Hormones affect the health and the body deeply. These chemicals are extremely powerful and keeping them balanced is of crucial importance.
The modern way of life is the cause for hormonal imbalances. The unhealthy eating habits, pesticides, pollutants and chronic stress impact the hormonal balance. They affect the estrogen levels in the body.
This female hormone, the estrogen, regulates the menstrual cycle, stimulates the division of cells and play huge role in the phase of puberty for the secondary female characteristics development.
The hormonal imbalance affects the body in three ways causing adrenal fatigue, thyroid problems and estrogen dominance and it can be very dangerous for your health and lifestyle because if left untreated they can cause other serious medical disorders.
Adrenal fatigue is caused by the chronic stress. According to Dr. Wilson this condition is the result of chronic stress, constant exposure to stressful situations, chronic exhaustion and severe respiratory infections.
If not treated the adrenal fatigue can lead to Addison`s disease which affects the adrenal cortex.
The symptoms of adrenal fatigue are:
Low blood pressure
Low blood sugar levels
Thyroid hormones are produced by the thyroid gland and these hormones spread through the blood to every organ and every tissue in the organism. If the thyroid gland doesn’t function properly and the thyroid hormones are not balanced all the organs will be affected and they will not function properly.
This condition affects millions of people worldwide.
The two types of thyroid disease which are most frequent are hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism
Hyperthyroidism is excessive activity of the thyroid gland and the symptoms of this condition are: anxiety, sleep disorders, weight loss and increased appetite, restlessness, intolerance to heat and sweating.
Hypothyroidism is low activity of the thyroid gland and the symptoms of this condition are: constant fatigue, muscles weakness, intolerance of cold, slower heartbeat.
The symptoms of these conditions, hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism, can be treated with medications but there is more efficient way to eliminate the symptoms and this way is also completely natural and with no side effects which is very important.
Estrogen dominance is a condition caused by high estrogen levels in the system and insufficient amount of progesterone or complete lack of it.
The high estrogen levels in the body can cause:
Loss of libido
