Symptoms of hormonal imbalance in women
Are you experiencing painful periods, bloating, constipation, fatigue, difficulty losing weight, PMS, or hormonal imbalance?
I’m here to tell you that these symptoms are absolutely not something you need to live with as a woman. These are all manifestations of feminine imbalance.
Sister, your hormones are constantly changing day to day. They also change when you are highly stressed, change your diet, are not sleeping well, breastfeeding, pregnant, going through menopause & many other lifestyle factors.
Hormones are like messenger doves in your body. They move around the bloodstream to inform the organs & tissues what they need to do. Let your hormones go out of whack & it impacts a LOT. Your hormones affect your digestion, metabolism, gut microbiome, appetite, heart rate, sleep, fertility, brain function, body temperature, stress levels, mood & so much more!
If you experience any of the below you might have a female hormonal imbalance:
- weight gain & difficulties losing weight
- sweaty skin & hot flushes
- low sex drive
- hair loss
- painful, irregular & heavy periods
- absence of period
- acne or skin sensitivities
- constipation & IBS
- dry skin
- brittle nails
- flabby skin
- painful inflamed body
- bloating or abdominal pain
- hyper-pigmentation on the skin
- depression & anxiety
- Weak muscles
- vagina dryness or itching
- PCOS, fibroids, ovarian cysts or endometriosis
Phew… that’s right, maybe that’s why nothing is working?
So how to treat hormonal imbalance?
For women, having balanced hormones requires consuming supportive foods & exercise programs according to the different phases of YOUR female menstrual cycle & UNIQUE body.
With your hormones changing day to day there is no woman out there exactly like YOU. So no matter who you speak to, or what you read the only way to truly balance your hormones is to start listening to your sacred & wise body.
The different phases of your cycle impact digestion, skin, sexual desire, immunity, brain function & much more! This is why at some phases you might have skin breakouts, feel more bloated, hold extra weight, be more in touch with your intuition, or feel more stressed.
How do you expect men to understand you if you don’t even understand yourself?
I say this with love…
Did you know that you have a unique monthly cycle men do not have? And did you know that at each of the 4 phases, you have different needs emotionally, physically & spiritually?
Male & female hormones work VERY DIFFERENTLY.
Most studies research only men. This has left most women approaching their health like men & have lost touch with their monthly cycle.
I know finding this out was the missing link in my healing journey!
Men & women really do come from different planets but it’s not Venus & Mars.
Men & women’s internal rhythms align by different celestial bodies. Men are more in line with the sun. This daily cycle, also known as the Circadian Rhythm, follows the cycle of the sun.
While women share the cycle of the sun too, they have a unique additional cycle that men don’t share. Women also have an Infradian Rhythm, a monthly cycle connected to the moon.
So unlike men, you cannot eat & exercise the same way everyday. Ignoring your infradian rhythm can throw your hormones WAY out of balance.
…& how lucky for men that they get to date four different women in a month?! Each man is lucky to share in the magic of a woman in constant evolution.
Sync in with your cycle to treat hormonal imbalance & nourish your body from the inside out.
Hormones play a massive role in your mental & physical health as they can affect your metabolism, weight, libido & how you handle your emotions.
Seeing how your hormonal changes are aligning with your emotional & physical state allows you to achieve a deeper self-understanding. This is one of the most natural ways to treat hormonal imbalance in women.
To make this process as smooth & simple as possible, your easiest option is to track your cycle.
Track your Cycle for a Greater Understanding of your Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms
On my journey of hormonal imbalances, I struggled to find simple guides that did more than just explain the basics to me. My own need for an easy to use guide that also gave deeper support led me to create my own hormonal guide that explains what is happening at each phase of the cycle.
My hormonal chart supports reconnecting with your body, learning how to balance your hormones through a plant-based diet, & delves deeper into other techniques you can adopt as a cyclic woman.
Since creating this for myself I have had far deeper awareness of my cycles as a woman & was able to identify that I had estrogen dominance & not enough progesterone. I started to track ovulation more closely & live my life more in sync with my body’s needs. Now I rarely even need the guide as I just know what my body is trying to communicate with me.
In this guide, you will focus on the four different phases of your cycle & learn how to nourish your body, physically & mentally during each phase.
