Hormone imbalances can show up in many different guises, meaning it can be difficult to understand what is happening. Plus, physical symptoms can affect us so profoundly that we can be left feeling overwhelmed, sad or even alienated from our closest relationships. What’s worse is that this can lead to us feeling disempowered, lacking confidence and unable to trust in ourselves anymore!
The reality is that most of us will experience symptoms of imbalance at some point in our life, but, if we don’t address the underlying causes, symptoms tend to become increasingly severe as we age. No wonder then, that women approaching mid-life often feel like their bodies have let them down; a cascade of hormonal changes can alter metabolism, mood, digestion, and sleep, which, in turn, can lead to weight gain, low self-esteem, and low sex drive.
