5 Tips to Balance Hormones Naturally! [BIO Podcast: Ep 287]
Beauty Detox is all about providing you with completely natural lifestyle choices to nourish, strengthen, beautify and balance your hormones. I am dedicated to showcasing the most natural and wholesome ways for you to discover your ultimate ways to balance your hormones naturally and live a life that is stress-free.
I believe it is always best to look to nature and lifestyle first to help with getting our bodies back into balance. That is why you will find that the tips I have for you here do not come from a drug store, nor do they cost an extreme amount that is out of reach.
Tip 1: Maintain a Healthy Weight
Excessive adipose (fat) tissue can act as an endocrine organ, producing more estrogen in the body. By maintaining a healthy weight, your body is not stimulated to overproduce certain hormones.
Include phytoestrogens in your diet. Found in soy foods, flax seeds, sunflower seeds, bean sprouts, and legumes such as garbanzo beans and peas, phytoestrogens are plant-based substances that can help balance your hormones naturally.
Tip #2: Practice Mindfulness & Meditation When you Feel Stressed Out
We’ve all heard about the dreaded stress hormone called cortisol.
In one study, mindfulness meditation reduced serum cortisol in medical students very meaningfully — showing the incredible impact the practice can have on our bodies. So if you need additional motivation to meditate, now you know that meditation can actually reduce one of the hormones responsible for causing you to gain weight!
Tip #3: Include Adaptogens like MACA Into Your Life.
Adaptogens have a normalizing influence, helping to bring your body back into balance in response to exposure to any form of stress.
Maca in particular is known to be a natural aphrodisiac that is used all over the world and affects both genders. It’s believed to help balance hormones and boost adrenal and thyroid function.
Tip 4: Bring Circulation to your Body Daily
When your hormones get out of whack and your immunity drops and inflammation builds, this can inevitably leads to accelerated aging.
One practice, of massaging yourself and making contact with the skin, called Abhyanga Practice actually soothes your nervous system and adrenals helping to balance hormones.
Another way to get circulation going is to move your body and exercise!
Tip #5. Ditch the Dairy
Research has found the presence of hormones in milk and dairy foods plays a large concern with respect to finding hormones as biomarkers for imbalanced hormones, and diseases.
During the last couple of years, increasing body of evidence are indicating another property of hormones in dairy products as possible impact on human health including the role of some estrogens and insulin-like growth factor-1 in initiation and provoking of breast, prostate and endometrial tumors.
