All About Hormones

Understanding your hormonal health begins with a knowledge of the different hormones in your body. There are a number of key hormones to take into consideration, which work in unison to create a fully balanced hormonal profile. If one or more of these hormones become unbalanced it can lead to a variety of symptoms and conditions, which may then need to be addressed using bio-identical hormone replacement therapy.

Estrogen

Estrogens are responsible for many of your body’s functions, regulating a woman’s journey through puberty, fertility and menopause.

Find out all about estrogens here.

Testosterone

Testosterone is a sex hormone and an anabolic steroid, and although it is typically considered to be a male hormone, it is also essential for healthy hormone balance in women.

Progesterone

Progesterone is a hormone produced in women during the second half/luteal phase of the menstrual cycle and also by the placenta during pregnancy.

DHEA

DHEA is the most abundant steroid hormone in your body and is produced by the adrenals glands, with the ovaries and testes producing smaller amounts. It is a major precursor to stronger androgens such as testosterone and androstenedione and the female hormone estrogen.
