How I Balance Hormones with Essential Oils
By Cheryl Luttrull
*Hormonal imbalances can Affect ANYONE at ANY AGE!!!!*
Hormonal balance is vital to a healthy, cancer-free mind and body!
Most people associate hormone imbalance with older age but if you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed below it would not hurt to have your hormone levels checked. Please make sure to find someone that does not use outdated or dangerous hormone replacement therapy as to not put you more at risk! DO YOUR HOMEWORK!
The symptoms of hormone imbalance may include:
Fatigue, Depression, Dizziness, Difficulty concentrating, Headaches, Low Libido, Weight Loss, Weight Gain, Hair Loss, Night Sweats, Skin Problems and much more.
I first started using essential oils for respiratory support and weight management but I found that in balancing my hormone levels many of my other health concerns fell into place. Estrogen, Progesterone and Testosterone all need to be in balance. This does not always mean in the “normal range” averages…BUT… this means what YOU as an individual need at this time in YOUR life! GET A COMPLETE HORMONE BLOOD WORK UP…find a health care provider that understands this!
Causes of hormone imbalances other than Puberty, Perimenopause and Menopause:
Child bearing years, Stress, Under-Eating, Over-Eating, Surgeries, Toxins, Medications, Wrong Foods and much more!
According to the North American Menopause society, women have significantly lower levels of testosterone than men (about 1/10th), testosterone still plays an important role in the female body. Total and free testosterone levels decline with age, for example women in their 40s have half the circulating levels than women in their 20s. Estrogen and Progesterone levels are important to check but Testosterone is also very important. This means asking for a total testosterone as well as a free testosterone blood test! I say this because many doctors only check the total! We need balance in all three hormones. Testosterone therapy improves well-being, mood, and sexual function. Progesterone is another much needed hormone that is essential for fertility and for sustaining a pregnancy. Progesterone means “promoting gestation.” It is helpful for breast health, cardiovascular health, and nervous system health, most importantly brain function (one of the main reasons I use it).
I continue to research and study oils that others have used since the beginning of time… and use what works for MY BODY!
A true story
While I was still in high school my mother was thrown into early menopause due to a surgery procedure. I thought she could have played the part of the wicked witch of the west in the Wizard of OZ…quite easily!! I guess it did not help that my, now husband, (teenage hormonal) happened to accompany us on a vacation that year. I am surprised he decided to stay around considering most daughters not only will look like their mothers, (he was fine with this one) but act like them too. We had no idea what hormonal imbalances were, we just thought she was practicing for that wicked witch audition. In mother’s defense, having two teenage hormonal kids along probably did not help what she was going through at the time. I too experienced a hormonal imbalance as a grew older and probably drove my kids a little crazy too so it may be true "what comes around goes around." I do think I caught mine at an earlier stage so READ ON to see how you can too!
My gynecologist called and notified me that after comparing a before and after blood work up that all of my hormone levels were brought back to normal with only using essential oils! She was excited and amazed too! This is BIG… and I did it all with natural organic seed to seal pure therapeutic products. Young Living of course… it is the only essential oils my family trusts!
