She is board-certified in Obstetrics and Gynecology, a teacher of the adjunct faculty at Touro University College of Osteopathic Medicine, and a mentor to medical students in her integrative medicine practice, The Gottfried Center for Organic Gynecology in Berkeley, California.

My mission is to help women feel sexy, vital and balanced from their cells to their soul."
Reclaim Your Hormonal Balance

There seems to be a universal story of mid-30s women, who are stress-crazed, overweight and increasingly frazzled. Their entire life, not just their hormones, seem to be out of balance. 

But now some good news: it's easier to get your hormones balanced than it is to live with the misery of your hormones being out of balance.

What is the source for your hormonal imbalance? The key to pinpointing the source is to evaluate your symptoms. 

There are three hormones that are often out of whack: cortisol, estrogen and thyroid. These are the hormones that you should be focusing on if your levels are too high or low. 

By using the three step protocol of hormonal therapy, diet and botanicals, you can finally have natural relief in no time.

Board-certified in obstetrics and gynecology, Dr. Sara Gottfried, reveals the best way for women to figure out if your hormones are in chaos.
