How Do I Know if My Hormones
Are Out of Whack?
Do you feel like you have the blues? the winter blues? the full moon blues? the relationship blues?
Do you find yourself feeling angry? for no apparent reason?
How about sleep? too much? not
Do your joints ache? Breast tenderness? tired easy? feel exhausted at the end of the day? maybe you just can't deal with THAT phone call?
It's probably your hormones.
What are Hormones Anyway?
According to a quick google search:
"Hormones are chemical messengers that travel
through out the body coordinating couples processes like growth, metabolism and fertility. They can influence the function of the immune system and even alter behaviour."
There are so many hormones and so many functions, that it gets confusing and a lot easier to let it go in one ear and out the other. But at what cost? For myself, I have been researching hormones as a direct link to why my kidneys aren't filtering and why a huge cyst was growing on them.
Thyroid hormones with huge names that nobody can say. Important since too much or too little can actually cause death.
Insulin. Yes, it's a hormone. Who knew?
Estrogen. Well we all know that nasty critter don't we ladies?
Progesterone. Prolactin. Testosterone. Serotonin. Cortisol.
Ah...as I study these hormone names and their functions, it starts to become blatantly clear to me that mine, well..just don't work right.
You eat properly. You stay away from alcohol. You get to bed at a decent time. You're doing everything right. But you still feel this way.
The problem with eating flesh, and don't we eat a lot of it as Canadians? Is that there are so many chemicals added for quick growth, disease prevention, and only Gawd knows what else, that the meat is tainted and those chemicals effect our hormone production. But the Beef, Dairy and Big Pharma people won't tell you that. (not profit producing to inform us of the dangers).
SOOO...we end up with young women who can't get pregnant, young girls with periods when they are ten and breasts when they are nine, people suffering with auto immune disorders from A-Z and people like me. I have suffered with depression, anger issues, dysmenorrhea, ovarian cysts, miscarriages (three), and I almost lost the two children I did have. I had a tubal ligation at 23 because it was too dangerous for me to get pregnant. I had an "exploratory laposcipal surgery when I was 29 to discover why I had such terribly painful periods. I have also had the inability to sleep since I was about 15. The list goes on and on.
As I have searched for answers, gone from this to that, yadda yadda yadda, I now find myself in the position to FACE THE HORMONES...ugh.
Watch this video from the Truth About Cancer and hear the truth about hormone balance, outside toxic influences from water bottles etc and how essential oils can help to balance your hormones and PREVENT cancer.
so...frankinscense...the "king" of oils (queen?)
I have been using Frankincense regularly, drops under the tongue, on my scar, diffusing and applying to the bottoms of my feet, morning and night, with the intention of balancing my hormones. Wish me luck people...I will keep you updated....
with love and blessings to all who are suffering
