats, and bone loss to improve patient’s sleep, sexual relations and overall quality of life.
However, this method can also lead to serious conditions like heart disease stroke, breast cancer and blood clots.
