Part One of Relieving Perimenopause: The Causes of Hormonal Imbalances

Any hormonal imbalance makes you feel like you’re not the one behind the wheel of your body anymore. Especially when you’re facing perimenopause or menopause, you may not understand what’s happening to you or if these feelings are normal.

Some symptoms of a hormonal imbalance can be simple but irritating, like occasional sleeplessness or night sweats. Others can impact your relationships, like mood swings and chronic headaches.

When these conditions start to compound on one another, creating mind fog, irritability, weight gain, and other symptoms, it might affect your self-esteem and leave you feeling like a whole other person.

Understanding the Processes of Menopause and Hormonal Imbalances

It's natural for your hormones to change over time. They change consistently in youth to promote healthy growth. But a major change starts to occur in a woman's body starting in her mid-40s and later. This is because your body is preparing to leave the fertile childbearing years behind and is slowing down the production of hormones it will no longer need.

While this process is completely natural, you may also develop symptoms like those discussed in the introduction, depending on your health condition and life circumstances. Don't worry. These are relatively normal and an expression of the hormonal imbalance you're experiencing while your body changes. But you don't have to experience them so severely.

Like those in Orenda's Mid-Life Balance plan, taking supplements that target these imbalances can help you start feeling normal again. 

The How’s of Hormonal Imbalance

A normal hormonal balance in a healthy individual with no chronic health issues and low stress is still created by a complex and incredible symphony of processes.

While there are many instruments in this symphony, the conductor of these processes is the pituitary gland. This is a small but vital piece of your brain near the optic nerves, and its function is to keep your hormones in balance. The pituitary gland, however, receives the sheet music for the hormonal symphony from the hypothalamus gland. This gland is larger and lies just above the pituitary gland within the brain.

The hypothalamus gland is in charge of maintaining homeostasis. From emotions to helping maintain your sleep cycle and even basic desires like thirst, this gland keeps track of it all. In response to your life conditions and stress levels, it tells the pituitary gland how much of a hormone you need, when more hormones are needed, where they are needed, and when they aren’t needed.

Where Problems Arise

The communication between the pituitary gland and the hypothalamus gland is absolutely critical for the proper distribution of your hormones. The most critical of them is called the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis or is also commonly referred to as the HPA Axis.

This thoroughfare of neurons is the primary method of communication between these two glands. It helps direct most of the hormones in your body. This means it is crucial that information properly flows along this vital axis; it’s fundamental for pituitary function and hormone balancing.

This process even affects the immune system’s function—but that’s a whole other story for another time.

Stress and Hormone Imbalance

Problems occur when the HPA Axis stops effectively transmitting communications between these two glands. This can leave your body without the hormones it needs or with too much of one, it doesn't need. Overall, this upsets the careful hormonal balance that the pituitary and hypothalamus glands build together. 

This is a natural response to high-stress situations, like those from significant life events and tragedies. But, most importantly for our discussion, this communication blockage can also occur because of the onset of menopause.

The gradual transition to menopause created by perimenopause is supposed to help reduce the number of symptoms you feel once menopause hits. Once menopause has set, a new hormonal balance must be created to establish a new state of homeostasis.

Even Minor Imbalances Can Make You Feel Terrible

Whether your menopause is natural or artificially set early because of surgery, you may face a wide variety of life-altering symptoms that make you feel tired, irritable, and confused.

These occur because the body must inhibit some communication occurring on the HPA Axis to stop the flow of hormones, like progesterone, which you'll need less of once the menstrual cycle stops. However, this inhibition can cause more issues when hormones associated with menopause aren't the only ones affected. Or as you experience a sudden steep decline in hormone production.

It's these sudden dips that often aggravate the symptoms of the Mid-Life transition for women. The stress of dealing with these symptoms can even make them worse.

Finding a Solution and a New Mid-Life Balance

You are not alone in your symptoms. Many other women have and do feel the way you do, and many of those women have found relief. Orenda O-Tropin spray can help you relieve these symptoms if they’ve become overwhelming.

Specialized professionals and scientists have identified natural amino acids and herbs which are believed to stimulate and awaken the process of hormone creation again. When you take these already powerful natural ingredients and distill them into a spray delivery system that utilizes liposomes (which are nano-sized bubbles of natural phospholipids), you get targeted and effective help that relieves your symptoms fast.
