Are you suffering from hormonal imbalance?

Do you just feel off?

Nothing in particular is wrong. But things just aren’t right and you can’t put your finger on it.

Maybe you’re grumpier than you used to be, your skin isn’t as flawless, or you just feel tired all the time.

Did you know that hormonal imbalances aren’t reserved for only teenagers going through puberty and women going through their menstrual cycle? Yes, the reason for you feeling off could in fact be a case of imbalanced hormones.

Hormones are chemicals in every human’s body that affect your physical and mental wellbeing. Factors such as diet, exercise, and age can affect your hormones.

Not sure if you’re suffering from a hormonal imbalance?

Here Are 3 Signs Your Hormones Aren’t Balanced

#1. Fluctuating weight

You’re gaining weight at an unnatural pace. This isn’t you purposely trying to gain muscle, this is unaccounted for weight gains.

#2. Constant fatigue

If you’re feeling constantly tired, no matter how many hours you sleep — hormones might be to blame. The main hormone responsible for this is thyroxin, which is excreted by your thyroid.

#3. Stomach aches

An imbalance in your hormones can affect the flora in your GI tract. This disrupts the entire balance of your digestive system and can lead to irritable bowel syndrome, gastritis, ulcers, and more.

Natural Ways To Help Balance Your Hormones

If any of the 3 signs above sound familiar to you, try out these 3 strategies to naturally balance your hormones (without expensive and questionable medicine).

#1. Check your diet

If you’re not getting enough nutrients from your diet, your body won’t be able to produce the right amount of hormones to properly function. For example, if you’re not consuming enough protein, you’ll be low in ghrelin (a hormone that manages hunger). This can lead to excessive eating and unnatural weight gain.

#2. Exercise

If you’re not exercising regularly, your body’s insulin sensitivity may take a hit. By exercising regularly, you ensure your body is burning the glycogen that is already stored in your body. This boosts your insulin sensitivity and lowers your blood sugar levels.

#3. De-stress

When you’re extremely stressed out, your body releases hormones such as cortisol and adrenaline into your body. These can be good when you’re dealing with a one-off situation. But when you’re constantly stressing out, things start to go bad. You can begin experiencing stomach pains, weight gain, and a weakened immune system.

To combat this, strategies like meditation help to de-stress and maintain normal hormone levels.
