If You Have These Symptoms You Have a Hormonal Imbalance – Here’s How To Restore The Balance Of Hormones

Hormones are chemical messengers in the human body. They are initially produced by the endocrine glands, and later secreted into the blood stream. Each hormone has a distinctive role, and they all create an essential unit in the organism. 

Oversecretion disrupts the function of vital organs, triggering a chaos called ‘hormonal imbalance.’
Hormonal imbalance in women is commonly caused by the imbalance of estrogen and progesterone, the most essential hormones in females. Such imbalance is accompanied with specific symptoms and disorders.
According to scientists, the causes of hormonal imbalance are divided into 2 groups
Internal or physiological, and
External causes
Causes of physiological background usually involve changes in the reproductive cycle. Estrogen and progesterone are secreted in a specific schedule, in accordance with menstrual cycle and ovulation. Once this natural process is hindered, hormone levels tend to go crazy.
When it comes to external factors, hormonal imbalance in women is sometimes triggered by additional, external sources of estrogen, other than the hormone that is naturally secreted in the body.
Unfortunately, many women deal with hormonal imbalance before they even reach their menopause.
This strange phenomenon occurs as a result of numerous factors, including:
  • Overexposure to xenoestrogens contained in cleaning products, soaps, sprays, herbicides and cosmetic products
  • Passive lifestyle and insufficient physical activity
  • Matter of genes
  • Obesity
  • Thyroid malfunction
  • Excessive consumption of fatty, salty, or processed foods. The same applies to foods high in sugar, caffeine-rich products and refined sugar
  • Specific diet regimens, such as diets low in fat
  • Western diet, which means consuming hormone-stuffed meat and dairy products
  • Excessive consumption of alcohol
  • Stressful lifestyle
  • Contraception
  • Hormone therapies
  • Hysterectomy
  • Missed ovulation
  • Overexposure to pesticides, herbicides, and harsh chemicals
  • Living in polluted areas and overexposure to environmental toxins

15 or more symptoms – There is a possibility that you are experiencing a serious hormonal imbalance. Schedule an appointment at your doctor’s
Proper diagnose is essential

Even the slightest possibility of having a hormonal imbalance requires a visit at an endocrinologist. You will be asked to do several hormonal tests to examine the function of your thyroid hormone, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol and the rest of your hormones.
These tests usually require a urine or blood sample. Urine tests are more common in cases of pregnancy or ovulation.
Be careful, anything you take without consulting your doctor may cause severe complications, regardless of whether it is herbal tea or synthetic medication.
Regular therapy
The first thing you will be asked to do is introduce some healthy changes to your lifestyle. You will also undergo a special therapy that is supposed to restore your hormonal balance.
Cancer patients are first advised to have a surgery and get the tumor removed, and later they receive a suitable therapy.
Consider doing light exercises, get proper rest, and free yourself from psychological stress.
Women should remain active, drink plenty of fresh juices and water, cut off fatty and sugary foods prior their menstrual cycle.
Proper diet is your salvation
Restoring your hormonal balance is a tough process, and persistency is of key importance here.
Switch to a healthier diet. In that way you will help your body regain its harmony.
Cut off or at least reduce the intake of sugar, caffeine, and alcohol. Avoid stressful situations and increase your physical activity.
‘Bad’ foods could be the reason of your hormonal imbalance. Have you thought of that? Excessive consumption of sugar stimulates the production of insulin, estrogen and testosterone. The same applies to flour.
You may want to reduce the intake of dairy and gluten. These are common triggers of inflammation and endocrine malfunction. Milk contains more than 60 hormones that are held as responsible for hormonal imbalances, not to mention all the hormones and antibiotics that are commonly added to its natural hormone content.
Stay away from xenobiotics, harsh chemicals and environmental toxins. Your health is at first place.
Go all-natural and organic. Filter your water. Consult a nutritionists and get your very own 10-day detox program done.
Being healthy requires no effort. Change the way you live today to postpone your appointment at your doctor’s.
