We women can be mysterious (aka, hard to read). At least that’s what we’ve been told by a few honest folks. We can be super friendly one week, and the next, we hardly speak to anyone. Three weeks out of the month, we can conquer the world, but there’s at least one week when everything is coming apart at the seams. Other times, our weight fluctuates or our energy level seesaws back and forth, we have painful periods or trouble getting pregnant, and sometimes our libido is not what it once was. All of these situations can be traced back to one root cause — hormones.
A Blog Series About Hormonal Health For Women
If you’re a woman of childbearing age, and you’ve seen yourself in any of the above situations, this series is for you. We’re exploring hormone health for pre-pregnancy, pregnancy, postpartum, and menopause — all from a natural perspective. We’ll be looking at what balanced and unbalanced hormones look like in each season of life, and we’ll also share some lifestyle practices (from diet, exercise, meditation, herbs, and more) that can help to gently ease your body into a more balanced hormonal state.
