I've been a teacher for the past sixteen years, first of English, then of art. Despite the fact that I don't have a medical background, I've had endocrine/hormonal imbalances for most of my life, and have done years of research and sought out many doctors for help in this area. As a result of this, I have found both insight and help into correcting these hormonal issues with a great degree of success. Yes, I've used myself as a guinea pig, so to speak, but at least my readers know that I have first-hand experience, and unlike some authors of hormone self-help books, there is no distance between me and my topics. With the help of a tremendously knowledgeable local doctor, I've come to truly understand the delicate hormonal cascade, and how the balancing act is nothing short of a miracle. If I can help others, as well as myself, through my research journey, then my time has been well spent.
