Hormone balancing is not a new concept; the idea dates back hundreds of years where primitive doctors would speculate people’s ‘humors’ were out of balance and it was causing distress in the patient’s life. However, where the pseudoscience ends, legitimate nutritional education begins. With a change in diet, or even natural supplements and a consultation with a trained professional, you too can enjoy a happier life in sunny St. Petersburg.
Imbalance Can Wreck Your Daily Routine
Anyone with depression can tell you it’s not a fun time — it hurts. When all your body’s chemicals are in harmony, you live a lot healthier and happier. It is when these come out of balance that you should look into hormone balancing to get back on track. Body chemicals like testosterone or estrogen being out of sync can cause:
- Low sex drive
- Weight gain/loss
- Low energy
So, if you just feel like lying on the sofa, or do not have the stamina to go out dancing in St. Petersburg like you used to, it’s not your fault! It’s more than likely an imbalance in your system that’s wrecking your plans, so it is advisable you consult with a doctor or nutritional professional as soon as possible.
Diet Can Affect Hormone Balancing
If you live in St. Petersburg, you are probably familiar with all the delicious foods and treats available year-round. Unfortunately, that grease ball funnel cake and IPA microbrew comes with a hidden price tag: chaos in your body. Now, while processed foods can wreck your personal temple, nutritionally dense, wholesome foods can keep your system in harmony, such as:
- Soy (a natural source of phytoestrogens)
- Avocado (rich in ‘good’ fats your body needs to run)
- Flaxseed (helps with menopause and is a high source of fiber)
- Fatty fish (salmon, mackerel, herring, lake trout)
- Fortified cereals (Methylated B vitamin has been shown to combat depression and anxiety)
Hormone balancing doesn’t have to be a chore; by adjusting your intake, you can still have your cake and eat it too.
Nutrition and Wellness Programs Can Point the Way
With the holidays approaching in St. Petersburg, the average American is looking to spend money, for sure, but not necessarily on their vitality. This holiday season, give yourself the gift of peace of mind and visit a dietician or health consultant. If you have the blues, bloating, or just a general sense of malaise, something is wrong, you likely have a hormone balancing issue. Or, if you’re looking towards the future and want to make sure that your New Year’s resolution to lose twenty pounds comes true, a nutritionist can set you on a path to success rather than another year of giving up around March.
