Your body has various hormones operating in delicate harmony to control your mental, physical, and social health. But did you know that even tiny imbalances in your hormone levels can wreak havoc in your body? It can happen immediately, or these slight imbalances can fly under the radar for long periods of time, gradually chipping away at your sense of well-being and overall health.
The symptoms of hormonal imbalance are easy to ignore or misattribute. Today, we're going to take a look at a number of the key signs that you may be out of balance. If you find yourself checking a few of the items on this list, no need to worry. There are ways to help bring your body back into balance so that you can be your best self. Common signs of hormonal imbalance in women include:
- Breast tenderness
- Brittle hair
- Brittle or weak bones
- Changes in appetite
- Changes in blood sugar levels
- Changes in heart rate
- Cold/heat sensitivity
- Decrease in libido
- Deepening voice in females
- Difficulty sleeping
- Dry skin
- Skin rashes
- Thinning hair
- Weight gain/loss
Women naturally experience hormonal imbalance during their development, such as during puberty, menstruation, pregnancy, childbirth, breastfeeding, and menopause. However, if you're consistently experiencing one or more of these symptoms on a prolonged basis, you're likely dealing with hormonal imbalance.
How to Restore Your Balance
Many people suffering from hormonal imbalance struggle through their symptoms when there may be much easier solutions available.
Taking some basic steps to improve your body's health can help get you back on track and give your endocrine system, responsible for producing hormones and regulating their levels in the body, the chance to get back in balance. Sometimes a more targeted hormone treatment is necessary, but give these natural methods a try.
Taking a little time each day to center yourself and clear your mind can work wonders on your stress levels. You may also benefit from centering exercises like yoga.
What you eat can have a significant impact on your well-being, especially concerning hormone levels. Significantly reducing or completely removing processed sugars and processed foods from your diet will help tremendously.
You can also introduce hormone-friendly foods like avocados, wild-caught salmon, coconut oil (pure MCT oil), raspberries, eggs, peas, lentils, green tea, nuts, and seeds. It is also highly beneficial to increase your water intake to at least 64 ounces a day and limit or eliminate your intake of coffee and alcohol.

Consistent, moderate activity can help get you back on track. Exercise lowers stress, kick starts your metabolism and can combat fatigue. If the thought of a workout is daunting, start small by just taking a walk every day.
If you aren't getting enough good quality sleep, your hormone levels will suffer. (This can be a hard one for new moms!) Do your best to find a routine that helps you get to sleep and wake up on a consistent schedule. Experiment to find out how much sleep makes you feel the best. It might be more or less than the standard 8 hours.
Sometimes your body needs a little help to bring itself back in balance. A detox can be the kickstart your body needs to get started.
Liver detox, in particular, is important for endocrine health because the liver is your body's primary detoxifier. In addition, it processes the body's hormones, regulating the levels of some and directing them to do their jobs in your body.
