The Secret Of A Balanced Life Is Chemical.
A quick guide for a balanced hormone level and a wise guide for a happy life.
Is there such thing as happy pills without side effects? With this I don’t mean anti-depressant pills releasing serotonin and causing addiction to the medicament. I mean happy pills that cause addiction to happiness and wellbeing… happy pills that cause addiction to positivity and the sunny side up of life. If we can see all in black, I am sure we can change it all to bright… it is all about the color and the painting… it is all about the chemicals: chemicals found in our bodies and mind named HORMONES.
Fortunately those hormones have names, and our mental and body health depends on their balance.
Less Is More! That is all what balance is about.
Let us take for instance the oxytocin hormone. Widely known as love or hug hormone, cuddle chemical, moral molecule, bliss hormone etc. it regulates two female reproductive functions: childbirth and breast-feeding. On a wider level, oxytocin is the hormone responsible of relaxation, trust and psychological stability, and it reduces stress responses and anxiety.
How to balance oxytocin levels in the body? Hug, cuddle and make love.
Testosterone is another happy hormone! It has nothing to do with bulky women at the gym: as a matter of fact, testosterone in balanced doses is responsible of vitality, healthy bone mass and muscle density. It decreases body fat, elevates mood and mental drive, increases libido and protects the heart and brain.
How to keep testosterone level balanced? Make love and exercise continuously to keep up with this happy hormone. If you are a man above 35, it is better to start monitoring the levels of testosterone with your physician.
Next on our list is the progesterone and its multiple benefits: from mood cheering to optimum feeling of wellbeing, this is the happy hormone that stops oestrogen’s‘ tendency to increase fat stores in the waist, hips and thighs and improves the bust line.
How to keep progesterone balanced? Exercise and eat healthy. Ask your physician about some hormone-regulating herbal supplements (such as Macafem): it boost naturally hormonal production without the side effects of synthetic prescriptions.
Thyroid hormones are responsible of our energy, appetite, mood, weight and body temperature, not mentioning the health of your skin, hair and nails.

Have you ever heard of stress hormone being responsible of happiness? Well it is name is cortisol. Cortisol helps the body in several ways – regulating blood pressure, cardiovascular functions, and glucose metabolism – and controls how the body will be dealing with stress. Imbalanced cortisol levels leads to loss of memory, and… Alzheimer.
How to keep cortisol balanced? Happiness and laughter are the best medicines keeping cortisol balanced.
Leptin is the self-control hormone responsible of food cravings: the good news is that our body produces enough Leptin in our fat cells but barely listen to it sending the satiation signs when we do things we must not do like eating grains, processed foods, sugars ending with –ose, etc.
What to do to make our body listen to Leptin signals? The best thing you can do to get the best Leptin coverage is to cut out processed foods, sugars and grains, workout regularly, and get the sleep you need. All of this will help boost Leptin levels to help make you feel like you are fuller and lose weight quicker and easier.
Least but not last, discover oestrogen hormone as one of the happy hormones produced by our body. Low estrogen symptoms: depression, panic attacks, night sweats, bone loss, vaginal dryness, and dry skin. Excess estrogen symptoms: tender breasts, bloating, weight gain, mood swings, night sweats, restless sleep, irritability, uterine fibroids, low thyroid symptoms, and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS).
How to balance oestrogen level? If you experiment any of the above symptoms, consult your physician and monitor your oestrogen levels with hormone regulator medicines.
How to keep our happy hormones balanced? As you can see, we need to live and eat in a healthy way. No excess permitted… an excess is never good, not even excess of love can bring you happiness. Moderate your impulses control and organize your hobbies and your work. Not only it is the key for professional success, but also for happiness.
