Are You Shutting Off Natural Hormone Production?
A very common misconception is that we should not be supplementing hormones because it shuts off the body’s natural ability to make hormones. I understand where this thinking comes from. Hormone production is a feedback loop in your brain, so when your hormones are low, your brain turns on and says “make more hormones”. The only problem with this thinking is that in situations like perimenopause, where you aren’t ovulating regularly, the feedback loop can’t work correctly.
If you hear that you shouldn’t be supplementing hormones, do not believe it. I made this video to clear up this myth. I want you to understand what’s really going on with your body in perimenopause and menopause.
