There is lots of talk about hormones and how if they are unbalanced that they need to be balanced and how it causes weight gain, or anxiety or pre-menopause, etc. etc. etc. There are also a lot of drugs being pushed on people to fix it including “bio-identical” hormones.
We’re uncertain how you can really get a bio-identical hormone without your body producing it. And doubly puzzling as to why you would take this when you can get your body to produce the correct hormones. If you find out what is going on, you can correct it by supporting the gland that needs help.
Hormones are the communication system of the body regarding getting something done. They are the messengers. Yes, the nerves are there, but it is the hormones that get the body to do what you need it to do.
You see a tiger – you get the thought that there is a tiger in front of you. You translate that into an emotion – fear? anxiety? maybe even excitement if you are a big game hunter. That emotion affects the hormones which then get the body to do what it needs to do. In our example, we need to fight the tiger or run like the dickens – in other words, take flight. The glands produce adrenaline and other hormones in order to put that plan into action. We fight and that takes effort of muscles, etc. Or maybe take flight. That is the way the body works, the glands send the messages and the body responds.
Now what happens if the body doesn’t quite produce enough of a hormone, or it produces too much of a hormone or the hormones are not in balance to be able to work their best?
Do you get the picture?
