This year I have been paying a lot of attention to correcting my hormone levels, 6 months ago a biomeridian test picked up hormonal imbalances and it was recommended that I take a good quality omega-3. Since taking these supplements I have seen a massive improvement in my skin, acne that I have had for over 15yrs has pretty much cleared, my weight seems to have stabilised where in the past it tended to fluctuate throughout my monthly cycle and my mood seems far more consistent, my house has become a much safe place to dwell in the week before my period.
On my healing journey I have come to understand that gut health and balance hormones are key elements for a healthy existence. Although I feel I still have a ways to go I am beginning to feel cautiously optimistic that I am putting my illness in to remission, something I could never have dreamed of being able to say when I was first diagnosed. As my confidence in my health has grown so has my faith that the natural approach is the way forward.
With all the chemicals that are bodies we are bombarded with through modern living, many of them endocrine disrupters it is little wonder that our systems are often off kilter. Although it is impossible to completely rid yourself of toxins it is possible with some changes to your lifestyle to give your body a helping hand to rebalance.
A change in diet can have a massive impact on your health and hormones, many convenience foods come laden with chemicals and unpronanouncable additives etc, so if you can manage to prise yourself from their grasp you will begin to see an improvement. Taking a look and your beauty routine and personal care is another area you can make some changes, many products have a list of chemicals as long as your arm, by swapping out a few of your usual products for natural alternatives is a great place to start. There are some brilliant natural household cleaners and methods out there too that won’t automatically turn you in to a 1950’s housewife throwback, although I have to say some of those mamas were totally rocking it, gorgeous dresses, sexy pencil skirts they were hot to trot!
Sorry I digress, three, two, one back in the room, grab yourself a cuppa while you watch the interview and I’ll see you on the other side. I hope you find it useful.
