What Worked For Me

From my own personal experience, a 30-day nutrition program worked wonders for my PMS.  Especially relevant for balancing my own hormones has been weight loss and intermittent fasting.  For years I suffered from excruciating pain.  Since finishing our nutritional cleansing program I hardly feel any pain.  This is one of the many reasons I am sharing this program with you all.

Health Tips To Balance Hormones

Eat anti-inflammatory foods including; healthy fats, turmeric, and ginger.

Cruciferous vegetables may be effective for balancing hormones; broccoli, cauliflower, kale and dark leafy greens.

Enjoy fruits which are low in fructose including; berries, apple, oranges, grapefruit, cherries, and pears.

Balance your blood sugar levels.  My ebook Wellness From Your Plate explains everything about blood sugar levels.  I think it is really important for vitality, weight loss, and healthy aging.

Support your nervous system by eating foods high in B vitamins and magnesium including; oats, nuts, and seeds.

Increase whole grains including; quinoa, unpolished brown rice, millet, and legumes.

Onion and Garlic – they contain sulfur compounds which help remove toxins and free radicals.

Green Tea contains catechins and flavonoids that may be protective against estrogen-dominant breast issues.

Grass-fed, organic and hormone free meat contain fewer residues of oestrogenic hormones and antibiotics.

Drink 2 liters of filtered, natural mineral or steam-distilled water and lots of herbal teas.

Foods To Avoid

Soy, alcohol, inflammatory foods, and caffeine.  Especially relevant is avoiding any foods you may be intolerant to.

Lifestyle Tips

Make a point of committing to your health.  Find the time daily to exercise.  Walking and yoga work effectively for balancing my hormones.  Reduce your exposure to estrogen.  Oestrogen may be found in fertility drugs, hormone replacement therapy, pesticides, plastics and the lining of tin cans.  In conclusion, be aware that painkillers and antibiotics may damage your liver and destroy the healthy bacteria in your gut.  Consequently leading to ‘leaky’ gut which increases allergic sensitivity and a weakened immune system.
