I want to change the conversation that we’re having about hormones. The truth is that if you figure out the reason why you’re feeling fat, cranky, overwhelmed, or don’t want to have sex, if you go to the root cause of your hormonal imbalances instead of jumping on a prescriptions that masks your symptom, you’re going to have a sustained benefit. You’re not going to be craving that wine, hearing jungle drums telling you that you need to eat chocolate, or calling your mom to tell her you’re still feeling like a stress case. It’s going to make your life so much better.

But first you must connect the right hormones with your symptoms. Ready?

If you have . . .

  • trouble losing weightmood-swings
  • bloating or fluid retention
  • voluptuous breasts and/or hips
  • abnormal pap smear
  • autoimmune conditions such as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis or lupus
  • mood swings, PMS, depression
  • pain between your big toe and second toe (the LV3 point in Chinese medicine)—as sign of liver stagnation


If you have . . .

  • sugar cravingssweets-cupcakes
  • difficulty with certain avalanche foods, such as chocolate or ice cream
  • high, low, or borderline blood sugar (fasting is normally 70-85 mg/dL)
  • trouble lasting longer than 3 hours between meals
  • a muffin top (waist > 35 inches in women, 40 inches in men)
  • exercise less than three times per week
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)—a problem with irregular periods, acne, increased hair growth, and sometimes infertility and/or cysts on the ovary?

You may have INSULIN RESISTANCE. This is the easiest hormone to reset: do it in less than 3 days, according to recent studies.

If you have . . .

  • trouble sleepinginsomnia
  • more than one cup of coffee per day (and giving it up seems outrageous)
  • anxiety or irritability
  • burn out
  • gut problems such as indigestion or ulcers
  • thinning bones
  • overeating when stressed

You may be struggling with CORTISOL RESISTANCE. You may want to kick the caffeine for 21 days, so that you can upgrade the relationship between the stress hormone, cortisol, and its receptor.

If you have more than two symptoms in any of these categories, you would benefit from The Hormone Reset Detox. Learn more right here. More than 5,000 women just like you have gone through the program, lost up to 15 pounds, dropped blood sugar 21 points, and decreased their waist by 4 inches. The best way to reset your hormones is with the way you eat, move, think, and supplement.

Bottom line: it’s easier to reset your hormones than to live with the misery of your hormones being out of whack.
