  • Poor dietary and lifestyle habits
  • Exposure to hormonal toxins and poor ability to detoxify
  • Hormonal imbalances e.g. reduced testosterone in men, low progesterone in women
  • Conditions such as PCOS, endometriosis, fibroids, low ovarian reserve
  • Previous history of abdominal surgery, miscarriage
  • High stress levels and low energy
