Beyond Symptom Management: Hormonal Imbalance in Young Women Today

Navigating womanhood can feel like a roller coaster, especially for those in their younger years. From the onset of puberty to the first foray into the workforce, hormones play a monumental role in shaping our experiences. However, for a growing number of young women, the hormonal landscape has become increasingly more treacherous, laden with environmental toxins and stressors that can manifest in a myriad of distressing symptoms.

In our discussions with numerous young women each week, a consistent theme emerges: their ongoing quest for natural remedies to help balance their hormones. They often express bewilderment at the stark contrast between their experiences and those of previous generations. These women report that their parents and grandparents appeared to have navigated reproductive health with fewer symptoms or with symptoms of lesser intensity.

They also mention feeling let down, sharing their feelings of disappointment when their healthcare providers primarily offer PMS medication or other symptom management solutions, feeling there's a lack of holistic understanding and treatment options for their conditions.

It's Hormonal Havoc, Not "Just a Period"

Early womanhood is a time of transition and development. The onset of pubertal changes signifies the awakening of the endocrine system, which begins to regulate the release of hormones essential for reproductive and overall health. Nevertheless, the modern world bombards young women with hormone disruptors—chemicals that interfere with the body's endocrine system. These disruptors can be found everywhere, from personal care products and plastics to pesticides and processed foods, causing an imbalance that exhibits as severe PMS, irregular periods, and even conditions like Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS).

Many young women experience symptoms of hormone imbalance without realizing the root cause of their discomfort. Often, they attribute irregularities in their menstrual cycle, mood swings, or unexplained weight changes to stress or lifestyle factors, overlooking the possibility of hormonal imbalances.

This lack of awareness can delay seeking help and understanding the connection of these symptoms with their overall health. Hormonal imbalances are not isolated to only reproductive health, but impact a broad spectrum of bodily functions, making it imperative for young women to recognize these signs early and consider hormonal health as an integral part of their overall well being.

Hormone Imbalance Can Start Before Puberty

Unfortunately, for many females today the chances of hormone imbalance is high due to the fact we are living in an estrogen-rich environment.

Currently, synthetic hormones like estrogen and progesterone are frequently prescribed to individuals as young as 12 years old. This trend particularly pertains to modern contraceptives, which, despite their widespread use, continue to pose numerous side effects including the considerable risk of precipitating hormonal imbalances. About 20% of younger girls will be on birth control before they ever turn 18 years old.
