Hormonal disbalance. What does it mean? A disbalance in the hormones of a human body; either your body is receiving a lot of a certain hormone or it is not getting enough of a certain hormone – hormonal imbalance occurs in the human body.
What are hormones?
Hormones are the chemicals in our body which help direct the cells to perform certain functions. Supposedly, a person may have a darker skin and the other may have a fairer complexion. We direct the complexion to the genetic traits a person derives from his family, but hormones also do play an important role in the same. Sometimes one feels that he should consume a sweet delicacy or something spicy all of a sudden. This happens when the hormones activate and direct your cells which in turn direct the brain to ask you for those food substances. An interesting fact about hormones is that it is not only present in the human beings but its is present in all the living things like animals, flowers, fungi etc. which function on the chemical reactions happening in their living streams.
Have you ever felt super hungry and then your mood swings and as soon as the food comes up in front of you, you deny to consume it. This game is well played by the hormones of the body. Maybe your stomach is all full and does not require food but your brain triggers the signals that you need to eat food and your stomach is empty. The substance that triggers your brain and then makes your mood swing is a hormone of your body. Hormones are the ones that direct the cells and trigger the other body parts to perform their functions. Like, it may tell the cell to burn the food you consume or store it as a fat in your body for later use. Everything depends upon the hormones of your body.
