Women struggle with hormone challenges at various stages of their life. Simple modifications diet or sessions of Acupuncture could help in tremendous ways.
Hormones act as chemical messengers that are released into the blood stream to act on an organ in another part of the body. Although hormones reach all parts of the body, only target cells with compatible receptors are equipped to respond. Over 50 hormones have been identified in humans and other vertebrates. Hormones control or regulate many biological processes and are often produced in exceptionally low amounts within the body.
Some common examples are as follows. Estrogens are the group of hormones responsible for female sexual development. They are produced primarily by the ovaries and in small amounts by the adrenal glands.
The thyroid gland secretes two main hormones, thyroxine and triiodothyronine, into the bloodstream. These thyroid hormones stimulate all the cells in the body and control biological processes such as growth, reproduction, development, and metabolism.
Some of the most common signs and symptoms of hormone imbalances include: Infertility and irregular or painful periods, Weight gain or weight loss (that's unexplained and not due to intentional changes in your diet), Depression, Fatigue, and anxiety.
If you are struggling with infertility, or facing PMS symptoms, there are viable options to manage symptoms and improve outcomes.
