You’ve likely heard of this hormone if you struggle with falling asleep or staying asleep throughout the night. This soothing hormone kicks in depending on how much light you receive.
Have you noticed you start yawning once the sun sets? Likewise, you become more perky and focused once the lights are on (natural or artificial). Melatonin kicks in once things get dark to encourage you to get plenty of rest.
Insulin is widely known as the hormone that rests in your pancreas, taking the driver’s seat of your metabolism all throughout your life. People who don’t produce enough insulin will receive a diagnosis of diabetes by their doctor.
Another well-known hormone is estrogen, the chemical responsible for the physical development of the reproductive system. Age, chronic stress, and diet all contribute t
o the reduction of estrogen in the body.

While estrogen and testosterone are seen as mutually exclusive, the reality of the matter is quite different! Testosterone is a vital hormone that supports body hair, muscle, and bone mass.
Last but not least, we have cortisol. This hormone gets a bad rap for being related to stress, but keep in mind there’s more to this chemical!
This hormone is classified as a natural steroid and helps you regulate blood pressure, your sleep cycle, and how you burn fat. Of course, too much cortisol is associated with issues such as fatigue and weight loss.

The Four Legs of the Hormone Chair
We like to use simple metaphors to help bridge your understanding between all these complex chemicals. Below are the four legs of the hormone chair we use in our practice.
Total and Free Testosterone or Progesterone
The first leg of your metaphorical chair is your total and free testosterone count. Another hormone you need to consider on your journey is progesterone, a sex hormone similar to testosterone.
Insulin and Your Blood Sugar
While there’s a lot of misunderstanding about insulin and blood sugar, remember there are several other functions. Insulin is also necessary for maintaining proper energy levels and breaking down food properly.
The pituitary gland informs the thyroid gland what is needed to support your immune system or your muscle structure. Just like the legs of a chair, all of your hormones work in careful harmony to maintain balance.
Do you take vitamin B12 supplements or eat a lot of leafy greens? You’re supporting your adrenal glands, the part of your body that supports hormones like adrenaline and cortisol.
Why Should You Improve Your Hormonal Balance?
Every new year brings changes to your body. When your hormones are out of balance, you’ll feel the change in your mental health, physical wellness, and daily mood.
We believe in empowering people to understand their health on a deeper level than gimmicks and platitudes. Improving your hormonal balance starts with understanding each chemical and what it does to your body. Thankfully, nature supplies us with more than enough tools to feel our best!
