There are many hormones in your body as a woman that you need to work on balancing properly. These range from estrogen and progesterone, to testosterone, and your thyroid hormones. Simple daily tasks can help improve your health overall and balance your hormone levels at the same time.
Signs of a Hormonal Imbalance Problem
Before looking at the different ways to balance your hormone levels, it helps to first find out if this is something you are struggling with. All women should make sure their hormones are balanced properly, but if you show signs of problems, you really need to focus on it a little more than the average woman. Some signs of hormonal imbalances include having an irregular period, trouble conceiving, insomnia, and a change in your libido. You might lose or gain weight without changing your diet, experience severe fatigue, and have mental health changes like anxiety or depression. Hair loss and changes in your appetite may also occur.
Try Adaptogen Herbs
These types of herbs are healing herbs that provide even more benefits than standard herbs. They are wonderful at helping to balance your hormones as well, so if you are looking to improve your hormone levels with herbs, those classified as adaptogens are the first ones you should turn to. These include many you might recognize, like holy basil, ashwagandha, and certain types of medicinal mushrooms. Not only can they help with your hormone levels, but they are great at lowering your cholesterol, improving thyroid function, and helping with anxiety and depression.
