What are hormones?

A hormone is a chemical substance. It's secreted by one tissue and travels by way of body fluids to affect another tissue in your body. In essence, hormones are "chemical messengers." Many hormones, especially those affecting growth and behavior, are significant to both men and women.

The amount and levels of hormones change daily. The SEX hormones, estrogen and testosterone, are secreted in short bursts -- pulses -- which vary from hour to hour and even minute to minute. Hormone release varies between night and day and from one stage of the menstrual cycle to another.

What is estrogen?

Estrogen is an entire class of related hormones that includes estriol, estradiol, and estrone.

Estriol is made from the placenta. It’s produced during pregnancy.

Estradiol is the primary sex hormone of childbearing women. It is formed from developing ovarian follicles. Estradiol is responsible for female characteristics and sexual functioning. Also, estradiol is important to women's bone health. Estradiol contributes to most gynecologic problems, including endometriosis and fibroids and even female cancers.

Estrone is widespread throughout the body. It is the main estrogen present after menopause.

Why do estrogen levels fall?

There are many reasons why estrogen levels fall, including:

  • Hypogonadism
  • Hypopituitarism
  • Pregnancy failure (estriol)
  • Perimenopause and menopause (estradiol)
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS)
  • Anorexia nervosa (eating disorder)LESS EATING OR OVER EATING
  • Extreme exercise or training

Drugs that block estrogen include clomiphene, which  tricks the body into thinking it has decreased levels of estrogen. Also, women experience low levels of estrogen immediately after childbirth and also during breastfeeding.

Why do estrogen levels rise?

During puberty, it's normal for levels of estrogen to rise. That’s because this hormone fuels changes in a young girl's body. For example, it plays a role in the development of breasts, a more mature curved figure, fuller hips, and pubic and underarm hair.

In addition, high levels of estrogen are seen in women who are extremely overweight. Estrogen levels rise during a healthy pregnancy, and increased estrogen levels may be seen with tumors of the ovaries, testes, or adrenal glands.

Some drugs, such as steroid medications, ampicillin, estrogen-containing drugs, phenothiazines, and tetracyclines can increase estrogen levels.

What happens when testosterone levels rise or fall?

If your body produces too much testosterone, you may have irregular or absent menstrual periods. You may also have more body hair than the average woman. Some women with high testosterone levels develop frontal balding. Other possible effects include acne, an enlarged clitoris, increased muscle mass, and deepening of voice.

High levels of testosterone can also lead to infertility and are commonly seen in polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS). PCOS is an endocrine condition that is sometimes seen in women of childbearing age who have difficulty getting pregnant. Women with PCOS have symptoms similar to those produced by high testosterone levels. They include:

  • Obesity
  • An apple-shaped body
  • Excessive or thinning hair
  • Acne
  • Menstrual irregularity

10 Ways Women Should Take Care of Their Health


1. Eat Healthy, Stay Healthy

Are you the one who heaps food? Stop doing so because unknowingly you are increasing your caloric intake. So, eat the right amount of fruits and vegetables as it can increase your metabolism and give a healthy life. It is advisable to control your meal portions. Switch to three meals and two snacks a day program and try to include more calcium in your diet. Calcium not only protects against bone thinning but also reduces the significance of PMS (Premenstrual Syndrome).

2. Tone-Up with Yoga

Redefine your beauty with Yoga and Meditation. Relax your mind by simply focusing on your breath with easy Yogasanas. This will establish a sense of calm, peace and balance. Also, assist in controlling heart diseases.


A good sleep is like fuel which runs your body and mind. So, get at least 8 hours of sleep. Think sleep as your long-term investment as it is going to contribute to your mental and physical wellbeing. Try to not rely on pills for sleeping.


REVITALIZE your mind and body with the regular intake of water. It is advisable to drink 7-8 glasses of water. Stick to this rule to improve digestion and overall health.  Try lemon and honey water, natural juices, green tea, coconut water or water-rich fruits to keep yourself hydrated.


Just do what you enjoy every day to slow down your stress level. It might be dancing, listening to music, cooking, reading, chatting with your friends, painting or watching movies. Counting to 10 can also ease stress and help to improve your mood.


PAMPER yourself with a Spa treatment, FACIAL, BODY MASSAGE, FOOT MASSAGE, HEAD MASSAGE OR ANY AYURVEDA MASSAGE, ACCUPRESSURE, AROMA THERAPY ETC. It makes your body feel light, energetic, realses stress, increases happy hormones and body flexibity also helps in unblocking blocked nerves where mostly you feel pain. atleast one ot wice a month enjoy looking your best at all times. If possible, give yourself a new look from head to toe. It would definitely make you look and feel great about yourself.


