I am confused to say the least.  On the infomercial there is one recipe, in the book is another recipe, online is another recipe.  I have been suffering with hormonal imbalance since i got my freshman 15.  I am at my whits end.  My test come back normal, but I have acne on my chin and hot flashes.  I am not certain what to buy or mix together for the smoothie that will balance my hormones.  The book has the same recipe for men and women.  On the infomercial the host states that women and men need different nutrients.  Please clarify this recipe so I can be on my way to balancing my hormones.  In addition, I would like a recipe for weight loss for homonal women.  Thank you!!!

Apologies for the confusion. The book recipe was a misprint. The recipe in the video includes arugula, raspberries, avocado, goji berries and water. Arugula is a bit too powerful for my liking so maybe sub another green like Swiss chard. Hormone balancing depends on what your hormones are up to currently...so there are several different approaches. Therefore, I cannot provide you with specifics, but more general info and some great resources to look further into: Dr. Sara Gottfried (http://www.saragottfriedmd.com/) Dr. Christiane Northrup (http://www.drnorthrup.com/) Their approach is designed to balance hormones, increase energy, and lose weight (if you need to). Hormone balance is about clearing out the gunk and getting body to work like it should. In the meantime, here's some tips from Dr. Northrup: http://www.foodmatters.tv/articles-1/the-hormone-balancing-food-plan-for-women In addition, there are some herbs and superfoods that are thought to help in this area - do some research to know which might be appropriate for you! These are best used when prescribed by a naturopath or herbalist as while they're all generally regarded as incredibly safe, hormones are complicated little guys.
