Your hormones are responsible for how you think, feel, and look. A woman with balanced hormones is sharp and upbeat with a good memory. She feels energetic without caffeine during the day, falls asleep quickly, and wakes refreshed. She is blessed with a healthy appetite and maintains a desired weight with a good diet. Her hair and skin glow. She feels emotionally balanced and responds to stress with grace and reason. When menstruating, her menses come and go with no or little PMS. She has an active sex life. She can maintain a full-term pregnancy. When entering peri- or menopause, she slides into a new phase of life with ease.
If that doesn't describe you, your hormones are imbalanced. Don't despair. You are not alone. Millions of women experience hormonal imbalance. The good news is, you can rebalance your hormones naturally and resolve your symptoms.
Let’s get you started….
We will show you how you can set yourself up for a foundation to start feeling the benefits. This program was designed to help your digestion, aid your liver in detoxification, and keep your blood sugar balanced—all resulting in happier, more balanced hormones.
What the day will look like…
Upon waking: Drink apple cider vinegar or lemon juice.
Start the day increasing your stomach acid and priming your digestion for absorbing the maximum amount of nutrients from the food you are about to eat.
Breakfast: Eat a PFF (protein, fat, and fiber) breakfast.
Eat savory breakfasts. It's only in Western countries that we often eat the quantity of sugar that amounts to a dessert serving.
After breakfast: Sip tulsi tea + snack
This ancient ayurvedic tea is a wonderful tonic and adaptogen that will help nourish your adrenals.
Lunch: cruciferous and detoxifying.
Cruciferous vegetables include broccoli, broccoli sprouts, kale, collard greens, bok choy, arugula, mustard greens, cauliflower, and cabbage. They help the liver to detoxify us from metabolized ("used up") hormones that can cause harm (like fibroids, breast lumps, thyroid nodules, PMS and fertility struggles)
Dinner: Keep things light and early.
Keep dinner light and early. Try not to eat after 6:30 p.m. Giving yourself time to digest and you won't result in a restful, deep, and refreshing sleep.
Herbal tea before bed
which will support your liver in the detoxification process, helping stabilize hormones. My favorites are:
• Fresh ginger with a slice of lemon (including the rind), which soothes the gut
• Dandelion root tea, a liver tonic
• Fennel tea, supports good digestion
• Chamomile and mugwort, helps calm the body before bed
• Ashwaganda latte an adaptogen that can help you fall asleep
