The hormone problems that drive people crazy are usually the ones that they don’t know are hormone problems. And that’s a large percentage of the total. Many people never get regular check-ups, and much of the time a regular check-up doesn’t include hormone testing. So getting tested by hormone specialists, like those at our clinic, is the key to knowing what’s going on with your all-important endocrine system.
An example: You’ve been trying to lose weight. You’ve tried exercises of all kinds, jogging, other cardio workouts, strength training, power lifting, mountain climbing, even signing up for strenuous sports. Yet the effect on your weight is minimal and temporary. And the same results dog all your attempts at dieting. You’ve tried low-carb diets, high-carb diets, Neanderthal diets, vegetarian diets, not-eating-till-4pm diets and diets named after doctors from A to Z. Some of them seem to work, but only for a while. Your weight always starts trending back upward, even if you follow the diets to the letter. And in some cases, you can’t follow the diet to the letter, at least not for long, because you start to feel weak and light-headed and hungry all the time.
No Diet or Exercise Plan Can Completely Correct a Hormone Imbalance
It just might be that there’s nothing wrong with your exercise program, and nothing wrong with your diet – but still they don’t work. What? How can that be?
The answer is simple. It may be that no diet, and no program of physical exercise. can help you until you correct your unbalanced hormones. Once your hormonal imbalance is corrected, and your body’s messengers (that’s what hormones really are) are sending the correct messages at the correct time, then and only then can diet and exercise start to do the job you expect them to do. (In fact, in some cases correcting the hormonal imbalance alone is enough to start your weight coming down.)
Think of your body and all its systems as an incredibly complex symphony orchestra, in which every organ is a musical instrument and good health is like a perfect rendition of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.
The Endocrine System is a Hormone Symphony
The body’s hormonal system, also known as the endocrine system, is like the conductor of the orchestra. The conductor makes sure that each player of each instrument plays the proper notes in the proper order and at exactly the right time, and with exactly the right volume. Just like the endocrine system helps to make sure that all of your body’s organs are functioning as they should.
If the hormones in your body are out of balance, it can be like an orchestra with a crazy conductor or no conductor at all -- in which the strings are playing the first movement while the brass is playing the last movement and woodwinds are playing backwards and the chorus has fallen asleep and is making hardly any sound at all. The result is chaos. The result is just a cacophony of noise and hardly music in any sense.
The Key is to Regularly Get Your Hormones Tested
Likewise, your body can’t have optimal health and strength and sexual function if your hormone signals are too weak or mistimed or otherwise out of kilter. Changing your diet or exercising in such a case is like giving pep pills to the violinists and pianists, and weightlifting classes to the clarinetists, while still trying to perform the symphony with no conductor. It just won’t work!
As I said, the key is getting tested. Modern medical science makes it quick and easy to find out if your hormonal system is healthy and in balance. And if it’s not, our board certified physicians can design a program tailored just for you to get you back to better health, happiness, and optimum functioning.
