Every day my inbox is flooded with questions from women feeling burned out- they are desperate to find out how to regain their happiness again. Women want to know how to avoid those hormonally charged fluctuations. They want to know how to live a life they confidently love. And they’re trying to figure out how to find joy without taking unnecessary medications.
Chances are, you probably have these same types of questions. And you’ve probably even spent some time on blogs, forums and around the web, trying to get answers. The problem is, you keep getting conflicting answers, right?
For example, just pop into any anxiety/depression forum and ask this question: What medication is the best for anxiety and depression with the least amount of side effects?
I guarantee that you’ll get conflicting advice. Some people will tell you to try Prozac. Another group will advocate that you should just take CBD to help. And just to make it extra confusing, you might even get a few people telling you to adderall and that your anxiety and depression are because of ADHD.
So you’re left to sort through the wheat and the chaff.
If you’re new to that particular community, it’s even harder because you don’t know who to trust. Because the truth is, there is definitely a link between how you are feeling NOW and how you felt before your last pregnancy or before you started having perimenopause symptoms.
There are experts out there who want you to think they know what they’re talking about – but they’re just as clueless as everyone else. And in some cases, these types of people are offering downright dangerous advice- (AKA addictive stimulants).
That’s why I compiled this list of frequently asked questions.
I wanted to make sure you got the right advice from someone who’s successfully navigated the world of hormonally charged depression and anxiety. Read on…
That said, some examples of hormones that may contribute to anxiety include:
Stress Hormones (Cortisol) Cortisol can have a significant effect on your brain which can trigger anxiety as a symptom and anything that increases cortisol production or decreases cortisol reduction (like a lack of exercise) can cause anxiety.
Sex Hormones (Estrogen/Testosterone/Progesterone) Countless amounts of studies have confirmed that anxiety often is cyclical. Significant fluctuations in life like menopause, perimenopause, childbearing years and more are a common cause. Generally, those changes affect sex hormones, such as the balance between estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone, indicating that sex hormones do, in fact, contribute to anxiety.
Thyroid Hormone An overactive thyroid can also cause anxiety, and many struggle with panic attacks when this is the cause. When you suffer from hyperthyroidism, your body goes on overdrive and starts to increase your overall body's metabolism, causing hyperventilation and an increased heart rate, among other symptoms. On the converse, hypothyroidism, (not enough thyroid), also appears to contribute to anxiety due to the way a lack of thyroid hormone affects the brain.
Estrogen: helps produce the mood-regulating neurotransmitters dopamine and serotonin
Progesterone: promotes calm and relaxation, but can cause depression, anxiety, and irritability when not in balance with the other sex hormones
Testosterone: found in higher levels in men (but women still produce it), and regulates muscle and bone health, as well as sex drive; low levels share many common signs of depression
DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone): reduces brain inflammation to help regulate stress and depression
Hormone fluctuations should NOT hinder your happiness! Women do not deserve to live that way for the rest of their lives! The mistake most women make is they are fed up with thier symptoms like constant mood swings, heavy periods, acne, or irregular cycles, that they take the quickest route that they have been told which is taking synthetic hormones like oral birth control, and estrogens.
Look, if you are a woman wanting a quick fix, go for it! But since you are a woman who wants to feel their absolute best day in and day out, let me help you get to the root of those issues instead of defaulting to the bandaid. Women should NOT feel like taking birth control is their only option to regulate their hormones when they know they have the potential to gain weight, loose their libido, change their moods, with those medications. You deserve a better approach to problem solving your pesky symptoms.
At last, you finally know the TRUTH about irritability, anxiety and depression and how our hormonal imbalances can contribute to that. And means that you can now take the necessary steps to handle your hormones more confidently, because you’re armed with the knowledge you need to succeed. See you at the top!

My Doc Says I need an antidepressant- but That doesn't feel right!
The current medical system bases the diagnosis of mental health illnesses on the symptoms of the patients in conventional medicine. Addressing the symptoms of the disease is the primary concern of psychiatric treatment. However, these medications are only a bandaid.