THESE are said to be evils and are mostly associated with the risk of weight gain, high blood pressure, heart disease and others hormonal imbalances.


 Now a days Hormonal imbalances starts at very early age. like 15 yrs old teenager girl has this problem. lack of excercise, no activity for longer times, sitting more, walking less causes these major issues. So foregt about other things, spare some 30 to 45 mins of your body to maintain hormones.


Women has many hormones to work differently on different stages of age. so from starting like as an adolescent to elderly , every one should make a habbit of taking more of herbs like mint, coriender, tusli, bhrami, ashwagandha, or make infuse tea or water with all these adding cinnamon, ginger, licorice, lemon, garlic etc. makes your metabolism boost up and maintain weight, stablise hormones, makes your body aklaine with Antioxidants. and all these on regualr basis keeps fighting with bad toxins. Eat nuts n seeds keep your skin aging gracefully and makes your body active & Fit.


AGAIN im repeating just remember 1 thing : FOR WOMEN- HEALTH SHOULD BE THE TOP MOST PRIORITY 

so dont forget to go for regular body check ups. atleast twice in 1 year, you should know about all your hormone levels into range, abody each organ, about body fat levels, blood sugar levels, other hormones like Thyriod, Insulin, etc. Liver n Kidney prper functioning.

MANY PEOPLE IN TODAY'S BUSY LIFESTYLE FORGET TO EAT THE FIRST MEAL OF THE DAY. THE MOST IMPORTANT DIET OR MEAL OF THE DAY IS BREAKFAST. BREAKFAST MEANS BREAK THE FAST. WHEN YOUR BODY WAKEUP IT DEMANDS ALL NUTRIENTS, ACTUALLY SOMETIMES BODY BEG FOR THE 114 NUTREINTS OR IT CRAVE FOR THESE NUTRIENTS TO WORK PROPERPLY ON DAILY BASIS. SO WHAT YOU ACTUALLY GIVES... NOTHING OR JUST COFFE OR TEA WITH SOME SIMPLE CARBS. WHAT R THOSE ESSENTIAL NUTREINTS? An essential nutrient is a nutrient that the body cannot synthesize on its own -- or not to an adequate amount -- and must be provided by the diet. These nutrients are necessary for the body to function properly. The six essential nutrients include carbohydrates, protein, fat, vitamins, minerals and water.   Carbohydrates are the main energy source for the brain. Without carbohydrates, the body could not function properly. Sources include fruits, breads and grains, starchy vegetables and sugars. Make at least half of the grains you consume whole grains. Whole grains and fruit are full of fiber, which reduces the risk of coronary heart disease and helps maintain normal blood glucose levels. 55 TO 60% OF YOUR ENERGY COMES FROM CARBS. Protein is the major structural component of cells and is responsible for the building and repair of body tissues. Protein is broken down into amino acids, which are building blocks of protein. Nine of the 20 amino acids, known as essential amino acids, must be provided in the diet as they cannot be synthesized in the body. 15 TO 25% percent of your daily calories should come from lean protein sources such as low-fat meat, dairy, beans or eggs OR PLANT PROTEIN. Fat is an energy source that when consumed, increases the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins including vitamins A, D, E and K. 15 tO 20% percent of your daily intake should come from fat. Choose healthy options such as omega-3-rich foods like fish, walnuts and vegetable-based oils. Omega-3s help with development and growth. Limit intake of saturated fats such as high-fat meats and full-fat dairy. Other smart choices include nuts, seeds and avocado. Vitamin C is necessary for the synthesis of collagen, which provides structure to blood vessels, bone and ligaments. Rich sources include citrus fruits, strawberries and peppers. Folate, found in foods, helps to prevent birth defects. Pregnant women or women who plan to become pregnant should speak with their physician about taking a folic acid supplement, the synthetic form of folate, in addition to their diet. Vitamin D helps to maintain calcium