Hideous PMS, irregular cycles, heavy bleeding or periods gone AWOL?
These are just some of the common signs that your hormones are out of balance. You may also be experiencing low moods, lack of libido and alcohol or sugar cravings. Left unchecked, hormone imbalances normally always worsen, often leading to sleep disruption, feeling frequently exhausted or overwhelmed and believing your health is spiralling out of control.
Stress – the major disruptor
Especially after having children, the stress of juggling parenting and chores with a full-time job, mean that many women find themselves relying more heavily on caffeine, sugar and alcohol, which, in turn, can lead to creeping weight gain. Soaring stress hormones and stimulants then start to impact blood sugar balance, affect thyroid health and massively disrupt sex hormone balance.
