The Female Hormonal Symphony-do you need a tuneup? was the topic Dr. Gary discussed on Monday night May 17th. He discussed many ways to identify where the imbalances are, and natural, holistic therapies that can be very effective in balancing the body and getting the systems back “in tune”.
With over 38 attendees present, there was lively discussions, exchanges of information, and many questions and answers. After the lecture, the discussions continues as we all moved from the lecture room to the wellness center.

Then the need to have balance between the adrenals, thyroid and female hormones for a woman to feel balanced was addressed. Many times, there may be symptoms that seem like a female hormone imbalance, but the true imbalance may be the adrenals or thyroid.
Stress, diet, lifestyle, and/or quality of sleep can affect the hormonal symphony.
Women who experience hot flashes, night sweats, sleep issues, irritability, decreased libido, and/or weight gain, especially around the waistline, need to determine which system is out of tune.
