Everyone is familiar with hormone changes that occur both during puberty and again during menopause (or andropause in men). When this happens in adults it can adversely affect a person’s weight, their mood, brain function, energy, and sleep, just to name a few.
If you’ve tried synthetic hormones and experienced the unpleasant and sometimes dangerous side effects that include weight gain, severe mood swings, spotting, headaches, bloating, breast cancer, or allergic responses, and you’re looking for a safer solution, there are safer processes that work.
Balancing hormones naturally is not an overnight process, but for most people it has works extremely well and they are happy they found a safer, healthier, and more natural alternative.
The key to balancing hormones lies in understanding the ‘endocrine system’ and the ‘HPA axis’. The HPA axis is the ‘hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis’ and it is responsible for regulating the endocrine system which in turn determines your body’s ability to keep your hormones balanced. When any of the glandular organs in the HPA axis become ‘stressed’ or imbalanced, it causes a cascade of imbalances within the other glandular organs both in the HPA axis and the endocrine system. When this happens it often leads to conditions like sex hormone imbalances, thyroid hormone imbalances, and weight issues to name a few.
Maintaining an accurate level of hormones in the body is an essential part of good health. There are a variety of hormone tests that are available for us to correctly analyze these levels and identify how to best tailor our approach so you can get your hormones back into balance.
