Hormones are not just a female problem – period! So, PMS, fertility and menopause are on the agenda, but so are: depression, anxiety, stress, foggy thinking, memory lapses, weight gain, weight loss, immunity, bone health, stamina, energy … hormones affect us all physically, mentally and emotionally.
Hormones are your body’s chemical messengers, in other words they are signals for glands and tissues to do their work and they work as a system, not in isolation. This means, that if you’re stressed, you can find yourself either reaching for a chocolate bar, a cake or a cookie (or perhaps all three!) to give you energy because your high stress hormone has made your blood sugar drop; or, if it’s the end of the day, you could be reaching for a glass of wine or a couple of beers to help you unwind. Both of these activities are a form of self-medication: a response to make a somewhat unpleasant hormone action feel better.
So, if you wonder if your hormones are hijacking your life you might be right because hormones can sabotage your efforts to eat more healthily, to take more exercise and to stop feeling angry, stressed, depressed or anxious.
Hormone health is a truly holistic approach that supports you in your efforts to be the best person you can be!

Why do I say clients and not patients?
I use the term client because I work in partnership with my clients to educate and inform them of aspects of health and well-being that are relevant to them, in a way that works for them. Patients are, by definition, passive as they only receive medical care or treatment.
