Master Your Menopause
5 Steps to Master a Smooth Natural Menopause
Hormones specifically, gender specific hormones have the ability to help us feel focused, fantastic, positive, and energetic ….
Menopause can leave you feeling tired, fat, HOT flushed, grumpy, foggy brain, bloated, breast tenderness, problems with menstrual cycle and the reproductive system.
We all have hormones but don’t really think much about them until they are out of balance and start causing symptoms.
When hormones are mentioned, generally PMS or menopause come to mind. However, the endocrine (hormone) system is in charge of much more than the menstrual cycle.
Your hormones are all interconnected through an intricate feedback system. The thyroid gland, adrenal glands, ovaries, testes, pancreas and pituitary all work together to keep your body functioning at its optimal level. Men and women can both experience symptoms of hormonal imbalance, but women definitely seem to get the larger share of the pie when it comes to hormonal driven symptoms.
Your hormones are responsible for maintaining mood, reproductive function, sleep, sex drive, and the ability to handle stress, just to name a few functions. So it stands to reason that when they are out of balance, the range of symptoms is wide and variable depending on the person and what other stressors are affecting the individual.
These hormone signs are related to the gender specific hormones. Stress/adrenal exhaustion is dealt with here.
