Hormones regulate virtually every key function of your body, from brain activity to cell metabolism to reproduction.
Hormonal balance is your body’s natural, healthy state. But chronic hormonal imbalance creates a host of problems — not just your current symptoms — but also a weakened immune system, accelerated aging, and an increased risk of disease.
Most women have experienced hormonal imbalance at some point in the form of PMS. Fortunately this is usually mild and transient.
But in perimenopause (the years leading up to menopause) over 80% of us develop disruptive, persistent symptoms of hormonal imbalance. Symptoms often appear in our early 30’s and worsen with the passage of time. Women who have suffered severe PMS, post-partum depression or seasonal affective disorder (SAD) earlier in their lives are more likely to have a difficult perimenopause and menopause.
The most common symptoms include hot flashes, fatigue, insomnia, loss of libido, and weight gain. But there are a host of others, from joint pain to headaches. (See symptoms to learn more.)
The underlying cause of hormonal imbalance in women is when the demands on your body overwhelm the support you provide yourself. Your body is forced to cope with these demands at the expense of healthy hormone synthesis and metabolism.
Poor nutrition, stress of all kinds and toxins in our environment are just a few of the many sources of demands on our bodies.
The good news is that you can restore your hormonal balance in a healthy and natural way. We’ve helped millions through our Health Programs.
