Do you feel you are riding the Hormonal Roller Coaster?

Do you have symptoms such as painful, heavy or irregular periods, premenstrual mood swings, bloating and hot flushes?

Your symptoms may be related to one of these conditions:

  • Premenstrual syndrome (PMS): includes symptoms of breast tenderness, migraines and mood changes prior to your period. PMS may be linked to lowered progesterone levels and often made worse by stress.
  • Endometriosis and fibroids: women with these conditions often experience heavy, painful periods, pain throughout the month, bloating, and sometimes weight gain.
  • Polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS): missing periods, facial hair growth, sugar cravings, weight gain and difficulty conceiving are commonly experienced, due to higher than normal testosterone and lower progesterone levels.
  • Menopause: many women suffer from hot flushes, night sweats, and anxiety, as their periods come to a stop.

While different conditions are influenced by subtle changes in hormone levels, there are many other factors that also play a role.
Some of these come from your body – such as inflammation (e.g. from joint pain or digestive imbalance), being overweight, and feeling stressed.

The environment you live in can also play havoc with hormones. Toxins are virtually unavoidable and many, such as bisphenyl-A or ‘BPA’ (found in plastics, the lining of tins, and even on shopping dockets) have hormone-like effects and may negatively affect your hormonal balance.

A Fine Balancing Act, Zoe can help restore balance by recommending herbs and nutrients to address these factors and harmonise

Take Charge

The following tips can help you restore hormonal balance:

  • Eat organic foods to reduce your consumption of added growth-promoting hormones (in meats) and pesticides (on fruits and vegetables) that have been linked to hormonal imbalance.
  • Avoid hormone-disrupting chemicals found in plastics by using glassware for storing and reheating food and drinks.
  • Reduce feelings of stress and anxiety with simple breathing exercises:
    • Try breathing in for a count of five, holding your breath for a count of five, and breathing out for a count of five.
      Repeat for three minutes, twice daily.

Embrace your health and wellbeing as a woman and be free from hormonal symptoms.
