What Is Hormone Imbalance?
Hormones are the chemical messengers that affect every part of the body to ensure everything is working together. When they fluctuate too much, they become out of balance and may have negative impacts on different parts of the body.
What Causes Hormone Imbalance?
Hormone imbalances are often attributed only to aging and the cessation of women’s’ menstrual cycles. But in reality these imbalances occur with everyone at one point in their lives and are usually caused by the following:
- Extreme amounts of stress
- Poor diet
- Lack of sleep
- Lack of exercise
- Taking synthetic hormones
- Chronic illness such as diabetes and thyroid problems
What Are the Symptoms of Hormone Imbalance?
The most common symptoms of hormone imbalance are as follows:
- Weight gain especially around the middle
- Low sex drive
- Hot flashes
- Mood swings
- Night sweats
- Irregular period
How Does Functional Medicine Treat Hormone Imbalance?
With traditional medicine, the course of action is usually to treat the symptoms of hormone imbalance with hormone replacement therapy without finding out why patients are suffering from the condition. Functional medicine works to return balance by determining the underlying cause of hormone imbalance. Through tests, a thorough patient history, and evaluation, Dr. Falcone can find and treat the causes of this condition.
What Is the Cost of Treating Hormone Imbalance at the Falcone Center?
At the Falcone Center, the cost for treating patients in Philadelphia, PA, Maple Shade, NJ, and the surrounding area is based on the appointment. Deposit is due when scheduling initial appointment.
It is important to note that the Falcone Center does not accept insurance as it is considered an “out-of-network provider” by most major insurance plans. While we cannot file insurance claims on our patients’ behalf, we can easily provide them with receipts and the necessary paperwork to file for reimbursement. We suggest that our patients determine whether their plans cover functional medicine prior to making an appointment.
Why Should I Seek Treatment for Hormone Imbalance at the Falcone Center?
The staff at the Falcone Center has a patient-centered approach that focuses on treating the entire patient rather than simply the symptoms. We strive to know why someone is dealing with hormone imbalance or other medical conditions instead of dealing with just the symptoms of the condition. Our treatment plans are effective and ultimately successful in healing and restoring the internal balance so that all the body’s systems work together.
