Here’s what’s up. Statistics show that 80 percent of women are suffering from hormonal imbalances. That means you, sister! On top of that, there are so many women who have hormonal imbalances and don’t even know it. They may attribute their tiredness, moodiness, or even significant health issues to their age or genetics. This simply isn’t true. The underlying causes of hormonal imbalances are endless; however, today we will be looking at the top two underlying causes of hormonal imbalance and what you can do to balance them naturally.
What exactly are hormones? I feel like there are a lot of misconceptions about hormones and their purpose in the body, so let’s cover that first. Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers. They travel in your bloodstream to tissues or organs. Hormones are produced by the endocrine glands, which are special groups of cells. The major endocrine glands are the pituitary, pineal, thymus, thyroid, adrenal, and pancreas. In addition, men produce hormones in their testes and women produce them in their ovaries.
Hormones are powerful. It takes only a tiny amount to cause big changes in cells or even your whole body. That is why too much or too little of a certain hormone can be serious. Symptoms of hormonal imbalances include, moodiness, acne, infertility, chronic fatigue, PMS, depression, tender breasts, anxiety, low libido, weight gain, and the list goes on! I want you to know that you don’t have to have these issues. Life is possible without feeling sluggish….or like you want to kill your husband. Balancing the hormones can seem like a daunting task, but it’s so possible when you give the body what it needs.
Okay, we are finally getting to the good part. What are the top causes of hormonal imbalances? From personal and professional experience, I’ve learned that stress is the #1 cause of hormonal imbalances. Here’s what happens. Many people live in a constant state of stress — family stress, job stress, feeling overwhelmed, dealing with anxiety, and fear of what’s going on around the world. It’s like a stress party that none of us want to be at. When we are in this state (even as little as once per day), stress hormones are released. When these hormones are being released on a daily or even hourly basis they are throwing off all of the other hormones in your body. Hormones are very picky. They like balance. When one hormone is off even a small amount, it affects everything else in the body.
The second underlying cause to hormonal imbalances is poor diet and lack of nutrition. Diet plays a key role in the hormonal system. Food provides the nutrients we need to maintain healthy body systems, including reproduction, metabolism, and detoxification of hormones. Therefore, if we don’t get enough of the right nutritious foods, our hormone balance can suffer. Again, the hormones run on a tightrope. Balance is so important to having healthy hormones. That includes eating clean and getting enough nutrition.
There are so many people who don’t even know what it feels like to be in balance. They just blame their issues on everything except the actual root of the problem. Life is messy and busy. I know. Seriously, who has time to cook, exercise daily, all while doing this life thing AND trying to reduce stress? It’s not an easy task.
