There is a silent, public health epidemic occurring. Largely unrecognised and ignored by conventional medicine, hormonal imbalance effects 85% of women. Most women suffer from some degree of hormonal imbalance. Due to this fact, hormonal imbalance is considered a ‘normal’ part of every woman’s life, destined to suffer in silence. How can a health condition affecting millions of women be ignored? Hormonal imbalance affects more people than diabetes, heart disease and cancer put together, yet a correct diagnosis and effective treatments are rare.
Hormonal imbalance is considered a taboo subject. Too dangerous to discuss for fear of repercussions and women feel too embarrassed to talk about the way they are feeling. Hormonal imbalance suffers the same public stigmatism as depression and mental health issues. Hormonal imbalance has very real physical mechanisms causing the symptoms and is not just another misunderstood mental health issue.
Symptoms of erratic mood swings, emotional instability, depression, anxiety, irritability, teariness, and anger coupled with physical symptoms of pain, cramping, bloating, flushing, acne, weight gain, aches and fatigue are affecting millions of women’s lives on a daily basis. These symptoms are contributing to marriage and relationship breakdowns, disharmony in the home and work environments, increased sick days and general discontentment with life.
The body does not create symptoms by accident. It creates symptoms as a coping mechanism for deeper imbalances. Symptoms of hormonal imbalance are not normal and need not exist in a balanced, healthy individual. Women for decades have simply accepted hormonal symptoms as part of ‘being a woman’. Women do not have to suffer from hormonal imbalance and there are very real and effective complementary medicine treatments addressing to cause of the problem and not just the symptoms.
