Chocolate Mint Fat Bomb Recipe for Balanced Blood Sugar

By | Blog, Snacks | One Comment

Our fat bomb recipe helps with hormone balance.

 

Do you experience afternoon sugar cravings? You’re not alone; it’s totally normal to be hungry for a snack at 3pm. 

 

However, if you refuel with a sugar-filled snack or grab a coffee, you’re thwarting your efforts to attain hormone balance and stable energy levels.

 

Indeed, it’s important to avoid sugar if you’re struggling to balance your hormones. It’s a vicious cycle: a hormone imbalance can cause your body to become resistant to insulin (which is a hormone). Your pancreas then has to produce more insulin to keep your blood sugar within a normal range.

 

In addition, your body will store the excess sugar in fat cells, which releases the excess glucose and affects your blood sugar levels even when you haven’t eaten for a while.

Here’s What I Did To Get Rid Of My PMS Symptoms Naturally

By | Blog, Menstrual Health | No Comments

In the past, I experienced really bad PMS symptoms.

It all started when I was in my teens; I used to get a headache right before my period started. After a while, I began to experience an intense negative shift in my mood. I got irritable; I almost felt like a different person for the last half of my cycle.

Finally, my breasts became really sore right after ovulation. It seemed that this was the norm for a lot of my friends as well.

When I started to learn more about hormone health I realized that PMS symptoms are common but they aren’t normal. Most symptoms are signs of hormone imbalance. This knowledge inspired me to take action to eliminate my PMS.

3 Ways With Sweet Potato: Get A Natural Progesterone Boost!

By | Blog, Main Dishes, Menstrual Health | No Comments

Are you looking for a natural progesterone source?

 

I love sweet potatoes because they contain a full spectrum of hormone balancing nutrients that help build natural progesterone.

The hormone progesterone is naturally dominant in the luteal phase of your cycle. Optimal levels are essential for fertility, balanced moods and minimal PMS symptoms, as well as a balanced period.

 

Progesterone & Your Period

Do you experience heavy menstrual flow? Flooding may be a symptom of not enough progesterone. Estrogen builds the endometrial lining and progesterone halts its growth, helping to ‘ripen’ the lining and prepare for potential pregnancy.

If you’re Eating For Your Cycle, focus on natural progesterone building foods like sweet potato in the luteal phase. Sweet potatoes are high in vitamin A, vitamin B5, B6, thiamin, niacin, riboflavin, and due to their orange color, are high in carotenoids. Read More

Are Your Mood Swings Getting The Better Of Your Relationship?

By | Blog, Menstrual Health | No Comments

Are your hormones sabotaging your relationship?

 

So many women and men are needlessly suffering in their relationships because of fluctuating hormones causing mood swings.

Sometimes your patience wears thin for no reason. You blow up over something that typically wouldn’t ruffle you at all. Now you’re fighting with your partner and you are feeling super irritable, which makes you want to push all of his buttons like a kid in an elevator… just because you can.

After the smoke clears, you think back with regret and confusion; what’s with the strong reaction? Why did I want to lash out? You feel bad… what you said during your argument just isn’t reflective of the true you.

You realize that when you’re PMSing internal negative self talk about yourself or your partner increases. Is this normal? Does it have to be like this each and every month?


It’s not me, it’s my hormones.

 

Of course it’s important to take accountability for our own actions. However, we can understand the hormonal origins of our moods and learn ways to return to balance. This reduces feelings of guilt and empowers us to take action to fix it. Read More

It’s easy to understand why many women choose to stop taking the birth control pill.

The Benefits of Hiring a Health Coach… Because You Need Results!

By | Blog | 2 Comments

Many women know what to do,

but they don’t always do it.

 

With loads of information right at our fingertips it’s easy to formulate a plan and schedule it in. However, it’s typical that information doesn’t change our habitual way of behaving. Take smoking for example; there’s lots of information about the dangers of cigarettes, however their addictive properties make it a difficult habit to break.

It’s so easy to let life get in the way of our ‘wise plans’, AKA the commitments we make to ourselves. Wise plans are formed in the epic strategy sessions we have where we plan to reach our goals. The issue isn’t misinformation or lack of preparation.

The real problem is lack of accountability.
