What is Hormonal Imbalance and Its Signs and Symptoms?

Definition of Hormones

Our vital organs depend on the right balance of hormones, so the organ functions correctly. When our hormones are out of balance, it wreaks havoc on the body. Hormones are the body's chemicals that help vital organs to function correctly. Your blood circulation carries these hormones to various organs, essential for life and excellent health. These chemicals assist in the normal function of,

  • Metabolism
  • Growth/Development
  • Sexual Function
  • Sleep pattern
  • Reproduction
  • Mood

There are over 50 different hormones in the body controlling your body's processes. When there is a hormone imbalance, things do not work as they should.
