In Functional Medicine, we understand and support the interconnectedness between hormones, mental and emotional health, stress, sleep, foods, your gut health, and your overall lifestyle. We run sophisticated tests that allow us to detect the most subtle signs of a hormonal imbalance. Unlike mainstream medicine that views hormones and symptoms in isolation, we recognize the unified symphony of health in which all these biological, psychological, dietary, and lifestyle factors play.

The most common hormone imbalances

Hormones are the messenger molecules in your body. They travel through your bloodstream delivering information that instructs your body how to feel, and influencing your energy levels, mood, motivation, hunger, weight, digestion, sleep, metabolism, sex drive, and more.

  • Progesterone 
  • Estrogen 
  • Testosterone 
  • Cortisol 
  • Insulin

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the signs of hormone imbalance?

Hormone imbalance can manifest as a wide range of symptoms, from fatigue, low mood, and brain fog to weight gain, low sex drive, and irritability.

Many people, women in particular, can’t pinpoint an exact cause of their symptoms, but they can intuitively sense that their hormones are “off.” Dr. Jamie loves partnering with women who want to better understand their bodies and empowering them with the knowledge, guidance, and encouragement to start feeling not just just normal again (because normal is often not so great for many women), but better than ever before!

What is the main cause of hormonal imbalance?

Women often experience hormone imbalance at significant times of transition and change in their lives, such as puberty, monthly menstruation, pregnancy, and menopause.

Other times of transition may not be biological, but equally impactful on the hormone system, such as a marriage, a career change, or a death in the family. Everyday habits and experiences can profoundly impact our daily hormonal signaling, such as our stress responses, food choices, movement and exercise or lack thereof, sleep patterns, supplement and medication use, and our exposures to pathogens and toxins.

Is it worth getting hormones tested?

If you experience chronic stress, PMS, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, infertility, acne, or any inconsistencies with your natural rhythms (monthly periods, nightly sleep, morning wakefulness, daily digestion and elimination, hair growth and loss), or any other symptoms that seem to occur or worsen on a cyclical basis (ex: headaches right before your period starts), it is absolutely worthwhile to get your hormones tested and analyzed.

Dr. Jamie Ph.D., your Functional Medicine specialist in Whittier, will help you decide whether it’s truly necessary or not for you to get your hormone levels tested, and if so, which lab tests will be most valuable in providing relevant and usable diagnostic data to determine not just what’s wrong, but what we can actually do about it.

How long does it take to restore hormone balance?

The time it takes your body to get back into balance depends on many factors such as stress levels, past childhood traumas, current dietary habits, quality of sleep, and your level of systemic inflammation.

That being said, research has shown that the average amount of time it will take to restore your hormonal imbalance is 4-6 months. Again, this timeframe is an approximation, as every individual has their own unique set of genes, historical life events, eating habits, exercise habits, and life circumstances.
