Get Into It: What’s Causing Your Hormonal Imbalance and How to Treat It
We’ve all been there, girl! Sometimes you just feel a little off. Balance is essential in every part of our lives, especially when it comes to our hormones. Female hormonal imbalance occurs when your hormones rise above or drop below normal levels in the bloodstream. If they aren’t balanced, you’re likely not going to feel like the best version of yourself.
What Are Hormones?
Hormones are also known as your body’s chemical messengers because they help regulate so many of your body’s important functions. Experiencing mood swings? Feel like your metabolism has changed? Having a hard time sleeping? Not able to regulate your stress or feelings of depression? Hormones regulate all of these things, along with heart rate, body temperature, growth, reproductive cycles among other functions.
If you're not exactly sure you’re experiencing hormonal imbalance, here are some key signs:
- Low libido
- Mood swings
- Changes in appetite
- Difficulty concentrating
- Weight gain
- Weight loss
- Long-lasting fatigue
Keep in mind that hormones typically fluctuate at predictable and naturally occurring times, such as menstruation, puberty, pregnancy, and menopause. In addition to these, medical conditions, lifestyle habits, and environmental conditions can be other causes of hormonal imbalance. Here are a few:
- Unhealthy diet
- Excessive stress
- High percentage of body fat
- Overactive or underactive thyroid
- Birth control
Balance, baby, balance. Balance is key to helping you feel like yourself again. While there isn’t an all-inclusive hormone imbalance test, you can still take control. After speaking to your healthcare provider, they’ll typically start with a routine medical exam, ask about your symptoms, and recommend a few tests. Here are a few other things you can do to help you get back to being YOU!
