All the processes that go on in your body are controlled by hormones through the invisible web they create between your body, brain, and cells. The fact that you have good skin, healthy metabolism, and probably don’t gain weight if you keep a healthy lifestyle, sleep well and feel full of energy, then thank your hormones for a great and balanced job.
The hormone imbalance is a common case for women because of perimenopause and menopause. The treatment that is spoken about a lot is the bioidentical hormone replacement.
So an imbalance occurs when there is too much or too little of a hormone and here are the common symptoms to identify that:
Serotonin is the hormone of happiness and is a monoamine neurotransmitter. The female sex hormone estrogen has an effect on neurotransmitters in the brain. When that hormone is imbalanced, especially during the premenstrual syndrome (PMS) or during perimenopause (the phase before periods stop completely) and the menopause, you may feel depressed and anxious.
The solution may be the use of natural products that contain estrogen.
- Cruciferous vegetables
- Flax Seeds
- Sesame Seeds
- Soybeans and edamame Hummus
- Dried Fruit
Low Sex Drive
Hormones control your libido and promote vaginal moisture and lubrication. The level of estrogen and testosterone falls during the perimenopause and menopause. Other menopausal symptoms such as fatigue, low mood, and night sweats can also have an impact on your sex life.
Unexplained Weight Gain
A number of hormone-related conditions can be the reason for weight gain. The reason for it is the thyroid hormone which is responsible for a good metabolism. In case of an imbalance gland doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormone.
The first sign of low levels of estrogen and progesterone combined with high levels of androgen hormone can be acne. This kind of hormone imbalance syndrome women may face during pregnancy or the menopause.
The symptoms are not limited to and include:
- Fertility problems
- Insomnia and poor-quality sleep
- Weak bones
- Vaginal dryness
The main reason for all the mentioned cases is an imbalance in the production of estrogen and progesterone. The first and the most important thing is to visit a doctor and only after that you may start the treatment. It can be the usage of natural products combined with bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.
What is the difference between hormone replacement therapy and bioidentical hormone replacement therapy?
The traditional hormone replacement is made from pregnant animal mares` urine and they are synthetic, as the Premarin is not bioidentical, at least not to human estrogen. There is a big risk of breast cancer, heart disease, blood clots, weight gain, etc. While the Bioidentical hormones are made from plants identical in molecular structure with the hormones that the body produces naturally.
Benefits of the bioidentical hormone replacement therapy:
- Identical to your body hormones
- Better sleep and mood
- Sex drive
- Thicker hair growth, healthier skin and bones
- Fewer hot flashes and night sweats
- More energy
- Better mental clarity

Do not find the treatment in google, but talk to professionals. Everything is easier when you take steps prior. Enjoy your life and be responsible.
