The Hardest Thing

Mental Health

The hardest thing about using hormones as a treatment option is going to be convincing your doctor that there are actually things he or she can do to help you be healthy! This is especially true if you are male.

The bottom line is we need balanced hormones (between estrogen and progesterone) in order to be mentally and physically healthy. If your body is not making enough progesterone you will get sick. When I say sick, I mean you can develop violent mood swings, depression, hallucinations, psychosis, migraines, excessive water weight, irritability, rage, racing thoughts, fatigue, anxiety… I could go on and on, but you get the point.

High estrogen can cause all the symptoms of bipolar disorder, schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder.

And thankfully now we can treat it with progesterone.
