Hormones exert a powerful influence over all physical, intellectual and emotional behavior. Problems with weight, memory, sleep, digestion, blood pressure, high cholesterol, cravings, addictions, sexual dysfunctions, and problems associated with the immune system, are all influenced by the endocrine system. Endocrine problems lead to a wide spectrum of symptoms that in most cases can be reversed using natural methods. Blood testing alerts physicians to the exact hormone levels, allowing them to prescribe the correct treatment for each specific case, thereby increasing effectiveness. Here is a collection of information on specific hormones.
