Hormones are part of the endocrine system, which is the system that produces, stores, and releases hormones in our bodies. Endocrine glands release these hormones and are located throughout our bodies.
Some of the major endocrine glands you may recognize include the pituitary gland, the thyroid, the adrenal glands, and the gonads (ovaries and testes).
While it’s natural for hormones to increase and decrease throughout our lives due to events like puberty, sustained high or low levels can be detrimental.
These hormonal imbalances can impact sleep, mood, and other central body and mind functions. But how can you be sure you’re experiencing a hormonal imbalance?
Identifying Hormonal Imbalances
There are a few common signs that may signal a hormonal imbalance. Although you may see or feel some of these symptoms due to environmental or physical changes, if they persist for weeks or months, it’s something to notice.
The first step on your wellness journey is to take notice of your body and recognize when things just don’t feel right.
Some of the common signs of hormonal imbalance include:
- Unexpected weight loss or gain
- Poor sleep or insomnia
- Sudden increase in acne
- Low libido
- Extreme mood swings
- Hair loss or unexpected growth (unrelated to conditions like pregnancy)
If you experience some of these symptoms for a prolonged period, it may be time to investigate your hormone levels. While some physicians may be able to do some hormonal testing, one of the best ways to get a good measure of your hormonal levels is through a bioenergetic analysis.
These scans are usually provided by a company specializing in bioenergetic analysis and therapy. The company will likely need a sample of your hair and saliva to perform the testing and will provide comprehensive results regarding your current hormone levels compared to ideal levels.
Balancing Your Hormonal Levels
Once you have data on your hormonal levels, the next step is identifying ways to balance your levels that are too high or low.
Each person will have different needs depending on their imbalances, but you will likely need to make nutritional and lifestyle adjustments to address your hormonal needs.
Beyond these adjustments, some people may benefit from homeopathic remedies specially crafted to address specific imbalances.
Some common lifestyle adjustments include:
Reducing alcohol to aid in liver repair
Avoiding certain foods or adding certain nutrients
Restricting use of certain chemicals in cooking and cleaning
Adjusting sleep environments or habits
Adding exercise or other movements to daily activities
Practicing mindfulness and meditation
All of these habits impact how your mind and body respond to each other with hormones. By making some of these adjustments, you can help regulate those hormonal messages and improve your overall health.
Simple lifestyle changes can make a difference, but some individuals can benefit from homeopathic remedies such as maca, ginseng, and primrose oil. After receiving your bioenergetic analysis results, the practitioner should be able to suggest supplements for your needs. Generally, supplements include pills, oils, or teas taken in specific doses to regulate your hormonal imbalances.
Integrating Holistic Health into Your Life
Stress, caffeine, hidden nutritional intolerances, and other seemingly minor factors actually have a much more significant impact on your mind and body than you may think. Your habits and diet can exacerbate hormonal imbalances, leaving you feeling anxious, tired, or just not yourself. Holistic health solutions like bioenergetic analysis and homeopathic remedies may have a sustained, positive impact on your wellness.
If you’re noticing signs of hormonal imbalance, talk to your doctor or get in touch with a dedicated holistic health practitioner to get the information you need.
