It can happen to anyone at any age. As your hormone levels decline, so does your health. Plus, as hormone levels drop, aging accelerates.

Stages of life associated with hormonal imbalance
  • Premenopause / Premenopause

    This is when the production of natural hormones begins to decline, which has the potential to cause a variety of symptoms. Some of these symptoms include PMS, weight gain and infertility.

  • Perimenopause

    Perimenopause normally signals the beginning of menopause as it is during this stage that the first symptoms of menopause are experience. This is when a woman begins to experiences a lack of ovulation or erratic menstrual cycles. In the absence of the proper levels of progesterone, estrogen levels rapidly fluctuate from high to low.

  • Menopause

    Menopause is loosely defined as when a woman goes a full year without a period.

  • Postmenopause

    As ovulation ends, an imbalance in the ratio of estrogen to progesterone ratio can occur in which the ovarian production of estrogen can drop as much as 60%. Plus, progesterone levels can also drop down to zero. Unlike the menopausal stage, during postmenopause symptoms typically become more moderate to mild, therefore hormone treatments need to be adjusted accordingly.

  • Adrenal Fatigue

    Adrenal fatigue happens when there is an imbalance in the hormone Cortisol. Constant or intense levels of stress can be a trigger for adrenal fatigue. Due to the fact that cortisol levels in our body fluctuate throughout the day from high to low, adrenal fatigue often goes undetected and is difficult to treat. Shinabery's Compounding Pharmacy has accurate methods to measure your cortisol levels and determine an effective treatment if you suffer from the symptoms of adrenal fatigue.
