If your moods fluctuate and it doesn’t take much to make you anxious. Situations that you used to look forward to and handle with ease, such as entertaining friends and family, can suddenly leave you feeling overwhelmed and irritable.
Hormone imbalances cause many women to overreact to things that never used to faze them. Beyond the physical changes you’re going through at this time, you may also be dealing with an empty nest, aging parents, break-ups, grief issues, or just generally taking stock of your life.
If your anxiety and mood swings are strong enough to interfere with your daily life, You may be clinically depressed or have other health issues that your holistic healer/counselor/ coach can help you with. While a hormone imbalance may be part of the problem, it may not be the whole picture.
The release of biochemical and hormones in our body manages the overall functioning of our system: physically, emotionally, and mentally as told by doctors.
Why do these biochemical and hormones get an imbalance in your body?
As per the holistic approach for overall well-being, there needs to be harmony in the working of the physical, emotional, and mental aspects of life.
