Yes, it's your HORMONES!



A common concern that I frequently hear is, "I think I have a problem with my hormones."


Many times, the implication is that there is an issue with female hormones (estrogen or progesterone) or male hormones (testosterone). While these are indeed common imbalances, they are the RESULT and not the CAUSE of most distress.


The imbalance of these hormones is often a result of two other major players in the hormone world—namely, insulin and cortisol.


Blood sugar problems result in a continuous roller-coaster secretion of insulin and cortisol. This ongoing disruption can, and will, negatively impact all sex hormones—estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone.


So yes, your trouble IS most likely your hormones, but not necessarily the ones you might think.


The primary culprits are insulin and cortisol. By managing these two, you can improve your health immensely.


And the best way to confirm this is by measuring them. Cortisol, insulin, estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are all easy to measure, and once you have the results, determining the course of action becomes straightforward.


Let me know if you need help doing this.
