Hormonal balance is vital to a healthy mind and body. Hormonal imbalance is not just a problem for women as they age, but a problem for women of all ages, and many women resign themselves to suffering from symptoms of the monthly “curse”; painful cramps, mood swings, depression, fatigue and heavy bleeding. Hormone production increases during puberty and peaks in your 20s and it is not uncommon for women in their 20’s and early 30’s to complain digestive issues, a lack of energy or difficulty with sleeping. Prolonged hormone imbalances put women at risk for chronic illness and autoimmune diseases.

Cortisol can help control blood sugar levels, regulate metabolism, help reduce inflammation, and assist with memory formulation. It has a controlling effect on salt and water balance and helps control blood pressure. In women, cortisol also supports the developing fetus during pregnancy. Elevated cortisol levels can lead to short-term memory loss, loss of muscle and osteoporosis.
Estrogen regulates the menstrual cycle, and helps regulate cortisol levels, salt retention, water retention, increases HDL cholesterol and triglycerides. Low levels of estrogen can lead to an increased risk of heart disease.
Progesterone is produced in the ovaries, brain and adrenal glands. Progesterone receptors are found in every cell of the body. It is neuroprotective and also helps prevent uterine and breast cancers, osteoporosis, the formation of fibroid and ovarian cysts, reduces anxiety, and aids in sleep.
Pregnenolone is made in the brain and helps enhance our memory. It is also important to cellular repair in the brain and nervous system, protecting us from neuronal injury and aiding in cerebral function. It is the main hormone used by the adrenal glands to aid in the production of cortisol, DHEA, progesterone, testosterone and estrogen.
Testosterone plays a vital rolein bone strength, brain function and the overall development of lean muscle mass and strength. It also helps contribute to a general sense of well-being, higher energy levels and increased sex drive.
Growth Hormone (HGH) helps to regulate body composition, body fluids, muscle and bone growth, sugar and fat metabolism, and heart function. The benefits of HGH therapy include: increased energy levels, improved exercise performance, increased lean muscle mass, hair growth and stronger bones.
Insulin is produced by the pancreas and helps control blood sugar levels, stores glucose, stimulates lipid uptake, and inhibits the breakdown of glycogen, lipids and protein. Low levels of insulin can lead to weight gain, headaches, fatigue, diabetes, and cardiovascular disease.
DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands, brain and skin. It functions as a precursor to sex hormones including testosterone and may help lower inflammation, improve bone density, increase muscle mass, protect against depression, reduce cognitive decline, aid in weight loss, improve cardiovascular health and reduce the risk of diabetes.
The Thyroid regulates the energy production and metabolism in every cell in the body. It regulates body temperature, metabolism and cerebral function. It helps maintain energy levels and cerebral function. The Thyroid Hormone also helps remove toxic metals and chemicals, increases fat breakdown, improves hair growth, and reduces cholesterol levels and body weight.
Melatonin is a hormone secreted by the pineal gland in the brain. It helps regulate other hormones and maintains the body's circadian rhythm. The circadian rhythm is an internal 24-hour "clock" that plays a critical role in when we fall asleep and when we wake up. When it is dark, your body produces more melatonin. Melatonin also helps control the timing and release of female reproductive hormones.
