Improving your body's communication
Hormones are one of the body's main messaging tools. When you do not produce enough of a particular hormone -- or too much -- it causes problems. Common hormonal imbalances include:
Low testosterone in men
PCOS (high testosterone in women)
There are many other issues related to one or more of the body's hormones being out of whack. The reasons for this vary, including nutrient deficiencies, poor diet, stress, inflammation, and oxidative stress. In some cases, the organ producing the hormone stops working, which requires more help than simply dietary changes. However, you will still notice a positive impact on your symptoms when you support your body with the right nutrients.
