As a functional nutritionist, I help women to identify and address the root causes of their hormone and digestive symptoms. Say goodbye to fad diets, my mission is to empower you in your health and create change that sustains.
Today more than ever, people are talking about the importance of balanced hormones! They truly affect every aspect of our lives from sleep to metabolism to emotions and even our perception of the world around us. It is becoming increasingly popular to discuss balanced hormones, but I am seeing the discussion centered around supplements, trendy diets, and quick fixes. The truth is that hormonal balance comes from establishing nourishing foundations!
Unfortunately there are a few very common mistakes I see women make when dealing with a hormonal imbalance that can lead to some unexpected symptoms.
Although well intentioned, many women are chronically undernourishing and overexerting themselves. In fact, many “health” practices such as intermittent fasting and various forms of exercise can actually stress our nervous and endocrine systems, leading to hormone imbalances and unexplained symptoms.
Although this list may seem intuitive, I see women making these mistakes day in and day out. It can take some time and practice to avoid these, but once we establish intentional eating, exercise, and food relationship foundations, many symptoms can resolve and the body can achieve homeostasis! Remember the female body is intricate, complex, and requires safety for proper hormone functioning!
