For many, switching to a clean diet free from processed and high inflammatory foods will help jumpstart the weight loss process, but may not be enough to achieve individual goals. There may be obscure underlying factors leading to low testosterone, estrogen dominance and Erectile Dysfunction. Another factor that may be impeding proper hormones is chronic stress. When a person experiences stress, the body releases a flood of cortisol hormone and levels remain elevated with continuous stress.
