A Simple Recipe For Detox, Hormone Balancing & Anti-Ageing Benefits

 

I just love the time of year when I crave warming spices and reach for them more often, to create nourishing dishes in the kitchen. As my spice section of the pantry has been getting a recent workout, I wanted to share a simple recipe that you can incorporate into your day to keep you warm over the cooler months, plus bring you an abundance of health giving properties. 

Use Food As Medicine 

Introducing you to my Sunshine Paste, based on the spice of turmeric which boasts an abundance of incredible health benefits.

From the ginger family, turmeric's active ingredient called curcumin is responsible for the yellow colouring and healing properties with the body.

The powerful liver protective and detoxification properties of this spice are enhanced due to its ability to increase glutathione levels (the body’s master antioxidant), therefore plays a powerful role in enhancing healthy hormone metabolism. Bye bye Oestrogen dominance

How To Support Your Liver When Celebrating

How To Support Your Liver When Celebrating

It’s that time of year where your calendar is full with social outings and celebrations over fine food and often an abundance of alcoholic bevvies. Christmas is a time to relax and be merry and this may mean letting your hair down…a little too far and consequently upsetting your liver health.

Your liver plays an important role in metabolising your hormones to allow excess levels to be safely removed from your body. If the detoxification processes in the liver (Phase 1 and Phase 2) are overwhelmed with filtering toxins (such as alcohol), your hormone health metabolism may be compromised.

Along with staying hydrated, here are my top ways to use foods to promote a healthy and happy liver and support your hormone health through the silly season.

Natural Ways To Prevent Period Pain

Natural Ways To Prevent Period Pain

Long term debilitating period pain is unfortunately something that presents to me in my private Naturopath practise far too regularly.  Discomfort in the lower abdomen, back and stomach, aching down the legs, even nausea, headaches, loose bowels and in the chronic cases, vomiting.

Also referred to a dysmenorrhoea, period pain can be caused by the contraction of your uterine muscles during menstruation, but is also a major symptom of conditions with abnormal tissue growth and inflammation, such as endometriosis and fibroids. According to the American Society for Reproductive Medicine in 2012, endometriosis may be a contributing factor in more than 20% of women with chronic pelvic pain. (1)

Does that time of month roll around and cause you to retreat and dose yourself up on pain relief? Read on to see if you can introduce some natural (and dare I say unconventional) ways to prevent your dreaded period pain...

Lifestyle Hacks For Healthy Hormones

Lifestyle Hacks For Healthy Hormones

Have you ever thought about how your lifestyle is effecting your hormone health? For a long time, I was so focused on getting my diet right, that I forgot about the important environmental impacts that were contributing to my health challenges.

I now cringe when I jump in a car with a ‘smelly tree’, hold my breath when I walk past someone with a strong perfume scent and avoid bright lights at night. Why? As I was writing my book: Balanced, The Natural Way To Healthy Hormones, it became very clear how disruptive environmental stressors can be to achieving regular periods, clear skin, relaxed moods and vibrant energy levels.

Where should you start? Right here, with my powerful guide to encourage an environment that supports healthy hormones for you and your loved ones.
