Balanced hormones

Balanced hormones makes life better

I am not a doctor, I am a biomechanics specialist and aromatherapist. I often choose to use alternative medicine when I see fit. I believe in traditional medicine and grateful for all that it is. I have studied over 700 hours of aromatherapy and have created my own line of Organic based skin and home care products called TRUTH. I believe in the mind body connection and that the body works as a whole.
Maintaining hormone balance is a lifelong process.
Hormone functions have tremendous impact on other areas of health. Natural alternatives including lifestyle modification, consistent use of Organic ONLY essential oils, and nutritional supplementation, can help manage symptoms associated with hormone dysfunction or abnormalities.
Exercise, meditation, and a healthy diet is a good start to balancing your hormones or keeping them balanced. Hormone balance could help with maintaining healthy weight, improved metabolism, reduced stress, healthy immune response, and improved energy.

Hormonal balance is one of the most important aspects of a properly functioning body. Hormones, such as estrogen and insulin, are chemical messengers that affect many aspects of your health as they travel in your bloodstream throughout your entire body. Some of the most common side effects of hormone imbalance include:
Weight gain
Low libido
Hair loss and hair thinning

Cortisol, the “stress hormone” is produced by the adrenal glands and regulates your body’s response to stress. It works on a schedule — good sleep, starting at 10 pm, maximizes adrenal hormone function.

Out of balance cortisol levels can lead to:
feeling exhausted upon waking even after a long night’s sleep
high energy late in the evening or waking up at 2 or 3 in the morning
an inability to calmly deal with stress
food cravings
brain fog

Your adrenal glands are responsible for how you cope with stress. The key to adrenal balance is to allow yourself more restorative relaxation time and sleep. Improve the quality of your sleep with lavender aromatherapy for example, meditation, and exercise.

Both men and women can be low in progesterone, and low progesterone levels have been linked with infertility and depression as well as other imbalanced hormones within the body.
Hormones, stress and thyroid function are all directly linked.
Out of balance thyroid function symptoms include:
Uncontrollable weight gain or loss
Dry hair and skin
Cold or heat fluctuations

While menstruation and menopause are natural processes, some of the side effects are not. The ovaries produce the hormones estrogen and progesterone, which when imbalanced, lead to several symptoms including:
difficult or irregular menstrual cycles
lowered libido
difficult menopausal symptoms like sweats and hot flashes

Keeping your liver healthy is key. The liver regulates the sex hormones, primarily estrogen. A liver detox is a good idea.

Synthetic treatments, such as hormone replacement therapy, can make you dependent on prescription drugs, mask symptoms while developing diseases in other parts of the body and often causing serious side effects.

Aromatherapy for anxiety is very popular because our sense of smell triggers powerful emotional responses. We process so much information through our sense of smell, in an area of the brain adjacent to the limbic region.

When the scent of an essential oil is inhaled, molecules enter the nasal cavities and stimulate a firing of mental response in the limbic system of the brain. These stimulants regulate stress or calming responses, such as heart rate, breathing patterns, production of hormones and blood pressure. Aromatherapy can be by used in a bath, direct inhalations, diffuser blends , in skin care, home cleaning supplies, perfume and cologne. I make all of this TRUTH for your individual needs.

I hope everyone is feeling wonderful, if so keep up to the great work. If you have any of these symptoms consult a doctor, make sure your workout plan is right for you , and or give me a call to help you with your aromatherapy choices to make you feel and look amazing.
