Hormone Imbalance

Hormones are incredible chemical messengers in our body that affect our brain, heart, bones, muscles, and reproductive organs and are an essential part of the workings of every cell in the human body. Hormones work best when balanced. However, hormones can become imbalanced.

Hormone imbalances are caused by:

  • Higher than average levels of stress
  • Poor food choices
  • Inadequate sleep
  • Taking synthetic hormones
  • Sedentary lifestyle (lack of movement or exercise)

How to adjust to changes as hormones naturally fluctuate?:

Each individual has a unique balance of hormones. During perimenopause and menopause this unique balance can be disrupted. Getting back into balance and feeling more yourself often includes a change in lifestyle, managing stress more effectively and sometimes supplementation.
