Did you know that hormone imbalance can do more than just trigger weight gain, hot flashes, painful periods, and low libido? It can also cloud our judgment, contribute to brain fog, and make us somewhat forgetful. Imbalanced hormones can interfere with other mechanisms that optimize these functions, so while it's important to nourish our hormones, we really need a mind-body approach to healing and prevention.
Losing weight can seem like an uphill battle, and unfortunately, it's not you- it really is! Weight is its own endocrine organ throwing an extra wrench into messing with our hormones at any age, and any other general health concerns further makes our body really want to hold on. However, weight is usually a sign that things aren't quite right, physically and/or emotionally (think 'holding on').
