BRAIN, THYROID, ADRENAL, and GUT HORMONES determine our Physical State of Health AND ALSO control how we act and feel! We'd DIE without our Hormones ...
All of our Hormones are constantly communicating with each other and telling the DNA in our CELLS what to do... PLUS they are telling each OTHER what to do too.
Got High Cortisol? That leads to Low Thyroid.
Got Low Cortisol? Well that leads to Low Thyroid too!
Low Estrogen? Get ready for some sadness and irritability... because that causes Low Serotonin.
Low Progesterone? Bummer... You're facing Insomnia since now your GABA brain hormone (Gamma-aminobutyric acid) will be Low.
And that's just an appetizer of what happens! It's truly a SYMPHONY of interactions with ALL our hormones.
This has major significance for us Midlife Women! As we enter our midlife years, we're not facing just a Sex Hormone Imbalance... we're driving many other hormones and neurotransmitters out of balance as well.
That's why there are so many different TYPES of symptoms with menopause. Anxiety, Depression, Weight Gain, Hair Loss, Fatigue, Insomnia (and so forth) ALONG with the typical Hot Flashes and Night Sweats.
With so many Different Hormones from Different Systems being effected simultaneously by the decline of our Sex Hormones, we find ourselves experiencing a Full Range of Odd Symptoms that are confusing, frustrating, frightening and draining.
It's like being trapped on a Hormone Rollercoaster that won't stop. All we can do is hope that it stops... OR go to the doctor and PRAY he/she can help you.
And if you see a conventional doctor, it doesn't get any easier at this point either.
Most conventional docs aren't prepared to help us.
Some tell us it's just a part of aging and we'll have to get used to it.
Some docs offer hope by prescribing synthetic hormones that carry frightening potential side effects often worse than the symptoms of menopause.
And if you don't want synthetic hormone treatment doc will offer anti-depressants, anti-anxiety meds, and sleeping pills to treat the disturbing symptoms of menopause.
