Hormones are chemical messengers created by the body to transfer information from one set of cells to another. As hormones are released into the bloodstream, they coordinate and control the various functions of the body to maintain health and stability. The endocrine system in your body is made up of glands that produce and secrete hormones to regulate the activity of cells or organs. Hormones regulate the body’s growth, metabolism, sexual development, and function. When our hormone levels drop, becoming unbalanced, our health is affected. The hormones created and released by the glands in your body’s endocrine system control nearly all the processes in your body. These chemicals help coordinate your body’s functions, from metabolism to growth and development, emotions, mood, sexual function and even sleep. Hormones are chemicals that coordinate different functions in your body by carrying messages through your blood to your organs, skin, muscles and other tissues. These signals tell your body what to do and when to do it. Sometimes your endocrine glands produce too much or not enough of a hormone. This imbalance can cause health problems, such as weight gain, high blood pressure and changes in sleep, mood and behavior. Many things can affect how your body creates and releases hormones. Illness, stress and certain medications can cause a hormone imbalance. Some of the most common disorders are Diabetes, Thyroid Disease, Low Testosterone (Low-T), PCOS, and Osteoporosis. Endocrine disrupters can also affect hormone balance. These chemicals appear everywhere — in pesticides, plastics, cosmetics and even our food and water.
