Did you know that your health could be affected if your hormone is out of balance? The signs: If you are feeling out of whack, lacking energy, low on libido, feeling weak, have brittle bones, experience irregular period cycle or having difficulty falling pregnant, then chances are your hormones are to blame. Hormones are natural occurring chemicals in our bodies that helps regulate not only our fertility, but also our general health and wellbeing.
For women, oestrogen is important for general health, wellbeing and bone strength. However, too much of it and you will experience excess bleeding during your cycle, whilst too little and you will lose bone strength and risk osteoporosis, upsetting your hormonal cycle and reducing your chances of falling pregnant. Progesterone is a female sex hormone produced by the ovaries and the adrenal glands. It is extremely important for women’s health, and it plays a crucial role in the female reproductive system including the menstrual cycle and fertility, as well as the development of the foetus and the maintenance of pregnancy.
An imbalance of progesterone levels may cause infertility, an increased risk of miscarriage, increased PMS symptoms, depression, thyroid dysfunction, fibrocystic breasts, weight gain and irregular menstrual cycle. Oestrogen and progesterone needs to be available and peak at the right time during the cycle to enable the thickening of the uterus lining and maturing of the follicles in preparation for a healthy pregnancy. Maintaining the right female hormonal balance means taking time to address key factors including your diet and nutrition intake and good management of stress. Acupuncture and herbal medicine are natural ways you can help balance your hormones.

Stress, poor nutrition and excess weight (especially stored fat around the waist), poor sleep, high blood sugar level will reduce a man’s testosterone level and as such will impact his strength, bone density and sex drive.
