Hormones are chemical messengers that control how our bodies
function. They allow our bodies to maintain fairly constant in
temperature, weight and ability despite huge daily fluxes in food
intake energy use and external environment. Our stability is due
to the modulating influence of our hormones.
Hormones work in concert, with multiple layers of feedback and coordination. They are also heavily influenced by detoxification processes, nutrition, and immune system imbalances. For this reason, symptoms of hormonal imbalance need to be carefully investigated before being treated. Fatigue can be caused by a deficiency in thyroid hormone, adrenal hormones, estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, growth hormone or DHEA, but is most often caused by a combination of hormonal and non hormonal factors.
