Hormone release and regulation are coordinated and controlled by the nervous system’s ability to signal and sequence hormones. Stress on a woman’s nervous system can inhibit this coordination. When stressed, the body releases the hormone cortisol, which inhibits the release of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. Oftentimes, anxiety, menstrual irregularities, cramping, stress, low energy, and tension in the neck and shoulders are directly related with this constant stress.
A well-adapted nervous system that isn’t constantly in fight-or-flight mode is essential for conception of your baby to occur and sustain itself.
