5 Ways to Balance your Hormones and Improve your Health

Alright loves let’s dive into this topic! I want to share with you 5 ways to improve hormone balance and your overall health.


1. Remove processed foods from your diet.

Ultra processed foods are everywhere and removing this from your diet is the best thing you can do for your health. Check your grocery list and your pantry and take inventory of the items such as cereals, cereal bars or quick heat up items.

Aim mostly for foods without a label or have less than 5 ingredients. This simple step will greatly help in balancing your hormones and actually support the essential nutrients you need to be in alignment.


2. Take synthetic hormones off your plate.

Choose grass-fed, organic, local meats and dairy without added hormones. Hormones and antibiotic use from food can create more painful periods, a heavier flow, more cramping, moods swings, and even cysts. Notice how this effects your monthly cycle.




3. More fresh fruits and vegetables.

More plants in the diet support more quality nutrients, aid in detoxification and protect against inflammation and DNA repair. Fruits and vegetables supply fiber, vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients that may help to reduce symptoms of PMS.


4. Pick your proteins.

As you may already know, everyone has their own unique Bio-individuality. This plays a role in the protein that you eat and generally crave and gravitate towards. There are many varieties of protein out there, most popular being meats, beans and soy prodcuts. When choosing a protein, go for quality grass-fed, local, organic or hormone free when possible. Experiment with a more plant based diet and see how this effects your monthly cycle and mood.




5. Getting real with fats.

Good fat, bad fat? Eating fat does not just make you fat. Choosing to eat high quality fats such as olive oil, avocados, nuts and seeds, and small amounts of organic butter and coconut oil. Including these kinds of fats to your recipes are also great for the gut microbiome. Fat is your friend and not your foe. Fat is an essential component of hormone production and balance.
