Hormone Balancing Q & A

What is the Role of Hormones in the Body?

Hormones play important roles within the body. They trigger numerous reactions that allow for metabolic processes to take place. A good example of this is the production of insulin. Insulin is a hormone that is produced by the pancreas. It controls how the body uses the glucose that travels through the blood stream. In cases where not enough insulin is produced or the body is resistant to insulin, diabetes occurs. For many, the condition can be treated through the diet, but for others, insulin must be administered on a regular basis to prevent diabetic coma or shock.

Is Hormone Replacement Therapy Effective?

Another type of hormone imbalance occurs in women who are experiencing menopause. As a woman ages, the production of estrogen slows down dramatically. This can result in a multitude of symptoms including headaches, night sweats, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, and irritability. HRT, or hormone replacement therapy, is used to help re-introduce the appropriate levels of estrogen and progesterone that will bring the body back into balance and alleviate the majority of the symptoms. Men who have had testicular cancer can also have a similar problem as they gradually produce less testosterone. A type of hormone replacement therapy is used in this instance as well.

What Types of Hormones are in the Body?

There are many types of hormones within the body. Growth hormones, for example, are produced by the pituitary gland and are what the body uses to stimulate or stop physical growth. There are also hormones that affect how much energy has as well as how hungry they are. Hormone balancing helps to make sure the right amount of hormones are produced at the right times to keep the body in balance. This state of balance is known as homeostasis and once it is achieved, the body is considered to be in good health.
