What Causes Hormonal Imbalance?
The lifestyle we lead is often the prime factor that influences the hormone levels in the systems of the body and can throw things out of whack. Think back to the last time you went in for something natural, be it cosmetics, products, medicinal products etc. These days, the majority of the products that are a part of our lives have additives, chemicals, and other substances that mimic the hormones in the body. When these xeno toxins enter into the body through the respiratory system, the skin or the digestive tract, these bind to the receptors that are present in the body and this throws the hormonal balance out of whack.
A leaky gut fuels the condition, by enabling the toxins to enter into the bloodstream and cause infection in the systems. Stress worsens the condition as the adrenal glands release cortisol in response to the stress, and when the condition persists, it leads to adrenal fatigue. On top of this, heavy metals such as lead in everyday products, batteries etc. cause their harmful effects. All the above are reasons for a hormonal imbalance.
