Mood Swings

Overcome Mood Swings with Bio-Identical Hormone Therapy

Mood SwingsMood swings and hormone imbalance are very often related. Especially in women. Any man knows there is no good way to suggest to his beloved that her hormones might be out of balance and walk away from that conversation under his own power. It’s a, shall we say, risky subject?

Ladies, you need to recognize this and take the lead in your hormone health. You truly owe it to yourself and the relationships you treasure. The key is the balance between the female hormones estrogen and progesterone. The emotional roller-coaster can be dramatic and disturbing.

In her book “The Sexy Years”, Suzanne Somers entitles one of her chapters, “I’m Out of Estrogen, and I Have a Gun!”

The yin and yang of hormonal harmony

Estrogen is known as the female hormone; however, too much of it can make you edgy and irritable. We call this “estrogen dominance” and it means you have too much estrogen and not enough progesterone. These hormones act in concert with one another – the yin and yang of hormonal harmony, if you will.

Proper balance is critical. An imbalance can lead to mood swings, severe menstrual problems, and insomnia. And sometimes even divorce! We have seen more than one couple that told us this was the final stop before the divorce lawyer. We laugh sometimes, but these forces are truly not funny when they destroy relationships and splinter families.

Progesterone is the mood leveler and does wonders for women that are prone to anxiety and/or panic attacks. If your mood swings worsen just prior to the beginning of your menstrual period, or at the time of ovulation, have your progesterone levels checked. Your family will love you for it. It also does wonders for sleep.
