HORMONE THERAPY OVERVIEW
The adrenal glands secrete hormones such as cortisol, estrogen, and testosterone that are essential to health, vitality and the total function of the body. The modern lifestyles of today that expose us to intense and often prolonged physical or emotional stress or chronic illness can all lead to Adrenal Fatigue, which has become a contributing factor in health conditions ranging from allergies to obesity.
The hormones secreted by the adrenal gland have anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties to help minimize allergic and negative reactions in the body, like cancer and autoimmune disorders.
These hormones affect the way carbohydrates and fats are utilized, the conversion of fats and proteins into energy, and cardiovascular and gastrointestinal function.
Therefore, proper adrenal support is essential to complete the hormonal pathway to optimal health. Which includes proper nutrition, getting plenty of sleep, regular moderate exercise, stress management, slowing down to regain a proper perspective on life and replacement of deficient hormones.
