Meet estrogen (or Oestrogen for my North American friends), a females dominate hormone. This hormone controls, contributes and governs a lot of action within the body, including supporting a healthy menstrual cycle. While it’s our most dominate hormone it’s also often our most imbalanced hormone too.
In this episode I’m joined by Functional Nutritionist Tara Thorne to clearly guide us through an understanding of what exactly Oestrogen / Estrogen is and just how we can achieve a healthy hormone balance.
