A Guide to Understanding Hormones and Thyroid Health
There is a crisis in women’s health today. The average age for puberty has dropped abruptly to 10 years of age. Endometriosis, one of the top three causes of female infertility, affects more than 5.5 million women. 75% of all women suffer with some premenstrual syndrome symptoms. 80% of all women have uterine fibroids (which lead to 170,000-300,000 hysterectomies annually). And dysmenorrhea—menstrual pain that interferes with day-to-day activities—affects approximately 40-70% of women of reproductive age. If you’ve visited your doctor for any of these reasons, it’s likely you’ve been given birth control pills to “even things out” or hormone replacement therapy. But is this really a solution?
The Female Body Blueprint by Josh and Jeanne Rubin takes the complex subject of hormonal balance and breaks it down into easy to digest information and action steps. By naturally decreasing the amount of estrogen in your body, increasing the amount of progesterone, and healing your metabolism, you’ll be well on your way to hormonal health at any age. Get back in balance by learning how to eat, sleep, exercise, and de-stress. They don’t teach this stuff in school…or likely in your doctor’s office. But these are the vital foundations that will make this women’s health crisis a thing of the past. Follow this blueprint and take back control of your health once and for all.
