All about balance – hormonal & emotional
Hormones play a vital role in every woman’s health and well-being. Every month, the female hormones estrogen and progesterone are produced. The ratio between these two hormones, as well as the quantities produced by the body, can vary throughout the menstrual cycle…as well as during perimenopause and menopause.
This is perfectly normal, and will result in various changes in mood, skin and hair growth, as well as in menstruation itself. One of the major hormones affecting the brain, the gonadotrophin-releasing hormone, alters the functioning of the hypothalamus – which in turn affects the pituitary gland, which then affects the ovaries, fallopian tubes and uterus.
Women of all ages may experience hormonal changes, often with symptoms becoming evident in their late twenties through their forties. Many women also experience symptoms of hormonal change during their premenstrual cycle causing various symptoms ranging from mild to strong.
The natural way
Hormonal balance during a woman’s life may be influenced by a variety of factors such as nutrition, diet, lifestyle, exercise, stress, emotions, age and ovulation.
Natural remedies also have a long history of use in promoting female reproductive health and hormonal balance – assisting women throughout the ages to stay healthy before and during the menstrual cycle, as well as during perimenopause and menopause without unwanted side effects (Burke BE, Olson RD. Cusack BJ. “Randomized, controlled trial of phytoestrogen in the prophylactic treatment of menstrual migraine.” Biomed. Pharmacother. 2002; 56(6):283-288).
