Understanding your Hormones

Hormones are powerful chemical messengers within the body that regulate its day-to-day functions in both women and men. These include mental and physical wellbeing, sleep patterns and sex drive.

As we age our hormone levels naturally decrease. This results in unwanted symptoms that can lead to reduced quality of life and accelerate the aging process. 

Whilst men experience decreases in certain hormones like testosterone as they age, women go through menopause which is when periods stop at around 45-55 years old. The menopause creates crashes in testosterone, progesterone and oestrogen levels which if left untreated leads to symptoms and reduction of quality of life. 

In order to better understand the role that specific hormones play in your body see the icons below.

Testosterone

Testosterone stimulates the body to develop and maintain healthy muscles, bones and stamina. Testosterone increases libido and gives you an increased feeling of security, positivity and stability.

Low testosterone has also been associated with certain medical conditions like high cholesterol, altered blood pressure, heart disease and diabetes.

Oestrogen
Oestrogen creates femininity, protects the body against cardiovascular disease and helps maintain healthy bones and a healthy mind. Oestrogen contributes to healthy and youthful skin, vaginal lubrication, while preventing hot flushes and night sweats.

Oestrogen replacement can maintain vaginal and urethral function and slow the progression of osteoporosis. It can also improve sleep, decrease pain, reduce night sweats, improve libido and overall wellbeing including a more youthful appearance.
Progesterone
Progesterone stimulates and regulates various functions within the body. It counterbalances oestrogen and offers protection from cancer of the uterus. It is effective in the treatment of irregular menstruation, while improving sleep quality and decreasing anxiety.
DHEA
DHEA is produced by the adrenal glands and is a precursor for producing both testosterone and oestrogen. It is the most abundant hormone in the human body. It is reduced by 2% per year from the age of 25 years. DHEA is thought to help prevent obesity, diabetes, cancer, heart disease and support stimulation of the immune system.
Vitamin D
Vitamin D is in fact classed as a hormone. It is an essential vitamin that is important for bone formation in all age groups. It also maintains various other cellular processes including the immune system, thyroid regulation and insulin production.
Thyroxine
Thyroid hormones work by stimulating metabolism which leads to an increase in energy and metabolic rate. The function of other glands and organs rely on the availability of thyroid hormones within the blood.

Low levels of thyroid hormones i.e., Hypothyroidism has been linked to symptoms which include fatigue, high cholesterol, feeling cold all the time and inability to lose weight. It is also linked to depression and chronic pain.
