In my previous post, I discussed the wide array of biological and psychological processes our hormones regulate. Like any beautiful symphony, the whole ensemble must be performing at its best to ensure optimal functioning. If even one note is out of tune, the whole band can become dysregulated and result in many unwanted aftereffects on the mind-body.
Due to powerful yet delicate nature of hormones, keeping their triggers at bay can do wonders for our overall vitality and wellness. Of all the factors that can un-sync hormonal harmony, stress is the most universal. In fact, in the long-term it can take over the whole orchestra and remove some of the key players.
This “progesterone steal” is accomplished by the stress hormone cortisol. It can lead to lower levels of this vital sex hormone, as well as others. The result is a very unsound brain and body.
Thankfully, several lifestyle and integrative techniques can help to counter stress attacks. One of my favorites is essential oils. This is because they not only tamper down cortisol, but they also balance emotional, physical, and hormonal health in eight additional ways.
With this understanding of how important each player is in our hormonal masterpiece, in my latest article and video sequel I provide an exclusive, up-close and personal biography of one of the most famous. Specifically, I give you all the juicy details of the popular hormone progesterone and its effects on overall wellness.
Topics on progesterone include:
- Its’ major claim to fame (main function)
- Who the real progesterone is (its biological structure)
- Its top billing roles (fertility and reproduction)
- All its systematic effects and accomplishments
- How it’s regulated
- What healthy levels of progesterone are
After learning from my blog and video, you’ll understand why progesterone is so essential for both sexes and why it is way too talented to be solely type-casted in pregnancy and fertility roles!
