Natural Hormone Balancing can be simple to achieve with Functional Medicine tools

Natural Hormone Balancing.

When you are thinking “balanced hormones”, you are thinking someone calm, happy and emotionally balanced. We associate unbalanced hormones with moody, mean or grumpy ladies. It shouldn’t really be this way if there are safe helpful ways and natural fixes for hormones. 


Natural hormone balancing is important; we all know it. And you want to make sure the process to balance those hormones safe, too.


Balanced hormones depend on many factors:

  1. healthful diet; full of great oils, greens, fermented foods and lots of lean protein.
  2. life where your stress is managed.
  3. meaningful relationships.
  4. good endocrine function, and others.


Proper hormone balance can help you feel more energetic, sleep well, reduce anxiety, improve memory, curb cravings and lose weight.  Proper hormone balancing can improve your quality of life through improved energy and focus.


If you find yourself relying on coffee, sugar or other stimulants to get through the day, then you may be experiencing adrenal dysfunction.  This feeling is often accompanied by morning fatigue, craving salty or fatty foods, anxiety, difficulty falling or staying asleep, muscle aches, or increased irritability.


Adrenal dysfunction is something you may have been feeling for a long time, but did not know it.  We all have stress from time to time and our body copes with it.  Actually, it’s our adrenal glands that help us deal with the stress.


Stress triggers the release of hormones that increase production of cortisol, among other hormones, to help the body deal with the stress.  When you add a poor diet, lack of exercise and sleep, and long work hours to an already stressed out system, your body goes into a state of chronic stress.  This produces a higher than normal level of cortisol.  After a while of being in this stressed state, your hormone levels start to plummet. 


Adrenal exhaustion compromises the body’s ability to compensate for acute stress, leaving a person feeling lethargic, fatigued, and susceptible to chronic illness.   Adrenal hormone production is an indicator of overall body function, and an imbalance in this system is a sign of chronic illness. That is why it’s so crucial to address adrenal hormone balancing first.


Cortisol levels are also affected by diet, and they shift in response to what you eat.   If you eat too much sugar or too many carbohydrates, excess insulin and then excess cortisol are released, leading to increased fat storage and obesity. High cortisol levels also has been linked to low thyroid function and lowered metabolic rate. Hormone testing would be an extremely important and possibly the best first investment in your health.


It’s very important to have your adrenal hormone levels tested.  For example, cortisol levels should naturally be highest in the morning hours and taper gently through the day.  It is difficult to know what your cortisol levels are with symptoms alone.  Therefore, it is important to test to determine your levels. 


Salivary testing is the only way to accurately measure the pattern of cortisol release throughout the day.  Because the endocrine system is complex, issues arise rarely from just one hormone.  If there is a disruption in the balance of hormone produced by one gland, it can cause an imbalance in other hormones as well.  The adrenal saliva test is an excellent starting point in evaluating hormone function.  This panel tests both reproductive (sex) and adrenal hormones. 


Natural female hormone balancing is directly related to adrenal health and both issues should be looked into. We address these issues with natural Functional medicine approach.
