How do hormones get out of balance?
Hormones are incredible chemical messengers in our body that affect our brain, heart, bones, muscles, and reproductive organs and are an essential part of the workings of every cell in the human body. Hormones work best when balanced. However, hormones can become imbalanced.
Hormone imbalances are caused by:
- Higher than average levels of stress
- Poor food choices
- Inadequate sleep
- Taking synthetic hormones
- Sedentary lifestyle (lack of movement or exercise)

How do hormones get restored?
Each individual has a unique balance of hormones. During perimenopause and menopause this unique balance can be disrupted. Getting back into balance and feeling more yourself can be a tough task for many.
We encourage you to read through our Symptoms & Solutions section of our website for additional information on achieving better hormone balance, as there are many things you can do on your own, including: life style choices, reducing stress, and eating more nutritiously.
However, in many cases this just isn’t enough to help you feel better during this transition, and you need the help of a health provider to assist you in navigating this phase. They can help you assess where you are now and key information about family history, to implement the best plan for your unique needs.
We have developed our Health Care Provider Locator Tool to assist you in your journey, should you need more support to feeling your best.
