Believe it or not, the foods that you eat influence everything in your body – from hormone balance, system health, and so much more.

↗️ If you want more energy – change your diet.

↘️ If you want to lose weight – change your diet.

😁 If you want to be happier – change your diet.

This is because everything you eat influences your hormones and system function. And every part of your health is influenced by your hormones.

Hormones are your superpower & food is super fuel. How you eat directly influences hormone balance. 

Is it corny? Absolutely. But is it right? 100%.

Your hormones control every single aspect of your metabolism and health. When they become disrupted, then you are stuck with symptoms like fatigue, hair loss, weight gain, anxiety, PMS…just to name a few.

And you deserve more than struggling with symptoms day in and out.

Symptoms are NOT normal. They stem from hormone imbalance.

Imbalance happens because of nutrient gaps. If your car doesn’t have gas, it doesn’t go. If your hormones don’t have what they need, they can’t thrive.

When you focus on fueling your systems and filling the nutrient gaps, your hormones and systems start to work synergistically to heal your body.

There are over 500 enzymatic and biochemical equations happening in your body at any given time. This is a fine-tuned process that requires accuracy.

When your systems do not have the proper energy or micronutrients to help fuel these reactions – the system suffers. And this happens time and time again the disruption snowballs leading to a full system and hormone shutdown.

Which is why it feels like the “older” you get the more you struggle. It has nothing to do with age and everything to do with the fact your body has been missing what it needs for years.

Best Foods for Reducing Estrogen Dominance

Estrogen dominance happens as a result of poor filtration of estrogen out of the body via the liver and bowels. If these systems are sluggish, there is poor binding of estrogen or tagging of it for proper and regular removal. As a result, the excess estrogen remains stored in fat cells and tissue.

Focus on foods that are high in indol-3-carbinol and glutathione to help bind to excess estrogen to help filter and flush it out of the body:

  • Dark Leafy Greens
  • Broccoli
  • Cauliflower
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Flax Seeds
  • Fermented Foods (kimchi, kombucha, sauerkraut)

Best Foods for Boosting Low Progesterone

Progesterone production is quickly influenced by stress levels. If stress is high, your body will steal from progesterone stores to make cortisol. Even worse, the nutrients that are critical to building progesterone are typically lower in our diet, making supply and demand an issue.

Focusing on vitamin D, vitamin E, B6, and magnesium helps to reduce stress and boost natural progesterone production:

  • Dark Chocolate
  • Dark Leafy Greens
  • Salmon
  • Eggs
  • Sunflower Seeds
  • Sweet Potatoes
  • Carrots

Best Foods for Improving Low Estrogen

Low estrogen happens as a result of chronic stress or the start of menopause. You can fill this gap and help initiate the production of estrogen by incorporating key nutrients to bind to estrogen receptors and communicate the same message.

Foods that are high in natural phytoestrogens, a plant compound that mimics the act of estrogen in the body to help boost levels naturally:

  • Tofu
  • Edamame
  • Flax Seeds
  • Strawberries
  • Peaches
  • Garlic
  • Tempeh

Best Foods for Boosting Low Thyroid

Choose foods that are high in vitamin A, iron, and magnesium to help boost thyroid function and regulate the production of TSH.

Complex carbohydrates help to increase the conversion of T4 to T3 and improve thyroid hormone production:

  • Collard Greens, Spinach, Chard
  • Whole Grains
  • Oats
  • Brazil Nuts
  • Beef
  • Bell Peppers
  • Cantaloupe

Best Foods for Improving Cortisol Balance

When stress is high in the body, reducing inflammation and regulating blood sugar is priority number one. Choose foods high in omega 3 and magnesium as they help to reduce inflammation and help to bind and repair receptors in the body that have been disrupted by chronic stress.

Complex carbohydrates to help stabilize blood sugar and regulate insulin production:

  • Spinach
  • Pumpkin Seeds
  • Almonds
  • Fatty Fish
  • Avocados
  • Quinoa
  • Sweet Potatoes/Yams
