Hormonal imbalance is difficult to understand and even more difficult to treat yourself (we don’t recommend this approach). However, there are things you can do to empower your health and maintain a healthy hormone balance on your own. We’ll lay out how to best understand your hormone levels and some ways you can support your hormone health for the long term.

How do you reset your hormones?

The best way to reset hormones is to first take a look at what hormones are imbalanced, and what that imbalance looks like. Some hormones are often too high, while others are often too low. By using a combination of herbal medicine and bio-identical hormone creams (if indicated), we are successful in rebalancing or resetting hormone levels back to normal. After resetting your hormones, our goal is that your body will be able to properly maintain the balance. 

 

What are the best vitamins to take for hormonal imbalance?

We get this question a lot! Each person we work with has different. As a result, their levels of hormonal imbalance are different. These differences make it hard to come up with a one-size-fits-all recommendation. To get the full picture we recommend testing your hormones. With the test results we are equipped to give our clients an individualized and custom treatment plan based on exactly what they are experiencing.

However, generally speaking, the vitamins that best support the adrenal glands consist of B vitamins and vitamin C. B vitamins typically found in a B-complex formula, are integral to the function of enzymes present in the adrenal glands. These enzymes help with the hormone production in the adrenal glands. While vitamin C can easily found a good multi-vitamin. Your body uses vitamin c in the creation of cortisol and is also an excellent antioxidant for the adrenal glands.

 

What are the best hormone balancing Diets?

To make it as simple as possible, diets that consist of whole foods are often best for maintaining hormone balance. The goal is to eat as much minimally processed food in your diet as possible.

To do this, make sure you are getting adequate an amount of macronutrients, protein, healthy fats, and carbohydrates. This variety is the best way to ensure that your hormone balance is being supported through your diet. In addition, make sure that you are eating regular meals and supplementing with snacks when needed. Under eating or forgetting to eat can negatively affect your blood sugar levels. Frequent dips in your blood sugar can cause increased stress on the adrenal glands, which can impact your blood sugar metabolism and hormone regulation in the adrenal glands.

 

What foods help with hormonal imbalance?

Foods that help with hormonal imbalance include healthy sources of protein, vegetables, nuts, seeds, seafood, some dairy sources, and organ meats. Your sex hormones and cortisol are created from cholesterol. Therefore, it’s important to be sure that your diet contains plenty of sources of healthy cholesterol. Healthy options can include eggs, shellfish, organ meats, yogurt, and cheese. Avoid fried foods, fast food, and processed meat products if possible.
