Over the last three weeks we have discussed hormonal imbalances, their causes, and methods to manage them.
As we discussed a hormonal imbalance is having too little or too much of a given hormone with the smallest impacting one’s well-being. Hormones are natural chemical messengers within the body produced by endocrine glands meant to control the body’s major processes.
A quick review of Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms:

If any of these symptoms are observed, it may be an indication of Hormonal Imbalance and should be assessed by a qualified health professional to determine an appropriate management plan. There are both natural and medical methods that can be used to manage one’s Hormonal Imbalance.
A quick review of Natural Management options:
Adequate Protein Intake
Avoiding Sugar and Refined Carbs

If natural management methods do not prove to be effective there are also medical options.
A quick review of Medical options:
