In this episode I dive into the 5 things I wish I knew sooner about hormones. Newsflash! Hormonal imbalance isn’t the problem. It’s the result of an underlying issue. And you’ve got to find that underlying issue to repair the imbalance properly.
Firstly, Hormonal imbalance is NOT normal. Not at 20, not at 30, not even at 40 or 50. It’s not a ‘getting older’ thing. Don’t let your doctor tell you otherwise.
Secondly, the Pill is not the solution. Sure, there are supplements you can take to improve your hormonal balance, but the Pill is NOT the end all be all solution.
It might ‘regulate’ your symptoms for a period of time, but you’re also shutting off your natural hormones, which can lead to more issues in the future.
What you eat (or don’t eat) matters.
A diet high in processed foods, caffeine, alcohol, sugar and low in the micronutrients, vitamins, and minerals found in fresh fruit and veggies can throw your body out of whack and cause your hormones to go wonky.
Managing stress is KEY. Once stress is managed all these great things can happen: better blood sugar balance, loss of body fat and stubborn belly fat, reduced cellulite, better muscle mass, reduced cravings, and better sleep.
If 19 year old me had known all these things, I can’t even imagine how differently things would have gone.
However, now that I know better, I do better, and I teach my clients to do the same.
