Hormone Therapy: Correcting Hormonal Imbalance

Hormone therapy can refer to a variety of treatment methods used to address hormonal imbalances. These imbalances are very common in today’s world; we are exposed to hormones through food and water, we have more stress than ever before and our foods are often nutrient deficient. All of this can impact your health.

That’s because a hormone is a chemical messenger in the body. These messengers control most major bodily functions: from basic needs like hunger, to complex systems like reproduction, and even things like emotions and mood. Estrogen and progesterone, thyroid hormone and cortisol are the most commonly tested and talked about hormones; however, there are many hormones in the body, all with a complex role.
