The basics of hormonal imbalance
When we think of hormones, we often only think of the common sex hormones estrogen and testosterone. The truth is, there are many more hormones involved in the endocrine (hormone) system. In fact, most people don’t know that the liver, pancreas and adrenals all play a pivotal role in hormonal health. At the NHCAA we look at the entire body to make sure all organs and glands are balanced and functioning properly.
What causes hormonal imbalance?
There are a number of ways hormones can get out of balance. The most common cause is the consumption of excessive carbohydrates. This increase digestive hormones which then throws off all the other hormones to a certain degree. The second biggest factor is toxicity of chemicals and metals. These toxins sit on our cells and block the hormones from working. Let’s not forget about stress. Stress upsets the fragile hormone system.
When should I see a Nutrition Response testing Practitioner?
Hormonal imbalance symptoms include hot flashes, fatigue, PMS, menopause, low libido, night sweats and acne. The main digestive hormone symptom is weight gain. Once a symptom appears, it is a good time to see a Nutrition Response Testing practitioner. Of course starting a nutrition program before symptoms appear is ideal so you don’t have to suffer.
