HORMONAL IMBALANCE


HORMONAL IMBALANCE


Many women are having hormonal symptoms earlier than normal, which has a lot to do with not only our lifestyle and diet, but also the pollution, toxins and xenoestrogens (synthetic chemicals that act as estrogen in our bodies) that we’re exposed to everyday. There are moments when we feel angry, frustrated and emotional, sometimes for no apparent reason. Often, we blame this on hormones. Hormones play a very important role in a woman’s health and well being. When hormone levels fluctuate, this can impact/affect your mood, sexual desire, fertility and ovulation.
