Excerpt from Erika Schwartz, MD, The 30 Day Natural Hormone Plan

“I made a short list of foods with serious potential to throw off your hormone balance and make you feel really crummy. . . . when you start feeling badly, when hot flashes return, or when you find yourself waking up at 5 A.M. drenched in a pool of sweat, turn first to these potential monsters in your diet.”
