Does anxiety overwhelm you at the very thought of being in a social gathering? Do you hide your depression from your loved ones? Do you push yourself just to get through daily tasks? How we feel affects our relationships, in a huge way.
These feelings can be unsettling for many women going through menopause. Maybe your friends and family say you are not the person you use to be. You admit you don’t enjoy the things that use to bring you pleasure. Life just seems to be hum drum. More often than not, these are symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Let’s take a look.
Excess Progesterone in your system, can cause fatigue, low libido, weight gain, moodiness and feelings of vertigo.
When testosterone is too high that can leave you feeling agitated and angry, to the point that intimate relationships are out of the question even with the high levels of testosterone.
When your estrogen levels are low, you may experience bouts of depression, insomnia, low libido and of course hot flashes and night sweats.
Take into count that in addition to low or high levels of any one of these hormones, one or more may have extreme fluctuations. Fluctuations explain why you have good days and bad days. Mostly bad days considering you have to make up for them on the good days you do have!
So how are you to know if your lack for zest of life is a direct result of your hormone levels being high, low or all over the place? There is a very simple and accurate saliva test I offer to many of my clients, which, when analyzed by the lab, produces a clear picture of what’s going on inside you. If a problem is identified, I then work with my clients on an individual basis to balance their hormones, not with drugs, but naturally.
