A list of healthy foods that prevent hormonal
imbalances in women.
Women can often suffer with problems in the
body when their hormones are out of balance.

may get dry skin, depression, night sweats,
brain fog, insomnia, low libido and vaginal
dryness.
Whereas a woman who has too little estrogen
can have enlarged breasts, breast tenderness,
ovarian cysts, anaemia, PMS and aching in
the thighs and legs.

hormones, which are important chemical messengers
in the body.
