Hormonal imbalance And Stress Related Illnesses

Hormones are essential chemical messengers that are released from endocrine glands. These messages communicate to tissues and organs and have a direct effect on growth and development, mood, reproduction and sexual function.

Signs of hormonal imbalance are fatigue, depression, anxiety, irritability, inability to deal with stress, being ‘sensitive”, weight gain in some, body temperature irregularities, poor sleeping patterns, low libido, sweating, cravings and digestive problems.

Most hormonal imbalance comes from a form of stress. Treating stress-related disorders is what Dr.Fox mostly works with via correcting adrenal function, resetting circadian rhythm and correcting hormonal imbalance via bioidentical hormone replacement herbal medicine, lifestyle changes, diet, and nutritional supplementation.



Stress is one of the major causes of hormonal imbalance, fatigue and mood disorder. Stressors that negatively impact adrenal function such as mental, physical, psycho/ spiritual, nutritional and environmental stress all impact hormonal balance. Other disruptors of the endocrine system are poor diet, nutritional imbalance, insomnia and chemical disruptors such as certain chemicals, plastics and heavy metals.


Dr Fox is a highly trained Chinese medical practitioner with specialised training in hormonal balancing and clinical nutritional. Your hormonal balance and ratios will be tested via a range of pathology tests, which will aid in determining the root cause of your imbalance and will indicate where to start in correcting it.
We understand that hormonal imbalances can occur in excess or deficiency states. Therefore, our approach varies depending on the specific symptoms and hormonal profile of each patient. For instance, when treating high levels of certain hormones, there will be a focus on dampening the “flight and flight” response while clearing the liver and gut. Conversely, for deficiencies, herbal medicine, bio-identical hormones, dietary and nutritional supplements are used to nourish the glands and rebuild hormones.
Dr Fox has a focus in addressing various hormonal imbalances, including adrenal fatigue, thyroid imbalances, immune and autoimmune disorders, and sex hormone imbalances. Our aim is to help you achieve optimal hormonal balance, leading to improved energy, mood, and overall health.
