Estrogen is a woman’s most important hormone. The loss of estrogen increases a woman’s risk of various health issues including: premature ovary failure, osteoporosis, heart disease, colon cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, tooth loss, impaired vision, Parkinson’s disease and diabetes. The longer a woman is without the protection of her own estrogen, the greater the risk for serious health consequences of these conditions.
There are estrogen receptors in a variety of organs throughout the body and brain. That’s why hormonal imbalance produces different symptoms such as loss of skin elasticity, bone shrinkage, mood and cognitive decline. When estrogen levels rise, their overall effect is to increase the amount of serotonin available in the spaces between the brain’s nerve cells, which improves mood. Within the brain, estrogen may in fact act as a natural antidepressant and mood stabilizer. It is therefore essential that a woman suffering from premature ovary failure or surgical menopause to receive treatment from a physician who understands the many ramifications of losing estrogen.
