What are the causes of hormone imbalance in women?
Hormone imbalance in women can occur as part of the natural aging process in women and may reflect genetic predispositions for certain conditions. However, hormone balance is affected by the food we eat, exercising and the amount of stress we experience.
What is the endocrine system?
