Warning! Too Much of This Hormone May Cause Damage

One of the things we do at our office at Robinhood Integrative Health is help people manage their hormone levels. We do that by giving people bioidentical hormones to help them correct their deficiencies. A majority of Americans, especially those over the age of 50, experience hormone deficiencies due to various reasons. The primary reason is the influence of age on hormone production. However, environmental factors, stress, diet and other nuances will cause hormone levels to fall. Now here’s the interesting thing.
