Do you have a hormone imbalance?
Many of us go through life experiencing hormonal imbalances. We are told that migraines, feeling tired and stressed, and having foggy thinking is just part of being a woman. We are dismissed by others, including the medical profession, because these symptoms are so common. But, just because something is common does not mean it is normal. More importantly, once we acknowledge that this is not normal, we can start to look for ways to resolve these issues.
When we think of the word hormone, we often think of sex hormones such as estrogen, testosterone and progesterone. While these hormones play an important part in our human experience, there are many other hormones that help regulate metabolism, digestion and many other functions. These hormones are all interconnected and if one hormone is out of balance, there can be a ripple effect.
Our lives are packed full of responsibilities and stress. We eat processed foods, use artificial lighting and use chemicals in everything, from food to personal care products. Our modern lifestyle can upset the delicate balance of our natural internal chemistry.
So, what can you do about it? Here are some simple things you can start to do right now.
- Eat whole food, not processed food.
- Get outside in the sun in the morning
- Get better sleep by going to bed a little earlier.
- Learn how to manage your stress levels.
Doing these simple things consistently can help get you started on a path to better health. If you are interested in learning more about hormonal imbalance and how it may be affecting your stress and pain, ask for the Hormone Questionnaire at firstname.lastname@example.org.
