Balance Your Hormones Naturally

Author: Rosie Millen

Tired all the time? Irregular periods? Unexplained weight gain? And sometimes you just wanna punch someone?!

 

  

Yep. These are all signs and symptoms that your HORMONES may be out of whack. And it’s a minefield I know. BUT I have put together my top 5 SENSIBLE tips to balance your hormones naturally.

 

Eat more healthy fats

Im talking omegas 3, 6 and 9. Your body needs various types of fats to create hormones, including saturated fat and cholesterol. So getting more fats such as coconut oil, avocados, salmon and flaxseeds on daily basis is a good starting point. One of my favourite products for doing just this is the Cleanmarine for Women's supplement which contains phospholipid omega 3 fatty acids PLUS B1, B2, B6 and D3 - an excellent combination of nutrients to regulate hormonal activity.

 

Go organic

The amount of toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis is frightening! Choosing organic foods such as meats, fruit and vegetables is a good way of reducing the load. Too many endogenous toxins can alter hormone production and activity.

 

Get it tested

Tests are a great way to identify which hormones specifically are playing games. Go for a full blood count and measure your thyroid, your adrenals as well as your sex hormones (oestrogen, progesterone, testosterone)

 

Increase your fibre

Soluble and insoluble fibre are both excellent for binding to excess hormones and pulling them out of the body. You can eat more vegetables for this as well as brown rice, quinoa, lentils and chickpeas. You can also supplement a soluble fibre called pysllium husk which acts like an intestinal broom.

  

Support your intestinal tract.

You can do this by taking some friendly bacteria. These naturally-occurring microorganisms help to promote healthy digestion and balance the bacteria in your gut as well as boost the immune system AND contribute to general health. I like the Udos Choice Super 8 Microbiotics formula and the digestive enzymes blend. Digestive enzymes are brilliant for anyone with a sluggish bowel.
