Treat the hormone imbalances at the root of disease with this six-week intensive program designed by a Yale-trained, board-certified family physician, women's health expert, and author of the groundbreaking bestseller The Adrenal Thyroid Revolution.
We are in the midst of a global health crisis. Thirty percent of women are suffering from PMS, PCOS, endometriosis, infertility, insulin resistance, thyroid problems, uterine fibroids, and breast cancer. Tens of millions of women are taking pills to alleviate pain, mood, and blood sugar disorders; birth control prescriptions for symptoms ranging from acne to autoimmune conditions; and hormone replacement medication which can have serious–even fatal–consequences. Studies have found that American girls are entering puberty much earlier—some as young as seven—than previous generations, which can have serious consequences for their long-term health. In addition, one in eight women seek fertility treatments every year. All of these are symptoms of an epidemic—hormone imbalance—that is wreaking havoc on women’s health and their lives.
But women don’t have to suffer any longer. A specialist in women’s health, Dr. Aviva Romm, has developed a 6-week hormone-balancing program to heal the underlying root cause of these painful symptoms and debilitating diseases.
It’s not just the female hormones estrogen and progesterone–thyroid hormones, adrenal hormones, gut balance, detoxification systems, stress response, and insulin can also be out of balance and it's up to our hormones to be the messengers. In Hormone Intelligence, Dr. Romm shows us the ways our innate wisdom about hormones has been clouded and how to get back in touch with the most powerful signaling system in your body. She lays out her program and the 6-pillars of hormone health, providing tests, tools, lifestyle changes, diet, and supplements to help every woman get her health back on track. With Hormone Intelligence women can finally be their healthiest selves and live the lives they want.
