What are hormones?
Your hormones are essential for life and your health. They coordinate various functions in your body by carrying messages through your blood to your muscles, organs, skin and other tissues. In general, your hormones tell your body what to do and when to do it. When your body has too much or too little of one or more hormones, hormonal imbalance occurs. While some hormone imbalances are temporary, others can be chronic, or long-term.
Hormonal imbalances may occur at various stages in life and can affect both men and women. While hormone imbalances typically occur as we get older or during puberty or pregnancy, there are other factors that can lead to hormonal imbalances. Things such as high stress, lack of sleep, menopause or an unhealthy diet can cause an imbalance in hormones.
