You might have noticed that your body’s functioning has been feeling a bit off lately. You may be experience fatigue, foggy thoughts, acne, depression or other bodily changes that reflect similar symptoms to PMS or menopause. If these symptoms sound familiar, you may be experiencing hormonal imbalance.
Hormone imbalance happens when stress or toxins interrupt your body’s natural process of functioning and is often is a result of aging. Other symptoms you may experience due to hormonal imbalance are: hot flashes, sleep problems, low libido, irregular periods, weight gain, stomach problems, mood swings, and headaches.
Hormonal imbalance can impact a person’s life significantly. Daily activities may become limited due to changes to your physical and emotional states. If you experience stomach problems, normal daily activities like exercise can become problematic. An inability to focus or think clearly can impact your performance at work and going through the day. Sleep patterns can be disrupted and fatigue throughout the day is difficult to deal with. Weight fluctuations and acne can change a woman’s healthy body image and negatively impact her self-confidence. Additionally, low libido can impact intimacy with a woman’s partner.
