Reversing hormonal imbalances naturally is possible. You can avoid bright lights in the evening. Try to keep your lighting dim. This will allow your cycles to regulate. Bright lighting and blue lights shut off the melatonin production which is necessary for a peaceful and restful sleep at night. You can, however, use a low blue nightlight which you can place throughout your home. If you get up in the night to go to the bathroom you don’t run the risk of interrupting your melatonin by turning on a light.
This is so interesting because I remember as a child seeing my mother place low blue nightlight throughout our home and it wasn’t until I became much older that I understood why.
Please pay attention to your stress level this is so important. Are you familiar cortisol? Cortisol is released by the adrenal glands. Our bodies produce cortisol naturally along with other stress hormones, these hormones enable us to stay energized and react to a situation that can harm us, it is an internal warning mechanism
Imagine you’re out camping in the forest with a friend and all of a sudden, you look back and realize you’re being chased by a speeding bear? you would get an instant adrenal rush to remove yourself from the situation and run like hell. When you are in danger, all your reserves are diverted to survival mode. Cortisol has priority over everything.
Our ‘fight or flight’ response would kick in – the brain would send a message to the adrenals to release adrenaline (the big initial rush), and cortisol (to keep us on high alert).
Even though it might not be an actual bear that’s stressing you out we do have everyday stress such, marriage, kids (no matter the age), workplace issues, finance, and so on. It is sometimes very challenging to rid yourself of everyday stress it can be very unrelenting.
So you see when running from the bear we would use all that sugar that is mobilized for energy to run from your source of stress. But everyday stress isn’t being used up (unless you go do a workout after work every day) – so it gets stored as FAT – usually around the middle area where it can be easily accessed.
If you are stressing due to everyday occurrences and you are finding it hard to cope, just remind yourself, reversing hormonal imbalances naturally and there are solutions if you take the time to invest in yourself. Remember cortisol is a natural hormone in the body that will go into overdrive if the body becomes too stressed, whether we like it or not. Cortisol is there to protect us.
Our bodies come with all the necessary equipment needed in order to keep us alive and healthy.
