Kinesiology for Tweens & Teens -

Hormonal Challenges

Kinesiology is considered to be a complete form of complimentary wellness care.  It uses gentle muscle testing to look for, understand and aid in supporting any imbalance within the body.  

Hormonal Challenges

The term 'hormonal imbalance' seems to be used many times to try to explain a multitude of symptoms and it can feel very confusing as to which way to turn.  Hormones dictate our bodily functions including; appetite, sleep patterns, how we respond to stress, whether we feel happy or upset, and how 'well' we feel.  

Tweens and Teens can find it a challenge to talk about their changing bodies.  So how do you know when moods and changes in appearance have gone beyond what is typical and may indicate a health issue?

There are symptoms which can provide signs towards a hormone imbalance or endocrine disorder, for teenagers and these include: 

  • Increased sensitivity to cold or heat

  • Constipation or more frequent bowel movements

  • Dry skin

  • Puffy or rounded face

  • Unexplained weight loss

  • Increased or decreased heart rate

  • Muscle weakness

  • Frequent urination

  • Increased thirst

  • Pain or stiffness in muscles or joints

  • Hair loss or fine, brittle hair

  • Increased hunger

  • Depression or anxiety

  • Blurred vision

  • Sweating

  • Purple or pink stretch marks

  • Hot flashes

  • Sugar cravings

  • Fluid retention

  • Headache

  • Brain fog

  • Insomnia

The endocrine system is a network of glands that produce and release hormones that help to control many important body functions.  Each gland releases specific hormones into your bloodstream. 

If just one of your glands is off balance it will have a knock on effect to the others and the upset to this delicate balance can lead to an endocrine disorder / hormonal challenge. 

What do sessions involve? 

As I assess the muscles, I will create an individual wellness plan for your child which may have the following suggestions: 

  • Food supplements suitable for children

  • Dietary changes including advice on food and chemical sensitivities 

  • Gentle relaxation techniques
