Common Hormone Imbalance Symptoms

 

Properly balanced hormones is a part of overall good health.  Below is a list of symptoms people have when their bodies have too much or too little of one type of hormone.  Bio-identical hormone replacement therapy can aid in decreasing and eliminating these symptoms by putting hormones back into balance within one’s body.  Contact Becca Walters for more information.
