Did you know that 80% of women suffer from hormonal imbalance? I was shocked when I found this statistic. Perhaps, I am like most women that didn’t know or realize that it is the hormonal imbalance causing mood swings, hair loss, persistent weight gain, and irregular menstruation.
These symptoms seem to be mild and even tolerable, and because of our fast-paced lives, we become too busy to notice the signals our body is sending us. I find it concerning to know that the symptoms that we, women, take so lightly may lead to more severe conditions such as PCOS, infertility, breast cancer, endometriosis, and even depression.
