Discover how bioidentical hormones in West Palm Beach can help with seasonal hormone highs and lows.
In the course of a day, hormones can surge and drop within minutes, influencing many of our daily functions: sleep, metabolism, hunger, and reactions to stress. But did you know hormone levels generally rise and fall slightly throughout the year?
The days are getting shorter. The temperature is much cooler. It’s not just the seasons that are changing. Our bodies are changing too, which is a bit stranger than usual. And they’re probably due to your hormones, too.
Bioidentical hormone therapy is a great way to treat hormone imbalances in men and women. Discover just how effective and excellent bioidentical hormone therapy can be for you here at Hormone Logics in West Palm Beach!

As the calendar turns, here are the most surprising things you can expect:
1. Autumn makes us more productive.
School usually starts in the fall, and there is scientific evidence that backs this up. Cooler weather usually means higher productivity. According to a study of Harvard students, inclement weather increased productivity because students were less distracted by non-work-related activities.
Do you know how spring fever can make you distracted at work? Well, when the weather turns cooler, that phenomenon reverses. Now you can turn those dreary days into an opportunity to shine at work.
2. Autumn makes us a bit moody.
Have you noticed that? When autumn arrives, it’s common for your mood to wane. It might be due to seasonal affective disorder (SAD), seasonal depression, or winter blues, but apparently, changes in our hormones are partly to blame. Scientists are still trying to figure out all the causes, but they believe that changes in hormones and neurotransmitters affect this.
Cortisol levels are closely linked to sleep-wake cycles and light exposure. During darker days, some people don’t get the burst of energy they need and remain sleepy, tired, and moody. Dopamine and serotonin, two neurotransmitters closely linked to depression, have also been shown to change with the seasons.
3. Hello, fall weight gain.
We know that the fall season makes it extra hard to lose weight. Holiday parties, comfort foods, and cooler weather are a recipe for disaster when losing weight. To add to that, our hormones have something to do with it as well.
As daylight decreases, your serotonin levels may drop, making you more vulnerable to comfort foods, such as high carbs, which can aid in boosting serotonin levels. Estrogen levels also increase during colder months, triggering the body to produce more insulin. This, in turn, leads to insulin resistance, high blood sugar, and weight gain.

Seasonal weight gain is typical since the increase in appetite usually coincides with shorter daylight hours and less time to exercise.
4. Autumn improves our sleep.
As the days get shorter in the autumn, sunrises become later, and sunsets become earlier each day—this dip in light triggers adjustments in our bodies’ circadian rhythms, causing us to sleep earlier.
Moreover, research has shown that lower temperatures help us sleep better, so crack your window on a cool fall night, and you’ll get your best sleep yet. This is most likely a result of higher levels of the sleep-promoting chemical melatonin in our brains.
The production of melatonin is blocked by light. During autumn and winter, when daylight is scarce, our melatonin levels are higher, making us feel sleepy.
Things to do this fall…
1. Enjoy nature.
Being outside is a great way to lift your mood. Not only does Vitamin D increase our serotonin levels, but being outside in nature is innately soothing. Go for a hike in the mountains, walk in the park, get out and go Forest Bathing in autumn, when the landscape is breathtaking and colorful, for that instant mood booster.
2. Go outdoors for exercise.
Exercise can improve your mood and prevent seasonal affective disorder, especially when done outdoors in daylight. When the weather is terrible, consider joining a spin class with intervals or weight training, which increases your metabolism, burns fat, improves your mood, and quells cravings.
3. Try bioidentical hormones in West Palm Beach.
It might not be the changing seasons that are causing these symptoms. Try visiting a hormone clinic in West Palm Beach to determine if you’re experiencing hormone imbalance. Bioidentical hormone therapy is a safe and effective way to treat hormone imbalances.
As bioidentical hormones are identical to those produced by the body, they are more easily absorbed and less likely to cause side effects than synthetic hormones. It’s an effective treatment for various age-related symptoms, such as hot flashes, night sweats, mood swings, weight gain, and fatigue.
