Not many people are aware of just how important hormones are when it comes to the human body. They are a vital part of human biology and are in charge of regulating many body functions – some hormones are in charge of regulating our physical growth, while others keep our metabolism running. They are also important when it comes to the digestive, immune, reproductive, urinary, nervous, respiratory, skeletal, and cardiovascular systems.
Know About Dr. Rachel Jones:
Even a single hormone deficiency can cause a negative effect, which is why Dr. Rachel Jones is raising awareness of the importance of hormones through her newly established practice, The Hormone Clinic. She is an advocate for using BioIdentical Hormone Replacement Therapy – a completely natural and vegan friendly treatment that steers clear of synthetic mass produced HRT.
Because Dr. Rachel Jones has been a consultant psychiatrist for many years, she has encountered many patients who have suffered from mental health problems due to undiagnosed hormone imbalances. Medical professionals, at the time, were not aware of the crucial link between hormonal balance and the mental well-being of a person.
About The Hormone Clinic:
The Hormone Clinic was created for this very purpose, to help people identify the true cause of their mental health problems. There are several reasons that can lead to a hormonal imbalance such as stress, age, diet, medications, environment, and genetics.
Even the slightest hormonal imbalance can cause a shift in a person’s mental or physical state of being. Oestrogen, one of the major hormones, plays a significant role in the development of a female body from puberty to menopause. A lack of Oestrogen in a female may lead to a delay in puberty or prevent sexual development. It can cause other issues as well such as mood swings, depression, sleep issues, headaches, and irregular menstrual cycles.
Similarly, Progesterone is another hormone the lack of which can cause heavy and painful periods, sleep disturbances, bloating, anxiety and depression.
Despite being known as a male hormone, Testosterone is just as important to a female body as it is to a male body. For men, a low level of this hormone can affect their sleep, mood, the size of their testicles, fatigue, and reduced muscle mass. In both men and women, it can lead to lower bone mass and a reduced sex drive.
Pregnenolone, also known as the ‘mother hormone’, is produced in the adrenal gland. If the production of this hormone declines, it can impede a person’s day-to-day functioning. Decreased brain retention and memory is also a symptom of a lack of Pregnenolone.
Sleep hormone is another name for Melatonin, as it helps relax the muscles. It provides a sense of peace to allow the body to rest. Melatonin deficiency causes excessive daytime sleepiness, nocturnal awakening, and sleep-wake cycle disorders.
Hormonal imbalance can cause disruption in a person’s life and lead to multiple difficulties in the future. Seek advice and consider your options. It may include a change in lifestyle such as eating healthy, exercising regularly, and keeping your stress triggers in check. It is up to the doctor to decide if the patient requires any further assistance or Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy.
