Women Health is guided by hormones
- Estrogen regulates the menstrual cycle
- Progesterone prepares the uterus for the fertilized egg
- Luteinizing Hormone (LH) –responsible for ovulation
- Follicle-Stimulating Hormone (FSH) – regulates development and release of mature egg
Rhythmic pattern – with high and low hormone levels – causing all kinds of symptoms.
→ The cycle can also be used as a guide in maintaining general health: Research suggests that the immune system peaks before ovulation and decreases afterwards.
