Certain life events, such as pregnancy and aging, throw our hormones off balance. At Pearl MD Rejuvenation, we’d like to educate women on the importance of hormone health to your physical and mental wellness so that you can live your best possible life.
How Hormone Health Affects Your Wellness
Your hormonal system is simultaneously complex and fragile. If you have too much of one hormone or too little of another, you can experience many negative effects. These include rapid weight gain, an increase in visceral fat, depression and anxiety. Here are a few reasons hormone health is important to your wellness:
When it comes to hormone health, many people don’t think of its correlation to mental health. However, imbalanced hormones can wreak havoc on your mental health. Adequate levels of certain hormones are linked to improved learning and memory, certain muscular functions, digestive health and mood regulation. If there isn’t enough hormones in your system, you can experience weight gain, insomnia, extreme carbohydrate cravings, migraines and depression.
A Sharp Mind
Testosterone is typically thought of as a “male hormone,” but it is just as important for women. Testosterone, by nature, is an anabolic steroid which helps your body grow muscles and maintain muscle mass. This is particularly important as we age and begin to lose muscle mass rapidly. Testosterone also plays a crucial role in reducing your risk of osteoporosis, heart disease, low libido, Alzheimer’s disease, dangerous visceral fat around essential organs and depression.
Excess levels of certain hormones lead to storing fat in your midsection, increasing your risk of heart disease and stroke. On the other hand, if you aren’t producing enough hormones, you are at a higher risk of developing health conditions.
