Eating for balanced hormones and life-long wellness
For many women their hormones play a huge part in their lives. With many noticing their fluctuations in mood, energy, food cravings, ability to sleep, libido, weight and many more.
In this document I’ll be discussing an overview on hormones and how lifestyle factors such as stress, bowel habits and nutrition can affect them and vice versa. I’ll discuss and present current research into things that really work to give you better hormonal balance.
Imbalances can occur when there is too much or too little of any particular hormone within the bloodstream. Your hormones affect everything and in return everything affects your hormones.
Hormones regulate every biological process, such as muscle growth, heart rate and menstrual cycle. Dependent on how well balanced your hormones are will have an impact on how well your body is able to do these functions and many more.
