Arguing and Hormonal Imbalances
Have you ever wondered the reason some people argue? Their tendence to argue can certainly be a stressor for those who interact with them. Hormonal specialist, Dr. Michael Borkin, points out that arguing impacts the stress hormone cortisol (arguing lowers the levels) as well as the lower range of blood sugar (arguing raises the lower levels – as opposed to insulin that impacts higher ranges of blood sugar levels). Some individuals trigger arguments because five minutes of negative interactions results in a six-hour decrease in cortisol levels. They are, in effect, self-medicating and tend to argue at 6am, 3pm, and 9pm. When hormonal imbalances are addressed, arguing tendencies may resolve. That's one reason to deal with hormonal imbalances--for yourself as well as for those around you..
