Your hormones are responsible for how you think, feel, and look. A woman with balanced hormones is sharp and upbeat with a good memory. She feels energetic without caffeine during the day, falls asleep quickly, and wakes refreshed. She is blessed with a healthy appetite and maintains a desired weight with a good diet. Her hair and skin glow. She feels emotionally balanced and responds to stress with grace and reason.
Learn how to balance your hormones naturally with food. This may be the case for some women, but what I have discovered on my journey is that there is more. Restoring your gut, sugar levels, and liver health will not only rebalance your hormones but will reverse many other, seemingly unconnected ailments that might have been plaguing you for years, such as seasonal allergies, hives, chronic pain, depression, and anxiety. When I polled the community about the biggest change that this way of eating had created for them, I thought I was going to read replies pertaining to weight loss , better sleep , or better mental function. For some of you, just eliminating gluten and dairy from your diet might resolve years of suffering. I learned to cook because I had to—to save my life and sanity. For years, I dealt with an addiction to coffee and cigarettes.
In the big picture of health, hormones are a key player. You've likely had many moments where you realize hormonal imbalances are the root cause of a client's complaint. The adrenal glands are the underappreciated masters of our hormonal balance and any amount of stress will affect them. Our adrenals have the power to increase or blunt appetite, drive up blood sugar, stimulate or slow metabolism, stop progesterone production, and convert testosterone into estrogen. There is no differentiation between physical stress and emotional stress as far as adrenal glands are concerned. Every type of stress is considered an immediate physical threat, so stress reduction and management are highly important.
