“That” time of the month
How to go from crazy to calm!
Do you feel out of balance like you are on an emotional roller coaster? Do you sometimes feel you lose control or are even a little crazy and forgetful?
Your hormones during this time of the month can make you feel, angry, irritable short tempered and give you, period pain, headaches/migraines, bloating, tender breasts, sugar cravings, constipation or sleeplessness.
Often these symptoms can start a few days prior to a period but for some unfortunate women it can start up to two weeks before you’re due.
Your body must be working efficiently to break down the hormones. When the detox pathways are not working properly hormones can build up in your system and cause any of the symptoms above.
The main hormones for women that have a direct impact on the brain, are oestrogen and progesterone. These hormones have to be in balance during the cycle. A common scenario we see is that a woman may have too much oestrogen around period time which can cause her to feel ‘crazy ‘and out of control. This is a result of too little progesterone to balance these feelings. Progesterone is the calming hormone.
Also, the imbalances in a woman’s hormones often have an underlying component of Adrenal fatigue. Adrenal fatigue can leave a person feeling exhausted with limited or no energy to get through the day.
At OHE we can address hormone imbalances, Adrenal fatigue and do blood and/or saliva testing if necessary.
