3 Food Tips to Bring Your Hormones Back to Balance

The prevalence of hormonal imbalances is constantly on the rise, affecting more and more women who are not even aware of it.  They are faced with different health issues, such as and lack of energy, problems concentrating, sleepless nights, acne, cramps, PMS, and eating junk food.

Common Signs of Hormone Imbalance

  • Persistent acne
  • Memory fog, hindered learning ability and memory
  • Constant hunger
  • Digestive problems like irritable bowel syndrome. bloating, and constipation
  • Constant fatigue
  • Mood swings and depression
  • Weight gain
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Hot flashes and night sweats

  • Vaginal dryness

Contrary to popular belief, not all women are “hormonal” and not all types of bloating, cramps, or fatigue are normal.  Whatever the cause of these issues, these symptoms are definitely not normal.  They seek attention and need to be dealt with properly and on time.

Unfortunately, most people take these signs for granted and instead of looking for the underlying cause, they turn to caffeine, sleeping pills, midol, or birth control pills to get temporal results.

Stop Masking the Problem and Eliminate It from the Core

Restoring hormonal balance doesn’t happen at once, but is rather a day-by-day journey which requires persistence, strong will, and determination.

This article gives three tips on how to begin this hormonal journey and achieve hormonal balance in an all natural way.

1. Watch Your Nuts And Seeds Consumption

Seeds and nuts often contain detrimental omega-6s in their content, which makes you more susceptible to certain diseases.  They also tend to mimic high-estrogen levels, causing acne, cramps, and fatigue. To stay on the safe side and keep your hormones in check, opt for healthier varieties like hazelnuts and hemp seeds.

2. Avoid Soy

Soy is actually more detrimental than beneficial, particularly for women.  Soy is genetically modified and tends to mimic high estrogen balance, disrupting the balance of your hormones.  It also contains phytates, compounds which interfere with the absorption of minerals in the body.

3. Magnesium Supplement

Magnesium deficiency is extremely common these days, due to the modern lifestyle which includes excess sweating, alcohol intake, and consumption of phytates-rich foods.  Lack of magnesium is associated with headaches, dizziness, fluid retention, bloating, low blood sugar, and sugar cravings.
