Hormonal Disorders and the Benefits of Yoga: How Yoga Can Support Hormonal Balance

Hormonal disorders are a common health issue that occur when the body’s ability to regulate and control hormones is compromised due to an endocrine feedback system malfunction. These disorders can lead to various health problems such as heart rhythm disorders, bone and tissue development issues, and fertility problems.

Some common types of hormonal disorders include menopause, diabetes, Addison’s disease, Cushing’s syndrome, Graves’ disease, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, prolactinoma, and endocrine cancer. Practicing yoga regularly can help reduce stress and anxiety by releasing endorphins which act as natural pain relievers and interact with receptors in the brain to create a feeling of excitement.

Yoga also helps lower cortisol levels which is a stress hormone that can cause mood changes, weight gain, and insomnia when elevated. Serotonin is another neurotransmitter released during yoga practice which increases energy levels and improves cognitive function. Additionally regular muscle exercise during yoga increases metabolism while focusing on breathing stimulates the endocrine system to produce and distribute hormones effectively.

It is important to note that while yoga can support hormonal balance it should not replace medical treatment for endocrine diseases. People with such conditions should seek examination and appropriate treatment from an Endocrinologist.
