Our hormones are a vital part of the regulatory system in our bodies. These chemicals travel through the bloodstream and transmit the messages that balance our body’s overall health and wellness. Hormones tell the organs how to function properly and are key factors in managing your heart rate, metabolism, sleeping habits, growth, brain development, mood, and sexual function. When our hormones are balanced, our bodily systems work like clockwork, but even a slight change in the amount of hormone chemicals in your bloodstream is enough to cause a chemical imbalance that presents in side effects all over your body.
Hormones are produced by the endocrine system, a network of glands including the pituitary gland, thyroid, pancreas, ovaries, and testes. These glands produce, store and regulate the amount of hormones in your bloodstream. There are several factors that could cause these glands to malfunction and produce too many or too few hormones into the bloodstream causing an imbalance, but it’s important to remember that hormonal imbalances can occur during natural changes in your body. Stress, overactive glands, poor diet, medication, changes in sleeping habits and environmental influences can also lead to an imbalance in your bloodstream. Everyone is at risk for the effects of a hormonal imbalance, and the condition is often ignored or misdiagnosed.
The list of the side effects of a chemical imbalance is long because of the wide network of glands that contribute to the regulation of your body function. Signs of a chemical imbalance include: Headaches , changes in thirst and appetite, excessive weight gain or weight loss, anxiety, depression, changes in urination, excessive sweating, changes in blood pressure, extreme fatigue, changes in sex drive, thinning hair and bloating.
