Three ways I’ve started balancing my hormones:
I’ve said goodbye (for the most part) to dairy, gluten, and sugar. I still occasionally add a little heavy cream to my mushroom soup or enjoy a crusty piece of Rosemary bread with butter from time to time, but have omitted these items from my typical daily lifestyle.
2. I’ve become more consistent with my practice of Yoga, prayer, and meditation. This has allowed me to slow down, practice more gratitude, and simply introduce more calmness, presence, and stillness.
3. Taking Sea Buckthorn Oil, B vitamins, Vitamin D, and other supplements have made their way into my morning routine. It’s important to find out what your body is lacking, and be sure to compensate for it with vitamins and nutrition from food primarily, but supplements as well. Be sure to take supplements, herbs, vitamins, etc. under instruction of a doctor or trusted health professional.
This book has literally changed my life and the way I feel about my cycle, and my body.
I've blogged about my story and you can read it if you're interested, but to make a long story short - when I was at the end of my rope, this book saved me. It gave me the hope and strength to pick myself back up, brush myself off, and try just one more thing to feel "normal" again. Once I did, I never looked at food, exercise, or even sex the same way again. I learned so many things about my body that I never knew before.
It talks all about how our endocrine system is in control of our hormones, which controls our metabolism, energy, mood swings, cycle, sex drive, and more. The author, Alisa Vitti, put her own PCOS into remission by developing a lifestyle protocol based on balancing blood sugar, eliminating what she calls "FLO blockers" from our lifestyle (chemicals, caffeine, toxins, etc.), and living in sync with our cycles with everything we do. She gives a list of foods that give our bodies the nutritional support they need for each week in our cycle. It's truly amazing, incredible and life-changing. Every woman should read it, so I encourage you to as well!
