The majority of people who follow us are health seekers. They want to heal their bodies naturally and balance their hormones without medications.
Now it’s not to say that there is never a need for taking medication in some cases, however a lot of people can actually heal their hormonal imbalances naturally without them.
So in my video today, I’m talking about the vital steps that you must have in place in order to achieve a natural hormonal balance.
Balance hormones without medication
- Healthy gut and hormones
Gut health plays a hugely important role in many aspects of our health – from our immune system, the absorption of nutrients from the food we eat, through to affecting our hormonal balance as well.
If you have an unhealthy gut, this could be due to a number of reasons, including:
- Eating a poor quality diet
- Consuming chemical additives in your food
- Drinking alcohol
- Taking antibiotics
- Experiencing high levels of stress
There are certain microbes that are capable of metabolising estrogens in our gut.
These help control the circulating levels of estrogen in our bodies and also how much estrogen is excreted.
If you’re not excreting the right amount of estrogen, this can lead to estrogen dominance, which can lead to it’s own problems.
Many people believe that in order to restore the health of their gut, they need to take lots of probiotics.
Although probiotics are important, gut restoration is actually a complex area that can involve detoxification, gut repar (i.e. leaky gut), specific dietary and lifestyle choices and more.
- Eating healthy fats and a health balance of omegas in your diet
Your main calorie intake should come from whole food carbohydrates and healthy fats should make up a smaller part of your calorie intake.
One of the big issues with the Standard Western Diet (SAD) is not just the amount of fats and unhealthy fats that people consume – butter, vegetable oils, and meat etc.
It’s also getting the correct omega 6 to 3 ratio that is hugely important.
When people have an unhealthy ratio of omega 6 to 3, with too much omega 6, then this will cause inflammation in the body, which can lead to disease, including heart disease.
The ideal ratio for what are known as the essential dietary fats (omegas 6 and 3) is 1:1 and up to 4:1.
You really must ensure that you get around 8 hours of sleep every night and make sure that you get to bed at a reasonable time.
So if you don’t do this and instead stay up late, and get too little sleep, then you are actively working against your body’s hormonal and overall health.
The stress hormone cortisol, for example, can increase the following day due to poor sleep.
Even your blood sugar levels can be adversely affected the following day after a poor period of sleep, so prioritising your sleep is a must do.
Knowing that your body heals and repairs itself during sleep and allows your immune system to function at its best, it really is a no brainer when it comes to getting your sleep pattern on track.
- Eliminate endocrine disruptors
Endocrine disrupters are basically chemicals that disrupt the hormonal balance in your body. BPA, lead, arcenic, mercury – these are just some examples of endocrine disruptors that can adversley affect your hormones.
Filtering your water well, avoiding fish or other contaminated sea foods, going organic as much as possible,using natural products – all these are important to help you minimise your exposure to toxins.
