According to experts, each and every person undergoes through hormonal fluctuations at one point or another in his/her life. These fluctuations are natural and even required to help the body grow and keep its gland to function properly. But the real problem arises when your glands become over or under active and when they do not function properly.

Some of the glands that produce hormone and release it to bloodstream are adrenal glands, reproductive gland, pituitary gland, hypothalamus gland, thyroid and parathyroid glands and pancreatic glands. These glands produce hormones which are required for the overall development and growth of the body. When they produce hormones more than required, they are called hyperactive glands. And, when they do not produce hormones in the required amount, they are called underactive glands. Short stature, gigantism (abnormal growth in children), polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in women, irregular menstrual cycle, acne, and facial hair are some of the conditions which are usually experienced by the children and adults due to the hormonal irregularities.

Some of the factors and causes that trigger hormonal imbalance are:
1) Depression
2) Type 1 and type 2 diabetes
3) Hyperglycemia/Hypoglycemia (overproduction/underproduction of glucagon)
4) Underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism)
5) Overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism)
6) Poor diet and nutrition
8) Benign tumours and cysts 
9) Severe allergic reactions or infections
10) Chemotherapy and radiation therapy
11) Iodine deficiency (goitres)
12) Exposure to toxins, pollutants, and disrupting chemicals such as pesticides and herbicides.
