Anger – Can it be my hormones?

Mention the word “hormones” and it immediately conjures up the image of a woman who is out of sorts.  However, men and women have identical hormones and both sexes are prone to the same hormonal imbalances.  Imbalance of certain hormones can certainly lead to problems with anger issues. There are different types of anger.  What I will be addressing is uncontrollable anger, road-rage anger, unreasonable anger, and short-fuse type anger; the kind of anger causing people to wind-up in “anger management” classes. This kind of anger is strictly related to hormones.  It is the type of anger that never [...]

Every system in the body, at any age, is controlled by hormones. Accordingly, at any age, hormones can be out of balance and this factor can give rise to certain symptoms, or,moreseriously, certain conditions. In spite of their importance to our health, doctors receive relatively little information about hormones during their training. Instead, emphasis is placed on using prescription drugs to treat the symptoms of disease rather than getting hormones into balance to eliminate the problem. To demonstrate how pervasive hormonal imbalance is, two columns will be presented. One will represent the symptoms that can occur, and the next [...]
