Hormones and Our Mental Health

Mental Health

We all know hormones impact our mental health.

Take a look at the emotional and behavioral changes that happen during women’s menstrual cycles and before and after pregnancy. And look at the changes that occur in men and women during puberty.

So doesn’t it seem logical that an imbalance in hormones would be involved in emotional and mood disorders?

I’m not telling everyone with a mental health diagnosis to run out and take progesterone.  I’m encouraging people to educate themselves on the importance of hormone balance.  And if one finds they have imbalance, I’m encouraging them to have the courage to correct it with the help of their doctor.
