Treating Hormones, Blood Sugar & Adrenal Issues

 

Cornerstone Wellness Center will work with you to address issues with hormones, blood sugar, and adrenals. Hormones play a crucial role in energy, stamina, vitality, and wellbeing of not only women but men as well. Our Adrenal glands are a big part of how our hormones and the blood sugar helps create a balance throughout our bodies. These tiny glands work day and night trying to maintain balance with our hectic lifestyles. When years of stress invade, our body cannot adapt to the situations that surround us as well or as fast. This is when symptoms arise and havoc begins. Getting to the root of the cause pertaining to these issues is key. Visit a Cornerstone Wellness Center in Gilbert, Mesa, or Scottsdale today.

  • Hormones: Hormones are chemical messengers that travel through our blood and affect every organ and tissue. Estrogen is the main female hormone produced by the ovaries and is responsible for reproduction, menstruation, and menopause. Testosterone is the main sex hormones found in both men and women and is by nature an anabolic steroid that helps the human body build tissue. Serotonin is responsible for regulating mood, sleep cycles, appetite, memory, and muscular functions. Cortisol is produced by the adrenal glands and is responsible for helping a body stay healthy and energetic. The main purpose of cortisol is to control psychological and physical stress.

     

  • Blood Sugar: You may not notice there is a problem with your blood sugar levels, but that doesn’t mean there might not be one present. It is important to monitor and know the symptoms of having a diet that is full of too many foods that send your blood glucose on a roller coaster ride of high and low levels. These glucose level swings can result in damage to your blood vessels, raising your cholesterol, and put you at risk for heart disease.

     

  • Adrenals: The adrenal glands sit on top of the kidneys and are important for controlling stress and inflammation within the body. It is important to remember that not all stress is bad and in small doses, stress can be good for you. But when chronic stress – caused by long work hours, emotional stress, over training, dietary stresses such as gluten, poor sleep habits, pain, and inflammation get out of control, this leads to problems with the adrenals.
