Unbalanced Hormones Can Wreak Havoc in Your Life.
Hormones are chemical messengers, delivered to the tissues through the blood, that affect growth and development, metabolism, mood, stress management, tissue regeneration, sexual function and reproduction. Imbalances in your hormone levels can cause issues like insomnia, fatigue, headaches, heartburn, weight gain, bone loss, depression and more.
As you age, your reproductive system begins to shut down and your hormone production naturally declines. For women, this is menopause, and it typically happens between ages 41-59. Women can suffer from myriad symptoms during this years-long process, including hot flashes, night sweats, feeling clammy, irritability, anxiety, mood swings, sudden tears, depression, insomnia, chronic fatigue, diminished libido, vaginal dryness, weight-loss difficulties, and more.
Men also experience slower hormone production as they age causing a myriad of symptoms and distress.
The hormones secreted by your adrenal glands help with your stress response. Healthy adrenals respond to stress by increasing output of these helpful hormones. DHEA, a precursor to estrogen and testosterone, may protect against cancer, bacteria, viruses, fungus, yeast, parasites and allergies, among other things. Cortisol stimulates your liver to convert amino acids in your blood to glucose for energy, reduces inflammation and allergies, regulates blood pressure and helps you adapt to everyday demands. Adrenaline gives you speedy boosts of energy. When stress becomes chronic, the adrenal glands can’t keep up, and cortisol and DHEA levels deplete. This condition is called adrenal fatigue or adrenal exhaustion, and includes symptoms such as chronic fatigue, irritability, depression and digestive troubles.
There are safe and effective treatment options to help reduce these symptoms and restore your body’s systems to more balanced levels for optimal health and well-being.
