Balancing Hormones Naturally Through Nutrition
Recently, I did a free online workshop with Magdalena Wszelaki, a certified nutrition coach, regarding balancing hormones naturally through nutrition. I must say, it was very insightful. I know I have been eating well, but Magdalena explained there is a difference between eating well and eating right. Eating right is different for each individual based on their specific food reactions and symptoms. She stated that in order to get one’s hormones in balance, we must first consider the hormonal base. This consists of a regime of gut-healing, sugar-balancing, and liver-support. Once all 3 parts of the hormonal base are addressed, then we can specifically work on balancing the hormones including estrogen, progesterone, androgens, and thyroid.
Many women don’t realize that ALL of these can be caused by hormone imbalance:
Bouts of anger
Lack of motivation
Body aches & pains
Feeling “tired but weird”
Crying for no reason
Breast and ovarian cancer

I have posted a couple of articles below from www.hormonesbalance.com, which I found helpful and hopefully you will too. The first one speaks about the role of the liver in female hormone balance and provides some tips in improving your liver function. The second article talks about using ground seeds, specifically flax, pumpkin, sesame, and sunflower, at specific times in your menstrual cycle to balance your hormones naturally. It also addresses the seed rotation for peri-menopausal and menopausal women. I hope you find this information useful and can start applying it to your daily life in order to feel your BEST self!
