Hormone Balancing in Brisbane

  

Did you know that your period is a report card of your health and fertility? A woman’s period should come and go with relative ease, not disrupting her daily routine or quality of life. 


Ovulation is a key sign of balanced hormones as it produces progesterone – an essential hormone for fertility. Progesterone also boosts metabolism and supports healthy weight management, reduces pain during periods, fluid retention & inflammation, increases detoxification, supports bone health, reduces risk of oestrogen-dominant cancers and male hormones, thereby improving skin and hair, and it calms and relaxes us, improving sleep and mood.

Symptoms indicating imbalance to female hormones

  • Mood fluctuations
  • Food cravings
  • Fluid retention
  • Sore, swollen and tender breasts
  • Heavy bleeding during periods (over 80ml/day) 
  • Bleeding through sanitary items into clothes
  • Painful periods requiring pain medication/days off work
  • Little to no bleeding during a period
  • Anovulatory cycles (no ovulation takes place)
  • Dark brown spotting or bleeding in between periods
  • Issues losing weight no matter how well you eat or how much you exercise
  • Facial hair growth
  • Persistent acne
  • Difficulty falling pregnant
