I am pleased to tell you that both my skin and tummy are much better. The stress in my job and the occasional diet blips do cause the odd upset stomach but on the whole it’s good. I think coming to see you was the best thing I could have done to solve my problems and would recommend you to anyone! – Jenni
Women and Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms

Having reached that time of a woman’s life when the hormones started playing havoc, I knew that I had to take charge and get the situation sorted! The peri-menopause is the first time that I felt my health and well-being were being tested. Having consulted Wilma Kirsten and discussing diet recommendations I’m feeling that I’m now back on track. I have energy and balance in my life again. What I put into my body, does make a difference! I lack discipline some of the time, but I know that investing in eating well pays dividends – Sara
What causes hormone imbalances?
Once a female reaches puberty, surges of oestrogen and progesterone are a normal part of the monthly menstrual cycle and are expected until the onset of menopause. This rush of female hormones influence our behaviour depending on the time of the natural menstrual cycle. Key to women’s health and wellbeing is keeping a balance between these two hormones. Many factors can influence the levels of the female hormones found in the body and it is known that the absence of certain key macro- and micronutrients will affect hormone release by inhibition or causing an over secretion leading to hormone levels away from the expected norm. These hormone imbalances can lead to a variety of distressing symptoms.
Which hormones can affect the female brain and behaviour?
Hormones are a natural chemical formed in the body that acts to control or regulate specific physiological processes, including growth, metabolism, and reproduction.
The female body contains many hormones including:
- Oestrogen – the number 1 female hormone
- Progesterone – the hormone that reverses the effects of oestrogen
- Testosterone – the masculine hormone
- Oxytocin – the nurturing hormone
- Cortisol – the stress hormone
- Vasopressin – the brother to testosterone and oxytocin
- DHEA – also called “the mother hormone”
- Androstenedione – the mother of testosterone in the ovaries
- Allopregnenolone – the calming, soothing, anti-stress hormone
When any of these hormones are present in too high or low concentrations symptoms of hormone imbalance may be exhibited.
I am still surprised how well my skin looks and how much better I feel in such a short space of time. Thank you again. – Jane
Common Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms
A number of symptoms are associated with an imbalance of female hormone levels and these include:
- Amenorrhoea, or the absence of menstrual periods in women of menstruating age
- Sore or tender breasts
- Painful periods or cramps
- Heavy bleeding or irregular periods
- Decreased libido
- Sleep disturbances
- Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)
- Inability to lose or gain weight
- Cravings for sweets
How can I assess my hormone balance status?
A non-invasive salivary test can measure levels of oestrogen, progesterone, melatonin, DHEA and cortisol to establish how balanced your hormones are. Contact the clinic to arrange for a specific testing kit to be sent to you for completion in the comfort of your own home.
How does the Goodbye PMS Clinic treat hormone imbalances?
Once the results of your saliva tests have been analysed, the first step is to assess, through a consultation whether your food choices are contributing to your hormonal imbalance.
Our consultations are conducted in a relaxed and sympathetic manner which allows for an open discussion with no fear of embarrassment or judgement.
Food plays a major part in hormone secretion. Overconsumption of nutrient void and calorie dense foods may wreak havoc with hormonal release, adversely affecting the fine balance required for optimal function.
Once the dietary component has been evaluated, a relevant test may be suggested to pinpoint specific imbalances and specific supplementation effectiveness.
Depending on your test results, supplementation with key nutrients may be deemed necessary. Our friendly nutrition consultant will guide you through specific dietary changes that will produce a real improvement in your symptoms.

Our nutrition consultant will take into account your lifestyle and ensure all suggested changes to your existing diet are easy to accommodate within your current routines.
PLEASE NOTE THAT TESTING IS NOT COVERED BY THE CONSULTATION FEE.
