Get Your Hormones Back on Track
Feel like your young self again!
If your hormones feel out of whack, it may be time to look upstream to discover the missing link.
In today’s podcast, Dr. Sara Gottfried, a board-certified OBGYN and physician/scientist shares her holistic three-step protocol for resetting your hormones.
High amounts of stress can disrupt the system that controls your hormones and lead to hormonal imbalances that leave you feeling more tired, depressed, and tense.
This system is called the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal-thyroid-gonadal (HPATG) axis and cortisol is the main player. This is your body’s “fight-or-flight” hormone and it signals nearly every cell in your body into either action or inaction. A wayward HPATG is often the main reason for hormonal imbalance and learning to lower cortisol levels is the first step towards fixing it.
Cortisol is a “wear and tear” hormone, and it’s the main stress hormone that’s in charge of of your gut, immunity, blood sugar, and blood pressure.
The best approach to rebalancing your cortisol involves making personalized lifestyle adjustments that are tailored to you… discovering what causes stress in your life from sun up to sun down, and learning how to make adjustments accordingly.
