Hormonal imbalance -a symptom of an imbalanced nervous system and unresolved trauma.


Hormonal imbalances don't suddenly happen overnight. They are intricately connected to your identity, your nervous system functioning, your stress level and lifestyle and are the result of chronic and untreated dis-ease at a holistic level - including emotionally and energetically.


Hormonal imbalance is a symptom of deeper dysfunction. It means there is serious healing work to be done.It doesn't mean you are forsaken and now have to live with this condition.


Trauma makes us more reactive to stress and spikes in cortisol can affect our entire hormonal balance.


Trauma and chronic stress responses impact the hypothalamus-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA) which is responsible for modulating our stress and immune response.



The main determinants of HPA axis activity are our genetic background (ancestral trauma, inherited conditions, diets) early-life environment and trauma (including womb conditions) and current life stress levels. Early life stress and trauma changes oxytocin levels within the hypothalamus and the amygdala. These are important brain regions in the production of oxytocin and emotional regulation. It affects mental health, immunity and nervous system regulation.


Hormones are chemical messengers, they carry information vital to our inner balance and functioning. This information is based on the entire state of the nervous system and neuroendocrine balance. We cannot treat hormones without addressing structural and functioning issues of the nervous system, including trauma.


Research shows that women exposed to child abuse showed reduced oxytocin levels later in life, as did men who had experienced childhood stress.



Why are women still being compartmentalised and treated like a circuit board? It's not anatomically relevant to treat 'hormones' without working with the entire nervous system, the organs and the trauma. If this is happening, it's called tinkering. My definition of tinkering is playing with a person's system at a superficial level to make surface ripples in the ocean of change.


When I hear about clients getting 'treatment for their hormones' i just wonder why they are wasting their money. And the worst thing is that it will go on for years and years and women get their identities attached to these conditions which then generates more nervous system messages and reconditions the brain and entire psyche to one of fundamental imbalance.


This reinforces the sense that there is something innately 'wrong' with their body and brain, that they cannot heal or fix it, it's just the way they are, they have a lifelong issue that now they have to live with and accept - and quite frankly, this is the same shame cycle that has suppressed women and kept them from healing and reconnecting to their their wombs and bodies for so many generations.
