Natural Hormonal Health
Your natural hormonal health & balance is vital to your overall wellbeing. Hormones are biochemical molecules with multiple functions in your body. You can simply think of them as the messengers that communicate and regulate different tasks in your body. They are very neatly inter-related and work congruently to make a precise network named “Endocrine System”. This meticulous inter-relation explains why the dysregulation of only one hormone affects whole the system.
How naturopathy helps with hormonal health?
You might be familiar with name of some of the hormones like insulin secreted from pancreas, thyroid hormone from thyroid, estrogen, progesterone from ovaries , testosterone from testis, cortisol from adrenal and many more. Just to make it more complicated, there are other master hormones and their roles are even more exciting and complicated that influence every aspect of your life, including your diurnal variation and your overall behaviour.
Deficiency or excess of each of these hormones have organ specific signs and symptoms in addition to whole the endocrine system dysregulation signs.
