Living on a cloud and then suddenly ragging, this sudden emotional change is a common symptom of menopausal hormone imbalance termed mood swings. Mood swings are defined as an inappropriate response to an occurrence or event or a rapid emotional change from happy to mad, sad or miserable.
The Role of Hormones
There is a direct connection between mood swings and hormonal imbalance. During perimenopause and menopause, the flunctuation of the sex hormones: estrogen, progesterone and testosterone can cause our moods to change immediately. An imbalance in progesterone can bring depression and an overabundance of estrogen and testosterone can result in aggressive or hostile behavior.
In addition, the levels of estrogen can influence the production of serotonin, the hormone that regulates mood. In short, as estrogen fluctuates, serotonin fluctuates and our emotions fluctuate out of our control.
Effective Treatment for Mood Swings
Hormonal imbalance has been identified by doctors as one of the main causes of mood swings. Rebalancing hormones that have been imbalanced during menopause through bioidentical hormone therapy can relieve mood swings and regulate our emotions naturally. Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT) with natural hormones provides a gentle, safe and effective way to restore hormonal balance, relieving many of the symptoms associated with aging and resulting in the recovery of youth and vitality. Unlike the synthetic hormones (HRT), which are produced from plant progesterone, animal estrogens and not identical to our hormones, bioidentical hormones are exact replicas of the hormones produced by our bodies naturally. Based on compounds found in nature, typically soy beans and wild Mexican yams, bioidentical estrogen and progesterone are recognized by the body as its own.
Diet, exercise, and proper nutritional supplementation can also play an important role in mood swings and overall health and prevention. To assess your symptoms and to learn more about how bioidentical hormones and other safe and effective tools of Age Management medicine can lead to hormonal balance, relieved mood swings and provide an overall well-being, contact a certified RestoreMD bioidentical hormone doctor in your area.
