Just a few of the problems caused by hormonal imbalances include acne, night sweats, chronic
fatique, vaginal dryness, mood swings, depression and anxiety,
headaches, fuzzy thinking, and water retention or swelling in various parts of the body.
There are a whole host of problems, symptoms, and conditions which are related to, or caused by, hormonal imbalances in a woman's body. In fact, so many things are caused by hormonal problems, that many of the complaints are dismissed by doctors who don't know any better.
More severe problems are also caused by hormonal imbalances though. Some of these include infertility, Endometriosis, Fibroids, heart palpitations, urinary disfunctions and infections, breast pain, irregular periods and more.
These problems are not limited to women entering menopause however, which is the common belief of both men and women. In fact, many problems which affect teenage girls, young adult women, and middle aged women are all caused in whole or in part by hormonal problems.
Teenage girls often experience heavy acne problems when their body is going through puberty, and this is known to be caused by the hormonal changes happening within her body. Unfortunately many young women never get their hormones balanced properly though, so they continue to struggle with acne throughout their lives.
Very painful periods and menstruation which produces heavy blood flow is another symptom or side effect of hormonal imbalances of women at all ages. In fact, a common prescription remedy for these symptoms for years has been to prescribe birth control pills, which are known to adjust the hormone levels in a woman's body.
Women's bodies create two hormones naturally: estrogen and progesterone. Both hormones play important roles in a woman's body, and the balance needs to be kept in order for everything to work properly. Many things can throw the balance of these hormones off however, including stress and lack of nutrition or proper exercise.
Doctors and medical scientists appear to be concerned primarily with estrogen however, probably because a woman's body produces less of this hormone as she ages. The link between the two hormones, and the full importance of the progesterone's role in a woman's body is not fully known. So common treatments simply try to replace estrogen in a woman's body as it begins to be produced less.
The natural approach however, is to restore the balance of the hormone levels in the body. This in turn relieves the myriad of conditions and symptoms caused by an imbalance, and helps improve a woman's overall health in the process too.
