Mother’s Day is one of our favorite times of year, because it gives us a chance to celebrate you, moms. For new moms, this time can feel that much more special. You finally have your very own baby to hold, love and take care of. Life is great, right?
Or maybe things aren’t so great. Perhaps something’s changed and you don’t feel as well as you used to. You are tired all the time and it is difficult to take care of your baby. You have insomnia, headaches, brain fog, anxiety, weight gain and you are becoming irritable from the fatigue you feel on a daily basis. You’re thinking, “it wasn’t supposed to be this way.”
Hormonal Imbalance After Childbirth
While you might feel all alone, it is quite common for childbirth to alter hormonal balance and throw you off track, causing all kinds of negative health symptoms. These can be caused by estrogen dominance, hypothyroidism, and adrenal fatigue. It doesn’t always happen after your first baby. It could happen after your second or third, or any time after childbirth.
Common Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms to Look For:
Short term memory loss
Irregular menstrual cycles
Traditional Medicine Often Fails You
Have you gone to your doctor, only to be told that she can’t find anything wrong with you? Are you feeling like it’s all in your head? Have you been told that your blood test results are normal? Symptoms of thyroid problems and hormonal imbalance are commonly misdiagnosed by traditional doctors. Have you been given an antidepressant, because “that’s the only way you’ll come out of this”? Or you might be given a diagnosis that merely describes your symptoms such as fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, IBS, insomnia, depression or anxiety disorder.
