4 Signs That You’re Suffering From Hormonal Imbalances

What are four signs that you’re suffering from hormonal imbalances? 

Hormonal imbalances include sex hormone imbalances, adrenal imbalances, thyroid hormone imbalances, as well as pancreatic hormone and pituitary hormone imbalances. Your whole endocrine system helps keep you optimally well. It’s where hormones work together and when any one of those hormones are out of balance or any one of those glands are not functioning optimally, your hormones will be out of balance. 

The first sign of hormonal imbalance is fatigue

You do not have enough energy to do your daily activities. You wake up tired or get tired in the middle of the afternoon. Also, you may find that you’re fine if you keep moving but once you sit down, you tend to fall asleep. Fatigue means your mitochondria is not functioning at the proper level. Your T3 levels are too low or it’s not getting into the cells and your adrenals can be low functioning.

Low growth hormone levels and high prolactin levels also affect fatigue. And when your sex steroids are low you feel fatigue since estrogen stimulates insulin receptors. Insulin resistance will contribute to fatigue because you need enough insulin to escort glucose into the cells to produce energy by your mitochondria. 

#2 Weight gain

Uncontrolled weight gain can be a sign of hormonal imbalance. You’re gaining weight or are unable to lose weight in spite of eating pristinely and exercising enough to expend more calories than you’re consuming and you still can’t lose body fat. Uncontrollable weight gain is a classic sign of hypothalamic dysfunction. Insulin resistance, low thyroid hormone production, high cortisol,and low DHEA plus out of balance sex steroids contribute to weight issues. 

#3 Insomnia

If you can’t fall asleep or stay asleep, you probably have a hormonal imbalance. Falling asleep requires that you have enough GABA production to relax which means you make enough progesterone and you’re not producing too much cortisol in the middle of the night and you produce enough melatonin. Not being able to stay asleep means you’re not sustaining adequate melatonin to keep you in a deep sleep.

Your pineal gland isn’t functioning normally and your hypothalamus is not directing your circadian rhythm. If your sex steroids are low, low estrogen in women, low testosterone in men, you’ll wake up in the middle of the night usually between 2 and 4 am and not be able to get back to sleep. 

#4 Hair issues

Changes in your hair both on your head or your body can indicate hormonal imbalances. If you’re a woman, you may have hair developing on your chin, your upper lip, your chest, around your areolas or your pubic hair is spreading and going up towards your belly button. Those are all male pattern hair changes. That means you have a hormonal imbalance with high testosterone and possibly high DHEA. Which could be a sign of polycystic ovary syndrome.

If you are losing hair in the male pattern, which is at the crown and also at the temples, that means you have too much dihydrotestosterone. As well as not enough estradiol for both men and women. You may have too little estradiol and too little thyroid hormone if your hair is thinning. If you’re losing hair in patches, you may make too much cortisol.

    Hello, this is my 3rd morning taking Genesis Gold. The last 2 days/nights I have become very gassy and my insomnia has gotten worse. I had these 2 issues to begin with and this is what I was hoping for an improvement with. What could be happening? Should I stop taking this so I can sleep again?

      Gas with Genesis Gold can indicate you may have intestinal dysbiosis. Bacterial overgrowth (usually foul gas and bloating after eating) versus Candida overgrowth (gas and bloating with carb cravings). Here is a protocol for bacterial overgrowth https://shop.genesisgold.com/…/dmar-natural-sibo-therapy and here is a protocol for the candida overgrowth https://shop.genesisgold.com/…/dmar-natural-candida…

      When healing your hypothalamus, sometimes your symptoms get worse before they get better.

      Some customers need to heal their gut before continuing Genesis Gold. In the meantime, you can continue to heal your hypothalamus with Sacred Seven alone.