homeostasis. It can be found in food sources or synthesized by the sun. Minerals Sodium helps to maintain fluid volume outside of the cells and helps cells to function normally. Keep intake under 2,400 milligrams per day. Potassium maintains fluid volume inside and outside of cells and prevents the excess rise of blood pressure with increased sodium intake. Rich sources include bananas, potatoes and tomatoes. Calcium helps to maintain and build strong bones and teeth. Include three servings of calcium-rich foods per day including milk, low-fat cheese and yogurt. Water Water helps to maintain homeostasis in the body and transports nutrients to cells. Water also assists in removing waste products from the body. All beverages and high-moisture foods such as soup and watermelon contain water and count towards your daily water requirement. Adults should consume 25 to 35 milliliters of fluids per kilogram body weight or 2 to 3 liters per day. SO YOU NEED ALL THESE IMPORTANT NUTREINTS IN BREAKFAST ?  THERE ARE MANY REASONS TO EAT HEALTHY NUTRITIOUS BREAKFAST, FEW MOST IMPORTANT ARE: 1. INCREASES METABOLIC RATE Your body has been in starvation mode all night. Wake it up with something nourishing and this will help keep your waistline trim by increasing your body's metabolic rate (fat-burning potential). 2. BALANCES BLOOD SUGAR Provided you are not eating a white bagel or a muffin, your mood and energy will be good and you will reduce the risk of diabetes, heart 3. GETS YOU ON TRACK TO MAKE HEALTHY CHOICES ALL DAY People who eat breakfast tend to eat a healthier diet overall. Makes sense right? I know this to be true for every client I consult, as soon as they get on the right track with their breakie, they are so inspired and motivated for the rest of the day to make better choices. 4. GIVES YOU ENERGY (NOT JUST PHYSICAL), INCREASES YOUR MENTAL & CREATIVE POWER Think about the fact that you are literally FEEDING YOUR BRAIN when you eat breakfast. 5. PROMOTES DETOXIFICATION Gets things moving in your gut after being in “starvation mode” all night. After you eat, food is pushed through and should be pushed out, making room for another meal to be digested. 6. YOU WILL EAT LESS LATER ON IN THE DAY IF YOU EAT BREAKFAST. Fuel up in the morning to avoid mindless snacking later in the day! 7. SKIPPING BREAKFAST INCREASE YOUR BODY'S INSULIN RESPONSE This, in turn, increases fat storage (muffin-top). 8. SKIPPING BREAKFAST IS ASSOCIATED WITH DECREASED PHYSICAL ACTIVITY Less activity, less energy (weight gain), increased risk of depression. 9. BREAKFAST SKIPPERS TEND TO EAT MORE JUNK LATER IN THE DAY Chips, candy, you name it! People who don't eat breakfast will likely nosh down on this stuff later in the day than those who eat a healthy breakfast. 10. MANY PEOPLE TELL ME THEY DON'T HAVE TIME FOR BREAKFAST. Sorry, but this is no excuse. Would your car perform efficiently if you decided you didn't have time to fill it with FUEL? Would your bicycle work if you decided you didn't have time to fill the tires with air? Make time for yourself. YOU are the best person to take care of you. Taking just 10 minutes of mindful time in the morning for fueling your body with goodness is an affirmation to yourself that you are 100% worth it.                 "YOUR BODY IS THE PLACE WHERE YOU CAN LIVE IN" YOU BUY BIG HOUSES, BIG CARS FOR YOU, FOR LIFESTYLE, BUY EXPENSIVE CLOTHES, WEAR DIAMONDS, JEWELLERY, SPEND MONEY ON USELESS THINGS LIKE BADGETS ,THEY ARE DEPRICIATED IN VALUE. BUT IF YOU INVEST ON YOUR HEALTH, ON YOUR BODY, YOU CLEAN IT EVERYDAY, INSIDE OUT, YOUR WEAR GOOD NUTRITION, YOU SPEND MONEY ON VALUABLE FOOD ITEMS N GOOD GROCERY, YOU ARE ACTUALLY INVESTING ON YOU SO THAT YOU DONT NEED TO SPEND MONEY ON DISEASES IN FUTURE. HANDLE YOURSELF YOUR HEALTH WITH CARE, LOVE, NUTRITION AND PHYSICAL ACTIVITIES. WE AT NUTRICURE DIET CLINIC HELPS YOU TO ACHEIVE YOUR OPTIMISED HEALTH BY GUIDING AND MAKING SIMPLE PLAN WHICH CAN CHANGE YOU N YOUR LIFE FOREVER.

