Six Reasons to Make Hormone Health Your “New Normal”
It’s been a challenging last couple of months to say the least.
Social distancing, face masks, online schooling and working from home…just to name a few of the changes.
Now everyone’s talking about getting back to normal again. The thing is, we know things will be different than they were before anyone heard of COVID-19 or the coronavirus. It’s going to be a “new normal”.
Experts call times like this “paradigm shifts”. It means a lot of things we used to take for granted have changed…and we may need to change, too.
The good news? Times like these can give you the push you need to make positive changes in your life. And there’s one change that can provide you with huge mental and physical benefits.
Make your hormone health part of your “new normal”.
No matter your age, proper hormone balance is critical to your health and well-being. It can make the difference between just getting through each day versus embracing your best life.
As people age, the endocrine system produces smaller amounts of key hormones such as estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, DHEA, thyroid and growth hormone. The negative effects of this decline can show up as early as in your 30’s. Some medical conditions, surgeries, stress, injuries, and medications can cause hormone imbalances to occur at even younger ages.
Restoration of proper hormone levels has numerous benefits, including:
- More energy
Feel like you’re dragging through each day? Low hormone levels could be the culprit.
Declines in key hormones can also prevent you from getting the restful sleep you need to be alert and active during the day.
- Improved mental function
“Brain fog”, forgetfulness, irritability and moodiness can all result from hormone imbalances.
Restoring proper levels of hormones such as estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, DHEA, pregnenalone, thyroid and growth hormone can give you back your mental quickness, memory and good mood.
- Stronger immune system
Lately, you’ve probably become more aware of the importance of a healthy immune system to protect you from viruses and other threats to your health.
Estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, DHEA, thyroid and growth hormone all play an important role in boosting the performance of your immune system. At the same time, excessive cortisol production can cause degraded immune system response.
- Easier weight loss
Those extra pounds you’ve gained while “self-isolating” may in part be the result of hormone imbalance.
- Better muscle and bone health
Reduced muscle mass and bone density can cause serious health issues later in life. Maintaining healthy hormone levels helps to prevent long-term muscle and bone loss.
- Improved sex drive
If self-isolating at home hasn’t become an opportunity for more “quality time” with your significant other…hormones might be the cause. They can also be the solution.
Low testosterone levels can cause reduced libido in both men and women. At the same time, elevated estrogen can be an intimacy killer for men.
Hormones that are out of balance can lower your metabolism and make it harder to maintain a healthy weight.
