Hormone imbalance FAQs at Susannah Makram clinics — do hormones cause acne? Adult acne and hormone balance are part of the adult skincare naturopathic screening.
Typically, acne or excessively oily skin and changes in hair distribution: the first signs people relate to a hormone imbalance. Here are several other warning signs.
Hormonal imbalance in men and women refers to either a deficit or an excess in levels of certain hormones in the body. The hormone reset diet reflects the need in modern times for us to address this. It’s a guide. Types of hormonal imbalances include progesterone deficiency, oestrogen dominance, testosterone deficiency, excessive oestrogen and thyroxine deficiency or hypothyroidism. DHEA, cortisol, aldosterone and Melatonin. Other hormones secreted by glands can be overproduced or underproduced. These hormones lead to hormone imbalance symptoms.
Hormonal imbalance symptoms
We have all heard of hormone imbalance symptoms like:
1. Weight gain
Chronic insomnia is one of the most debilitating symptoms of perimenopause for a lot of women. In addition to an imbalance of the sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone during perimenopause, a lot of women suffer with high levels of another hormone. High levels of the stress hormone cortisol can contribute significantly to chronic insomnia. Chronic Insomnia is one of the hormone imbalance symptoms that is overlooked typically before clients arrive at Susannah Makram Clinics.
Released by the adrenal glands during the “fight or flight” response, cortisol, is a powerful chemical. Cortisol, along with adrenaline, is highly effective in preserving and protecting the body during times of stress.
High levels of cortisol interfere with restorative REM sleep and interrupt sleep rhythms. This is why so many women in perimenopause report that they are able to fall asleep, but they cannot stay asleep.
High cortisol levels can also cause racing, panicky thoughts, heart palpitations, and even panic attacks. Even if you are suffering from exhaustion and burnout, with high levels of cortisol in your body, you will not be able to sleep. Women often describe this feeling as “tired but wired.”
3. Hot flashes, night sweats, hormonal migraines, PMS, high blood pressure, dizziness, excessive facial hair, are all hormone imbalance symptoms.
Restoring adrenal function is a pre-requisite for hormonal balance. The adrenals are involved in manufacturing numerous hormones. The adrenal gland makes hormones involved in the following:
Blood sugar regulation
The regulation of the body’s minerals
Producing and maintaining the body’s energy levels in conjunction with the thyroid
Producing stress-monitoring hormone
Most hormonal imbalance symptoms are experienced because of underlying health issues. [tweetthis]Most hormonal imbalance symptoms are experienced because of underlying #health issues.[/tweetthis]
