Female Hormones

Optimal hormonal health is vital to overall wellbeing. Most women have experienced symptoms of hormone imbalance at some stage, but for some women their hormones can literally be the bain of their life, with a surprising number suffering from early adolescence, right through child-bearing and on into the menopause. The symptoms may change but the feelings of frustration and helplessness remain the same.

Women’s hormonal issues are usually caused by in imbalance in the two main female hormones, oestrogen and progesterone, and symptoms may include any of the following:

 

 • Menstrual cycle irregularities
 • PMS
 • Mood swings
 • Infertility
 • Low sex drive
 • Fibroids
 • Painful breasts
 • PCOS
 • Hirsutism
 • Endometriosis
 • Amenorrhoea
 • Ovulatory pain

The good news is that fluctuatations in hormone levels can be positively influenced by diet and lifestyle factors, meaning that suffering doesn’t have to be forever.
