Get Hormone Healthy with Balanced Hormones
Hormones are chemical messengers produced in the glands of the endocrine system and then sent out to tell each part of your body what to do, when to do it, and how long to do it for. You probably know that your body has hormones, but you may not realize that hormones affect your health and well-being.
The goal when it comes to hormones is balance. When hormones get out of balance, they can lead to problems including diabetes, infertility, weak bones and weight gain or loss among other things.
- Limit caffeine: While caffeine is great for keeping you energized, too much can negatively affect the endocrine system, especially when in conjunction with other hormone stressors. Skip out on the coffee and opt for tea instead.
- Eat coconut oil: Coconut oil is great for hormones, as it aids in hormone production and can help you lose weight. Try blending it into tea and get your daily dose all at once.
- Get Enough Sleep: If you’re not getting enough sleep (and most adults aren’t), it’s going to be difficult for you to keep your hormones in balance. Apart from a healthy balance of hormones, getting proper amounts of sleep has been linked to longer life and less chance of disease.
If after implementing these tips, you still notice something is off with your body and hormones, visit your doctor. They will be able to tell you which hormones are unbalanced and work with you to get them back into balance. Common symptoms of hormone unbalance include fatigue, endometriosis, weight gain and skin issues, so if you’re having any of these issues, it’s worth getting a check-up. A balanced life is a happy life, and balanced hormones are healthy hormones so get in balance and get your body feeling its best.
