Hormone imbalances reveal the rhythm of hormones and their fluctuations which can help identify the key causes of disorders such as premenstrual syndrome (PMS), infertility, and menstrual irregularities. Hormonal balance is the key to optimal health. Research has long shown that fluctuating levels of estradiol, progesterone, and testosterone play a major role in a woman´ s overall health affecting a variety of conditions including menstrual cycles, sleep patterns, menopause, infertility PCOS, PMS, breast cancer and endometriosis.
The Importance of Having Balanced Female Hormones
Female hormones are crucial to a woman’s reproductive health. The main hormones affecting the menstrual cycle and fertility are produced by glands in the brain and by the ovaries. Those hormones regulate menstruation, fertility and sex drive, any one of which can be adversely affected if the production of these hormones goes out of balance, further hormonal changes gradually cause reproductive organs to shut down eventually leading to menopause and female hormone imbalance symptoms. Apart from those important points, female hormones also help to maintain good health and have anti-aging properties. Despite popular belief menopause and menopause symptoms can also be reversed.
Estrogen Deficiency, Osteoporosis and Menopause
In addition to the symptoms listed above, osteoporosis and memory loss are also common problems associated with menopause or the loss of vital hormone production, as estrogen hormones decrease in the case of estrogen deficiency other factors come into play such as slowed bone growth leading to osteoporosis, brain function is also effected with increasing risk of alzheimer’s disease. Menopause is the term used to describe the slowing of the important female hormonal system and can be experienced by women at any age, often these symptoms are not a result of being “normal” but an indication that something else is causing or interfering with normal hormone production. The following are examples of some of the causes of menopause and estrogen deficiency:
