Balance is key to staying healthy. Nowhere is this truer than in the world of hormones.
Do not think of your hormones separately but as interconnected parts of the whole that affect one another.
Our body is one whole system where everything is linked to everything else.
So improving your nutrition, reducing inflammation, fixing your gut, and getting rid of toxins all support normalization of hormone function, which translates into better mood, more focus, and enhanced brain function.
Balancing your hormones is a process, and sometimes it has little twists and turns, but by sticking
with it, you can figure out how to restore yourself to the vital, happy, alert, brilliant, and thriving being you are.
Hormones control our mood, digestion, energy, libido, metabolism, and how our skin looks.
If we don’t eat foods with the nutrients we need, our body cannot produce hormones correctly or maintain hormonal balance because it doesn’t have the building blocks to do so.
Whatever you’re eating is either helping hormonal production, or causing unpredictable imbalances.
The human body needs a balance of all three macronutrients, carbohydrates, protein, and especially fat.
Fat is one of the most crucial elements for hormonal balance. For years, we’ve been told that fat-free is good, while cholesterol and saturated fat are bad. This is a dangerous lie.
Healthy fat is the raw material that we need to produce and maintain proper hormone function.
Here’s why: hormones are produced using certain fatty acids and cholesterol, so if we’re missing these nutrients, hormone problems arise simply because the body doesn’t have the nutrients it needs to make them.
Our body needs certain fats for rebuilding cells and stabilizing hormones. This is especially important for the female reproductive system.
