Christian Bates at The Perrymount uses a fantastic health screening device which can help pin-point the correct nutrition to balance out these hormone imbalances. To learn more about an Avatar screening click HERE.

The lists below show all the signs & symptoms of different hormone imbalances. You will see there are a lot and they do overlap (somewhat). This is because all the hormones have a knock-on effect on to other hormones. It would be very unusual to have only one imbalance as the others jump in to compensate. These symptoms are a collection from many sources and text books collated by Dr Julia Hunter MD, so a big 'thank you' to her.

Feel free to print this page off and circle them to see how well you are doing. Look for a collection of symptoms to give a clue to your imbalance.
