Hormone Balance: Hormones like estrogen, testosterone, adrenaline, and insulin are vital chemical messengers that affect many aspects of one’s health. Hormones are secreted by various glands and organs, including the thyroid, adrenals, pituitary, ovaries, testicles, and pancreas. The entire endocrine system works together to control the level of hormones circulating throughout the body. And if one or more is imbalanced, it can cause major health problems.
The most common symptoms of hormone imbalance include:
Symptoms of hormonal imbalances can range depending on what type of disorder or illness they cause. For example, symptoms of diabetes include weight gain, appetite changes, nerve damage, and eyesight problems. Conventional treatments for hormone imbalances include synthetic hormone replacement therapies, i.e., insulin injections, thyroid medications. However, with these types of treatments comes negative effects, such as medication dependency, serious side effects like stroke, osteoporosis, anxiety, reproductive problems, cancer, and more. And with these synthetic treatments, the symptoms aren’t treated but only masked. Fortunately, there are ways to acquire hormone balance naturally. For example, stay away from oils high in omega-6 fats (safflower, sunflower, corn, canola, soybean, and peanut). Instead, utilize rich sources of natural omega-3’s (wild fish, flaxseed, chia seeds, walnuts, and grass-fed animal products).
