I am taking an advanced level training course for Health Coaches on hormone imbalance, and it has been fascinating so far. I think the most surprising thing I have learned is that hormones affect way more than reproductive health. Imbalances can cause a variety of really common symptoms, and can also lead to more complex issues if not addressed. Below are just a handful of the types of things you may notice that could be related to your hormones.
Keep in mind, many of these symptoms can be traced to other illnesses and issues, so it is important to talk to a doctor if you have experienced one or more of these issues over a few months to get a proper diagnosis. A health coach (like me!) can help you bring your hormones back into balance with a variety of lifestyle and nutritional changes.
Energy level. An imbalance in hormones can make you feel tired, yet wired. Or, you may feel exhausted all the time. You may have trouble sleeping, either falling asleep or staying asleep.
Mental health and focus. When something is out of balance, you can have a hard time focusing, experience brain fog, anxiety, and in some cases, depression.
Fertility and reproductive issues. Painful and irregular periods, infertility, bloating, fibroids, cysts, decreased fertility, and endometriosis.
Other physical signs. Dizziness, blood pressure changes, acne, hair growth or loss, unstable blood sugar, lowered muscle mass, and dry skin.
Throughout the course, I'll be learning how to better support my clients who are experiencing hormone imbalances through nutrition and lifestyle changes. To put this into practice, I’m developing a program to help women balance their hormones, and would love to have you join me in this journey!
