Hormone issues seem to be center stage in today’s world, but most people shrug them off and think of imbalances as simply part of life. I've found that there are a lot of hormones that can disrupt our systems and cause health concerns. Alarmingly, these often go undiagnosed or, even worse, misdiagnosed and treated as something else.
Knowing your body and how it responds to the world around you will help you to recognize shifts in your well-being. Hormones usually play a role in how you feel on a daily basis—with the heaviest hitters being cortisol, adrenaline, insulin, and reproductive hormones like estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone.
Balance is a buzzword that leads us to believe there's a calm in the hormonal storm, but the truth is that we are always in a constant state of flux. Hormones adapt and adjust, but we can help them to stay at a healthy level with simple daily rituals to find a happy balance in body, mind, and soul. It doesn’t take much to throw something off, so aim to nurture yourself and truly know yourself in the process. Focus on your personal nutrition, exercise, and stress habits to establish your individualized baseline and work on resetting the balance.
