It’s all going fine but it does take time to get everything balanced. It’s important to work with your doctor or a naturopath to receive the best results. Remember I’m not a doctor but I can provide you with suggestions to help you make some natural choices. Or at least try natural solutions first. I recollect during my hormonal imbalance that it would be much easier to take a pill from the doctor. I chose to try a natural solution. Below I’ve outlined for you; hormone imbalance in the body, what are the symptoms, foods that can help balance hormones naturally and foods to avoid.

Hormone imbalance in the body:

A hormone imbalance is when there is too much or too little of a hormone in the body’s bloodstream. This can happen due to several reasons such as stress, age, change of life, medications or a medical condition. Other conditions could be caused by toxins or unhealthy food choices. If left untreated a hormone imbalance can be dangerous and cause serious illnesses such as diabetes and thyroid issues.  According to medicalnewstoday.com, hormones are chemicals that are produced by glands in the endocrine system.

Focus on the following tips to help balance hormones:

  • Get plenty of deep high quality sleep-Getting plenty of deep high quality sleep is a problem for many people. I’ve done some things in my life to help me sleep better. I do not eat chocolate or drink alcohol after dinner because I’ve learned the hard way that those things interrupt me getting good sleep. I have some non caffeine tea before bed. My favorite is turmeric and ginger based and it seems to help me settle down. I haven’t tried this but people have said to limit screen time one hour before bed. Turn off WiFi and keep the bedroom dark and cool.
  • Eat fatty fish-I recommend wild caught salmon as a great source of fatty fish.
  • Eat healthy balanced meals-Eating lots of fruits, veggies, grains and proteins at every meal.
  • Manage stress-Learn how to decompress and take deep breaths when you’re feeling extra stress in your life or work.
  • Eat healthy fats-These are healthy oils such as olive oil and nuts or seeds.
  • Avoid sugary drinks-This would be sugary drinks such as soda or milk shakes.
  • Avoid processed foods-Foods purchased in a box or in a can that is not fresh with preservatives and a long list of unhealthy ingredients.
  • Eat enough protein at each meal-Proteins can be found in fish, beans, nuts, seeds and avocados.
  • Exercise regularly-I published an article about simple exercises that you can do and balance exercises for seniors. Check out my other article here for the 10 ways to walk at home.
  • Eat high fiber foods-Foods such as whole grains, beans, legumes, avocado, peas and apples.

Men can also have a hormone imbalance. Men can have fatigue, mood changes, hair loss, muscle weakness and osteoporosis. Only 20% of men experience hormone imbalance.

WHAT IS PEA PROTEIN?

I’ve heard so much about pea protein. But what is pea protein? I think it’s simply a plant based powder made out of peas. It’s usually used to increase the protein content in smoothies and shakes.  It’s also used in some packaged foods like veggie burgers, vegan mayo and a subsitutute for dairy in some ice creams.  Pea protein is made from extracting the powder from green and yellow split peas.  The peas are the same ones used to make split pea soup.  Pea protein is a healthy alternative to whey protein and other animal derived powders. There are also several other types of powders such as soy protein, rice protein, and hemp protein.

WHAT IS BLACK GOLD?

First hearing the term “black gold” made me so curious. I imagined so many definitions and topics of what is black gold. Is it a new drink, an oil, a type of jewelry, a song or a movie? It inspired me to dig deep and uncover what exactly is black gold. Well I guess it depends who you ask. I asked some friends and they all have their own ideas of what is black gold. I think for me the best answer is it’s the result of successful composting. I wrote about this in an article awhile back that you can read here. I’ve always planned on researching more about this because I do find it interesting.

WHAT IS ASHWAGANDHA FOR?

I’m so intrigued by this word Ashwagandha that I decided to do some research on it.  Pronounced ash-wa-gand-ha. It’s considered the King of Ayurvedic Herbs.  Withania somnifera is the official name of this plant that is also known as Indian ginseng or winter cherry. It’s a small evergreen shrub plant in the Solanacease or nightshade family. It’s grown in India, parts of Africa and the Middle East. The root is used to make the substance that is crushed into a powder that makes up the medicinal properties.  The berry doesn’t taste very good but is used to propagate for future planting.
