Hormones are the messengers of the body and play essential roles in nearly every physiological function. But without the right hormonal balance, communication between cells, tissues and organs can easily get mixed up. The body works hard to maintain precise hormonal harmony, but in today’s world, we often need extra support. Environmental toxins, particularly estrogen-mimicking chemicals, sleep patterns, stress levels, sedentary lifestyle and dietary habits can all impact hormone regulation.
When it comes to health, hormones and gut bacteria have a much bigger effect than many people realize. In fact, these two factors can destroy health even if everything else (diet, supplements, etc) is optimized. Conversely, fixing hormones and good gut bacteria can do a lot to boost health, even if not all the other factors are optimal. There are many natural compounds, herbs and nutrients shown in research to promote healthy hormone balance in men and women.
Follow some simple rules to help maintain good hormone production. Keep the liver clean. Consume enzyme-rich foods or add good quality, active, complex enzymes to help the absorption and assimilation of necessary nutrients needed by the body. Eat a fiber-rich diet to help keep regular and the toxins purging out of the body. Avoid processed food, foods grown with chemicals and hair care products formulated with dangerously damaging chemicals.

They travel in your bloodstream to tissues or organs. They work slowly, over time, and affect many different processes, including:
Endocrine glands,which are special groups of cells, make hormones. The major endocrine glands are the pituitary, pineal, thymus, thyroid, adrenal glands and pancreas. In addition, men produce hormones in their testes and women produce them in their ovaries.
The thyroid system plays a critical role in your metabolism as it is one of the biggest contributing hormone glands that control your weight and metabolic functions. Many Americans struggle with a sluggish thyroid contributing to hypothyroid symptoms that disrupt optimal thyroid functioning. Flouride in our water systems and bottled drinking water contribute to thyroid dysfunction and should be eliminated due to it's direct effect on the thyroid gland.
Even Dr. Mark Hyman, MD says “most doctors just check something called thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), which doesn’t give a full picture of the thyroid. In fact, even the interpretation of this test is incorrect most of the time.” They sometimes neglect to check for auto-immune correlation and specifically don’t look for associated problems such as food allergies including gluten intolerance, deficiencies of other key vitamin and minerals, omega-3 fats other than vitamin D, plus heavy metals, PCB’s, BPA’s, dioxines and/or high pesticide levels.

The newer guidelines of the American College of Endocrinology consider anybody with a TSH level over 3.0 as hypothyroid. Whereas so many doctors think that only anything over 5 or 10 is worth treating. Unfortunately, this leaves millions suffering unnecessarily
