While some diseases are easy to detect with clear cut symptoms, hormonal imbalance has many different faces. This is one of the greatest reasons why hormonal imbalance affects so many people and why it goes untreated. Hormonal imbalance can mean depression, fatigue, hair loss, mood swings, cravings, low libido, anxiety, insomnia, and weariness to name a few symptoms. Yet, a lot of these symptoms can be misdiagnosed as something else.
In women, the most plausible reason for hormone imbalance lies within improper levels of progesterone and estrogen in the body. Both of these hormones must act in balance, otherwise a person’s health is greatly affected and some of the previously mentioned symptoms will start to occur. Factors such as stress, dietary patterns, exercise patterns and ovulation patterns will affect the hormone levels a person’s body can produce. By exercising at least four times a week, getting 7-8 hours of sleep a night, maintaining a healthy diet with a generous amount of fruits and vegetables, and dealing with stress effectively, you will be less likely to have hormonal issues.
However, still, there are sometimes outside factors that will yield hormonal imbalance no matter what you do. For instance, taking birth control pills can lower levels of progesterone and testosterone, using certain cosmetics, and eating mostly non-organic foods and animal products with excessive amounts of estrogen can alter a person’s hormone levels. The best way to regulate your hormone levels and be rid of all of these symptoms is to get on a personal hormonal regimen.
