Conventional medicine often fails us when it comes to hormonal imbalances. Hormones aren’t commonly tested, and many of the symptoms of imbalance are written off to aging and never addressed. Our hormones are like a symphony, with each one acting as a specialized instrument to keep our bodies in tune.
