DO YOU HAVE A HORMONE IMBALANCE?

SYMPTOMS, CAUSES AND WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT

Your body is constantly giving you signs and signals and trying to communicate with you. For example, when you experience symptoms like mood swings, cramps, sore breasts, irregular periods, or breakouts, your body is sending you a clear message that something is out of balance.


Do you have a hormone imbalance

Your hormones are involved in every aspect of your mental, physical and emotional health.

They help to regulate your:

  • metabolism and appetite

  • reproductive cycles and sexual function

  • mood and stress levels

  • heart rate

  • sleep cycles

  • body temperature

  • general growth and development

Whilst it is normal for our hormones to fluctuate throughout our life, they can also be affected by our diet, lifestyle and external factors.

If one hormone is out of balance, it can throw off the entire show!

Some symptoms related to hormone imbalance have become increasingly common and, unfortunately, sometimes even considered "normal" or "part of being a woman"!


Well, let me tell you that is absolutely unacceptable!

I know it's tempting to take a pill or do some other quick fixes to deal with these symptoms, but unfortunately, these band-aid solutions don't address the root cause of the imbalance.

When you learn how to become a detective of your symptoms, you'll better understand what your hormones are trying to tell you. It will become easier to identify the hormones that are likely out of balance, get to the root cause and start healing and restoring the balance holistically.

CAUSES

Some of the most common causes of hormone imbalance are:
  • chronic stress

  • lack of good quality sleep

  • poor diet and nutrition

  • hormone-disrupting food + drinks (sugar, refined carbs, processed foods, coffee, alcohol, etc.)

  • blood sugar imbalance (overeating, skipping meals, dieting, too much sugar, bad carbs, caffeine, etc.)

  • being overweight

  • lack of exercise

  • thyroid issues

  • compromised gut health (food sensitivities, digestive issues, weight changes, fatigue, skin irritation, autoimmune conditions, etc.)

  • medications (oral contraceptives, hormone drugs, antibiotics, over the counter + prescription meds, etc.)

  • exposure to toxins, pollutants and endocrine-disrupting chemicals (plastics, food packaging, personal care and beauty products, fragrances, preservatives, pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, etc.)

  • an overtaxed, sluggish liver

  • elevated inflammation

  • an existing medical condition (PCOS, early menopause, cancer, diabetes, eating disorders, autoimmune disease, etc.)

  • chemotherapy and radiation

When it comes to health conditions associated with hormone imbalance, it's sometimes hard to know whether the imbalance caused the condition, or the condition caused the hormone imbalance…it's a case of what came first, the chicken or the egg!?

Symptoms can lead to more severe health conditions like:

Diabetes, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, adrenal fatigue, PCOS, endometriosis, infertility, early onset of perimenopause and menopause, cancer, autoimmune disease, heart disease and other health problems.


That's why it is so important to be aware of any symptoms, so you can get the necessary tests done and find out which hormones and body functions are out of balance.



WHAT TO DO ABOUT IT?


Hormone balance is deeply connected to our environment, lifestyle and the food we eat.

Restoring hormone balance involves:

  • eating a hormone-balancing diet

  • taking care of your stress levels

  • engaging in regular exercise

  • getting enough rest

  • liver detoxification

  • restoring your gut health

  • lifestyle and emotional wellbeing

  • weight management
