CREATING HORMONAL HARMONY - THE COMPLEXITY OF FEMALE HORMONES



From puberty to periods, to menopause – hormones can pose a challenge for many women throughout their lives. You may be all too familiar with symptoms such as painful, heavy or irregular periods, premenstrual mood swings and bloating, hot flushes... and the list goes on. Female hormonal conditions are complex and frequently frustrating for women.


While hormonal fluctuations have traditionally been blamed, there is more to this story - many other factors also affect the subtle balance required for optimal hormonal harmony.


RIDING THE HORMONAL ROLLER COASTER?

Do you feel you have no control over the ups and downs of hormonal change you ride through each month? Your symptoms may be related to one of these conditions: Premenstrual syndrome (PMS): includes symptoms of breast tenderness, migraines and mood changes prior to your period. PMS may be linked to lowered progesterone levels and often made worse by stress.


ENDOMETRIOSIS AND FIBROIDS


Women with these conditions often experience heavy, painful periods, pain throughout the month, bloating, and sometimes weight gain.


POLYCYSTIC OVARIAN SYNDROME (PCOS): missing periods, facial hair growth, sugar cravings, weight gain and difficulty conceiving are commonly experienced, due to higher than normal testosterone and lower progesterone levels.


MENOPAUSE: many women suffer from hot flushes, night sweats, and anxiety, as their periods come to a stop.


MUSICIANS DISTORT THE MELODY

While different conditions are influenced by subtle changes in hormone levels, there are many other factors that also play a role. Likened to musicians in the orchestra playing out of tune, some of these come from your body - such as inflammation (e.g. from joint pain or digestive imbalance), being overweight, and feeling stressed.


The environment you live in can also play havoc with hormones. Toxins are virtually unavoidable and many, such as bisphenyl-A or ‘BPA’ (found in plastics, the lining of tins, and even on shopping dockets) have hormone-like effects and may negatively affect your hormonal balance.

"Had a beautiful facial and lash tint today. I was so relaxed at the end I didn’t think I would be able to drive home. Highly recommend."

- Melanie

I was ready to give this place five stars after my first massage and have now gone back numerous times for brows, lashes and tan. Loved it every time and can’t recommend them enough! All of the therapists are lovely, especially Emily who went out of her way to make sure I was happy with my treatment! "
