YOUR BODY, YOUR HORMONES
It's time to understand your body, your hormones
Estrogen is your happy hormone or Yang hormone. It stimulates mood and libido by stimulating serotonin and dopamine. Estrogen stimulates your uterine lining to grow and thicken . Too much estrogen can cause heavy and painful periods.
Progesterone is your calming hormone or your Yin hormone. It improves sleep, builds muscles, stimulates metabolism and reduces inflammation. Progesterone counterbalances high estrogen by thinning the uterine lining.
