Lately, many people have constipation, sexual problems, PMS problems, weight gain, sleep issues, brittle nails, fatigue, thin hair and such. This means imbalance in hormones.
The signs of this imbalance
Various types of imbalance
For example bad sleep means wrong work of adrenals so the glands are vital for making stress hormones. Fatigue with brittle nails and thin hair or weight gain and constipation means thyroid issues. PMS and menopause issues mean testosterone problems, estrogen and progesterone too. Weight gain and fatigue are all three.
Weight gain also means too much sugar and starch in diet. The intolerance to carbs is to blame and we all get insulin resistant from too much carbs.
