What are hormones?
Simply put, hormones are our bodies’ messengers. They travel through the endocrine system to virtually every part of the body to tell it when and how to function. Our bodies’ organs and tissues rely on hormones to give them direction, which make them a very vital part of our overall health and wellness as well as a key factor in our daily functioning.
What do hormones affect?
Hormones travel through our endocrine system and influence virtually every part of our bodies. They carry messages that tell our other systems what to do, how to do it, and when to do it. This can affect the way you eat, sleep, and perform throughout the day. Because hormones play such a large role in our overall health, an imbalance has the tendency to impact quality of life.
Signs of hormonal imbalance
- Trouble sleeping/feeling tired throughout the day
- Irritability/mood changes
- Decreased libido
- Weight gain
- Increased chance of Depression/Anxiety
