Cortisol is an important Adrenal stress hormone. If you have been
exposed to long periods of stress it can exhaust your adrenals and
cause you to gain weight around the mid section.
DHEA is also an Adrenal Hormone which can also be affected by stress,
but it governs energy, and sex hormones. If you are low in your sex
drive this is one hormone to have tested. the Adrenal
Stress Profile can determine your levels.
Hormones are important for metabolism
and energy. I can't tell you how
many women come to me feeling tired,
overweight and have all the signs
and symptoms of an under active
thyroid, only to tell me that their
doctor tested their thyroid and
according the the doctor it was
normal. Unfortunately most doctors
only test TSH and T4. I do a Comprehensive
Thyroid Test. that most often reflects that these
people do have a slow thyroid that was over looked!
there are the sex hormones: Estrogens-three
of them, Progesterone, and Testosterone.
These hormones can also be affected
by stress and start to decline on
your late 30's and 40's. This is
called peri-menopause. At this stage
you have irregular periods and some
mild to severe symptoms such as insomnia,
mood swings and hot flashes which
will get more severe if unsupported
at this stage. It is crucial that
you are nutritionally supported,
at this stage in your life so you
can sail through menopause without
severe symptoms. And Men - yes there
is male menopause called Andropause.
There are specific tests for PMS
vs menopause. The Female
Hormone Profile helps determine ability to get pregnant
if you are entering peri-menopaus where as the Womens Hormone Assessment is more for menopausal women. However, the Estrogen Metabolism Assessment helps
determine if you are having difficulty
processing and breaking down the
bad estrogens that cause cancer.
It is therefore a great risk assessment
if cancer runs in the family!
