“I don’t feel like myself ” is a common complaint from women suffering a hormone balance in Dr. Cabeca’s office. They suffer wild mood swings: Irritable and snappy in the morning, depressed when the workday ends, and then anxious as bedtime approaches. Happiness rarely comes, and they can’t recall the last time they felt exuberant joy or bliss. But when it comes to your mood, willpower and determination don’t cut it. Your hormones run the show. They’ll take your emotions wherever they see fit, often at the expense of your health and happiness . One physician told one of her patients “it’s just normal for women your age to feel this way.” Well, while it may be “normal” it’s not ok and can be fixed! Dr. Cabeca offers a far better solution that doesn’t require prescription drugs, powering through negative emotions, or any sort of emotional struggle. Starting at the end of your fork she shows how to fix these imbalances to feel better fast.
