The hormones have key functions in your body, and if one of them ‘gets out of line’ the others will get, too, causing in this way hormone imbalance. You might ask yourself what things cause this imbalance. Well, there are many factors, but the good news is that you can fix this situation in short time.
These imbalances affect women mostly, which suffer from mood and behavior changes during the menopause and puberty. But, this situation is mainly caused by their diet. If they choose to drink alcohol or smoke during pregnancy, or even consume gluten and sugar in a daily diet, they can find themselves in this situation.
How to fix the imbalance?
First of all, you must need to figure out what is causing this problem. You may find that your body lacks hormones, you must find a way of replacing them.
But, the main solution to this is to keep the right diet. As mentioned above, the diet is the main cause of this problem, and of course, in order to fix it, you must keep the most appropriate diet. You must eliminate all the bad foods from your diet, mainly sugar. It’s related with increased production of estrogen, insulin and testosterone, causing imbalance in their levels. Another food you must eliminate is dairy. Milk contains lots of natural hormones, which can contribute to their imbalance in your body.
This bad food you remove from your diet must be replaced with another ‘good’ food. Your diet must include organic, unprocessed food and mostly vegetables. In this way, you could minimize the intake of hormones, keeping their levels in balance.
Other natural remedies you can consume to keep your levels balanced are the fish oil, which can help balancing estrogen along with vitamins D and B, antioxidants, such as vitamin E, green tea, selenium etc., and omega-6. These hormone-balancing supplements can help anyone balance their sex hormones.
In addition, you can do some exercises, such as walking, running and even dancing in order to reduce PMS.
Stress can trigger hormonal imbalances, so the only thing you need to do is to reduce it. You must deal with something that can calm you, like yoga and meditation and other forms of mind therapy. Stress can be caused by insomnia, so you must try to sleep better and longer (at least 7 hours a day). In this way, your hormone levels will be best balanced.
