Hormones are chemical messengers that communicate between endocrine glands or an endocrine gland and an organ. Many physiological processes in the body including growth, metabolism, appetite, puberty and fertility in both males and females are affected by hormones.

Sub-optimal nutrition and poor detoxification processes may contribute towards hormonal imbalances and ongoing unwanted symptoms.

 

Do you have any of these symptoms?

  • Menstrual problems – heavy, painful or irregular periods
  • Breast tenderness
  • Irritability, mood swings
  • Fertility problems
  • Carbohydrate/chocolate cravings
  • Headaches/migraines
  • Fatigue
  • Poor memory
  • Depression/anxiety
  • Low libido
  • Insomnia
  • Facial hair
  • Acne
  • Unexplained weight gain – all over or just around the middle
  • Male pattern baldness

Many of these symptoms are attributed to pre-menstrual syndrome, peri-menopause, menopause and thyroid dysfunction, but that doesn't mean you have to put up with them. Conditions associated with hormonal imbalance also include:

  • Poly Cystic Ovary Syndrome
  • Endometriosis
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Fibroids
