Your hormones run on food, not on pills, tablets, capsules and definitely cannot run on anything you inject. Sure, I can inject myself with synthetic iron and then take a blood test that shows I have plenty of iron, but only because blood tests do not know the difference between real iron and fake iron. That’s why blood tests are a dangerous measure for what your body actually needs.
Humans have yet to understand nature itself, so how can we program a computer to know the difference between synthetic and organic? We cannot! But it’s much easier to just tell a program to look for the synthetic version of the real nutrient and measure that instead. Of course no one will ever tell you that’s actually how blood tests work, because if you knew that every blood test that checks for nutrient levels in your blood, only shows you what it reads artificially, you would find it absurd to take more of their artificial vitamins.
So How Do I Know If I Have A Hormonal Imbalance Without A Blood Test?
Simple, ask yourself how you feel. Most women with hormonal imbalances have no idea that many of their symptoms, if not all, are linked directly to their hormones — especially symptoms like these:
- Irregular or absent periods: Increasing irregularities in your period signal a disruption in the hormonal activity that controls menstruation. More often the cause is an imbalance between estrogen and progesterone due to the strong effects of the stress hormone, cortisol.
- Weight gain: Changes to your weight or body shape are caused by shifting hormones, particularly during menopause, that tell your body to store fat in the abdomen. This can occur even if you’ve never had a weight problem before.
- Irritability and/or moodiness: Feeling out of control or overwhelmed can be caused by sudden changes in the balance of estrogen, testosterone and progesterone or from adrenal stress imbalances.
- Skin issues: Adult acne is associated with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), a hormonal condition that also causes irregular or absent menstrual periods due to ovulation irregularities.
- Hair loss/unusual hair growth: Imbalances in thyroid function or between estrogen and testosterone can cause thinning hair, and high levels of testosterone (such as in PCOS) can lead to unusual hair growth, including on the face.
- Infertility: Women with PCOS often have high amounts of androgens (including testosterone) as well as insulin resistance. Both contribute to increased estrogen, along with lack of ovulation and infertility.
- Fatigue/loss of energy: Fatigue can occur even when you get plenty of sleep, leaving you feeling physically and emotionally drained. Thyroid imbalances and chronic stress are also caused by hormonal imbalances.
Women with these and similar symptoms may not even consider hormonal imbalance as a cause. Hormonal imbalance symptoms have a wide range that includes more common symptoms like weight gain and fatigue, but also lesser known problems like hair loss, skin issues and heart palpitations.
You can only live with your hormonal imbalance symptoms for so long before the problem begins to jeopardize your health and well being. When you know how to reverse your hormonal imbalances naturally and without drugs, you can restore perfect hormonal balance. And when your body’s hormones are balanced, your symptoms will consistently decrease and you will enjoy much better health, and that’s what makes life worth living.
