Think of your hormones as the orchestra conductors of your whole body. Without hormonal harmony, you can expect to feel sluggish, irritable, exhausted, depressed and a number of other undesirable symptoms.
What Are the Consequences of an Imbalance Endocrine System?
An imbalanced endocrine system can lead to other unwanted conditions and symptoms such as infertility, depression, issues with sleep, cognitive disturbance, chronic fatigue and many more. While this system is incredibly complex and remarkable, there is a very delicate balance that is required for optimal function. Many things can tip that balance such as nutrient deficiencies, stress, under or overnutrition, certain foods such as gluten, and other variables.
Our hormones fluctuate over the course of the day, so if there is currently imbalance, it doesn’t mean it has to stay that way forever. Regaining hormonal balance is a very rewarding part of my practice at TRCM because when there is balance, it is felt throughout the whole body.
Which Areas of the Body Are Affected By Hormonal Imbalance?
Body temperature, bowel movement regularity, improved mood, weight management and metabolism are just a few affected areas of the body that fall back into alignment when hormonal balance is achieved. Energy levels increase, brain fog clears up, gastrointestinal issues such as constipation begin to fade away and the lingering feeling of depression lifts.
Why is Hormonal Balance Important?
Hormonal balance is incredibly important and must not be overlooked in both men and women. Together we will figure out the underlying cause of the hormonal imbalance, and work towards correcting it. When this is achieved you will feel lighter, energetic, sharp and upbeat. It isn’t just a matter of your TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) levels, despite this lab being the most commonly evaluated in the conventional world. The endocrine system is much more complex than that, and an imbalance could be what is standing in the way of fertility, weight loss and other health related goals.
