On a day-to-day basis stress, inadequate diet, lack of exercise, poor sleep and exposure to environmental toxins can wreak havoc with our hormones resulting in significant imbalance. Other factors that are linked to dysfunction include insulin resistance & obesity, inflammation & oxidative stress, lowered immunity & infections, and genetics.
