Hormonal imbalance can make you feel like you are on a roller coaster.
Too much or too little hormone can significantly affect how you feel.
At Renew® Health and Wellness, we fully understand the roles of hormones in your body. By identifying a hormone imbalance, we offer you the key to bringing your sex hormone levels back into balance.
Why Do Hormone Imbalances Occur in the First Place?
There are many reasons why you may have your hormones out of balance. One reason is the natural markers in a woman’s life, such as menstruation, puberty, pregnancy, and menopause.
Otherwise, there are many other reasons why you may have your hormones out of balance. These include:
- Staying stressed out
- Eating unhealthy foods
- Body fat levels are too high
- Environmental toxins
- Adrenal gland disorder
- Severe allergic reactions
- Using anabolic steroid medications
- Having a thyroid that is over or underactive
- Taking birth control medications
- Chemotherapy or radiation
- The thyroid gland produces a few hormones
- Thyroid hormone out of balance
Signs and Symptoms of a Hormonal Imbalance
Perhaps the most telltale symptom of a hormonal balance in women is a noticeable weight gain.
Many women find that no matter if they change their diet or include exercise as part of their day, nothing seems to make a difference in their waistline. That is because hormone issues are at the root of the problem, not calories.
Correcting your hormonal imbalance will put you back on a fast track to success.
Having your hormones out of balance affects your entire system, including your body and mind.
Depression or anxiety is also a warning sign in those with a hormonal imbalance.
For instance, let’s say your estrogen levels have dropped, making you feel sad or irritated. You go into the kitchen to find something to eat that might make you feel better. Later on, instead of taking a walk, the couch might seem more inviting.
Many times, as a result of being overweight and having a hormonal imbalance, women experience low libido. Perhaps her testosterone levels have tapered off, and sex doesn’t seem attractive anymore.
This domino effect can have a devastating impact on a woman’s self-esteem. A marriage or relationship may pay the price when vaginal dryness becomes problematic.
Mood swings are also indicative of hormones being thrown out of balance. When your emotions are off, things in your life can sometimes feel chaotic. That is because estrogen affects essential brain chemicals such as serotonin and dopamine.
Fatigue is also commonly reported by those with unbalanced hormones. That only feeds back into the situation, as you may have become too tired to get enough exercise.
An excess of progesterone in your system tends to make you sleepy. If your thyroid isn’t producing enough hormones, you likely won’t have enough energy to get through your day.
Another indicator is if you feel intolerant to temperatures that are too cold or too warm. You may find yourself with cold hands and feet on a day with relatively mild weather.
You may notice some hair loss or that your hair is thinning out during menopause, or when your levels of estrogen have plummeted. The good news is that when you start BHRT therapy, your natural hair growth is stimulated once again.
Night sweats can be a sign that your hormones are out of balance. This hormonal imbalance can cause various health issues, including fatigue, mood swings, sleep disturbances, depression, and anxiety.
If you experience night sweats and feel like something else is going on in your body besides just feeling hot, it could be worth taking a closer look at the hormonal imbalances you may be experiencing. Getting to the root of these hormonal problems is vital to restore health and balance.
Hot flashes are a sign of hormonal imbalance, and when hormones are out of balance, your body will react in various ways. The onset of hot flashes is one way the body expresses that it isn’t functioning at optimal capacity due to hormonal fluctuations.
Be mindful that this can signal an underlying hormonal issue, and you must closely monitor any problems related to hormonal imbalances.
If persistent hot flashes start affecting your daily life, it’s time to seek medical help, as a hormonal imbalance can lead to more severe problems such as weight gain and chronic fatigue.
Menstrual cycle irregularity is often a sign of hormonal imbalance, where hormones are out of balance and are not functioning correctly in the body.
Women should note if their periods become overly heavy or excessively light, skip months, or suddenly last longer than usual. That can signify that their hormonal levels are off and need to be evaluated by their healthcare professional to prevent any issues from arising.
Women can combat irregular periods and restore hormonal balance before it leads to more severe conditions by addressing hormonal imbalances while still in the early stages.
The following are additional signs that are commonly experienced as a result of a hormonal imbalance:
- Dry, coarse skin and hair
- Numbness and tingling in your hands
- Extreme thirst and frequent urination
What Is BHRT, and How Can It Help?
A hormonal imbalance in your body can have far-reaching effects that can dramatically affect your emotional and physical well-being.
As mentioned above, hormonal imbalance in women has been linked to mood swings and depression, as well as hormonal imbalances that cause weight gain and other health concerns.
Everyone’s hormones are out of balance from time to time. Recognizing the signs of hormonal imbalance early on can help you find ways to naturally bring yourself back into balance before significant health problems arise.
The good news is that you don’t have to live with these undesirable symptoms. There is a safe and effective way to replace the hormones that aging has taken away.
BHRT (Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy) is a natural way to return to feeling normal again.
Derived from plant-based estrogens, BHRT is an excellent choice for those who do not wish to take synthetic hormones.
It is ideal for those with low or imbalanced hormone levels.
Bioidentical hormones can work so effectively because they have an identical chemical structure to your body’s natural hormones.
You receive the bioidentical plant hormones, and your body assumes them as your own.
Through pellet therapy, BHRT is administered safely and effectively. A tiny pellet smaller than a grain of rice will release small amounts of the chosen hormone into your bloodstream.
