There's no denying that the role your hormones play in your health profile can be confusing, overwhelming and very frustrating.
But, do you know how important it is to keep these hormones balanced?
Your hypothalamus/pituitary/thyroid/adrenal axis is part of your endocrine system (the collection of glands that secrete hormones directly into your circulatory system), which is responsible for the regulation of your metabolism.
Cortisol, also known as the stress hormone, can reflect poor conditions in your adrenal or pituitary gland. Having high levels of cortisol in your blood can slow down your thyroid, which in turn, affects your ovaries.
Imbalances and influences in your life directly effect what is happening to the various hormone levels in your body.
