How to Know if You Might Have a Hormone Imbalance
Hormonal changes are a natural part of aging, but just because hormonal imbalances are natural does not mean they are something you simply must tolerate. Natural hormone replacement therapy can address many symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Knowing what symptoms to look for is the first place to start if you are curious to see if natural hormone therapy is right for you. Some of the most typical symptoms that provide clues to a hormonal imbalance include:
Unexpected weight gain. Sure, pounds do creep on as we age, but often, hormonal changes are at the root of excess weight. This is especially true for women whose diet and exercise habits have not changed. Often, insulin resistance is a culprit when the scale refuses to budge. Often when the fat settles in the waist and belly area, it can indicate excess cortisol is resulting in stubborn fat storage.
Diminished sex drive. A decrease in desire and poor quality sleep is a sign that the sex hormone supplies are low and in need of replenishment. Couple that with brain fog and fatigue that does not go away and it is likely that hormonal imbalance is the cause.
Feeling edgy and anxious. Unexplained anxiousness and depression are also clear signs of an imbalance in your body that can be addressed successfully with natural hormone replacement.
Hot flashes and food cravings. During perimenopause, women may experience hot flashes and night sweats, along with food cravings that lead to binge eating. These symptoms are commonly hormone-related.
