Holy Hormones Honey! Hormone imbalance is a global issue. It is disheartening to read that women in developing countries are having so many menstrual problems. Combination of synthetic hormone use, lack of nutrition for proper endocrine system support and environmental toxins. Wonder how many generations of developing world women have been exposed to synthetic hormone birth control products? What women are not told is that these birth control methods deplete nutrients. If they are not replaced then a myriad of other problems occur from menstrual migraines to painful periods.

A woman’s life is NOT simple. It is safe to say that unlike men, women experience a lot of changes, not only during the adolescent years but even during adulthood too. Take for example menstruation—women undergo pre and post menstrual syndrome, and add to that the weeklong menstrual period. In these times, a lot of bodily changes occur, including psychological changes due to the fluctuation of hormones. Furthermore, add to this “default” amount of stress and pressure that work and family life can give. It’s no wonder why women often break down and explode frequently… children, most especially husbands can attest to that!

Having a chronic condition is bad enough, but when the medical profession fails to take it seriously, then a grave injustice is done. This, it would seem, is quite common in an illness that is exclusively confined to women.

It’s dangerous to start posts with anecdotes, but I’m gonna try it again. This one is from when I was a little baby proto-feminist, and I got my period. My mama, who was born in the USA in 1945, regaled me with stories about old myths around menstruation: she talked about how when she went to college, for example, her home economics teacher very seriously reassured the students that “Now, it’s just not true that if you bake a cake while menstruating, the cake will fall,” and “Now, it’s just not true that if you milk a cow while menstruating, the milk will sour.” Imagine, if you will, living in a world where that kind of myth-busting had to be offered at the university level.
Progesterone is a hormone made naturally by the body that plays a role in the menstrual cycle and helps maintain a pregnancy. If you have low progesterone levels, your doctor may recommend medication to help raise the amount of progesterone in your body. Though synthetic progesterone may be given, there are some natural ways to help increase progesterone. Before using supplements for this purpose, consult with your health care provider or gynecologist to see if these are safe and appropriate in your situation.
