A Major Key to Feeling Energized and Vital
Hormones — such as estrogen, testosterone, adrenaline and insulin — are extremely important chemical messengers that affect many aspects of your overall health. Hormones are secreted by various glands and organs including your thyroid, adrenals, pituitary, ovaries, testicles and pancreas. The entire endocrine system works together to control the level of hormones circulating throughout your body, and if one or more is even slightly imbalanced it can cause widespread, major health problems. Hormonal imbalances affect many millions of people worldwide, in the form of common disorders like diabetes, thyroid disorders, menstrual irregularities, infertility, low testosterone and estrogen dominance. Symptoms include feeling anxious, tired, irritable, gaining or losing weight, not sleeping well and noticing changes in your sex drive, focus and appetite.
Perimenopause & Menopause
As people age, their hormone levels decline, starting in their twenties and thirties. In addition, toxins and other insults from the environment and food supply are believed to contribute to the development of hormonal imbalances. Each individual has a unique balance of hormones. During perimenopause and menopause this unique balance can be disrupted. Getting back into balance and feeling more yourself can be a tough task for many. As you transition through menopause, you may experience a variety of related symptoms. Some may occur infrequently, and others daily. The intensity of your symptoms can also fluctuate from mild or moderate, to severe. All of these symptoms occur because of hormone imbalance.
