Getting to the Root Cause of Hormone Imbalance

When someone is having symptoms of hormonal imbalance, the first place I look is the digestive system (including the liver). This is where much of the hormones are produced, converted, and processed. There are so many things that can cause the endocrine system to go out of balance and I find that stress, poor quality foods, and the toxins we are exposed to are often the primary culprits to issues like leaky gut and liver congestion which often leads to hormonal issues.

Changing the diet, avoiding inflammatory foods, healing the gut, detoxifying the liver, and managing stress can do so much for getting to the root cause of hormone imbalance. This is is true for clients dealing with infertility, menopause, mood imbalances, anxiety, acne/skin issues etc.
