Hormones are a very crucial component of the human body. They are the chemical messengers that travel via the bloodstream to every organ and tissue in the body, and regulate various processes, like growth, metabolism, and reproduction.
The major sex hormones, estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone, along with the sleep hormone melatonin, stress hormone cortisol, adrenaline, and thyroid, have a significant effect on your physical and mental health. Your hormones being in sync and balance is a vital factor in enjoying good health.

While you can take medications as prescribed by your medical practitioner, there are also many natural remedies you can use to help restore your hormonal balance.
Here are few of those natural remedies you can implement today to see a positive effect on your health.
Omega 3 Fatty Acids
As they are responsible for the production of hormones, they are beneficial to rectify the hormonal imbalance. These fatty acids create healthy and responsive cell membranes, which causes a better adherence of the hormones to the cell, and also makes sure that cellular receptor sites are working in optimal condition. Apart from getting it directly from foods like chia seeds, fish oil, soybeans, and squash, you can also opt for supplements.
There are foods that play a vital role in balancing the hormones in both the genders, which should be made an essential part of your diet. Carrots contain fiber that helps detox excess estrogen from the body. Estrogen dominance in the body is a component that causes hormonal imbalances. The fiber also prevents estrogen from being reabsorbed in the body. Avocados contain high quantities of fiber, potassium, magnesium, vitamins, and folic acid, all essential for maintaining your hormonal levels. Apart from that, there are also other foods like fenugreek, egg yolks, oils containing less omega 6 and more omega 3, that play a crucial role in hormonal balance.
Physical activity affects hormone production, hence, it is important to keep your body healthy and fit. When you exercise, the levels of stress causing hormones cortisol are decreased. As the hormonal imbalance often leads to mood swings, being physically active is essential. You can opt for a combination of exercises along with some relaxation techniques to reduce stress and keep your hormones in check.
As a holistic approach, chiropractic treatment stimulates proper communication between the brain and glands of the body, thus, promoting proper regulation of hormones.
