Our body’s are regulated every second of the day by mini messenger’s called hormones. They are sent out from glands in minute amounts, orchestrated by the pituitary and hypothalamus glands based at the bottom of the brain at the base of your neck.
The delicate interplay of these hormones from the adrenal glands, uterus, and ovaries, influence mood, energy, fertility and immunity. 
For a large number of women, premenstrual tension changes their character, causing them to feel “out of sorts”, making life miserable and unbearable. Anxiety, crying spells, sugar cravings, bloating and irritability are but a few symptoms of hormone imbalance. Then there is the menopause which is a result of falling oestrogen levels, causing hot flushes and other symptoms, alternatively women can suffer from too much oestrogen, resulting in ovarian cysts and endometriosis.
Do men suffer from the menopause too?
Vitality and libido are also regulated by hormones and men are also affected, especially when under stress due to the cortical pathway being increased to the expense of testosterone. This affects drive and sexual desire in both men and women.
The thyroid is a very sensitive gland to stress and environmental toxicity causing hormone imbalance which causes fatigue and weight gain, common again in women who are in a phase of sex hormone changes such as pregnancy or menopause.
Nutritional causes of imbalances include too much stress, caffeine, sugar, salt and not enough “good” fats, certain minerals such as magnesium and vitamins such as the B vitamins, especially B6.
Hormone imbalances can also be affected by what is happening in your gut. The bad bacteria, which can build up, can affect the action of hormones in the tissues, especially insulin, causing insulin resistance. This causes a build up of insulin and an imbalance.
Overall, hormone imbalance can be seen as a cycle of events;
but reacts very positively with correct nutritional intervention.
