Have you ever experienced tender breasts and irritability before your period? What about heavy bleeding and pain with menstruation? Chances are, that at one time or another, you’ve experiences these – and other – uncomfortable symptoms associated with your cycle. We often think of these symptoms as “normal” and just par for the course when it comes to being a woman. Although common in our society, I’m here to tell you that these symptoms are not normal and a sign that hormones are out of balance.
Progesterone is warming, calming, anti-inflammatory and sleep-promoting. It’s definitely a hormone that you want on board for overall health and wellness. Yet so many women suffer from low progesterone or other hormone imbalances that impact progesterone’s benefits. Why is that and what is the root cause?
Most of the women, and men, who come to my practice, have questions or concerns about their hormones. And with good reason: hormone balance creates a healthy and well-functioning body.
Just like everything in the body, a woman’s ability to build a uterine lining, ovulate, conceive and have a healthy pregnancy has so much to do with nutrition. If you think about it, a baby is literally made from the building blocks that start out as proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals in the diet.
