Hormonal imbalances are not solely the realm of women. Men also suffer imbalances which can lead to prostate enlargement or Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia. Unwanted hormones enter our body through various sources: oral contraceptive pill, hormone replacement therapies, foods, medications, plastics, drinking water and other environmental sources.
Imbalances, in particular elevated oestrogen, have been linked to:
- menopausal symptoms
- cyclical mastalgia
- fibrocystic breast disease
- prostate disorders
