Increased Energy With Hormone Therapy

Feeling tired, drained, or exhausted on a daily basis? This might have something to do with your hormone levels. As we start to get older our hormones can begin to become unbalanced.

When this happens, we start to experience feelings of sluggishness and fatigue and even loss of sleep. This reduced energy can play a very large role in your overall health and well-being. It’s so important to understand how your hormones could be directly affecting your energy levels.

Understanding Your Thyroid Levels

Your thyroid gland plays a large role in your overall energy levels because it produces the hormone thyroxin that helps with your metabolism. Depending on the type of imbalance you have with your thyroid you can experience a variety of different symptoms. It’s important to get your thyroid levels checked if you’re experiencing any of the following symptoms because you might be experiencing a hormonal imbalance.

If your body isn’t making enough thyroxin then you can start to feel tired, depressed, and even start to have memory problems. This is called an underactive thyroid, or hypothyroidism. Conversely, when your body is making too much thyroxin, or hyperthyroidism, you can start to feel restless, have sleep problems, and begin to feel anxious.

Understanding Your Sleep

There are two hormones that play a key role in your daily sleep routine: melatonin and cortisol. Melatonin is a hormone that helps in regulating your body’s internal biological clock and it is most active at night. When melatonin is producing at its regular speed, you should be able to get better sleep at night. But that is not always the case.

Cortisol is a hormone that tells your body when to be awake and responsive; so it is most active in the mornings and throughout the day. There are a lot of factors that can affect your cortisol levels such as: stress, diet, overall lifestyle, and other health conditions. If you are experiencing any of these things daily it can start affecting your sleep cycle as well.

The imbalance of either melatonin or cortisol (or both!) can be shown in numerous ways:

These hormones play a huge role in your daily energy levels so it’s very important to make sure they are evenly balanced.
