Swollen tummy, husband driving you crazy, trouble sleeping… how many things have you put down to your hormones? I know I have! My own personal journey into insanity led me to eventually reclaim my health and balance through bio-identical hormones. A year or so after the birth of my son, I was experiencing some pretty severe symptoms such as headaches like a tight headband, the water retention of a whale and foul moods leading up to my cycle. I just thought it was a woman’s ‘lot’ post pregnancy. It wasn’t until I took my son to our local homeopath and happened to mention to her how rotten I felt. She explained (with a massive dollop of empathy) that life didn’t have to be that way. Several simple tests later, it was confirmed that my hormones were off the richter scale. It all started to make a lot of sense!
I wasn’t convinced at first that a cream could restore order to my world but after around six weeks, I was already feeling the benefits. I didn’t realize how unwell, both physically and mentally, I had become, until I was on the road to recovery. In honor of all those women out there currently suffering from the symptoms of hormonal imbalance, we bring you an interview with Dr. Jan Toledano of The Marion Gluck Clinic, World Leading Specialists in Hormone and Sexual Health (his and hers).
