Hormones, Moods & Your Brain: What Every Woman Should Know! by Dr. Christina Hibbert

Hormones (like estrogen) are precursors to the neurotransmitters in the brain (like seratonin) that make you feel "normal" and well. Estrogen levels shift during your cycle and directly alter brain chemistry. For many women, this means:

  • mood symptoms like anxiety, depression, irritability
  • even anger and rage

Understanding the hormone-brain-mood connection is the first step in taking care of yourself during "that time of the month." Seek less stress, more rest and better nutrition, and give yourself, your mood and your brain a break! Read more on hormones, the brain and mood here!
