Are Hormones behind Jolie-Pitt Split?
Looks like the biggest love story of all time behind Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton is now over. Who knew the idyllic union of film giants Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt would end. Some say it was affairs, others say it was parenting styles, Jennifer Aniston says it is karma – I say it is hormones. When Angelina Jolie opted to have her breasts removed, because she carried the BRCA gene, and then the following year elected to have her uterus and ovaries removed, it is little wonder that any or all of these procedures would throw Jolie into serious hormone decline. As we all know, it was a grand Hollywood romance that made its presence felt far and wide, from the red carpet to refugee camps in the world’s trouble spots. It was chronicled in lavish photo spreads in high-end fashion magazines and in paparazzi shots that appeared in the tabloids and on the gossip sites, as if to underscore the couple’s mythic status. But these people are still human with human frailties and human bodies. Unless hormones are balanced in a very expert and specific manner, the symptoms of hormone imbalance can be very widespread. Moodiness, depression, anxiety, poor sleep, weepiness, low self-esteem, emotional outbursts plus a loss of well-being – just to name a few! Both of these accomplished people will regroup after such a life-change, as will their children. But having a skilled practitioner on hand to balance hormones could be the cornerstone of happiness ahead – at least for Ms Jolie!
