You & Your Hormones: The Causes of Women’s Fatigue

27 Aug, 2016

Fatigue

Worn out and weary, women across the country named fatigue among their top five health concerns of 2015. But did you know unbalanced hormones have a HUGE effect on how much energy you feel? The most common sign of hormonal imbalance is poor energy. 

  • Low thyroid hormone levels have you feeling utterly exhausted
  • High cortisol hormone is present when under high stress, and this reduces thyroid function leading to low energy
  • Long term stress leads to cortisol deficiency leading to poor energy
  • Low thyroid function causes estrogen imbalances leading to poor energy
  • High stress leads to low progesterone, which leaves you moody and tired

If tiredness is coupled with mood swings, insomnia, depression and/or anxiety, it gives us even more grounds to suspect your hormones are not as they sure be, as these symptoms are all signs of an unbalanced hormonal system.

Do you feel:
·      Tired upon waking?
·      Notice significant fluctuations in your energy?
·      Struggle to get through the day?
·      Feel short tempered at the end of the day?
·      Feel overwhelmed?

Being exhausted all the time does not have to be the new norm. When your energy is high you are able to get so much more enjoyment out of life. You feel vital, motivated, and inspired to achieve your goals. Better energy also enhances your connections with your loved ones.  Good energy is an essential factor of health and we want everyone at their best, contributing to this world all their passion, and experiencing the best that life has to offer.

So how do you get from here to there?
