Did you know your body has built-in Ativan?

Anxiety is a common complaint these days.  Friends and even doctors have told us that it’s all “in our head”. Well perhaps it’s actually all in our hormones.  Progesterone, a sex hormone often think of for fertility actually has a wide variety of functions including improving sleep, increasing sexual desire, enhancing mood and probably the most forgotten function is its calming (anti-anxiety) effect.

Common indications that your progesterone levels might not be so optimal:

  • Not enjoying your favorite things anymore
  • Trouble sleeping
  • Loss of focus and concentration
  • Experiencing brain fog
  • Migraines and headaches
  • Feeling sad or depressed

If you said yes to any of these than you may have suboptimal levels of progesterone, which can be easily fixed through the proper use of vitamins, minerals and herbs as well as bio-identical hormones.  Balancing your progesterone levels will help you stay calm and be more focused.  Warning: you may need to spend less time at yoga.
