Both anxiety and depression are more complex than most people think and they are not always a psychological issue that’s just “in your head”. In fact, hormonal imbalances can often cause these issues.
Anxiety can paralyze you, stealing your joy and passion for life.
When anxiety and depression dominates your life, you can find yourself in a very dark place with low confidence levels and a compromised quality of life.
Here are just some of the symptoms that people can experience:
- Loss of energy
- Panic attacks
- Problems with sleeping
- Having a depressed mood or feeling sad
- Loss of pleasure from activities once enjoyed
- Feeling guilty or worthless
- Thoughts of death or even suicide
Interestingly, the cause of anxiety and depression is often to do with hormonal imbalances that people experience.
When your hormones are out of balance, this can have a dramatic effect upon the health of your body and lead to mental/emotional problems.
I talk about this in my video today.
Hormonal Imbalances That Cause Depression And Anxiety
There are a number of hormonal issues that can lead to experiencing depression and unwanted levels of anxiety.
Menstruation and PMS. Although not a hormonal disorder, ladies who have hormonal and health imbalances can experience a lot of changes during “that time of the month”. In a healthy body, these symptoms should not dramatically affect your life, however in a body that’s toxic and unhealthy, menstruation can bring about a lot of discomfort.
The changes in the oestrogen and progesterone levels can greatly affect you mental and emotional state.
Adrenal fatigue which affects many people in today’s world can bring about increased anxiety levels and depression. Adrenal issues — imbalances in the body’s stress hormones adrenaline and cortisol, as well as DHEA — can cause a variety of symptoms that appear to be mental health-related, including depression and anxiety.
A chronic excess of stress hormones can make you feel anxious, irritable and tired, even after sleep.
Thyroid problems such as hypo/hyper thyroid can also result in depression and anxiety. Unfortunately, 60% of people with thyroid disorders don’t even know that they have this imbalance as doctors often don’t diagnose it properly.
Pre-menopausal or menopausal females can also experience anxiety and depression because the body starts to reduce and stop producing hormones related to a woman’s fertility.
So what can do to lessen or even eliminate feelings of anxiety that greatly affect the quality of your life?

Before you go down the road of antidepressants and/or anti-anxiety medications, make sure that you work on balancing your hormone related disorders and change your diet and lifestyle.
Antidepressants and anti-anxiety medications often have significant side effects, and frequently don’t even resolve the symptoms if the underlying cause is a hormonal issue.
