Why Balance Hormones?
Hormones are chemical messenger compounds that are produced throughout the body by endocrine glands. They control every major body process from sleep to mood, metabolism and reproduction. Production of too little or too much of these hormones cause a variety of imbalance in the body, as the systems they control are disrupted.
Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms
Effectively, these disruptions are the cause of many bothersome symptoms so many of us live with on a day-to-day basis:

Water retention or puffiness
Low sex drive
Anxiety, irritability or depression
Hunger or thirst
Hormonal imbalances may be caused by a variety of factors including exposure to environmental toxins, inflammation, underlying health conditions, stress injury or trauma, medications and eating disorders.
