Signs and symptoms of hormonal imbalance include:

  • Irregular periods
  • Heavy periods
  • Weight gain
  • Endometriosis
  • PCOS
  • Irritability and mood swings
  • Unusual hair growth/ Hair loss
  • Fatigue
  • Bloating
  • Skin problem
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Insomnia

Natural Treatment of Women’s hormones Sydney is a very effective way of treating the underlying cause of hormonal imbalances. Naturopathic medicine aims to support detoxification pathways through diet, supplementations and exercise to enable the body to balance hormones naturally.


Histamine is a compound in the body, which is released in response to injury, inflammation, allergic reactions and autoimmunity. Histamine is also high in certain foods including fermented foods, bone broths, aged cheeses, cured meats, tomatoes, shellfish, citrus fruit and chocolate. If histamine builds up in the body it causes many symptoms including headache, migraine, insomnia, anxiety, depression, itchy skin, hives, bloating, diarrhoea and nausea.

Part of the Histamine intolerance treatment is to eliminate these high histamine foods from the diet and support with anti-histamine foods including basil fennel, thyme, ginger, garlic, apples, broccoli, watercress and turmeric.


One of the most important findings from medical research over the past several years has been the significant link between inflammation and the onset of depression. Natural treatment for depression includes reducing inflammation in the body by:
