Recent research has linked gut bacteria to hormonal balance and various physiological processes in the body.  Disturbances in gut bacteria, called gut dysbiosis, have been associated with hormonal imbalances, including polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and menopausal hormone fluctuations.  Gut bacteria influence the metabolism and modulation of sex hormones, such as oestrogen, which can affect hormone levels and contribute to conditions like oestrogen dominance.  Histamine, a biogenic amine, also affects hormonal balance and has a bidirectional relationship with sex hormones.  Imbalances in histamine levels can contribute to reproductive problems and menstrual irregularities. Histamine also interacts with the stress response system and affects cortisol production, highlighting its role in stress hormone regulation.Many women do not produce enough progesterone, which acts as an antagonist to oestrogen. The two hormones need to be in a certain ratio to each other for hormone levels to be balanced. If the progesterone is too low, the oestrogen has too much influence on the body. It literally dominates. The same is true when there is an actual oestrogen deficiency, for example during the menopause. The crucial factor here is whether the progesterone deficiency is even greater than the oestrogen deficiency.Therefore, a combination of hormone and gut tests is a good way to better understand the underlying problem and to treat the problem effectively.
