Arlington Hormone Optimization
As we age, it’s easy to write off symptoms like:
- Hot-flashes/excessive sweating
- Brain fog
- Weight gain
- Mood swings
- Decline in intimate desire and function
We tend to write these symptoms off as “part of the aging process”, or worse, we seek medical help only to be told “there’s nothing wrong”. While these symptoms can be a part of the aging process, oftentimes, they are the result of a hormone imbalance. Luckily, Hormone optimization exists and we can help!
How to Correct Hormone Imbalance
Your hormones play a big role in your overall health. If you have a hormone imbalance, it can wreak havoc on your body. The good news is, there are ways to improve your hormone health, including our favorite secret weapon! If you have been searching for “Hormone Optimization Near Me”, continue to read on for helpful information.
Here are 5 things to do to improve your hormone health and reverse an imbalance. Many are concerned about the hormone optimization costs but most these are free solutions you can try at home!
1. Proper Diet
Eating a healthy meals that are rich in vitamins, minerals and nutrients, is the very first thing you should do to start a hormone optimization diet. Eliminate sugar and processed foods as much as possible. Then, be sure you’re getting a good blend of fruits, vegetables, lean protein and healthy fats.
Getting adequate exercise will help minimize stress, regulate cortisol levels and control your weight. Stress, anxiety, depression and obesity are 4 of the main causes of hormone imbalance in both women and men.
3. Eliminate Toxins
Toxins are all around us. From perfume, to laundry detergent, to cleaning products, many products that are a part of our everyday lives contain harmful synthetic fragrances and chemicals that act as hormone disruptors. These hormone disruptors are called xenoestrogens, and they are everywhere, from the plastic packaging of our foods, food preservatives, and red dye- just to name a few. Additionally, some medications and abused drugs can contribute to the problem. If you’re looking to reverse a hormone imbalance, it is recommended that you start swapping some of these products for more natural and/or clean alternatives.
4. Prioritize Sleep
Your body needs sleep to function properly, recover from the day and eliminate toxins. If you are getting less than 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night and suspect you have a hormone imbalance, it’s time to prioritize sleep and make it a goal to get at least 7 or more hours of sleep each night.
5. Get a Hormone Replacement Therapy Consultation
The first 4 things on this list are things you can do on your own immediately to improve your hormone health. If you try these things and are still not feeling your best, or you feel that your problem is more than you can handle on your own, schedule a free consultation with a hormone specialist, and let us share our secret weapon with you!
