Hormones.... are yours leaving you hanging out to dry?
Your hormones need to be balanced and buoyant!
From puberty, through the reproductive years to menopause and beyond, having balanced hormones and in good supply is the key to sailing through these lifestages with ease. When balanced, these chemical messengers support health and well being.
The hormones concerned are the major reproductive hormones- estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Also players in synchrony are the stress hormones- adrenaline and cortisol and the thyroid responsible for energy and the metabolism.
Sufficient nutrient availability is critical for these hormones to play their part in your optimum health. For example - progesterone is dependent on zinc and B vitamins, estrogen needs B vitamins, magnesium and iron, the adrenals crave Vit C, the thyroid can't function without iodine, selenium and tyrosine.
Nutritional biochemistry is a very effective treatment modality and can free up vitamin and minerals which are frequently blocked by heavy metals such as aluminium, copper, mercury, lead and cadmium - all in our environment and so hard to avoid.
In practice I find the heavy metals leave the body as environmental toxins and pathogens like yeasts and bacteria are addressed. There is clearly a strong symbiotic relationship between the three!
So, don't accept the symptoms associated with hormonal imbalance - irregular or absent or painful periods, fatigue, weight gain, fertilty problems, acne, menopausal symptoms like hot flushes, depression, night sweats, mood swings.
Know that through nutritional biochemical treatment along with diet and lifestyle changes you can achieve balanced buoyant hormones.
