04 Feb Not Sure Which Hormones Are Out of Balance?
Our hormones are extremely important components in our body and are responsible for chemically sending messages throughout our system. Our hormones are produced in our endocrine glands and travel around the body to help control your body’s different processes including your metabolism and your reproductive processes.
When your hormones are in balance, they can help your body function like it is supposed to. However, when your hormones are imbalanced it can cause a number of issues.
So, What is a Hormonal Imbalance?
When your hormones are imbalanced, you typically have too much or too little of a specific hormone in your body. Even the smallest of changes can have a serious impact on your entire body. Your hormones play an important role in your body and your health, which is why the slightest imbalance can cause some significant health issues.
