Hormonal Imbalance, or Anxiety?
Exploring The Three Principles with Sarie Taylor
Things I used to think, feel and do before I saw what I see now!
I used to firmly believe that my constant anxiety was due to a hormonal imbalance. I would regularly get my thyroid checked and constantly ask doctors to investigate.
Now, I realise that my hormones were probably imbalanced because of the chronic stress, overthinking, and anxiety I experienced. Our bodies prioritise the production of cortisol, the stress hormone, because it is essential for survival. It keeps us alert and alive.
So, it's likely that my hormones were indeed imbalanced, but not because of an underlying hormonal issue. Instead, it was because of the constant stress and worry I subjected myself to. The incessant "what if" thoughts and overthinking had a significant impact on my body.
These thoughts and messages we send to our brain have a direct physiological response. They can affect our hormone levels and overall well-being.
Therefore, while it's true that my hormones may have been slightly off, it wasn't in the way I initially believed. I thought there would be a clear hormonal imbalance that could be identified through tests, and a simple solution provided by the doctor. However, it doesn't work that way.
I also now see that the amount of time I spent analysing and trying to figure out what was wrong with me was a huge part of the problem.
Physical symptoms of any kind, including those related to hormones, are alerting us to pay attention and to get present in our lives, take care of ourselves, and settle our minds, rather than over analyse.
It was only once I began to my journey with The Three Principles that I began to understand this, and it's a subject I always love to explore with my members and 1-to-1 clients - in fact, I've even had an expert hormone doctor do several guest sessions inside The Membership, and we touched on it a little in my 3 Day Mini Course too- so if it's something you want to explore further, those would be great places to begin!

Are we overcomplicating mental health?
The continuous spiral of talking about mental illness and neglecting to discuss mental health that’s within us all!
Finding herself in a mental hospital for a month aged 22, her worst fears of going crazy had come true! Sarie truly believed she was broken for many years, and now sees that this was in part due to massively over complicating what it meant be a human being. After a long period of exploring and training as a psychotherapist, still burning out every 18 months for another ten years, Sarie finally found the answer, and now shares the surprising simplicity of it all to help others get the same relief.
Sarie has trained as a transactional analysis psychotherapist, as well as working and training in many other therapeutic disciplines, such as NLP, CBT, DBT and hypnotherapy. Sarie is also an author, celebrity coach and therapist, working with thousands of people a year, of all ages, all over the world. Her main aim is to help them really see the simplicity and beauty behind human nature, getting out of their heads and into their lives, being able to see that the inside out nature of life really is a gift. This removes limitations and stories they may hold about themselves, and as a result finding an ease and contentment in life they often never knew was possible.
