Stress is known to be linked with weight gain. When your body is under stress, the adrenal glands produce more cortisol (a hormone recognized to produce belly fat). Other contributors to weight gain are decreased thyroid function which slows down your metabolism which makes it harder for your body to lose weight. Cortisol production utilizes the same building blocks like with our sex hormones such as testosterone, DHEA and estrogen.
Hormonal imbalances such as these are a sure way to weight gain. So, it is important to correct the imbalance right away.
Intermountain Health and Wellness helps patients overcome hormonal imbalance and the effects of weight gain. It uses natural bioidentical hormones integrated with tailored nutrition and fitness programs. As we grow old, naturally, our hormones undergo a decline which may also affect our metabolism to slow down.
