Eventually, all women go through a process called menopause. Usually at around age 50, this sometimes-unpleasant process begins. However, some women are experiencing menopause in their 30’s and commonly in their 40’s. Symptoms can include hot flashes; night sweats and increased irritability, poor sleep and more. In addition, this process can wreak havoc on relationships and overall quality of life.
Two major hormones associated directly with the female reproductive cycle are estrogen and progesterone. These two hormones are drastically reduced during menopause and are responsible for the majority of suffering.
Estrogen and progesterone are stimulated by the anterior pituitary gland, which is controlled by the hypothalamus portion of your brain. The hypothalamus is often referred to as the master control of your body because it regulates and controls many functions of the body. The hypothalamus receives its information from the nervous system that is housed within your spine. The central nervous system (brain and spinal cord) regulate all the critical, delicate functions of your body such as emotions, sexual desire, thirst and hunger, body temperature, and sleep patterns.
The spine, when under stress, alters the normal function of the nerves that control the levels of estrogen and progesterone. Misaligned vertebrae called SUBLUXATIONS are the primary cause of nerve system stress. The spine, when under stress, can obstruct the signals that are sent through the nerves and alter the levels of estrogen and progesterone. For this reason it is imperative that someone experiencing menopause have a comprehensive chiropractic evaluation. http://www.thrivenaples.com/first-visit/ Once the cause of the nerve system interference is located, a scientifically applied chiropractic adjustment can drastically ease the suffering caused by menopause.
