Addressing Hormonal Imbalances

Hormonal imbalances occur when there is an excess or shortage of hormones in the body. It leads to mood swings and weight gain, among others. Chiropractic care can aid in correcting these imbalances. 

What Are Hormonal Imbalances?

The nervous system controls the body's production and regulation of hormones. Hormones are chemical messengers that control various body processes. Some of these processes include metabolism, growth, mood, and reproduction. Any change in their production or balance can cause several problems, including:

For women:

  • Mood swings

  • Weight gain

  • Irregular menstrual cycles

  • Infertility, and many more

For Men:

  • Feminization

  • Loss of libido

  • Loss of muscle mass

  • Erectile dysfunction


How Can Brain-based Chiropractic Help?

The nervous system controls and coordinates every body function. When the spine is not functioning right, the nerves in that area do not function as they should. Traditional Chiropractic gets the spine working again to help the spinal nerves do their work.

Brain-based Chiropractic goes further by assessing the health of the brain and nervous system. A properly functioning nervous system restores hormonal balance. To help the spine, chiropractors use spinal adjustments. The adjustments lead to better communication between the brain and the nervous system. It improves hormone regulation and enhances the body's performance.

Improves Fertility

Many couples often deal with infertility. Hormonal imbalance is one of the primary causes of male and female infertility. Chiropractic therapy deals with the root cause of the condition. It allows couples to conceive and have children.

One study found that spinal adjustments can boost female fertility. According to the study, infertile women became pregnant after chiropractic treatment.


Regulates Menstrual Cycles

Hormonal imbalances may be to blame for irregular menstrual cycles. Spinal adjustments can correct the underlying cause of the irregularity. The treatment helps women regain regular menstrual cycles. It alleviates their discomfort and provides relief. 


Reduces Symptoms of Menopause

Menopause for women usually onsets when they reach their 40s or 50s. But hormonal imbalances may also cause several menopause symptoms. These include:

  • Hot flashes

  • Mood swings

  • Vaginal dryness

Spinal adjustments can correct the underlying causes of these symptoms.

The symptoms are less common in women who get chiropractic therapy. A study also revealed that women's quality of life improved thanks to the treatment.


Improves Thyroid Function

The thyroid gland produces hormones that control the body's energy levels and metabolism. Any disruption in thyroid function can lead to imbalances and other health issues. 

By addressing the underlying hormonal imbalances, a chiropractor can aid thyroid function. This treatment can help patients with hypothyroidism have better thyroid function. 



Spinal adjustments realign the spine to improve brain and nervous system communication. Brain-based Chiropractic improves the workings of the controlling system of the body.
