The endocrine system is made up of a number of glands and organs in the body. These glands secrete hormones into your bloodstream, which travel to other parts of the body to help them to function.
Some of the most important organs in the body are a part of the endocrine system. From your hypothalamus and pineal gland in the brain, thyroid in the neck, the liver, stomach, pancreas, and duodenum in the torso, the testes/ovaries, and more, the endocrine system is spread throughout your body.
Because there are so many important organs in the endocrine system, your body’s health relies heavily on the health of your endocrine system! If these glands fall out of balance, many other parts of your body often do as well.
Dr. Nardini, ND specializes in natural endocrine health treatments to help bring these systems back into balance and help you live a healthier, happier life!
What Are Endocrine Diseases?
Some of the common ailments you can experience in your endocrine system include type 1 diabetes, type 2 diabetes, hypoglycemia, goiter, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Graves’ disease, adrenal fatigue, chronic fatigue, and many more. Natural endocrine health treatments can help you manage these conditions.
What Is Adrenal Fatigue?
Your adrenal glands are endocrine glands, which regulate your blood pressure, how your body uses minerals like potassium and sodium, your response to stress, and your heartbeat, among others. When you suffer from adrenal fatigue, your adrenal glands basically become tired and don’t function as well as they should.
If you’re an otherwise healthy individual who feels tired or run down, and dependent on caffeine or other stimulants to make it through the day, you may be suffering from adrenal fatigue.
Natural Solutions for Low Sex Drive
If you’re suffering from a low sex drive, it could be related to your endocrine health. This is often accompanied by a low mood, which is also tied to your endocrine health.
Endocrine issues often result in your body functioning more sluggishly, and as a result, your reproductive organs move more slowly as well, which causes your reproductive health to suffer. This can lead to infertility, erectile dysfunction, and other sexual inadequacy disorders.
Does Stress Cause Health Issues?
Stress is a major contributor to endocrine imbalance. Dr. Nardini examines the various stressors that affect his patients, in order to determine what is causing the imbalance in the first place. These can include dietary factors, mental/emotional stress, pharmaceutical medications, and many others. If you experience hot flashes, insomnia, low sex drive, or chronic fatigue, you may be suffering from an endocrine health issue.
It is not always obvious to us when our endocrine glands are out of balance. But when you see Dr. Nardini, you can be assured you are properly and thoroughly assessed, so that the right naturopathic endocrine health treatments can be recommended to restore your optimal endocrine function.
