How to Balance Your Hormones: Post 4

Now on to Step 3!

Learning how to balance and support your adrenal glands can be a real game changer when it comes to your hormone issues AND in every other area of your life. Knowing which time period we are all living in, I know spending some time focusing on nourishing our stress-regulating adrenal glands is a skill we ALL need to be reminded of again even if we have tried it before.

Your Stressful Life Can Impact Your Hormone Balance

We can’t escape hearing constantly that “stress is bad” and “stress can cause weight gain.”

It’s cliche to tell you, “We all need to work on stress management.”

This isn’t news.

But I really want to paint the important picture of how our adrenal glands directly relate to hormone-related issues. When we are constantly demanding that our stress hormone, cortisol, be produced to handle our overworked stress-filled lives, our sex hormones take the back seat to being produced and regulated.

Stress and Hormones:

  • Cortisol and sex hormones both use cholesterol as a precursor.
  • With a constant need for cortisol (i.e., feeling stressed out all the time), all of our cholesterol is shunted to making cortisol instead of our sex hormones.
  • Progesterone levels decrease, which leads to estrogen dominance causing PMS, PCOS and endometriosis, mood swings, cramps, low-libido, and more.

Well, darn.

But there’s hope!

Committing to decreasing the cortisol demands on our adrenal glands (i.e., reducing our stress) will lead to sex hormone regulation over time.
