Are my Hormones Imbalanced?
Several young women today, some in their thirties and some even younger, have started to experience the early onset of hormone imbalance symptoms and their associated disorders.
The most common Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms are weight gain, fatigue, loss of libido, depression, headaches, joint pain, and mood swings. Other frequent problems include uterine fibroids, cancer, fibrocystic breast disease, menstrual problems, autoimmune disorders, pre-menopausal bone loss, and a high incidence of osteoporosis after menopause.
More and more doctors are becoming aware that the common link between all these symptoms is the imbalance between the primary female hormones, progesterone and estrogen.
These are the two hormones that must co-exist in perfect balance and harmony. Any variations and changes in this perfect balance will start to have a dramatic effect on the woman’s health, thereby causing the onset of the above-mentioned symptoms.
How do women become estrogen dominant?
Ten to fifteen years before menopause, young women frequently had anovulatory cycles. They made sufficient estrogen to have a menstruation but they did not ovulate (hence the anovulatory cycle). The lack of progesterone is the ideal setting for estrogen dominance.
Other causes of hormone imbalance symptoms in women:
- Too much stress.
- Environmental reasons, including pollution, poisons.
- Taking the Pill. Introduced in the 1960s the Pill was made out of synthetic estrogen, and although it was declared safe by the FDA, the fact that several women were dying was not taken into account. In addition to several other symptoms, the Pill caused lower progesterone levels, causing hormone imbalance in these unfortunate women.
- Using hormone replacement therapy or HRT as it is commonly known. The HRT is a combination of synthetic progestins and progestogens, as well as estrogen, and usage of these pills causes a hormonal imbalance in women.
- Poor diet.
- Above average consumption of non-organic and also animal products that have excessive amounts with estrogen.
How do I treat hormone imbalance symptoms?
Using progesterone cream throughout anovulatory months can stop the symptoms of PMS. Young women with PMS have a tendency to apprehend Pre Menstrual Symptoms despite the use of traditional progesterone. When stress is present it increases cortisol production in the body; cortisol will block (or competes for) progesterone receptors. Extra natural progesterone cream is then required to beat this blockage, and stress management is vital.
How to choose an efficient Topical Natural Progesterone Cream
The best way to administer progesterone is topically (transdermally). Transdermal cream preparation of progesterone is capable of carrying the hormone through the skin into the blood stream. The cream needs to have an adequate amount of progesterone in it, which is at least 30 milligrams per gram. Many over the counter creams have little progesterone, for example 5 milligrams per ounce or none at all.
Note that the creams that are made from Wild Mexican Yams are not metabolized to progesterone by women and it will have absolutely no effect on the level of progesterone in the body.
