Hormonal Havoc

Whether it’s PMS, perimenopause, menopause, or andropause, the various symptoms that often accompany each can wreak havoc on our lives.  For us girls, symptoms like weight gain, hot flashes, irritability, and insomnia — annoying as they are — are merely indicators of underlying hormonal imbalances. For you guys, symptoms like ED (erectile dysfunction) are not caused by a Viagra deficiency — okay, that was just my attempt at lightening up a touchy subject, but just like muscle loss, fatigue, and urinary problems, it’s a sign of hormonal imbalance as well.

Factors such as poor nutrition and stress can be causative factors or exacerbate many of these symptoms. With the proper nutritional support, you can bring your body back into balance and be free of the unpleasant symptoms of PMS, peri-menopause, menopause, and andropause.  When your hormones are in balance, you feel great, look vibrant, have abundant energy and wellness, and have a healthy sex life.  This is the way you were meant to be and feel.
