Our hormones ensure that the body is functioning properly.

Once they go whacky, many things go wrong.  We already told you the signs to watch out for to know if you have a hormonal imbalance. If you already have the signs, the next thing should be normalizing them. This can be through medication but you can also use natural means.

You can try going natural first and visit the doctor later if nothing changes. Read on to know how you can balance your hormones naturally:

1. Manage your stress

This is easier said than done but it’s doable. Stress is one reason why hormones go whacky and once you learn to manage them, the hormones will normalize.

2. Eat proteins

Proteins trigger the release of hormones that affect appetite. Eating proteins every day thus helps in the regulation of hunger hormones.

3. Regular exercise

Exercise is good for your overall health but if you are trying to balance your hormones, you should make it a routine. For instance, exercise is known to lower insulin levels and increase its sensitivity.

4. Healthy Fats

Lean fats are the building blocks of hormones. Eat more avocados, fish, seeds, and nuts.

5. Go slow on processed sugar

You should have started doing this a long time ago. But if you haven’t it’s never too late to opt for natural sugar. High intakes of sugar are linked to high levels of insulin in the body which causes diabetes.

6. Sleep

Always sleep enough each day. A good diet and exercise without proper sleep equal bad health. Poor sleep has been linked to hormonal imbalance.
