Hormones are often treated as masters of metabolism that need direct manipulation when out of balance. While there is a place for these treatments, hormones are not masters of anything but instead serve to communicate the metabolic milieu within the body so that whole body metabolism can be coordinated to serve the body's needs according to the abilities of its cells and tissues. That metabolic milieu is largely influenced by our environment, and our nutrition is a large share of that environment. This talk covers the role of protein, fat, carbohydrate, vitamins, and minerals in supporting a balanced hormonal milieu consistent with optimal health.
