Hormone Imbalance Treatment

Banner Graphic

Hormones are chemical messengers that play a crucial role in various bodily functions, including metabolism, growth, mood regulation and reproductive health. 

When there’s an imbalance in the production or activity of hormones, it can lead to a range of health issues.

We take a comprehensive look at your hormones, such as oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone, as well as adrenal and thyroid hormones. Using functional testing, we can isolate the hormones that are out of balance to find out when and how they impact your health. Treatments can include bio-identical hormone replacement as well as herbal and nutritional hormone support.

Diagnosing and testing for Hormone Imbalance

The first step to get help if you suspect you have a hormonal imbalance is to book your wellness kickstarter. See our unique approach to treating Hormone Imbalance here.

Irregular Menstrual Cycles

Irregular menstrual cycles could mean your period is coming very frequently, infrequently or not at all. This could be due to hormonal conditions such as PCOS, thyroid dysfunction, high oestrogen levels and poor oestrogen clearance or low progesterone.

Weight Changes

Stubborn weight that wont shift no matter what could be due to your hormones—low thyroid function might be the culprit.

Skin Issues

Hormonal imbalances can contribute to acne, dry skin and even eczema.


Not being able to fall pregnant or maintain a pregnancy can be a sign of hormonal imbalance. Supporting both male and female hormones can help improve chances of conception.

What is the best medicine for hormone imbalance?

Functional and integrative medicine is considered one of the best approaches for hormone imbalance as it focuses on finding the root cause and customising personalised treatment plans.

Can you fix hormone imbalance at home?

We recommend consulting with a health practitioner, like the ones at Merge,  to ensure a thorough evaluation.

What does hormone imbalance feel like?

General symptoms include fatigue, weight gain and depression. Women may experience irregular menstrual cycles and fertility issues, whereas men can experience a reduced libido and even a decrease in muscle mass and strength.

How do you treat hormone imbalance naturally?

At Merge Health, we focus on a holistic approach—adopting a healthy, balanced diet and lifestyle alongside supplementation—ensuring a safe and effective method to managing hormonal imbalances naturally.

How do I get rid of oestrogen dominance?

Talk to a health practitioner trained in functional and integrative medicine at Merge Health. We focus on restoring balance and addressing the root causes of oestrogen dominance through functional testing, integrative medicine and nutrition.

What are the symptoms of excess oestrogen?

Oestrogen excess can lead to various health issues, including menstrual irregularities such as heavy bleeding and period pain, weight gain and mood swings.

How quickly can you reverse oestrogen excess?

Everyone’s body is different. It’s important to approach the process of reversing oestrogen excess with patience and focus on consistent, long-term changes rather than quick fixes. 

At Merge Health, we view oestrogen excess as poor oestrogen clearance — the body’s reduced ability to effectively break down and eliminate oestrogen, resulting in hormone imbalance.

We work with you to improve oestrogen metabolism and poor clearance by balancing all hormones, supporting healthy oestrogen levels through functional medicine nutrition.
