Balancing Hormones Naturally
Hormones, such as estrogen, testosterone, adrenaline and insulin are created in the endocrine glands and work as chemical messengers throughout your body to accomplish a wide range of important physical and chemical functions, from turning on and off hunger cues to running your reproduction systems, and even triggering emotional states including balancing your mood.
Understanding the major hormones and what they do will help you take control of your health.
Synthetic hormone replacement therapies such as birth control pills or the HRT prescribed for perimenopausal/menopoausal issues are frequently prescribed in conventional care. Unfortunately, using these therapies can trigger a wide range of negative, long-lasting side effects that patients aren’t always aware of.
- Taking prescription drugs oftentimes just masks the symptoms but does nothing to remedy the root cause of the imbalance — which can be poor diet or nutritional deficiencies, gut issues, toxic environmental factors, or genetic tendencies.
- Using prescriptions to mask symptoms is dangerous as it allows the disorder to progress without the patient knowing — and in many cases can create imbalances in other areas of the body.
- Many medications also have serious side effects — such as stroke, osteoporosis, anxiety, reproductive problems, cancer and more.
Balancing hormones naturally is not only effective but also can have additional benefits such as increased energy, weight loss, improved sleep, and healthier skin. That’s why at Symptoms to Solutions treating the root cause of your imbalances involves a personalized plan that also provides you with the tools to lead a healthier, more vibrant life.
