Stress and Hormones

Do you lack energy?

Do you have trouble sleeping?

Have you lost your libido?

Do you struggle to focus your mind, have difficulty completing tasks, and feel like you’;re in a “brain fog?”

Have you been told it’;s just part of getting older, it’;s probably ‘;all in your head,’; or the only thing you can do is take yet another prescription?

Most of us think of stress in just one way – emotional stress. But in reality, there are other types of stress that your body must contend with – chemical stress and physical stress.

The term “detox” sounds trendy, but it’;s really not. Your body works hard to detox itself every single day. For example, your liver is a filter. It detoxifies your body, protecting you from chemicals you ingest, environment toxins, and even natural byproducts of metabolism (like excess estrogen). If your natural detoxification system is impaired – and many people find themselves in this position after years of exposure to toxins, drugs, or poor eating habits – your body will struggle to break down these harmful agents.

Constant stress, whether emotional, physical or chemical, wrecks havoc on your body’;s detoxification and hormonal system. As a result, people experience anxiety, depression, digestive problems, blood sugar imbalances, headaches, heart disease, sleep problems, and memory issues. They also often experience weight gain in distinctive patterns, as illustrated below (from left to right, you’;ll see examples of ‘;estrogen body type,’; ‘;cortisol body type,’; ‘;thyroid body type,’; and liver issues).

At the Holistic Wellness Center, we excel at helping people naturally manage their hormonal imbalances through physician-grade supplementation, proper testing, and lifestyle coaching. It’;s extremely important that you understand the best diet for your body and know your food sensitivities.

“For the past 5 years or so, I have been dealing with acne, cold hands and feet, painful menstrual periods, severe anemia, endometriosis, having a hard time remembering things, sugar cravings and hair loss… Since working with the Holistic Wellness Center, my acne has cleared up, my energy levels are back up, I am not cold all the time anymore, my menstrual cycles have improved a lot, and I no longer crave sugar and carbs. I lost a total of 20 pounds!”
