The Key to Balanced Hormones Is A Healthy Gut

Article Reviewed By The Medical Faculty and Advisory Review Board

Your hormones are a complex group of specific elements with specific (and differing) needs and functions.

For true balance and good health, your hormones must be in order—they affect EVERYTHING about you – Your mood, your appetite, your metabolism, etc.

However, when discussing hormones and assessing health concerns its essential to consider your gut health. Sometimes the key to balancing hormones is to start in the gut.

Why the Gut Matters

Typically, hormonal imbalance is a red flag something else is not working in your body.

Something caused your hormones to get out of whack, and that’s what EvexiPEL providers are great at finding—the root cause of your hormonal issues.

The gut and hormones are in constant communication, they support each other’s functions, and the microbiome (intestinal bacteria and their genes) plays many roles in the proper function of our bodies.

The gut microbiome leads our hormones. It produces hormones and communicates to other glands throughout our body how much or how little of each hormone it should be creating and releasing.

Shining a Spotlight on Gut Health

Many researchers are calling the gut the most important organ of the endocrine system; the system which is responsible for our hormones.

Even with a title as big as “the most important organ,” gut health is often overlooked and leads to long-term health problems.

When discussing how to tackle hormonal imbalance, putting gut health first should be a priority.

Gut Health Signs

If you’re not sure if you’re dealing with poor gut health, here are some telltale signs:

  • Gas, bloating, and abdominal discomfort on most days
  • Brain fog, slow processing speed, and decreased cognitive function
  • Food sensitivities, especially to gluten or dairy
  • Fatigue and low energy on most days
  • Diagnosis of an autoimmune condition, like psoriasis
  • Use of antibiotics in the last six months
  • Stomach bugs or history of traveler’s diarrhea
  • Chronic stress
  • Recurring heartburn or reflux
  • Intolerance to carbohydrates, especially fiber and beans

Can you identify with at least three of the above symptoms? Your microbiome may be in trouble, which we know can also affect your hormones.

The first step to take is to build a restorative gut health plan.

Restore Gut Health

It’s always best to consult a practitioner to get a better idea of your specific needs, problem areas, and deficiencies, but some general practices can improve gut health.

We recommend a medically advised detox program to start, but if you want to tackle gut health before you can make an appointment here are some good habits to adopt.

1. Cut Alcohol

Chronic alcohol consumption can damage your microbiome. Reducing your intake or cutting alcohol from your diet completely is a great first step.

2. Eat Your Veggies

Eating more vegetables can promote healthy microbiome thanks to fiber!

3. Get Adequate Sleep

Getting 7-8 hours of quality sleep is important for healthy bodily functions.

We Can Help

These three tips barely scratch the surface of all the necessary steps and habits to implement for a healthy gut.
