HOW OZONATED OILS BALANCE HORMONES
Hormone-balancing ozonated oils help support our body’s control center, the hypothalamus, in its efforts to produce, release, and regulate hormones. This small brain structure is involved in many processes necessary for survival including behavioral, autonomic (involuntary or unconscious), and endocrine-system related processes. The hypothalamus controls the hormones that are crucial to our everyday physiological functions such as body temperature, hunger, thirst, sleep, mood, and sex drive. What’s more, hormone-balancing ozonated oils can help you balance your hormones naturally.
The hypothalamus creates homeostasis or balance in the brain. The hypothalamus produces the following hormones: thyrotropin-releasing, gonadotropin-releasing, growth hormone-releasing, corticotrophin-releasing, somatostatin, and dopamine hormones.
These hormones then release into the blood via the capillaries, which are small vessels that connect veins and arteries and allow for gas exchange, ultimately allowing us to breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide. The hormones then travel to the anterior pituitary region, where they are further signaled by the hypothalamus to either be sent out to the target glands: the Adrenal Cortex, the Adrenal Medulla, or the female/male Gonads, or the hormones are returned and flushed out of the body.
Your adrenal gland is responsible for how you cope with stress. Our stress levels vary from day to day as we interact with coworkers and strangers and drivers on the road. The hormone responsible for stress-related symptoms is produced by the adrenal glands and regulates your body’s response to stress. Unbalanced cortisol levels can give you feelings of exhaustion, the inability to calm down or sleep on time, and increased food cravings at odd hours of the day.
Life is demanding, but the key to balancing the adrenal gland is to allow yourself to be taken care of. Take time out of your busy day for restorative care and get a minimum of 6 hours of sleep every night.
The posterior pituitary also carries two important hypothalamic hormones, oxytocin and vasopressin, and the only difference is that the posterior pituitary also stores these two hormones versus the anterior pituitary does not store its hormones (the hypothalamus does).
As you keep reading, you will gain a lot more in-depth knowledge about why and how ozonated oils are good for you.
Balancing Hormones for Women:
Ozonated oils can support the natural balance of the progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone hormones. They can also support your hypothalamus in regulating thyroid hormones (T3 and T4). This can possibly help regulate the menstrual cycle and give you some relief from the anxious wonderings of when my next menstrual flow will arrive.
Balancing Hormones for Men:
Ozonated oils can benefit men by helping to lower their cortisol and reduce stress. They can also support the balancing of testosterone levels to keep them calm while still supporting masculinity. Frankincense ozonated oil is especially beneficial for supporting men's health, and I recommend creating a nice balance of these oils that works for you.
Often called "the best oil for your worst time of the month," ozonated Hemp Seed Oil is an amazing substance that no woman should be without. With the ability to reduce cortisol levels by simply inhaling it from the bottle, ozonated Hemp Seed Oil should be the first oil that you reach for when stress levels run high near your cycle. In fact, research demonstrated its ability to lower cortisol levels by 36 percent as well as improve the levels of your thyroid hormones. It also works well when used as an abdominal massage to relieve tightening menstrual cramps and uncomfortable tension during your period by relaxing your smooth muscles. Calming and soothing the mind and body coupled with some deep breathing exercises can also help to resolve your stress levels and bring calm to your body and mind while helping you to reclaim the balance in your life.
Safflower ozonated oil never ceases to amaze me with its dual power of both uplifting and calming simultaneously. Diffused or applied topically, safflower ozonated oil alleviates stress and anxiety while reviving your emotions and uplifting your mood. By reducing your heart rate and blood pressure, it allows the body to recover from stressors and harmonize the body’s systems back to normal functioning. Again, the stress component restricts the body’s reproductive functions, so lowering cortisol levels must be achieved before the body can regulate its other systems.
