Healthy Hormones, Naturally
with Nyree Banks from Health Naturally
Living with your hormones out of whack can be totally consuming and interfere in your quality of life. This super informative talk will give you a basic understanding of your hormones and their cycles, how and why these hormones can go off track and all of the different ways this can affect you throughout the years. We will also discuss ways to test your hormone levels and which one may be better for you and which ones aren’t worth doing. We will go through naturopathic, nutritional and herbal ways of balancing hormones safely and effectively and there will be plenty of time for questions and chats.
