In simple terms, hormones are chemical messengers that travel throughout the body coordinating complex processes like growth, metabolism, and fertility.
With over 50 different types of hormones in the human body, trying to control them is no easy feat.
Affecting our bodies from an early age, the signs are visible, and it is important to note that hormones affect men and women differently.
It is definitely not a ‘one solution solves all’ problem.
Hormones don’t like to be disturbed, and considering that our bodies are governed by them, you may just want to take care and make a few adjustments to both your lifestyle and your diet, explains Skin Online Blog.
But how? Well, Health Renewal offers Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy, a treatment tailored to each individual patient to effectively improve the signs and symptoms of Menopause and male Andropause and increase quality of life.
But if you haven’t got to that stage of your life, you might be interested in how to control your hormones to the best of your ability:
Sleep plays a huge role in helping your body to cope on a daily basis. Hormones also fall into this sphere, and therefore if you aren’t getting enough sleep, your hormones will definitely suffer and even become imbalanced.
In a perfect world, we would be getting sufficient vitamins, nutrients, fresh air and sunshine on a daily basis, but this is not the case.
It is, therefore, best to always consult a health care practitioner for the best advice on supplements that your body may be deficient in.
Hormones are oil soluble, so it’s of the utmost importance to include healthy fatty acids in your diet or through supplementation.
Here are few supplements we personally consider to be vital:
– Omega- 3 Fatty Acids or Krill Oil
– Vitamin D3
– A potent nutraceutical Multi-Vitamin
Fix Your Leptin
If your Leptin levels are out of balance, it may affect all other hormones in the body. It is also possible to become Leptin Resistant through certain health conditions, such as adrenal fatigue.
The good news is there are medical weight loss programs which can assist in this regard. Balancing your Leptin will make weight loss easier, improve sleep, and lower inflammation in the body.
So few women have ever had a hormonal screening or profiling done. Sometimes a simple imbalance in oestrogen can result in hot flashes, weight packing on around your tummy and even fertility problems.
An abundance of testosterone can result in abnormal hair growth, menstrual problems, or an even a deepening of the voice.
If you’re a little sceptical, then make an appointment with the professionals at Health Renewal, who will calm all your nerves and answer all your concerns.
After all, you never know what unbalanced hormones might be driving you to do.
