Hormonal Imbalance in Women

Hormones play a vital role in every woman’s health and well-being. Hormones work together like the instruments in a symphony: every hormone affecting every other hormone, and an imbalance of one hormone leads to imbalances of other hormones

Hormone imbalance in women causes many unpleasant symptoms and increases the risk of health problems such as osteoporosis and heart disease. Female hormone levels are influenced by nutrition, exercise, environmental toxins and stress. Although a healthy lifestyle can slow the age-related decline of hormone levels, hormone decline is a natural process of aging that will eventually cause hormone imbalance in all women
