The leading cause of female hormone imbalance is adrenal burnout. Cortisol, the main adrenal hormone, is made from progesterone. Each time you are experiencing stress, the cortisol your adrenal system creates reduces your progesterone levels. PMS symptoms like cramping, cravings, mood swings, and irritability can be improved after functional lab testing and functional treatments that address these imbalances. Perimenopausal and menopausal symptoms like night sweats, hot flashes, memory issues, and mood swings can be caused by low estrogen levels. Estrogen is also made from an adrenal hormone, DHEA. This means that issues with the adrenal system may also be contributing to those symptoms as well.
