9 Ways to Balance Your Hormones Naturally

Our busy lifestyles and poor eating habits usually cause hormonal imbalances. Hormones are the chemical messengers that profoundly affect a person’s physical, mental, and emotional health. They play a significant role in controlling appetite, mood, and weight fluctuations.

Hormone imbalances can cause physical symptoms such as weight gain, PMS, uterine fibroids, urinary tract infections, anxiety, skin problems, fatigue, hair loss, osteoporosis, altered sex drive, allergies, etc. Thus, it is important to balance your hormones.

One can maintain a healthy weight and good physical health by keeping one’s hormones in balance.

Here are 9 ways how those who work in nursing jobs San Diego maintain their hormone levels and stay fit:
 

Manage stress levels

High-stress levels can lead to hormonal swings. Rest is essential for everyone, especially those with a busy lifestyle. Try to incorporate relaxing activities throughout the day that help you remain calm and stress-free.

Eat healthy fats

Healthy fats help in curbing insulin resistance and suppressing appetite. Healthy fats can be found in foods like avocado, nuts, fatty fish, olive oil, coconut oil, etc.

Avoid caffeine

The stimulants found in caffeine can cause the adrenal gland to become overactive and produce excessive hormones. To balance your hormones naturally, reduce caffeine intake, and coffee can be switched out for herbal tea.

Exercise regularly

At least 30 minutes of exercise is recommended to keep hormone levels in check and the body active. If you don’t like exercising, find ways to stay active. You could go on a walk or a hike, swim, join a Zumba dance class, practice yoga, and so on.

Eat protein with every meal

Consuming adequate amounts of protein with every meal is extremely important. Protein nourishes the body with amino acids and produces protein-derived hormones or peptide hormones. Peptide hormones play a crucial role in balancing the body’s chemical mechanism, including controlling appetite and food intake.

Go out in the sun

The body needs a healthy dose of Vitamin D to stabilize hormones and chemical reactions. Try to go out every day and take a walk around your neighborhood. However, make sure you don’t expose yourself to too much heat.

Get 8 hours of sleep every night

Sleep is essential for the body to recover from any hormone imbalances it has suffered throughout the day. Try to get 8 hours of sleep every night.

Take vitamin/mineral supplements

Taking vitamin and mineral supplements helps in balancing the body’s hormones naturally. Recommended vitamin/mineral supplements include Vitamin E, fish oil supplements, B complex vitamins, calcium, and Vitamin C.

Reduce sugar intake

Reducing sugar intake is crucial for optimizing hormone function and naturally balancing hormones in the body.
