Balance Your Hormones Naturally

Author: Rebecca Carden July 05, 2015

When you’re suffering from PCOS it can be super frustrating to deal with the weight gain and skin flare ups that go along with it.

These are things that are visible to the outside world and they have a huge impact on our self esteem as a result.

When talking about how to balance your hormones naturally without med’s such as The Pill (do not even think about it- The Pill simply masks the symptoms whilst the problem continues to get worse), fat and gut health are your two BFF’s.

New research shows that gut health plays a huge role in hormone regulation. If you have leaky gut or a lack of probiotics lining your intestinal wall, it can cause hormone imbalance. Probiotics help your body produce certain vitamins that affect hormone levels like insulin. Supplements like digestive enzymes and probiotics can aid in repairing your gut lining, which in turn balance your hormones. Bone broth, kefir and fermented veggies are all amazing and tasty! ways to add more gut healing to your day.

Our hormones are made from fat. Fat and protein. So making sure you are eating a variety of foods high in good quality and the right kind of fat is key to keeping your hormones in check. Essential fatty acids are fundamental building blocks for hormone production, they also speed up your metabolism and promote weight loss. Our four favorite foods packed with healthy fats include: coconut oil, avocados, chia seeds and high quality salmon.

All four of those foods will be found in abundance via the food we make here at My Goodness Organics. We recognise the importance of the right fats in our diet and just how crucial they are to balancing our hormones naturally.

Steering clear of dangerous plastics and chemicals such as BPA and Phthalates which are endocrine hormone disruptors will also help your path to achieving balance.  Endocrine disruptors basically means that these toxins mimic our hormones and interfere with normal production causing all sorts of massive trouble. Cleaning up your home and personal care routine is going to support your liver and help it clear out some of those stored toxins.
