Apr 16, 2021
Hormonal Health is so Important
Have you ever had horrible periods, hormonal acne, mood swing, or chronic fatigue? These can all be symptoms of a hormonal imbalance.
A handful of years ago, all of this happened to me. When I did more research about what could be the root cause of all of this, imbalanced hormones came up a lot! I found out our hormonal health effects our overall health.
Hormonal health impacts your mood, detoxification, energy level, digestion, skin, and so much more! When studying for my Holistic Nutrition certification I found out even more about this and how to help my clients with balancing their hormones so they can gain their health back!
If you are struggling with these symptoms too, know you are not alone! Today I want to give you 3 tips to start implementing in your life to help balance out your hormones! As women, it's always good to loving on our hormones! Here is how you can do that daily!

1. Lower Stress Levels
Yes, good sleep and a whole food nutrient dense diet are super important but the most important thing to work on to balance hormones is stress management. One thing you can do daily is take an adaptogen. An adaptogen is an herb that helps the body adapt to stress. Ashwagandha is an amazing adaptogen that you can implement daily in a cup of tea!
2. Eliminate Toxic Chemicals in Your Body With Food
Certain chemicals in plastics and non-organic food can mimic estrogen in the body which can throw off our hormonal levels. We can help reduce this toxic exposure in many ways. One way is to make sure to buy organic when possible. Organic foods don't have agricultural chemicals that non-organic food has and it's really not as expensive as you may think.
Another way to do this is to limit the amount of plastic you use. You can use glass or stainless steel water bottles and also transfer your food from plastic containers to glass containers. When it comes to food, there are different foods that help detox the chemicals out of the body.
Adding in foods such as flax & sesame seeds, beans, cruciferous vegetables, and herbs such as sage and spearmint.
3. Getting Good Quality Sleep
This is important because not getting enough sleep can throw off your stress hormones (which leads back to number 1). To maintain healthy levels of hormones, good sleep is crucial. My biggest suggestion to getting better sleep is creating a nighttime routine. Our bodies LOVE routines. Here are a couple things that can help your body get into rest and repair mode to easier fall asleep.
Drinking a relaxing herbal tea such as lavender, Traditional Medicinal Nighty Night tea, lemon balm, or chamomile.
Instead of watching TV until you fall asleep, read until you fall asleep. The bright lights from the TV or our phones can keep us from falling asleep and staying asleep.
Try journaling. A lot of times our minds are running with a million different thoughts that keep us awake. It is so helpful to get those thoughts out of our head and on paper.
Taking these tips and applying them to your daily routine is a great start to balancing your hormones! Focusing on repairing the gut will also help greatly with hormonal balance. If you are looking for more to help with balancing your hormones, I have a Gut Health Daily Checklist for you here.
Improving your gut health is also very important for balancing hormones. The Gut Health Checklist will show you the basics to reduce bloating, lose weight, and improve hormonal health!
Lots of love!
