Hormonas saudáveis = mente e corpo equilibrados

Healthy hormones = balanced mind and body

Overall female well-being is intrinsically linked to hormonal health. It's a fact.

Hormones are a kind of chemical messengers that play a key role in many of our bodily functions. When they are out of balance, they influence much of our physical, mental and emotional well-being.

A woman who has a natural cycle, that is, who does not take any hormonal contraceptive, should pay attention to the details of her menstrual cycle (see blog article The phases of the menstrual cycle), mainly in the premenstrual phase - where any and all symptoms can accentuate and worsen (see blog article TPM).

Menstruation itself brings us a lot of information about our hormonal status, from its duration (3-7 days), quantity (30-50ml), color (red/dark), (not) smell and texture (it should be a little viscous and fluid).

Normalizing pain, intense premenstrual emotional symptoms, irregular menstruation, is normalizing hormonal imbalances that can have serious health consequences, including increased risk of chronic diseases such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, osteoporosis and even certain types of cancer. Factors such as genetic inheritance, medical conditions, stress and aging may be behind some hormonal imbalances, such as: thyroid dysfunction, estrogen dominance, insulin resistance, cortisol imbalance and low testosterone, among others.

These imbalances can manifest themselves through a wide range of symptoms including: mood swings, weight gain, fatigue, menstrual irregularities, acne, hair loss, decreased libido and more.

Pay attention to what your body tells you. Believe that he manifests himself, exactly as he intends you to hear him, if you pay attention to yourself!

Prevents some hormonal imbalances through healthier lifestyle choices.

Three of our main influencers are:

1. Food! Eat as healthy as possible, nutrition is key - consult a professional in the field, not everything that is good for some people is best for you;

2. Movement! Between just walking or doing cross-fit, the limit depends on what you like or what you are allowed to do;

3. Sleep! Sleep replenishes our energy and vitality, helping to balance our entire body and mind - if you are experiencing any difficulty sleeping, try meditative techniques, read before bed, listen to relaxing music, drink calming herbal tea (passion flower , valerian, St. John's wort, chamomile, linden, melissa and lavender).

Consulting a qualified healthcare professional, such as an endocrinologist or hormone specialist, can help identify underlying causes of hormone imbalances through comprehensive assessments, laboratory tests, personalized treatment plans.
