There is a balancing act in our bodies that impacts how we feel every single day. From our energy and sleep patterns to how our hair, skin, and nails look, hormones are behind the scenes making it all happen. Unfortunately, this is a delicate system that can be thrown off balance and create chaos in our lives.
There are many things that can disrupt our hormones, including things in our environment, medical conditions, and the aging process itself. The impact of hormonal imbalances can also be subtle at first, so people don’t always realize their hormones are as out of balance as they truly are.
It’s important to recognize hormonal imbalances as soon as possible because the longer they are out of balance, the more severe your symptoms can get. This can have a large impact on your quality of life and make it more difficult to treat as well.
So what kind of symptoms should you be watching for? Here are some common signs of hormonal imbalance:
- Lack of energy and chronic fatigue
- Inability to focus
- Weight gain and difficulty losing weight
- Hot flashes
- Loss of libido
- Mood swings and depression
- Thinning hair, dull skin, brittle nails
If you experience any of these symptoms, you should get your hormones tested. If your levels are not optimal, you can use Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) to bring them back in line. This medical treatment utilizes hormones derived from all-natural plant-based sources that are chemically equivalent to the hormones we make naturally.
