Balance Hormones With Natural Boosters | Windor Physical Medicine
Hormones play a vital role in our health, wellbeing and our longevity. No process in the body isn’t affected by hormones in one way or another and there are more than 72 known hormones! These variables may be the reason why a tissue, organ or system functions properly and where there is a measurable imbalance, problems can arise.
Many people have recently heard of Low T. Testosterone is a critical hormone for both men and women, but it’s only one of many! Testosterone plays a vital role in muscle formation, endurance, sex drive, mood, energy, tissue recovery and growth, and when it’s in balance, people feel better, look better, grow stronger and feel younger.
However, if this is the only test that is being done, there is a serious disservice taking place! Balance between free Testosterone and bound testosterone must be considered, the test should correlate to deficiency measured over time. Ideally, comparing measured blood amounts with measured saliva values and comparing over time must be taken into consideration before Testosterone can and should be given.
Additionally, people who wish to improve their testosterone levels should consider all of the naturals methods of hormone balancing and these conservative, patient measures should always be considered before jumping immediately to medication, which in some cases cannot (and should not) be stopped once it is started. If you feel that your doctor is pushing you to hormone prescriptions, or if you are pushing your doctor to prescribe testosterone or other hormones, please step back! Taking a patient approach to balancing hormones isn’t just recommended, it could save your life!
Unfortunately, hormone therapy in both men and women in the past has shown that the hormone balance is critical and anytime hormone medications are used, they must be as close to bio-identical as possible. In other words, they need to match the deficiencies and not give more or less than your body needs. Quantity and quality matter with the medication, and you must report any side effects you experience to the doctor, nurse practitioner or physician’s assistant immediately.
That being said, there are natural ways to boost and improve your hormone balance, including nutritional changes, improvements in body composition and body fat loss. Sleep and relaxation habits play a critical role; sometimes minimal change can have a significant impact on night time hormones necessary for sleep. Improvements in an understanding of exercise, followed by necessary recovery can improve your hormone levels. Exercise needs to be hormone focused if the results desired will be achieved, and doing the wrong exercise in the wrong order can lessen the beneficial hormone changes and certain types of exercise need to be considered when performing exercises to change hormones.
Nutrition plays a critical part in hormone production, consumption of certain spices like cardamom, turmeric, ginger and other spices can improve natural hormone creation and balance. Eating cruciferous vegetables like cauliflower and Brussel sprouts can improve how our body processes our hormones and these veggies should be consumed frequently and in plentiful quantities for the best results.
Meditation and yoga (especially on the Power Plate!) can improve the production of “feel-good” hormones such as dopamine, serotonin and active meditators have better brain-waves, better body control, better sleep, and are more financially successful than non-meditators! Learning to breathe and improving postural habits can play an important role in the production of certain hormones and recent evidence shows that improving posture for as little as two minutes a day can boost testosterone, confidence and make you more assertive and independent!
