Top 5 Women's Hormones Questions, Answered
Many of the traits we brush off as just part of being a woman might actually be symptoms
Moodiness, exhaustion, cravings…we’ve all experienced them at some point and may have even written them off as part of "being a woman" or "that time of the month." They could be... but maybe not, says Dr. Sara Gottfried, a Harvard-trained integrative physician. Some of the common ailments women convince themselves to deal with could actually be treatable.
Alert every man who’s ever given you a hard time for “PMS-ing”! Your moodiness could actually have a genetic root. “Your genes are inherited from your parents, and 50 to 80 percent of how the genes are expressed is determined by how you eat, move, supplement, sleep and think,” says Dr. Gottfried. A genetic test can help your physician determine if your diet and supplements are helping or hurting your mood.
