DON'T OVERLOOK FEMALE HORMONE IMBALANCE

2/29/2024 9:12:56 AM

Every woman desires to possess youthful beauty and vitality. Therefore, female hormones are crucial not only in shaping gender, skin, and women's figures but also in maintaining health and psychological balance. However, as time goes by, the decline of these hormones can lead to negative effects on women's physiology and health. 

What are the consequences of female hormone imbalance? 

According to research, up to 80% of women will experience a hormonal imbalance, which can occur naturally or be influenced by external factors in the environment. 

Natural hormonal imbalances in women typically occur in three stages: puberty, perimenopause, and menopause. They are often caused by factors such as prolonged stress, unhealthy eating habits, or reproductive organ-related illnesses. 

Perhaps women already understand the importance of these hormones. Therefore, don't ignore when the body shows signs of hormonal decline, as it can lead to serious health repercussions. 

Wrinkles, Dark Spots 

Decreased levels of estrogen in women lead to dark spots and deterioration of the skin. This significantly affects collagen synthesis, causing darkening of the skin, appearance of freckles, dryness, and wrinkles. 

Weight Gain 

It's easy to accumulate fat in the abdomen, buttocks, and sagging breasts, leading to a loss of the slim and attractive appearance. 

Dryness, Low Libido 

Decreased libido can lead to dryness in women, resulting in "indifference" in relationships and negatively impacting sexual life. 

Menstrual Disorders 

Irregular menstruation, accompanied by menstrual pain and excessive bleeding. Decreased ovarian function leads to unstable uterine activity. 

Hot Flashes and Excessive Sweating 

This is a common phenomenon in women with low estrogen levels. It causes the body to heat up, especially in the upper body, gradually spreading to the neck and face, affecting sleep, frequent urination at night, night sweats, and fluctuating body temperature. 

Frequent Insomnia 

Insomnia is a sign of progesterone deficiency in women. This hormone helps the body feel comfortable and maintain long sleep. However, if the progesterone level is too low or the endocrine system is low, the body will feel restless and have difficulty falling into deep sleep. 

Headaches, Fatigue 

Women often feel anxious, worried, fast heartbeat, tense mind, or sadness... Their body always feels tired even when doing nothing or when their health is deteriorating. These factors will destabilize their mental state, often leading to headaches and vestibular disorders, disrupting their lives. 

Increased Risk of Diseases 

Hormonal deficiencies also seriously affect health. Low insulin levels in the body lead to diabetes, causing an imbalance in blood sugar levels; low DHEA hormone causes depression, stress; increased or decreased cortisol hormone levels due to chronic anxiety and stress. 

How to Determine Decreased Estrogen Levels? 

Typically, doctors begin diagnosing estrogen deficiency by: 

  • Conducting a general health examination 

  • Reviewing medical history 

  • Evaluating symptoms, including those related to thyroid disorders 

Additionally, to identify the cause of hormonal decline, doctors may request blood tests to check estrogen levels. Furthermore, they may conduct additional tests to rule out health issues with symptoms like those of estrogen deficiency. 

Nutrition Helps Balance Female Hormones 

A proper diet not only aids in maintaining an ideal weight and preventing certain fundamental diseases but also sustains the balance of hormones. Here are some points to consider regarding nutrition: 

  • Healthy Fats: Consuming fats from sources like olive oil, avocado oil can stabilize the production of certain hormones related to satiety and metabolism, aiding in maintaining a stable weight. 

  • Fiber: Fiber, abundant in green vegetables, plays a crucial role in gut health and supports insulin regulation, the primary cause of diabetes. 

  • Omega-3 Fatty Acids: Omega-3 fats, found in fish such as salmon, can enhance cardiovascular and digestive health, as well as benefit the brain and central nervous system. 

  • Green Tea: Green tea contains antioxidants and compounds that can boost metabolism, reduce cortisol secretion, a hormone increased during stress, and mitigate inflammation and oxidation in the body. 

  • Limiting Sugar: Reducing sugar intake in the diet can help stabilize insulin levels, preventing hormonal imbalances and potential complications. 

Hormonal imbalances can lead to various serious complications; therefore, maintaining a healthy lifestyle and balanced diet are crucial. Hopefully, this information will help you understand more about hormonal imbalance and how to maintain hormonal balance for your health.
