5 Quick Tips to Balance Hormones



As you know, our hormones are involved in literally everything! If you're feeling a little off-kilter, moody, having more hot flashes or anxiety than usual and your doctor is giving you the "It's Your Hormones" line, here are a few ways to start balancing them out!


For 1 -2 Weeks:

  1. Decrease inflammation by avoiding alcohol processed foods, artificial sugars and sweeteners to avoid blood sugar swings

  2. lf necessary, consume smaller more frequent whole food meals throughout the day. This is helpful in avoiding a blood-sugar rollercoaster. Fluctuations in blood sugar cause more stress on the adrenal glands.

  3. Consume liver-nourishing foods like cruciferous veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, etc) to help detox old hormones and prevent them from cycling back into your bloodstream. These foods also contain a good amount of fiber, which estrogen binds to exits the body more easily.

  4. increase potassium-to-sodium ratio, potassium is essential to the adrenal glands by using quality electrolytes, sea salt, or lemon water.

  5. Consume good fats such as coconut oil and olive oil because our hormones are made from a fat molecule in the blood called cholesterol. Aim for Omega 3's found in flaxseed, wild-caught salmon, hemp, chia, and avocados.


Lifestyle Tips:

  • Find ways to decrease your stress and healthy outlets to keep your cortisol levels balanced. There is so much power in taking time to breathe, place our phones and computers to the side, & being immersed in the beauty of nature.

  • Detox Your Environment. Look at the products you're using and how fragrant they may be. The most important environmental products to detox are your home cleaning products, detergent, dish and hand soap, body lotion, and body wash.

  • If you notice that your bowels aren't moving regularly (1 -2 times/day) this may be a major part of your imbalances. We need to get rid of excess hormones regularly before they cycle back through our bloodstream!
