Hormonal issues are always a result of dysfunction elsewhere in the body.
Remember the Titanic?
Remember how it wasn’t the part of the iceberg that was sticking out of the water that brought the great ship down, rather, it was the part of the iceberg that was below the surface?
It was the part that no one could see because no one was looking for it.
Hormonal issues are the same.
We often see the results of having a hormonal imbalance, but unless we address the root cause of the imbalance (look beneath the surface to see how big the iceberg really is), we can’t solve the problem (or save the ship).
Hormonal issues are typically a result of dysfunction in one or more of these areas:blood sugar
- gut health
- micronutrient deficiencies
- brain health
- high levels of toxins
- mental/emotional health
- high stress
- poor sleep or nutrition
- lack of or too much movement
If you’re thinking ‘something is wrong with my hormones’ likely something is happening below the surface.
Here are your hormone health action steps:Take a look at the list above. If there are any areas where you think you could improve, make a plan and take action?
If that means putting down the phone at 7pm so you can get better rest, do that.
If that means drinking more water, eating more veggies, or reducing your processed sugar intake, do that.
If that means seeing a specialist who can do an assessment like the Dutch Test, do that.
Work on addressing the root cause of the issue. Don’t just throw a band-aid (like that oversized, 3pm, can’t make it through the rest of the day cuppa coffee) on it and call it a day.
Your hormonal issues will only be solved if you correct the root cause of the issues.
