If you've come to the realization that your hormones are out of whack, don't freak out. There's a lot you need to do for hormone maintenance — I prefer "maintenance" to "balance" — before you consider hormone replacement.
The very first step to keep in mind through this process is that there isn't one single fix-it. It's a journey, and your body is evolving. It's called aging. It can happen prematurely, or it can happen when it's supposed to happen.
It's the difference between living with illness to 75 or living vibrantly and with vitality to 95.
Which do you want?
Your body will never be the same from one day to the next… for the rest of your life, and that's OK. Before considering HRT, there are many things that you can do to balance your hormone profile.
