To have healthy balanced hormones there are a few key points to understand.
1st it's all about diet
2nd comes liver health
3rd are chemicals
The KEY point here is Diet First. Liver health and chemicals are the other two main players that disrupt hormonal balance. Essentially we need to have a clean out to balance our hormones naturally. Read on for The 3 BEST Tips for Natural Hormone Balance...
1. Improve Your Diet
First let’s get this clear eating for hormonal balance is a way of eating, it's NOT a diet. Diets DO NOT work; in fact, they only make things worse by further creating hormonal dysregulation and psychological issues around food. Many people I see, no longer trust their bodies or their ability to eat well, or be a healthy weight due to a combo of years of unsuccessful dieting, following diet fads and way too much “Dr Google”.
Please KNOW THIS: Just because a fad diet works for Sally it doesn’t mean it will work for you. This is because we all have different body types, metabolic types, nutritional requirements and deficiencies. There is no such thing as a one size fits all fad diet even though the creators of them claim that they are a “one stop fix all shop”. Fad diets are usually extreme and focus on one aspect of metabolism and if you do the wrong one you really can cause more harm than good. This is why I always start with the basics which is eating a whole foods diet. Once doing this for a few months you can then start tweaking it.
Another thing I often see is people taking supplements, hoping this will make up for a bed diet, This does NOT work! The first step is to clean up your diet. Supplements are only meant to be used to “supplement” a healthy, balanced diet.
