This post was triggered by reading an interview today with Suzanne Somers and Dr. Joseph Mercola.
And I plan to read her latest book "Tox-Sick" soon.
Teenage hormone imbalance has a great deal to do with teen weight gain or weight loss.
Symptoms of hormone imbalance include the following:
- weight gain
- poor concentration
- too big/too small appetite
And there are more subtle symptoms too like food allergies and painful digestion.
But seeing as we're ballet dancers here, let's focus on teen weight gain. Is it because of:
- starchy diet
- not enough good protein
- not enough salads and raw veggies (organic!)
- not enough filtered water
- bad sleep from all of the above and anxiety
Get a hormone balance test!
I am not going to explain how hormone balance is related to organic foods, good proteins and good sleep, because I would have to write a book - and Suzanne already did.
Here is the transcript of the Suzanne Somers interview and it's a great read for teens with weight gain or hormone imbalance issues and their sisters and moms too!
If you are a dancing teen, young adult or pre-menopause dancer who thinks you may have a hormone imbalance, please read the interview and get the book "Tox-Sick by Suzanne Somers".
I have been through this situation and I guarantee that you will save yourself years of struggle and grief and ill health if you understand the way to balance your hormones with diet and perhaps some nutritional supplements.
To your health!
