In the past few years, I’ve learned a lot about balancing hormones naturally with a healthy diet of traditional food and food supplements. I’ve put together my Top 5 Tips For Balancing Hormones Naturally.

Before I share my tips with you, please note that I’m not an expert in this area, nor am I a doctor and this post should not be construed as medical advice. However, I have learned some things over the past few years that I want to share. I hope it will help some people out there.

This post is especially for women, since so many of us suffer from hormonal issues. These hormonal problems are more prevalent as we age, and particularly after pregnancy and childbirth. However, more and more women are experiencing hormonal problems in our youth — everything from missed periods, low sex drive, cysts in the breasts and ovaries, infertility, and breast cancer. There are many things we can do nutritionally to prevent and reverse these hormonal disorders.

10 Ways To Balance Hormones Naturally

 How to Naturally Balance HormonesHormones, such as estrogen and insulin, are chemical messengers that affect many aspects of your health as they travel in your bloodstream throughout your entire body.  Some of the most common side effects of hormone imbalance include:

  • Infertility
  • Weight gain
  • Depression
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Low libido
  • Hair loss and hair thinning

Organs and glands like your thyroid, adrenals, pituitary, ovaries, testicles and pancreas regulate most of your hormone production and if your hormones become even slightly imbalanced it can cause major health issues. (more…)

Lose Weight by Controlling Your Hormones

When we hear the word “hormones,” our first thought is about sex hormones. However, the hormones discussed here are not sex hormones, they are hormones that control or affect our weight. An endocrine hormone is actually any chemical messenger that travels from where it is produced through the bloodstream to another part or parts of the body where it exerts its effect. Our hormones interact with each other to create a fast-acting chemical control system for our entire bodies. For weight control, hormones rule! (more…)

Suffering from a Hormone Imbalance? First, Fix Your Digestion

Studies show that many of us spend our adult life struggling with compromised immune function, infertility, and sleepless nights and using stimulants like caffeine and sugar to get through the day.

The signs of PMS and menopause that women experience today are not normal.

By the time that retirement is an option, many of us are on at least 2 to 3 pharmaceutical medications – if not more.

Dr. Shiao-Ting Jing, a sixth generation physician at the Traditional Chinese Medicine Healing Center in Los Angeles specializing in hard-to-treat disorders and women’s health, believes that natural medicine such as acupuncture and herbology create an opportunity for people to live long and full lives.

Understand the Cause of Depression

Nutritional and hormonal imbalances may be the culprit

Everyone at one time or another experiences feelings of guilt, irritability or sadness—this is normal. Severe chronic depression for no reason is another matter. If you suffer from bouts of depression, the standard medical treatment involves hours of psychoanalysis and/or mind-altering drugs. Believe it or not, electric shock therapy is making a comeback, with an estimated 250,000 people still undergoing this brutal procedure each year.

Hormones and chemical imbalances in your body make it increasingly difficult to deal logically with everyday stressful situations. It becomes almost impossible for a depressed person to separate situations they have control over, from those they don’t. He or she begins to feel frustrated, worried and even guilty for situations they can’t change. Correcting hormonal or biochemical imbalances helps them “see more clearly.” Many patients compare it to a fog lifting—no longer do they feel like a zombie walking around in a daze. (more…)

6 Bodily Tissues That Can Be Regenerated Through Nutrition

6 Bodily Tissues That Can Be Regenerated Through Nutrition

It may come as a surprise to some, especially those with conventional medical training, but the default state of the body is one of ceaseless regeneration.  Without the flame-like process of continual cell turnover within the body – life and death ceaselessly intertwined – the miracle of the human body would not exist.

In times of illness, however, regenerative processes are overcome by degenerative ones. This is where medicine may perform its most noble feat, nudging the body back into balance with foods, herbs, nutrients, healing energies, i.e. healing intention. Today, however, drug-based medicine invariably uses chemicals that have not one iota of regenerative potential; to the contrary, they almost always interfere with bodily self-renewal in order to suppress the symptoms against which they are applied.

Despite the outright heretical nature of things which stimulate healing and regeneration vis-à-vis the conventional medical system which frowns upon, or is incredulous towards, spontaneous remission in favor of symptom suppression and disease management, over the course of the past few years of trolling MEDLINE we have collected a series of remarkable studies on the topic…

Human Hormones Are Being Eclipsed By Synthetic Chemicals

A new study published in the Journal of Applied Toxicology has raised some disturbing possibilities regarding the dangers of common hormone-mimicking preservatives found in thousands of consumer products on the market today.[1]

Titled “Parabens detection in different zones of the human breast: consideration of source and implications of findings,” researchers discussed the role that parabens — a class of estrogen-mimicking chemicals widely used in drugs, foods and cosmetics — may have in breast cancer and childhood disease.

Pomegranates: The New Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Pomegranates: The New Natural Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Modern women at midlife have many options when it comes to dealing with those nasty menopausal symptoms like mood swings, depression, bone loss, and fluctuating estrogen levels.  But their most surprising source of natural relief may come from an ancient food:  the juicy pomegranate.

Pomegranates have been cultivated for over 4,000 years.  Our word pomegranate dates back to around 750 B.C. and comes from the Latin “Punicum malum” meaning “Phoenician apple.”  Today the fruit is often called a “Chinese apple.”  (more…)

Trimming the Fat from Weight Loss Studies

It’s really true; most of us can’t see the forest for the trees. Medical researchers likewise can’t see the “holistic” for its parts. And the media can’t see diddly — even when their faces are shoved in it. As I’ve said on numerous occasions, I could spend my entire life doing nothing but refuting studies that have little enough value on their own, but when taken out of context by the media, are actually quite misleading…and potentially harmful.

So what are we talking about today?
