Hormonal Imbalance in Women

Disruptions in the hormonal system causes changes in the brain’s electrical activity, which doctors misdiagnose because of their focus on only one aspect of one bodily system, thus failing to understand the brain’s role in hormonal imbalance.

At Lifestyle Healing Institute® we test numerous hormones, both neurological as well as downstream organs which include the three female primary sex hormones – estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. While estrogen (includes estrone, estradiol, and estriol) and testosterone often increase electrical activity in the brain, progesterone balances the increases by helping to decrease the brain’s electrical activity. These modulations are the result of the brain having both excitatory neurotransmitters (increase the brain’s electricity) and inhibitory neurotransmitters (decrease the brain’s electrical activity).

Hormonal Imbalance of these three hormones by themselves, cause symptoms of an over electrified brain which leads to depression, anxiety, insomnia, fibromyalgia, and even changes in cognitive function.

These disorders usually occur in women in their 40’s and early 50’s, however, nowadays many women are experiencing symptoms much earlier due to the increased load of toxic and pathogenic exposure.


Dopamine is an excitatory neurotransmitter that’s enhanced by estradiol, which is the most potent of the three estrogen hormones. When dopamine is released it increases electrical energy in brain. Testosterone, in both sexes, enhances the dopamine receptor allowing for adequate dopamine production while also playing a crucial role in ovulation of the immune system.

Hormonal Imbalance from a deficiency in testosterone often mimics symptoms of depression and chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS). Dopamine plays an immense role in controlling the nucleus accumbens, the reward and pleasure center of the brain. “When dopamine is suppressed, many women (and men also) can exhibit symptoms of depression, loss of motivation, hopelessness, and the inability to get excited.”

Many find difficulty in activities such as exercise, shopping and even going to work every day. This causes many to self-medicate with drugs and alcohol just to feel more normal.


Serotonin is a calming neurotransmitter that decreases the brain’s electrical activity; however, under hormonal disturbances the production of neurotransmitters is compromised. “Without adequate estradiol levels, women’s serotonin receptors shut down completely.” Symptoms such as anxiety and loss of sleep are typical results until serotonin is balanced and the restoration of the brain’s calming chemicals occurs.

Lifestyle Healing Institute® accomplishes this task very quickly (3-4 weeks) by employing our All-Natural IV method and protocol, as we restore hormonal imbalances safely and without prescription medications. When the brain is working in unison with the body, and after electrical activity is restored, serotonin and other brain chemicals can once again keep a woman’s brain in harmony.

Our All Natural Intravenous therapy jump-starts this process, and coupled with our all natural supplements, a balanced diet, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle, maintains and safeguards the brain and body from falling back to an unbalanced state.


When GABA is released in the brain, it decreases the brain’s electrical activity. Progesterone is a woman’s natural GABA because it converts to allopregnanolone which activates the GABA receptor, thus calming the electrical voltage in the brain. Since there are many symptoms, like anxiety and restless thoughts associated with calming chemical deficiencies, it’s crucial to balance all chemicals in the brain including GABA.

It plays a vital role in balancing glutamate, which is the brain’s number one excitatory chemical, which causes cell apoptosis (death) through over excitation of the brain. It’s no wonder prescription drugs Klonopin, Ativan and Xanax are widely misused to treat anxiety and insomnia disorders associated with GABA deficiency.

It also comes as no surprise that many women feel “more normal” on drugs and alcohol because self-administered medications activate the same receptor as progesterone! We restore the brain’s electrical activity by identifying the true underlying cause of symptoms; thus alleviating the need for powerful prescription medications.


The ratio of estradiol to progesterone is important because the stimulating electrical effect of estradiol must be counter balanced by the calming effect of progesterone, if a woman’s brain and body are to act as one harmonious unit. Because estradiol increases dopamine activity in the brain, it causes an increase of electrical current throughout the brain region. Progesterone, naturally converts to allopregnanolone, then activates one of the brain’s calming receptors, the GABA receptor.

During the peri-menopausal years, progesterone production continues to fall while estrogen production remains the same, however without the calming effect of progesterone to oppose the stimulating effect of estradiol, most women begin to suffer the results of an over electrified brain, thus feeling symptoms of anxiety and insomnia.

Lifestyle Healing Institute® utilizes the testing results from over 100 specific biopatterns resulting in a treatment protocol that reveals a measurable diagnostic plan that realigns Hormonal Imbalances. Our All-Natural method fully restores a woman’s brain and body, so they’re working together again as one healthy unit.

Full menopause occurs when ovaries fail to produce both estrogen and progesterone. When estradiol dropout begins, the female brain loses another inhibitory chemical; serotonin. Without enough estradiol, dopamine also becomes much more limited.

The electrical effect that female hormones have on the brain is primarily the result of the ratio of estradiol to progesterone. By restoring hormones back to their optimal levels before symptoms start to occur will finally put your brain and body on the same page.
