STRESS: A fuzzy term commonly used to describe different types of strain or tension. Reports indicate that 75%-90% of all doctor visits relate to this issue.
Stress is an overused general word. Do you know what’s causing your stress? If the goal is to feel less stress- how can you resolve what’s causing your stress it if you don’t identify what is making you feel stressed.
- XENOESTROGENS: Man-made and synthetic chemical compounds linked to early puberty and reproductive disorders; these compounds mimic estrogen – a natural hormone (#6). Research indicates that these foreign types of chemicals accumulate in the body over time.
- THYROID: Regulates the release and distribution of hormones; affects your mood, metabolism, reproduction, menstrual cycle, peri-menopause, and menopause.
- PROGESTERONE: The balancer hormone that helps relax the muscles of the uterus, maintain a healthy pregnancy and counters the powerful affects of estrogen- #6 . Kicks in during the second half of a woman’s cycle.
- CORTISOL: Produced in the adrenal glands and is often triggered by too much of #1-STRESS. Constant demand for this “fight or flight” hormone can cause less amounts of progesterone..
- ESTROGEN: An important group of hormones that affects the reproductive organs, heart and blood vessels, brain, skin, hair and bones. Too little will cause a woman to possibly miss her period or contribute to osteoporosis in older women; too much over time can cause serious health issues.
- TESTOSTERONE: The “Let’s Get It On” hormone. Influences sex drive, muscle and bone density, skin suppleness and assertiveness. Helps with the production of estrogen – #6.
- PITUITARY: Known as the “master” gland; secretes the follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) that helps the ovaries select an egg and kicks off the luteinizing hormone (LH) to release an egg from an ovary to journey to the uterus.
- PMS: Estimates indicate that at least 85% of women have at least one symptom of this menstrual issue.
- BALANCE: A state of physical, emotional and spiritual equilibrium.
