Struggling with Hormonal Imbalances?

Suffering from PMS, hot flashes, night sweats, loss of libido?

Afraid of hormone replacement? Do you want to get off of them?

Hot flashes, night sweats, loss if libido and PMS are a result of hormonal imbalances caused by stress and poor diet. Lack of progesterone or low progesterone is a major reason for these and many other health issues including infertility, heart disease and osteoporosis. 

Hormone Replacement whether synthetic or bio-identical does NOT fix the problem.  They help with the imbalance – but at what expense?  Wouldn’t it be wiser and healthier to address the cause of the imbalance as opposed to ingesting hormones that may create other problems.

The Stress Connection…

Stress is a huge underlying factor for hormonal imbalances for one simple reason.  The adrenal glands will steal progesterone in order to make cortisol, one of our primary stress hormones.  The adrenals can NOT make cortisol without progesterone.  So the more cortisol the adrenals have to make in order to keep us with all the stress in your life…the less progesterone will be available to balance estrogen and testosterone, as well as, run the other many functions that are needed by progesterone.  This starts that imbalance.

As the graphic points out.the adrenal glands will first take cholesterol and make pregnenolone, the mother of all hormones.

From there the adrenals will either make cortisol or DHEA, testosterone and estrogen.  If there is constant or prolonged stress the adrenals will direct as much of its available pregnenolone and progesterone to keep making cortisol and adrenaline.  The body senses that it is in that “fight or flight” mode and realizes it is more important to run and survive than it is to have a baby, because that is one of progesterone’s primary functions -- to promote gestation!

When we manage the stress in our life the adrenal glands should have enough resource to produce hormones for each pathway.  But when stress is constant, it has a priority and will steal all it needs to make cortisol and adrenaline.  This causes a decrease production of the other necessary hormones DHEA, estrogen, testosterone and progesterone. 

Low levels of progesterone due to stress causes the hormonal imbalance and leads to hot flashes, night sweats, loss of libido and infertility.

First things first…

Cortisol and adrenaline, as well as, insulin are primary hormones.  The body can NOT survive without them.  Which is why the body will do all it can to make adequate levels of each hormone.  Estrogen, progesterone and testosterone are secondary hormones.  We can survive with little or none of these hormones.  We might not be the happiest person, but we won’t die without them.

The point is that the more stress in our life, the greater the demand for more cortisol and adrenaline throws off your reproductive hormones and cycle.  DHEA is also known as the fountain of youth.  Research shows that people with higher levels of DHEA are healthier and have less health complaints.  DHEA helps burn fat, builds lean muscle tissue, balances blood sugar levels, supports immune function and enhances mental concentration and focus.  DHEA is also needed to make our sex hormones for both men and women.  (click to learn how to measure DHEA and cortisol levels and why they are important in determining adrenal status)

This is very important especially for women who are approaching menopause because at menopause the ovaries cease functioning and the responsibility of producing estrogen, progesterone, testosterone and DHEA falls upon the adrenal glands.  If the adrenal glands are already fatigued and depleted, and you ask them to pickup the extra work that the ovaries used to do...they might NOT be able to do it and that is why so many women struggle with hot flashes, night sweats, and difficulty sleeping.

This also explains how loss of libido occurs.  The constant production of cortisol and adrenaline reduces the amount of DHEA that can be produced.  DHEA is converted into testosterone and than estrogen, for both men and women.  Less DHEA being produced by the adrenals due to adrenal fatigue and stress, will affect how much testosterone is produced.  Testosterone is needed for sexual arousal and muscle tissue growth.  Low testosterone and loss of libido for both men and women is a result of stress, which affects our hormones.

The same problem occurs for women struggling with fertility.  A portion of their progesterone is being used to make cortisol.  Lack of progesterone or low progesterone is the number one reason for infertility and miscarriages.  Again, it is all stress related.

The Solution…

Support those exhausted and depleted adrenal glands.  As we said, cortisol and adrenaline are primary hormones.  The more stress in our life -- it doesn’t matter if the stress is mental, physical or dietary (blood sugar imbalances or digestive difficulties) -- you need to begin to support those exhausted adrenal glands with Adrenal Fuel.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Fats are needed to make your hormones and chemical brain messengers.  If you are on a low fat diet, eating too many saturated fats or trans fat… you may not be consuming enough of the good fats (fish oils, omega-3) to produce your hormones.

Adrenal-Fuel helps balance those hormones, while nourishing those exhausted adrenal glands so you can overcome those symptoms. Add Sea Energy to speed up your recovery (Fish oils, the omega 3 fatty acids are needed to make our reproductive hormones that may be missing from your diet).
