Are your hormones out of balance?
Are Your Hormones Out of Balance?
Hormones — such as oestrogen, testosterone, adrenaline and insulin — are extremely important chemical messengers that affect many aspects of your overall health. Hormones are secreted by various glands and organs, including your thyroid, adrenals, pituitary, ovaries, testicles and pancreas. The entire endocrine system works together to control the level of hormones circulating throughout your body, and if one or more is even slightly imbalanced it can cause widespread, major health problems.
Conventional treatments for hormonal imbalances usually include synthetic hormone replacement therapies, birth control pill, insulin injections, thyroid medications and more. Unfortunately, for the majority of people suffering from hormonal disorders, relying on these types of synthetic treatments often does three things:
1. It makes people dependent on taking prescription drugs for the rest of their lives in order to keep symptoms under control.
2. It simply masks the patient’s symptoms, but doesn’t solve them, which means that the patient can continue to develop abnormalities in other areas of the body while the disorder progresses.
3. It causes a higher risk for serious side effects such as stroke, osteoporosis, anxiety, reproductive problems, cancer and more.
Signs & Symptoms of Hormonal Imbalance
Some of the most common signs and symptoms of hormone imbalances include:
• Infertility and irregular periods
• Weight gain or weight loss (that’s unexplained and not due to intentional changes in your diet)
• Depression and anxiety
• Low libido
• Changes in appetite
• Digestive issues
• Hair loss and hair thinning
Symptoms of hormonal imbalances can range dramatically depending on what type of disorder or illness they cause. For example, high oestrogen can contribute to problems that include endometriosis and reproductive issues, while symptoms of diabetes often include weight gain, changes in appetite, nerve damage and problems with eyesight.
Some specific problems associated with some of the most common hormonal imbalances include:
• Oestrogen dominance: changes in sleep patterns, changes in weight and appetite, higher perceived stress, slowed metabolism
• Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): infertility, weight gain, higher risk for diabetes, acne, abnormal hair growth
• Low oestrogen: low sex drive, reproductive problems, menstrual irregularity, changes in mood
• Hypothyroidism: slowed metabolism, weight gain, fatigue, anxiety, irritability, digestive issues, irregular periods
• Low testosterone: erectile dysfunction, muscle loss, weight gain, fatigue, mood-related problems
• Hyperthyroidism & Grave’s Disease, anxiety, thinning hair, weight loss, IBS, trouble sleeping, irregular heartbeats
• Diabetes: weight gain, nerve damage (neuropathy), higher risk for vision loss, fatigue, trouble breathing, dry mouth, skin problems
• Adrenal Exhaustion: fatigue, muscle aches and pains, anxiety and depression, trouble sleeping, brain fog, reproductive problems
Risk Factors & Causes of Hormonal Imbalances
Hormonal imbalances are multi-factorial disorders, meaning they are caused by a combination of factors such as your diet, medical history, genetics, stress levels and exposure to toxins from your environment. Some of the major contributors to hormonal imbalances include:
• Toxicity (exposure to pesticides, heavy metals, hydrocarbons, EMF, cigarettes, excessive alcohol and harmful chemicals)
• Opportunistic infections such as viruses, bacteria, fungi and parasites
• Food Allergies and gut issues: An expanding field of new research shows that your gut health plays a significant role in hormone regulation. If you have Leaky Gut Syndrome or a lack of beneficial probiotic bacteria lining your intestinal wall, you’re more susceptible to hormonal problems, including diabetes and obesity. That’s because inflammation usually stems from your gut and then impacts nearly every aspect of your health.
• High levels of prolonged stress and a lack of enough sleep and rest
• Being overweight or obese
• High levels of inflammation caused by a poor diet and a sedentary lifestyle
• Genetic susceptibility
