A Hormone Cascade is how Hormones move through your body and what happens when they reach their target cell.
Why is Hormone Balance Important?
Very small amounts of hormone can set off a series of reactions in which the magnitude of the effect is amplified at each step. Hormones help keep the body functioning properly. When all of the hormone-producing glands in the endocrine system are balanced and working together in unison, we tend to feel and function better.
On the other hand, because hormones are the body’s chemical messengers, if one part of your hormonal structure is off, this will create a downstream effect on other hormones and negatively affect function.
