Hormonal Imbalances Can Lead To Low Energy
Have you recently noticed a feeling of reduced energy? Many women experience this, and most don’t do anything about it. Some even refuse to believe that it’s happening, or don’t believe that it’s a real condition that can be treated. A lack of energy often comes from an hormonal imbalance, and this can be reversed. Treating hormonal imbalances can be a simple process , and the best part is that it can usually be done naturally.
What Exactly Are Hormones?
Hormones are chemicals that travel through the blood stream, carrying messages from one part of the body to another. Hormones are secreted by endocrine glands, which, for women, include the pancreas, the thyroid, the adrenals, and the ovaries, among others. Hormones help the body control many functions, including metabolism, digestion, and of course, sexual functions.
Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms
A hormonal imbalance can lead to any of a long list of problems. An imbalance can cause fatigue and insomnia, headache, irritability, moodiness and depression, low sex drive, a foggy brain, and weight-related problems. Of course, an imbalance is very unlikely to cause all of these problems, and experiencing these symptoms does not necessarily mean you have an hormonal imbalance.
However, this list shows that the problems caused by an hormonal imbalance are often relatively major problems, and should be taken very seriously.
In order to know the solution, you first need to find the problem. Simply knowing you have an hormonal imbalance is a good start, but generally isn’t enough in itself. Before you start treatment, you should see a doctor and have tests run. Depending on the type of hormonal imbalance you’re experiencing, natural solutions may include increasing your intake of magnesium, licorice root, iodine, tyrosine, and vitamins C and B6. Some types of imbalances can also be resolved or reduced by effectively managing stress and diet.
