Hormone imbalance is one of the most common causes of feeling “less than good”.
Proper functioning of your hormones depends on the delicate orchestration of a number of key lifestyle factors. When your hormones are in balance, you feel great—energetic, clear headed, strong and joyful. But, when your hormones get out of balance, the opposite is true, You just don’t feel quite right.
You may be suffering from adrenal fatigue, thyroid imbalance, autoimmune disease, digestive problems and a host of other symptoms. Plus you’re at higher risk for hormone related cancers — breast, prostate, ovarian and uterine.

Score one point for each positive answer. Score an additional point for each symptom that’s moderate to severe in intensity or you experience it frequently.
**If your score is 20 or higher, you most likely have a hormone imbalance that needs to be addressed ASAP.
**If you scored between 10 and 20, you are likely suffering from a hormone imbalance that’s interfering with your
quality of life.
**If you scored between 5 and 10, your hormone imbalance is mild and should be addressed to prevent it from getting worse.
