The Risk Factors Of Hormonal Disorder

Introduction

Hormonal diseases arise because of the imbalance of a certain chemical within the system. Hormones are essential for the normal functioning of the body, affect growth, development and energy levels. Glands forming the endocrine system secrete hormones. Hormones help in managing stress, and in balancing our sexual functions. The body can fight adequately with the bacteria and infections in case the hormones in the body are balanced.

Two chief hormones present within the body of a woman are estrogen and progesterone. Imbalance in either one of these hormones can lead to several distressing symptoms. The levels of estrogen and progesterone may vary based on the age of the woman, exercise, stress levels, nutrition, and on ovulation. Similarly in males the chief hormone is testosterone whose, imbalance can lead to severe symptoms.

    I have been browsing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    I suffer from hormonal imbalance which is very stressful and I believe I got it after a nasty gut infection which last for more than 2 years.

    Wish the medical system would offer something to treat the root cause.

    I wish to share this with everyone.
