How Does Nutrition Affect My Hormones?
Our current American diet is a top contributor to hormone imbalance. Sugar, starchy carbohydrates, fast food, and ultra-processed foods, lead to issues such as weight gain, mood issues, fatigue, accelerated aging and above all, increased disease risk.
The top 4 hormones which are frequently out of balance
When estrogen is dominant, you may experience anxiety, irregular periods, irritability, fibroids, and fibrocystic breasts.
Low progesterone can result in infertility, depression, insomnia, bloating, and shortened menstrual cycles.
When insulin becomes too high, it can cause symptoms of blurry vision, increased cravings of carbohydrates, headaches, and increased thirst.
When cortisol is out of balance, symptoms may include weight gain in face, increased belly fat, sleep issues, and extreme sensitivity.
How I Can Help You Balance Hormones
It all begins in the gut. When your gut lining and microbiome (communities of bacteria) are impaired, the gut bacteria that metabolize estrogens is affected. We will work together using lifestyle treatments, such as better sleep, gut-healing foods, exercise, stress management, probiotics and supplements where appropriate.
