Your body is wonderfully made of trillions of cells. Those cells all speak to one another through your hormones. Your mood, digestion, sex drive, weight, and digestion all depend on healthy hormones. As the days become colder and shorter, it can be a time of reflection spent sitting by the fire, sipping warm drinks, and spending time with family and friends.
But as beautiful as the winter months can be, they can also do a number on your hormones. If you feel more lethargic, irritable, down or depressed in the cold months, you're not alone. A shocking 20 to 35 percent of us either have seasonal affective disorder or the milder "winter blues."
Why? The answer lies in your hormones.
