Extra pounds, anxiety, chronic fatigue, and bloating, might be all signaling a hormonal imbalance in the body.
Dr. Bryan Walsh explains that the function of the hormones is critical to literally every body system, as:
• Estrogen and progesterone are neuroprotective, meaning they help brain function, reduce brain inflammation and help with cognitive function. There is also evidence that estrogen may prevent Alzheimer’s.
- There is an intimate relationship between hormones and neurotransmitters, which means hormones can have a major impact on mood, willpower, and motivation
- There is a strong correlation between hormone and bone metabolism
- Thyroid hormone, your metabolism hormone, works better when progesterone is functioning optimally
- Estrogen is cardioprotective in women
- Progesterone helps regulate the immune response
Most importantly, the beneficial effects of hormones occur when they are in balance. In excess or in deficiency, all hormones can have negative consequences.”
Therefore, hormones regulate our metabolism, respiration, tissue functions, movement, growth, digestion, mood, and stress, any imbalance can be a serious health issue that should be solved as soon as possible.
These imbalances are most often caused by genetics, stress, poor diets, environmental pollutants, and medical history, as well as birth control pills, thyroid medications, insulin injections, synthetic hormone replacement therapies, etc.
These are the most common symptoms of hormonal imbalances:
