Thyroid—you might have a problem and not know it

If you have low thyroid, which is the most common thyroid problem, symptoms may be low energy, slow metabolism / weight gain, dry […]

What Every Woman Should Know About Hormones, part 4 of 4

Why do I get constipated or not lose weight on green smoothies? Part 2 of 2

So, “cleansing reactions” can happen two months or six months or even six years later.

So your sex drive isn’t what it used to be?
