Can Hormone Balancing Improve Allergies Or Asthma?

If your asthma or allergies tend to worsen during certain dates of the month, or even as you get older it could be due to your hormones.

Research has proven that allergies are frequently caused or exacerbated through natural body changes and cycles, such as menopausal, pregnancy, and puberty. The hormonal fluctuations can also trigger greater severity of asthma symptoms in the majority of women, particularly women who are older, usually prior to or after the start of menstrual cycle and the chance of having severe asthma attacks quadruples during menopausal.

Progesterone levels are elevated just prior to the start of menstrual cycles and stay high until they close, and can be linked to the deterioration of the symptoms of asthma in around 40 percent of women. A study linked the development of asthma and allergies with menstrual cycle irregularities.

Menopausal women’s hormones in her ovaries diminish the production of progesterone and estrogen and progesterone, which is also associated with worsening allergy symptoms. Certain women however have their asthma and allergic symptoms diminish with menopausal. It is believed that women’s bodies respond differently to progesterone and estrogen hormones, and therefore hormonal changes could affect asthma or allergies differently.

Research has also shown that autoimmune disorders such as celiac disease, arthritis, Chron’s disease, Lupus, the rheumatoid arthritis, and insulin-dependent diabetes are also influenced through hormones. These are 3 times more prevalent in women who are premenopausal as in the general population.
