Endocrine System

The endocrine system, which regulates our hormones, is responsible for much more than we might perceive. Though the endocrine system inherently strive to retain a state called “homeostasis” (balance within the body systems), an endocrine imbalance can cause insomnia, weight gain, headaches, depression, anxiety, brain fog, profound fatigue, digestive distress, aches and pains, and other symptoms. If you are feeling any of these symptoms and can’t seem to find an outside cause (i.e. stress), you might consider hormonal testing.

Vitamin and Mineral Deficiencies

Two of the most common deficiencies in women are Vitamin B and Magnesium, two important factors in blood and heart health, among other benefits

Vitamin B is important for a healthy nervous system, as well as keeping your blood healthy by promoting new red blood cell growth, and lack of it can cause anemia. Vitamin B12 cannot be produce by the body, so you must eat the right foods, and consider taking a good supplement.

Research show that the majority of woman are deficient in Magnesium. This mineral, which may have anti-imflammatroy properties, has been shown to improve PMS symtoms, as well as insomnia symptoms particularly when used at night. Though supplements are helpful, it is always advised to try to get your magnesium in the food you eat.
