We are ruled by our hormones.  They dictate every action in the body from sleep to sex, food cravings to fat deposits, energy to emotions.  Hormones, which are made and released in cycles, are tightly regulated in a healthy body by a number of organs that are part of what is known as the endocrine system.  Unfortunately, a number of issues can disrupt these organs and hormone cycles; stress, environment, diet and lifestyle can all greatly interfere with hormone production, regulation and actions.  When any one of these organs or hormones is disrupted or diseased, the physical, mental and emotional fallout can be devastating and interfere with daily functioning.  Long-term dysregulation can lead to a variety of symptoms and conditions

Common symptoms and conditions associated with hormonal dysfunction include:
