EPISODE – Mariza Snyder


Have your hormones been hijacked? Pollution in our air, chemicals in our food, synthetic estrogens in our beauty products, stress in our emotional lives—coupled with naturally fluctuating and declining hormonal levels as we age--leave women of all ages, even young ones, vulnerable to the consequences. 
Hormonal imbalance affects our mood, sleep, weight, energy and even cravings. And the tricky thing about it is that it often sneaks around in the background, wreaking havoc on your health, before you even know it’s there. As a result, doctors may dismiss your symptoms or attribute them to something else entirely, leaving you wondering what is really going on in your body and if you will ever feel normal again. 
Dr. Mariza Snyder and her new book THE ESSENTIAL OILS HORMONE SOLUTION [Rodale Books | February 2019 | $25.99] are here to help. With her expert guidance, readers can create hormone balance naturally, without taking hormones. The Essential Oils Hormone Solution offers a step-by-step program to reset the body through focused and deliberate changes in daily self-care rituals, aided every step of the way by high-quality essential oils.
