Balancing Hormones

Hormonal imbalances are an ever-increasing problem in today's society. I'd like to address some of the causes of hormonal imbalances, the symptoms that arise as a result and how to balance them out naturally. But first, lets take a look at what a hormone is.

A hormone is a chemical messenger in the blood, or a duct in the body, that exerts some kind of physiological effect elsewhere in the body.

Lets look at some examples of hormones in the human body and some of their functions:

-thyroid stimulating hormone is released from the pituitary gland to regulate the production of T3 and T4 in the thyroid gland.

-Triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) are thyroid hormones responsible for metabolic processes in the body and they regulate proper functionality of other glands and organs in the body.

- Insulin is a hormone that regulates proper blood glucose levels.

- Estrogens and testosterone are responsible for the production of male and female secondary sex characteristics as well as reproductive health.

- Renin, angiotensin and aldosterone help regulate blood pressure.

- Thymosin in the thymus gland helps maturate T cells for immune system optimization.

This is a look at some of the hormones in the body and a couple of their basic functions.

The problem is that some of these hormones can sub-optimally function at various times due to a number of underlying factors. Lets explore some of the more common causes of hormonal imbalances.

- Uncontrolled and unhealthily managed stress.

- Cosmetics that contain phthalates and parabens.

- Inflammatory foods can burden the body and affect the synthesis of hormones.

- Poor sleep quality.

- Phytoestrogens (gmo soy)
