What is Women's Hormone Problems?
Of the 20 million women in the United States who are currently candidates for hormone replacement therapy, only about 40 percent of them seem willing to take conventional recommended prescriptions. Among these women, the five-year compliance is a mere 25 percent.
Why such a poor response? Patient concerns include fear of breast and endometrial cancer, frustration with bleeding or PMS-like symptoms, cost of medicines, cost of physician and laboratory monitoring, discomfort associated with endometrial biopsy and/or mammography, confusion, lack of information, fear of "putting chemicals" into the body, numerous associated side effects, and general distrust of the largely male-dominated medical community.
What is hormone banlancing mechanism in a woman's body?
Hormonal system is a complicated mechanism that regulates the way your body functions. Food, stress, even day schedule can affect this system and, by that, the way you look and feel. here as following only briefly cover estrogen and progesterone-two hormones whose balance is so important in a woman's body.
What is Estrogen?What is Progesterone then?
What is Estrogen?Estrogen is a name for a group of hormones that take part in regulating woman's reproductive system. It is produced by ovaries. As soon as an ovary releases an egg, it starts making estrogen to prepare (thicken) the inner lining of the uterus for pregnancy.
What is Progesterone then?Progesterone is a hormone that is produced by the follicle after ovulation. It keeps the inner lining of uterus ready to receive a fertilized ovum, and later provides the nurturing for the development of the embryo. If the egg was not fertilized, progesterone encourages the uterus to shed the lining, and the result is menstruation flow.
So, as you know, if the body lacks estrogen, it uses progesterone to produce more estrogen. On the other hand, progesterone counteracts the effect of estrogen. So, The key is the balance of these two hormones.Too much of either one can cause health problems.This means the hormone banlancing mechanism of a woman's body.
Most women experience lack of progesterone,but not estrogen. In addition to estrogen made by the body, we receive doses of estrogen with meats and dairy(farm animals are given this hormone to gain more weight).Symptoms of estrogen dominance are irregular menstrual flow,hot flashes,cramping,mood swings,migraines-to name a few.Excess estrogen is also associated with endometrial problems, including endometrial cancer.Sufficient levels of progesterone can prevent these problems.Interesting enough,in one study patients who were given natural progesterone showed an increase in bone density, which means that progesterone prevents and even reverses osteoporosis.
Natural progesterone supplements are used to balance estrogen.Natural progesterone has a structure similar to that of human progesterone and is made form plant fats;one of such fats is diosgenin.Wild Yam is reach in diosgenin,so it became the most popular source of natural progesterone.
However,it is a common mistake to think that Wild Yam constituents are converted into progesterone by a human body.It does not happen.Progesterone can be derived from a Wild Yam plant,but only in a lab.So why do people still find Wild Yam creams helpful?
Diosgenin found in Wild Yam is a substitution of phytoestrogen,and it closely resembles human progesterone.Due to this similarity and substitution, body reacts to it as if it were progesterone.
Because they are not the same as human hormones,phytoestrogens are far less potent which results in slower effect but safer use.Phytoestrogens do not cause any side effects.Unlike estrogen which,when in excess, is associated with endometrial cancer, phytoestrogens do not evoke cell growth.
