Hormones Matter Top 100 Articles of 2016
Happy New Year, everyone. We have another remarkable year under our belts. Hormones Matter continues to grow. To date we have published over 1000 articles that combined have received over 5000 comments.  Monthly our readership ranges from 70-100,000 views. Overall, we are quickly approaching 3 million views (2,860,420) and given that analytics was disconnected for two months this year, we may already have reached that number.

The hysterectomy and endometriosis articles continue to draw large crowds, demonstrating the great need for information in these areas of women’s health. Personal health stories remain popular and we see growing readership for topics related to migraines, mitochondria, and medication adverse reactions, including birth control.

Our success is thanks to a fantastic crew of volunteer writers who spend countless hours researching complex medical topics, making connections, identifying unconventional therapeutic opportunities, and bringing to light, what are often, invisible illnesses. Without these incredibly talented and compassionate individuals, Hormones Matter would not exist.

Before we begin the new year in earnest, let us take a moment to thank all of the writers of Hormones Matter.

Thank You Hormones Matter Writers.

Below are the articles and authors who made the 2016 top 100 list, followed by the Top 25 all-time favorites. If you haven’t read these articles, it’s time to do so. If you like them, share them and share our site so we can continue to grow. If you were helped by any of our articles, take a moment and send the writer a thank you note.

Since we are run by volunteers and largely unfunded, please contribute a few dollars to cover the costs of maintaining operations. Crowdfund Hormones Matter. Without reader support Hormones Matter could not exist.
