I Didn’t Know That (IDKT) …

hormones1…there are 8 major hormones that should be tested for when having hormone levels test. Here is the low down:

DHEA is a hormone produced by the adrenal glands that your body uses for the production of testosterone and estrogen (and other hormones). DHEA can help prevent osteoporosis, improve adrenal failure issues, improve sexual function in men and women, and can alleviate depression. Although it is sold over the counter as a vitamin or nutritional supplement, it is not a nutrient and is usually manufactured through a synthetic chemical process. DHEA should only be administered by a doctor that understands hormones and hormone balancing.

Estradiol is considered the problematic

What is Progesterone – Now you know!

Posted in Hormones on 04.09.11


Progesterone is a major female hormone, an androgen that is very calming.  Progesterone is important for healthy HDL levels and all organ system functions including cardio vascular and brain, skin, immunity, fertility and libido.  Most women today are deficient and/or are out of balance in comparison to what their estrogen levels are which can lead to other complications.  Progesterone should only be administered by a doctor that understands hormone balancing and how progesterone relates to estrogen.  Many times estrogen and progesterone are prescribed together when actually what is needed is the detoxification of excess estrogen and the administering of some progesterone is lower doses to bring the body back into balance.
