Hormones travel through your blood stream carrying chemical messages to tissues and organs, telling them what to do. They are made by the endocrine glands which include the pituitary, pineal, thymus, thyroid and adrenal glands and the pancreas. Men’s hormones are produced in the testes and women’s in the ovaries. Hormones work slowly but steadily and affect growth and development, reproduction, sexual function, mood and metabolism.
They can also influence how the immune system works and modify a person’s behaviour. Hormones need to be balanced. Too much or too little can cause distinct changes that affect your entire body. Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that can affect hormone balance. They can interfere with hormones that are on their way to binding with their receptors, which can wreak havoc and alter the development in an embryo or change how they should function in an adult body.
Estrogen dominance is a common hormonal imbalance that can occur in women. It is characterized by excess estrogen and low progesterone in the body. Common female estrogen dominant conditions include PMS, endometriosis, ovarian cysts, uterine fibroids, cystic breasts, heavy periods, hormonal acne and severe menopausal symptoms among others.