What is the significance of worshipping Shakti during nine days of Navaratri ? A) This vrat was advocated by Sage Narad to ShriRam, so that He could kill Ravan. After completion of this vrat, ShriRam attacked Lanka and finally killed Ravan. B) The Goddess fought with the demon Mahishasur for nine days from Pratipada to Navami and finally killed him on the Navami night. Since then, She came to be known as Mahishasurmardini, the annihilator of Mahishasur. 2. Importance A) Whenever the tamasik, demoniacal and cruel people become powerful and start troubling the sattvik, righteous humans, the Goddess incarnates to reinstate Righteousness. This is the vrat of this Deity. B) During Navaratra, the Goddess Principle is a thousand times more active than usual. Fasting has been recognized for its many health benefits dating back to Hippocrates. These benefits extend to everything from better weight management, improved cardiovascular health, healthier blood composition, and better cell recycling, among many others.                                                                                        Health Benefits of Fasting 1. Improves Body shape,size and overall Fitness People fast for all kinds of reasons, to detox body & soul, siritual reasons like mostly on Navratra, and follows Navratra weight loss diet plans.and many are particularly interested in the effects fasting has on the body’s fat tissues and overall weight loss. Others fast or intermittently fast for better exercise results. Fasting contributes to a better body composition in several ways, primarily through its actions on hormones and fat metabolism. it also helps in re shaping your extra curves, removes excess of water, inch loss, and fat loss and weight loss which gives you overall health n fitness.  2. Promotes Greater Satiety Your fatty tissue acts as a kind of endocrine organ, producing several different hormones. One of these hormones, leptin, affects how full you feel. Fasting and weight loss significantly affect your hunger level and post-meal satisfaction through this hormone. With fasting, leptin levels drop initially, but as you lose weight, you decrease leptin resistance. Becoming more responsive to leptin signals increases how full you feel. It also promotes healthy Eating habbits, your body more efficiently connect with your brain signal, knows well how much to eat and when to stop. your appetite becomes little bit surpress when you start following fasting or Navratra weight loss diet plans. 3. Boosts Your Metabolism Leptin, though known primarily as the “satiety” hormone, also increases thyroid hormone production. Improved leptin sensitivity increases the rate of your metabolism if you have a sluggish thyroid. Also incudig Pink himalayan salt or Rock salt helps alot in maintaining hormone levels, as they both acient salts are loaded with minerals and iodine too, and even better than synthetic White iodized salt. drinking more water and eating green n clean food helps in detoxification, emoves toxins, and boost metabolism. 4. Supports Fat Loss and Ketosis Ketosis, or the fat-burning state, is reached either by fasting or eating a diet centered on healthy fats. Ketosis helps you burn through your fat reserves. Excessive central fat stored around organs, like your liver and kidneys, interferes with organ function. Fasting, particularly intermittent fasting, helps you reach ketosis even faster than traditional caloric restriction. One study found that fasting significantly boosted fat metabolism in humans. As grains are the main source of carbs and when we avoid normal roti n rice pulses legumes, we actually cutting down out carbs. and on fasting we can add more of veggies and fats that should be good one, and proteins, so energy comes from fat source, and glucose levels get remain down. Results not much spike of insulin most of the time and low levels of sugar levels in blood helps in loosing weight. 5.Improves Cardiovascular Health One of the main benefits of fasting, particularly for people that have metabolic syndrome-related health concerns, is the many immediate cardiovascular benefits. Fasting improves cardiovascular function, blood composition, and blood pressure. Those with type 2 diabetes or high cholesterol may find fasting helpful for addressing some of the associated health concerns. when we ristrict the amount of packed food, proccessed foods, refind flour and related junks n fats, it will give benifit to overall LDL levels, may helps in increases HDL levels with good fats. 6. Lowers Blood Pressure While fasting, many people develop lower blood pressure, primarily during the first week of a fast. It might not be fasting itself that decreases blood pressure, but rather a significantly lower salt intake and increased loss of salt through the urine. Also Himalayan salt, n sendha salt helps in reducing blood pressure as low in sodium content. highly benificial for paitients. 7. May Slow Aging and Enhance Longevity During Navratra weight loss diet plans are easy to follow, as we mostly eliminate grains, non veg, pulses n legmes n some vegetables, our body mainly depends on liquid diets, fruits,and good mount of healthy fats like seeds n nuts, so our skin glows n it helps in increasing longivity if we keep eating healthy habbits. 8. Improves Cell Recycling As we age, rogue cells, both human and foreign, can proliferate throughout the body unchecked and this damaged tissue can contribute to progressive disease. Fasting sends your body into cell recycling, a process of self-digestion at the cellular level called autophagy. But you’re not just digesting your fat to fuel yourself while fasting. Your body also targets malfunctioning cells and old tissues to optimize resources for survival. 9. Reduces Harmful Protein Production There are many proteins and metabolic products that provoke inflammation, particularly in the brain. Fasting and calorie restriction inhibit the production of free radicals and irritating proteins like inflammatory cytokines. Mounting evidence indicates that these contribute to premature brain aging and that fasting can decrease their production, protecting you from their impact.  10. Supports Healthier Collagen in Skin Your diet is important to your skin’s appearance, but fasting can also improve your skin’s integrity. High blood sugar changes the structure of collagen, weakening its strength and resilience. Since fasting substantially lowers blood sugar, you can think of it as a normal part of your skin care routine to ensure graceful aging.
