Are your hormones out of whack? Signs of hormonal imbalance are extremely common and surprisingly varied and, says author and yoga teacher Lynn Jensen in this free download.

Symptoms of hormonal imbalance range from mood swings, weight gain, PMS, low back ache, low libido, insomnia, thyroid imbalances, fertility issues, hot flashes, poor immune function, anxiety, depression and blood sugar imbalances.

Hormonal imbalance is very common in today’s society, because our modern lifestyle tends to wreck havoc on the endocrine system, Lynn notes.

From unmanaged stress, long work hours to poor diet and environmental toxins, our day-to-day life often imbalances the glands and organs of the endocrine system. Adrenal burnout, an overburdened pancreas trying to deal with excessive intake of sugar, and environmental toxins that serve as endocrine disruptors are just some of the lifestyle factors that constantly assault our endocrine system and affects hormonal imbalance.

The symptoms of hormonal imbalance are so common that many people have come to accept them as the new normal, Lynn notes. But once we learn to recognize signs of hormonal imbalance for what they are, we can take steps to deal with them. The result can be dramatic improvement in wellbeing and health.

Lynn offers insights into why yoga offers particularly powerful tools for working with the endocrine system. By learning how to target our yoga practice for hormonal health, we can rebalance the endocrine system.

This in turn can help balance our thyroid gland, decrease PMS and moodiness, balance irregular cycles, improve fertility, and for older women, reduce the impact of hot flashes—to mention a few possible impacts. The key, Lynn notes, is to understand the endocrine system, and learn what each gland is doing for us. She shares her own experiences teaching yoga for improving hormonal health and enhancing fertility.
