Your Sex Hormones and Genetics -What You Need to Know Right Now

What do hormones have to do with genetic disposition? 

Well, it turns out – quite a bit. Hormones are chemical messages that are produced in one place but have an interesting cascading effect on every other system in your body. Especially true for women- your sex hormones impact every facet of your health.

But different hormones affect your body in distinct ways. Throughout the female menstrual cycle, hormonal levels fluctuate. Your body in turn is designed to beautifully respond to these different levels and it is genetics that controls how one female body converts hormones compared to another.

Women’s bodies react uniquely to environmental factors based on their cycle at any given time – some women, for example, see quicker results at the gym while others can go every single day for 6 months and still discouragingly see nothing.  

The differences of the monthly cycle – from how women feel, the behavioural tendencies, the mood tendencies… all can be traced to the dominance of the hormones, whether it’s estrogen, androgen, or progesterone. 

This is because of one’s genetic disposition -and finding out about yours, is the key to unlocking a wealth of knowledge about your health. 

Think of your genomic makeup as your operating manual. 

You need to know why your body and hormones do what they do in order to effectively treat it. Your sex hormones in particular impact every aspect of your physiological and mental health. 

Did you know that 80% of meds that are recalled are pharmaceutics that are meant for women? This alarming statistic is attributed to poor clinical trials and highlights the need for really understanding the uniqueness of the female body. Also, the key concerns women have about their health are related to fertility issues, metabolic issues, mental health, cardiovascular and diseases such as breast cancer. The DNA Company recognizes this shortage of proper guidance available and wants to empower women to take control of their health.
