The endocrine glands secrete hormones which are vital to several metabolic functions. When they’re out of whack, you will feel negative effects physically and emotionally. You may begin to notice symptoms such as fatigue, mood swings, irregular periods, digestive issues, and more. The good news is there are steps you can take to balance your hormones and get your health back on track.
Balance your blood sugar
Refined sugar may cause spikes in blood sugar and insulin. But complex carbohydrates, fiber, protein and healthy fats help in lowering the glycemic load and removing the burden to your hormones. To find delicious recipes that will help you curb the sugar habit, click here.
Stress depletes your serotonin and dopamine levels – the two neurotransmitters responsible for mood enhancement. Daily stress relieving techniques may be the most important thing you can do for your hormones.
Improve your digestive health
What Hippocrates knew thousands of years ago – that “all disease begins in the gut” – remains true today. Food insensitivity, virus, excessive alcohol intake, and yeast are just some of the culprits. These may lead to malabsorption of food and vitamin deficiencies. At Alkaline Wellness, we can help you discover which vitamins are deficient and create a customized protocol based on your needs.
Find a good quality supplement to balance your hormones naturally. Make sure it contains vitamin C, E, calcium, magnesium, and B complex. You can also take omega-3 and probiotics. We also recommend walking around the block to get the exercise you need and the sunshine vitamins your body craves.
Get your thyroid checked
Thyroid problems are left undiagnosed because the symptoms may also resemble those of other conditions. An under or overactive thyroid is not just a part of aging and you don’t have to live with it. We have helped a lot of patients in restoring healthy thyroid function.
