3 Quick Lessons on Hormones
1. Don’t blame everything going on in your body as the fault of your hormones. There are nutritional balances that can be corrected to relieve symptoms that you only think are hormonally related. When the body is fatigued, it will draw fuel from multiple sources in your body. When left depleted long enough the body starts to give you signs or signals that there is a problem brewing. Since it gets worse each month at the time of your cycle, women automatically blame their hormone levels. Symptoms can range from mood swings, insomnia to weight gain. These are not exclusive to menstruation or menopause and andropause.
2. Chronic Stress reduces several hormone levels for periods of time. If you have created your living style around stress, you may not even be aware of it. You have come to know your energy output as normal. If you spend your day on the go, go, go, and when you stop, you drop – you are running on adrenaline or stress mode. This Chronic Stress is depleting all the nutrients your body needs to live a normal life. Many of you have never experienced what normal is. It is time to evaluate your life and reduce stress. Find something like yoga or meditation to help relieve the mind talk and help you to relax.
3. Diet plays a very large part in hormone imbalance. People that have conditions such as Metabolic Syndrome, Syndrome X, or Insulin Resistance have a desperate need to change their dietary intake. The insulin our body produces coordinates with both our sex and stress hormones. Many are looking to the gluten-free diet for help and that is a good start. It takes a little work as it can give you withdrawal symptoms at first. It is wise to get help! Our Nutritional Program has been helping people for the last 30 years when nothing else would.
