As woman we have so many things in our environment that kinda mess with our hormones. Not to mention most girls are on the pill by the age of 16!
After being on the pill for 10 years I decided to go off of it to start to cleanse my body before I wanting to try for children. I decided get an copper IUD and gave that a shot for about a year but it never truly felt comfortable. I think it's because I ended up having a slight septate uterus which probably made it not sit normally. Sorry if that's TMI.
Anyway, after going off the pill I started to see how my body actually works and what it looks like to produces hormones all on my own. I balanced my cycles with a combination of Chinese Medicine, acupuncture, exercise, herbs and nutrition.
It wasn't until I went through 3 years, 4 pregnancy looses and using progesterone suppositories that in August of 2015 my body and hormones were once again a serious mess! This is when I dove into rediscovering my health, career and life! When the switch was turned on and I committed to invest in me and my health. I became my own client... but this time I was ALL IN!
Does this sound like you? Are you going through similar things? Don't worry! You can get back to you again! I have lived and breathed this and it's possible! You are not alone
Here are some proven ways to correct your hormonal imbalance.
Many imbalances are lifestyle related. Start by making correction in your personal environment.
Kick your sugar habit, including artificial sweeteners
Reduce or eliminate alcohol
Eliminate foods with wheat or flour
Throw out all the processed foods, they are filled with hormone disrupters
Aim for 80/20 (80% vegetables / 20% protein either plant and/or animal) preferably organic and grass feed)
Take digestive enzymes and probiotics to heal your gut
Clean up your living environment
Get rid of toxic cleaners and chemicals, including laundry products (these are all endocrine disruptors).
Remove fluoride from your water and tooth products
Replace plastic in your kitchen with glass
Use only real natural body and hair products - what you put on your skin is absorbed into your blood stream.
Detox - don't fast or go straight into a juice detox. If your body isn't acclimated to this type of process it will do everything to hold onto fat stores for future energy use.
Move your body - your body isn't meant to sit all day. Try walking, yoga, swimming if you are new or taking it up a notch if you are already in a exercise routine.
Clean up your mental environment - personal development has been one of the most amazing shifts in my life! Negative self talk and comparison to others brings on unnecessary stress, raises your cortisol level and starts the hormone roller coaster over and over.
Get rid of the endless cycle of stories floating in your head - start adding in positive affirmations around the house. I find it really handy if you put them on sticky notes and post them round the house.
Practice daily the Art of Presence - even if you are a terrible mediator don't give up trying. There are many podcasts and videos that you can use to help make the experience positive until you can do it yourself
Decide what you want more: a happy life that is symptom free or going on the way you have been going?
Figuring out YOU from the inside out and working to be the best you is grounding, affirming and it builds confidence. It is the must needed step toward less depression and more vitality
