Hormonal Imbalances and Life Stages Remedies
Hormonal imbalances - are many hormonal imbalances which disrupt the lives of a huge proportion of our population.
Many people live with 'normal' feelings of turmoil, without realising they are suffering.
Hormonal imbalances like pre-menstrual syndrome/tension may disrupt a womans life by two out the four weeks in a month! My aim is to balance these hormones and nourish the body into a more harmonising way that your body will thank you for.
Life stages-From birth Each woman has a supply of eggs (approximately 2 million) and over the years they are released and die off.
When a women finally reaches 'that age', she simply stops producing eggs. In a normal cycle the hormone FSH is released every month, during this stage however, a woman’s body registers that ovulation is not taking place, therefore FSH is continually being released.
Women are able to produce a form of oestrogen (called oestrone) from the adrenal glands in order to compensate for the decline of oestrogen production from the ovaries.
We also produce oestrogen from fat cells, therefore being ultra-slim will not have health benefits in the long run. Overweight isn’t the answer, either, but from an oestrogen-production point of view, you are better off being slightly overweight than ultra-slim.
Symptoms vary from woman to woman and can be none or plenty:
- Day and night sweats, often getting up to change their night clothes two or three times a night, or even taking a shower in the middle of the night.
- Hot flushes
- Vaginal dryness
- Mood swings
- Declining libido
- Ageing skin
- Lack of energy
- Joint pains
- Weight gain
- Changes in hair quality.
Interestingly, men also experience a lot of these symptoms, with irritability, a declining libido, changes in weight, ageing skin and hair, cheerlessness and anxiety. These symptoms are apparently part of the western ageing process for both men and women, so it’s important not to blame every symptom that you experience on this stage of a women's life. I can help you ease yourself through this time with as little hardship and symptoms as possible, focusing on a nutritious diet plan that is tailored for you.
