Please watch the video of the talk, it is only about 10 minutes long, but it is packed with great information about your hormones that IMPACT every woman.

Here is a summary of my talk.

  • The three hormones I talked about are Estrogen, Cortisol, and thyroid also called the Charlie’s Angel’ or ‘Three Big Hormones’ and they frequently drive hormonal imbalance leading to a myriad of uncomfortable symptoms.

  • They can create the perfect storm for some perimenopausal women is because they all start to affect each other.


  • Is nature’s Prozac, which helps your mood and keeps you on task

  • Levels can be high or low, which can result in similar symptoms

Symptoms of high Estrogen include:

  • Can lead to estrogen dominance

  • Weight gain/water retention

  • Breasts tenderness/cysts

  • Painful periods

  • Endometriosis

  • Mood swings

  • Anxiety/depression


  • A stress hormone responsible for hunger, cravings, digestion, blood pressure, sleep/wake pattern, physical activity, and your ability to deal with stress

  • Based on studies stress tends to be the root cause of most hormonal imbalance

  • Cortisol and adrenaline are produced by the adrenal glands

  • Keeps us alive by raising blood sugar & blood pressure, regulating inflammation

  • The main job is to keep blood sugar at a normal level


  • It produces two main hormones, thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), and these two hormones affect every cell in your body.
