Hormones are chemicals that harmonize different functions in the body by carrying messages through the blood stream to the organs, skin, muscles and tissue. These messages tell your body what and when to do things. Hormones and the tissues that release them make up the endocrine system. These hormones control many body processes such as your mood, sexual function, metabolism, reproduction, sleep cycle and many more.

What is a hormone imbalance?
A hormone imbalance occurs when you have too much or too little of one or more hormones in your body. In many cases, having a slight imbalance in either direction can cause major changes to your body and leave you feeling uncomfortable in your own body. Some hormone imbalances may be temporary while others can be chronic. In many cases, hormone therapy can assist in giving you the balance your body needs to stay physically healthy.
