Hormones Matter Top 100 Articles of 2014

Hormones Matter’s Top 100 Articles for 2014

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Happy New Year, everyone. What a remarkable year it has been. Hormones Matter reached its one millionth read in October and continues to grow month after month. Since inception, we’ve published almost 800 articles, many are read by thousands of readers every month. A million reads is a huge milestone for us. We’re a small operation with no funding run by passionate volunteers. We publish on a range of complicated, and often, not so pleasant health topics; topics that other journals would not consider addressing. Breaking through and finding readers in today’s heavily sponsored, content advertising and clickbait publishing environment is difficult, but we did it. Kudos to all involved.

Our success is thanks to our fantastic crew of writers, all volunteers, none professional, 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. Below are the articles and authors who made the top 100 list for 2014. Congratulations and thank you. Your work makes a difference.

Hundreds of articles didn’t quite make this list, but they are no less important. In fact, the top 200 articles on this site, each have over 1000 reads.

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.

Since we are run by volunteers and unfunded, feel free contribute a few dollars to cover the costs of maintaining operations. Crowdfund Hormones Matter. Every dollar helps.
