Hormones are chemicals released by the body that affect the way cells function, and they are the way one part of your body sends messages to another to stimulate metabolism, growth, moods, reproduction, sexual arousal, hunger, puberty, menopause, and even parenting. Hormones help with reactive situations, and send signals to allow the body to perform better during a crisis (e.g. the classic "fight or flight" response).

A hormone imbalance can affect your every day activities; from waking up, to eating, to attitudes, to exercising, and even back to sleeping. In one commonly understood example, menopausal symptoms are caused by the reduction of female reductive hormones as the body shifts into a non-reproductive state.
