Women’s hormones become imbalanced from things like estrogen dominance, having children, stress, diet, lifestyle and aging, just to name a few.
Hormone imbalances, including estrogen dominance can show up as severe premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD) in younger women, to irritability in middle-aged women, to hot flashes, night sweats and other symptoms in peri- and post-menopausal women.
Hormone imbalance and estrogen dominance can have many symptoms such as:
Low libido (sex drive)
Vaginal dryness and/or atrophy
Rapid aging (skin)
Aches and pains
Poor thyroid function
Hormones are the body’s fountain of youth. As we age, their production declines or is easily affected by our environment whether it’s stress, chemicals or nutrition. Keeping hormones in balance keeps the whole system in balance while imbalanced hormones continue to cause more and more problems that have wide-reaching effects on your health.
At its worst, hormone imbalance leads to bone fractures (osteoporosis), heart disease, cognitive decline (dementia), sexual dysfunction, and a host of mental-emotional problems like irritability, depression and anxiety. Achieving hormone balance can prevent many of these conditions.
Natural hormone replacement and natural hormone therapy is preferable over the synthetic hormones (progestins) or those derived from pregnant horse’s urine (Premarin).
