We hear a lot about hormone imbalances in health articles and from experts in the field. Some people suffer from estrogen dominance, where there is too much estrogen being produced in the body or absorbed from foods and body care products. Other people produce too much cortisol, which is a byproduct of the constant stress we have to deal with in our daily lives. Still others have too little progesterone or testosterone. Shilajit is one of the most powerful adaptogen help the body to rebalance itself, triggering a sort of clean-up of hormonal messes.
Hormonal imbalances can cause many health complications
from weight gain or difficulty losing weight, to low energy levels and mood disorders, and even reproductive complications like impotence and infertility. Various cancers are dependent on excessive hormones like estrogen for their growth, so it’s important to be mindful of influences that can create hormonal disruptions, as well as ways to bring hormones back into balance.
Stress is a major factor in hormone disruption
Any strategies you can use to reduce stress will help. Meditation is a great way to start reducing your overall stress levels, as is exercise, and even calming activities like coloring.
We also need to be aware of all the things that increase our levels of estrogen, and this is a big problem for women. Environmental toxins, impurities in water, and even ingredients in body care products like shampoos and deodorants can dramatically increase the estrogen in our bodies. Aim for naturally derived products as much as possible, avoiding synthetic (man-made) substances when you can. Organic food and fresh air can help reduce the risk, as well.
Hormonal Balance Shilajit
To help correct the imbalances that have been caused by a lifetime of exposure to disruptive substances and situations, supplementation with adaptogens will help immensely. Adaptogens are herbs and other substances that help the body to rebalance itself, triggering a sort of clean-up of hormonal messes. Shilajit is one of the most powerful of these adaptogens, and can be used daily without risk.
How do you know if you have hormonal imbalances that Shilajit can help with?
There are a few big signs that you can spot. If you have excess weight you haven’t been able to lose, especially around the middle, this is often caused by a hormonal imbalance. Issues like PMS, or painful monthly cramping, are hormonally triggered. If you find you often have foggy thinking or just a low amount of energy throughout the day, hormones can usually be pointed to as the cause. Try adding Shilajit each morning for at least 30 days, and you’ll soon start to see improvements in these issues.
