PMS Anxiety and Hormonal conditions
Our hormones are powerful and even slight deviations from normal can cause huge impacts on our bodies.
Hormones are chemical messengers that use our blood system as a vehicle. While we think most often of reproductive hormones, there are hormones that govern sleepiness, appetite, stress, our inflammatory response and metabolism.
When our hormones are out of balance, this can prompt:
- Pain and painful periods
- Anxiety (and PMS-A, which is anxiety with your cycle)
- Brain fog
- Low energy
- Heavy periods
- Poor sleep quality
- Body Temp
- Weight gain
- Appetite change
- Bloating and poor digestion
- Constipation and/ or diarrhea
Our hormones often have interconnected relationships, affecting far reaching systems.
So, when treating PCOS, endometriosis, hypothyroid, hyperthyroid, irregular menses and menopausal transitions we look far beyond the hormonal system itself to support proper reharmonization.
This is why a full health workup that looks at your diet, stress levels, nutritional deficiencies, metabolism processes, waste elimination, sleep patterns and physical activities is done in order to put together a comprehensive health plan.
