Dr. Brody’s Natural Approach to Female Hormones
When your female hormones, estrogen, and progesterone are out of whack it can cause your system to go haywire. There needs to be a balance in these hormones so you don’t develop symptoms such as Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS), Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), hot flashes, menopause, depression, anxiety, food cravings, weight gain, infections, etc. If you are a younger woman, you most likely have a menstrual cycle. While the length of your cycle can differ between women, the first half of your cycle is dominated by estrogen while the second half of your cycle is dominated by progesterone. If there is an uneven level of either of these, it can cause the above symptoms. Women produce small amounts of testosterone as well, which can regulate sex drive and growth factors. There are many other hormones involved in women’s health including cortisol, SHBG, DHEA, etc. and these all need to be evaluated by a health professional in order to walk down the path of health.
