Estrogen is the major female sex hormone (though men have it, too). When a woman doesn’t have enough of it, it impacts her libido, immune system, mental health and heart health. During menopause, estrogen production naturally falls off. This leads to symptoms such as hot flashes, forgetfulness, mood swings, vaginal dryness and depression. Estrogen replacement can also normalize the ups and downs of menopause and help women regain a sense of wellbeing.
Progesterone can support GABA, the brain’s relaxation neurotransmitter. Many think of progesterone as the “feel-good hormone.” When progesterone is low, women can experience anxiety and depression, sleep difficulty and bone loss. Progesterone replacement can be incredibly helpful for women who have problems that get worse with their menstrual cycle.
Testosterone in men is responsible for sex drive, muscle mass, bone density and an overall sense of contentment. Andropause, similar to menopause, is the gradual decrease of testosterone production as men get older. In addition, diminished testosterone has been connected to chronic pain secondary to
its anti-inflammatory properties. In women, testosterone helps protect the nervous system, increases libido, and diminishes depression.
The thyroid gland drives the production of many neurotransmitters that run the brain. If your thyroid is low, you feel sluggish, mentally foggy and depressed; if it’s high, you feel anxious, jittery and irritable. Experts conservatively estimate that one-third of all depressions are directly related to thyroid imbalance. Low thyroid function remains one of the most under-diagnosed medical conditions in the country and proper evaluation and treatment of this condition is vital to both mental and physical health.
Dehydroepiandrosterone (DHEA) is a precursor hormone to the sex hormones, meaning testosterone, estrogen and progesterone are all converted from DHEA. Stress can take a toll on DHEA levels, which when low have been linked to weight gain, depression and chronic pain. Conversely, studies show that higher levels of DHEA as you age are associated with longevity.
