How Hormonal Imbalances Impact Your Holistic Health
Your hormones ensure that your body runs like well-oiled machine. Almost every bodily function is controlled by hormones, and many health issues can be linked to a hormonal imbalance. If you have too much or too little of certain hormone, you might begin to feel “off,” notice issues with your emotional health, or struggle to complete daily tasks. Restoring balance is essential for helping you feel and function your best.
The Common Link Between Issues That Seem Unconnected
Since your hormones impact so many different bodily systems and functions, hormonal imbalances often present themselves in a disorganized way. Maybe you notice that you’ve suddenly put on some weight, are experiencing hot flashes, and have stiff muscles and joints. Once we’ve determined that your hormones are causing dysfunction, the next step is to identify what’s contributing to the imbalance.
Chronic Stress Leads Excess Cortisol
Stress is a main cause of hormonal imbalances. When you’re stressed all the time, your body produces too much cortisol, which impacts other hormone levels.
Your Diet Fuels Your Hormones
The foods you eat directly impacts your hormone levels. Red meat, processed foods, dairy, soy, and caffeine can all negatively impact your hormonal health in excess.
Hormonal Imbalances Can Weaken Your Immune System
Your hormones direct your immune system. If you have a hormonal imbalance, your body will struggle to fight off infections and may develop an autoimmune condition.
Hormone Dysfunction Is Most Common in Women
Sex hormones play a vital role in how women develop and function. Imbalances in estrogen and progesterone can have a severe effect on many areas of women’s health.
