Hormone Intelligence: The Complete Guide to Calming Hormone Chaos and Restoring Your Body’s Natural Blueprint for Well-Being is written by Aviva Romm, a physician specialising in integrative medicine for women and children. Here she offers a comprehensive guide to understanding and managing hormonal health.
In this book she explores the complex network of hormones in our bodies and how various factors, including diet, stress, environmental toxins, and lifestyle choices, can disrupt hormonal balance. She provides insights into common hormonal conditions like PMS, PCOS, and menopause, and offers holistic strategies for restoring hormonal balance. These strategies include dietary changes, herbal remedies, and lifestyle adjustments.
The book blends conventional medical knowledge with natural and holistic approaches. Romm emphasises the importance of understanding the body’s natural rhythms and provides practical advice for women seeking to navigate hormonal issues with a more informed and integrative approach.
The key focus of Hormone Intelligence is empowering women to take charge of their hormonal health by understanding the intricate connections between their bodies, their environments, and their lifestyles. Romm’s approach is both empathetic and evidence-based, making the book a valuable resource for anyone looking to deepen their understanding of women’s hormonal health.
This is one of my favourite books on women’s hormones and one that like to dip into again and again, reminding me of the simple beauty and philosophy of functional medicine for women’s health. She beautifully ties together the main underlying causes of imbalanced hormones – nutrition, toxins, and stress – an approach that take with every woman that I work with.
