The Hidden Hormone Disruptor In Your Foods

The Hidden Hormone Disruptor In Your Foods

The foods you consume on a daily basis can do one of two things. They can provide the nutrition needed for gut health, growth, detoxification, energy production, hormone and neurotransmitter synthesis as well as overall bodily health and function. Or your foods can cause toxicity in your body, lead to inflammation production and therefore contribute to hormone imbalance, among many other health complications.

First things first, I will always encourage a diet based around whole foods. Eliminating the processed trans-fat, preservative laden, sugary so called ‘foods’ and instead building the diet up with loads of fresh vegetables, some fruits, nutritious olives, olive oil, nuts, seeds, coconut products and ethically raised animal products.  Fermented foods and broths are also encouraged as a part of a nourishing diet for hormone health.

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.

How Oestrogen Dominance may be Upsetting your Health

How Oestrogen Dominance may be Upsetting your Health

It’s the week before your period and your PMS is in full swing, with an irritable, snappy and sensitive, cry-at-the-drop-of-a-hat, snap-at-someone-for-saying-hello, whirl wind of crazy emotions. You have swollen, tender breasts and you start to dread the upcoming chronic cramping and heavy flow you all to regularly suffer from.

This is a story I have unfortunately heard repeatedly from female patients who seek my help as a Naturopath. This is the story of Oestrogen dominance.

WHAT IS OESTROGEN

Oestrogen refers to three different hormones which allow endometrial cells (cells lining the womb) to multiply, in preparation for pregnancy.  Oestrogen is the sex hormone responsible for the development of the breasts, growth of the uterus and as the skeleton matures, the characteristic womanly curves, in a girl who is going through puberty. Together with other hormones, Oestrogen helps to regulate the menstrual cycle.

Foods that may be disrupting your Oestrogen levels

Foods that may be disrupting your Oestrogen levels

 

Oestrogen plays a special role for a woman, as it governs your physical, emotional and mental wellbeing. Known as the feminine sex hormone, oestrogen governs the bodily changes experienced as your mature from a girl into a woman at puberty and following this event, increased levels are produced by the ovaries (and some from your adrenals) each month to initiate the ripening and release of the fully matured egg at ovulation. In pre menopausal years oestrogen is the driving force behind womanly characteristics and also plays a cardiovascular protective role in your body.

Although oestrogen is required for your overall health and wellbeing, levels can build up in your body and quickly cause imbalance. With either heightened oestrogen production, oestrogen mimicking substances, potent oestrogen receptor activity, sluggish liver metabolism and/ or recycling of oestrogen back into your system due to poor gut health, a condition...
