Female Hormonal Imbalance

Cortisol, the main adrenal hormone, is made from progesterone. Every molecule of cortisol you produce in your body when you are under stress depletes your progesterone levels. Thus, the more stress you are under, the more female hormone imbalances will occur as your progesterone levels drop. PMS symptoms like cramping, sweet cravings, mood swings, and irritability will respond really well to a lab based adrenal hormone program. As we normalize cortisol levels, progesterone levels will improve. Progesterone is the pro-gestational hormone that keeps the uterine lining intact through the second half of the menstrual cycle. Peri-menopausal and menopausal symptoms like hot flashes, night sweats, memory problems, and mood swings are caused by a drop in estrogen levels. Estrogen is made from DHEA, one of the major adrenal hormones. Therefore, the more exhausted the adrenal glands become, the more low estrogen symptoms women develop as a result. If we test and correct your cortisol and DHEA levels with an adrenal stress test, your female hormone related symptoms will improve significantly.
