Your hormones can be a touchy subject. They can make you moody, cause you to gain weight or send your energy plummeting when there is a hormone imbalance afoot. Since you live in a fast-paced world and may eat a diet filled with questionable nutrients, such factors can have a dramatic effect on your hormone balance. In fact, when it comes to most people, a hormone imbalance is seen in the simple fact that they are overweight. This hormone imbalance is generally caused by the adrenal glands working overtime to cope with all the stress people are under today. When adrenal function is high, the thyroid function inversely moves to the sluggish side of the spectrum. In this state, excessive weight gain is inevitable, unless the body’s hormones are once again returned to a more balanced state. But how do you properly balance your hormones? Our team can help.
Get Your Stress Under Control
Since high stress leads to excessive cortisol production and obesity, it only stands to reason that you will want to take the time to keep your stress levels in check. This will help to normalize your hormone balance over time. Taking advantage of the options we have available can be an important step to bringing your hormones into an acceptable range where they need to be.
When it comes to improving the balance of your hormones, it is critical to make sure your hormone insulin is functioning in a proper capacity. When your insulin levels are normal, insulin will help get sugar and amino acids into cells for energy production and muscle building. Alternatively, when your insulin levels are high, your cells stop responding to the insulin signaling process. This creates a situation known as insulin resistance. This hormone imbalance needs to be normalized, and engaging in exercise is one of the best ways to get insulin to normalize.
Eat More Protein
Protein is critical to hormone production, and it is especially needed in higher quantities when a hormone imbalance is leading to you having an intense hunger response all the time.
