Adrenal Health and Female Hormones

October 7th, 2013

Most of you are quite familiar with the importance of balanced female hormones. But did you know how adrenal health directly affects those hormones? Your adrenal glands are directly related in making progesterone, estradiol and much more.



Having stressed adrenals will cause many health problems including hormonal, endocrine and very important immune system problems. Stress is not only work or family related; but rather can come from various sources, that affect the body.


There are three main sources of stress that can burden the body. If continued unchecked, emotional stress, chronic pain, and poor lifestyle choices can have a cumulative effect, making you more susceptible to allergies, infections, inflammation, and toxicity. Chronic stress causes your adrenal glands, which are charged with producing hormones to help you adapt to stress, to "burn out," leading to fatigue, depression, weight gain, sugar cravings, and hormone imbalance.


Can you remember times in your life when you felt long periods of stress? Below are a list of the top ten emotional triggers that can contribute to adrenal exhaustion.

  1. Death of a loved one.
  2. Relationship difficulties that may result to the end of that relationship or in divorce.
  3. Change in residence.
  4. Overworking, or termination of employment
  5. Pregnancy and the addition to family
  6. Outstanding personal achievement (graduation, promotion)
  7. Financial stress (mortgage, loans)
  8. Personal injury or illness                                              


Poor lifestyle choices can also take a toll on your health. Do you engage in any of the below habits? 

  1. Frequently skipped meals
  2. Regular consumption of refined sugar (processed foods, sweets, candy, sodas)
  3. Need caffeine (coffee, colas) to get going
  4. Too much or too little exercise
  5. Poor sleep habits


Pain is the most obvious response from the body that something is out of balance. But you may also be experiencing chronic inflammation as a result of poor diet or undetected infection. When your adrenal glands have been functioning in overdrive for a period of time due to poor lifestyle habits or unchecked stress, other body systems begin to suffer as a result of the imbalance. If you are experiencing any the following symptoms, it is time to give us a call, we CAN help.

  • Frequent colds
  • Infections
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Allergies
  • Constipation, diarrhea, bloating, or indigestion

AdrenalHealth-01Your complete health analysis begins with an assessment of the hormonal system provided by the Functional Adrenal Stress Profile.


This Profile measures adrenal stress caused by lifestyle issues such as working long hours, poor eating habits, lack of exercise or rest. Adrenal stress can also be caused by internal organ dysfunction such as poor digestion or inadequate detoxification ability. When the sum total of all your stress reaches a critical threshold, the adrenals react in a predictable pattern.


That can be fixed with a great functional medicine analysis based program and WITHOUT traditional synthetic hormones. Let us help you get your health and your life back on track. BOOK NOW to set up an initial consultation to see what's going on and how we CAN help.
