Hormonal imbalances occur when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the bloodstream. Because of their essential role in the body, even small hormonal imbalances can cause side effects throughout the body.
Hormones are chemicals that are produced by glands in the endocrine system. Hormones travel through the bloodstream to the tissues and organs, delivering messages that tell the organs what to do and when to do it.
Hormones are important for regulating most major bodily processes, so a hormonal imbalance can affect a wide range of bodily functions. Hormones help to regulate:
-metabolism and appetite
-reproductive cycles and s*xual function
-general growth and development
-mood and stress levels
Men and women alike can be affected by imbalances in insulin, steroids, growth hormones, and adrenaline.
Women may also experience imbalances in estrogen and progesterone levels, while men are more likely to experience imbalances in testosterone levels.
Common symptoms of hormonal imbalance are familiar to women as irregular menstrual cycle, chronic acne, vaginal dryness, low libido, depression, fatigue, abnormal weight gain, abnormal breast changes etc. Below is an easy treatment to get rid of hormonal imbalance.
