Hormonal Imbalance In Women

Common Signs & Cause Of Hormonal Imbalance In Women 

Some health issues are easy to diagnose and fix, if you fall and break a bone the

treatment is fairly clear a similar thing  can be said for most infections.Even

disease such as cancer and diabetes can be discovered through symptoms and 

tests, but hormones are different story.


Many people don't realize  just how much hormones affect many people and how

our bodies function,hormones control  so many functions : like cortisol which is the

stress hormone.Hormones also control how quickly we burn calories, our  libido,

acne , hair loss, weight loss, moods and much more.


An Imbalance in these hormones can lead to a multitude of symptoms that we

need to maintain our"hormones level"  the right way in order maintain our health. 

I said the right way because they might be methods that may not be correct  but

might work.A good analogy may be putting the wrong type of oil in your car, it will

run but it will do so poorly and may ruin the car in the long run.Some with

hormones in the body they need the right kind of treatment depending on the

Imbalance as I will explain in detail below.


What Are Hormones ? 


Hormones are biological chemicals that are part of the Endocrine system, these

chemicals are created by the  Endocrine glands.The chemicals then travel

through our bloodstream and send messages to the surrounding tissues as  well

as organs and intern control most of the bodies system , these include hunger to

our move intricate and delicate system like reproduction as well as our emotion

and moods.


Are Your Hormones Imbalanced ?


 Will in order for you to know you need to specific because there are many

different types of hormones,therefore  many different ways for them to be

Imbalanced.If your feeling that something is off or not right,its a very good idea to

check if you're experiencing symptoms of an Imbalance.


Lets take a look at a more common hormone Imbalance as well  as there

symptoms. To find out more about These imbalances you can check  
























Thyroid Imbalance Symptoms


The Thyroid is incharge of controlling a persons metabolism, it releases

hormones like (T3) and thyroxine(T4).These hormones regulate your energy l

evels, weight, growth and many more.


Thyroid basically controls the rate of metabolism  and if hormones are imbalanced

this may reduce the rate at which your hormones work efficiently, your Thyroid

can be under or over active and the following are symptoms for both.


Hypothroid (Under active)


If your thyroid is not producing enough of it hormones then you may experience

the following.


  • Depression or Mood

on top of the kidneys.The adrenal cortex releases hormones that are essential for

us to live whilst the adrenal medulla release hormones that might not be as
