If you’re feeling like your hormones are out of balance, don’t worry – you’re not alone! In this blog post, we’ll discuss how to keep your hormones in check and your health on track. Also, my best-kept secrets for keeping your hormones balanced and optimizing your health are revealed in this post. Read on for helpful tips and tricks on how to maintain hormone balance!

Now, you may be thinking: “Why should I listen to you?” Well, I’m a functional medicine practitioner and a health coach nutritionist. I have been working with people on hormone balancing for years. Trust me when I say that these steps will help you get on the right track and be in optimal health.


What are hormones? Hormones are chemical messengers.


Sometimes we think that since we are eating different kinds of foods, or we are old and that’s why hormones are supposed to be imbalanced. I quite disagree.


You’re not as old as you think. We can stay in the best shape if our hormones are optimized. You have the best levels of your hormones in your 20s to 30s, but, not so much after that. This means, that if you maintain the same level, aging is just a number.


“Hormones are like the universe. They’re always in balance.” – This is a myth.


Hormones are not always in imbalance because as you go through life, especially for women, when they have a pregnancy, have babies, and go through menopause, the hormones get imbalanced. This means our goal is to make sure they get balanced.


The key to optimal hormone health is understanding your body’s natural rhythms. What does this mean?

We need to consider the following questions: 

    ➔ When are you producing hormones?
    ➔ What are the highest levels to those other rhythms?


When you wake up in the morning, your body is full of cortisol, a powerful hormone that helps to keep you energized and alert. This makes sense, as during the waking hours we need to stay focused and active to get things done. But as the day progresses, our levels of cortisol start to decline, eventually reaching their lowest point in the late evening.


This ebb and flow of cortisol production throughout the day plays an important role in regulating our sleeping patterns and helping us get the rest that we need when it’s time for bed. So when you’re feeling sluggish or sleepy in the afternoon, just remember that your body is doing its best to give you what you need!


When it comes to the two most important hormones in our body, estrogen and testosterone aren’t bad. A lot of people say things like “Oh my gosh! I have an issue with estrogen dominance because that’s why I can’t lose weight.” Or maybe you feel your T-levels are off-balance? The key thing here though is finding just enough so that everything works well together without too much stress on any one area or another–you don’t want  to overdo anything either way.


At first glance, cortisol may seem like the enemy – it’s often associated with stress and anxiety, and high cortisol levels are often considered to be a cause of many health problems. But in fact, cortisol is a necessary hormone that helps to regulate other important hormones in the body. Its primary function is to regulate stress, providing short-term relief by triggering the fight-or-flight response when we need it most. 


However, cortisol can also have negative impacts on our health if its levels become imbalanced or too high or low. For this reason, it’s important to keep cortisol levels in check by making good lifestyle choices and practicing relaxation techniques like yoga or deep breathing. By finding a healthy balance between cortisol and other hormones in our bodies, we can help ensure that we stay healthy and happy for years to come.​


“Sleep tight”


Sleep is the best way to keep your hormones balanced and make sure you don’t have any mood swings. Not sleeping well will lead you to not having a fun time balancing your hormones. If aren’t getting enough rest, it’s going to be hard for everything else in life. When we were younger our bodies had more energy. But as time goes on, this changes so that when older people lose their ability due to lack of sleep, they begin showing signs similar to those seen during puberty such as obesity or hair growth spurt. 


Stress relief methods for the modern human


Anyone who says they don’t experience stress is either A) a liar or B) a robot. C) an inhuman being that doesn’t feel the full range of human emotions. Stress is a part of life, there’s no escaping it. What we can do, however, is find ways to manage it so that it doesn’t take over our lives and leave us feeling like hormonally imbalanced messes.


Mindfulness and meditation are two fantastic methods for managing stress. They help us to relax and clear our minds so that our hormones can align themselves again. If you’re looking for ways to de-stress, give mindfulness and meditation a try. You might just find that they help you to feel more balanced and at ease with the world around you.


Is the Paleo diet worth a try?


If you’re looking to manage your diet for hormone optimal balancing, it’s worth considering the paleolithic diet. The paleolithic diet has been shown to have a positive impact on hormone balance. On the other hand, fast food diets are known for their high levels of saturated fats which can worsen your situation if you’re already suffering from hormonal imbalances.


Exercise is vital.


When it comes to optimizing hormone levels naturally, exercise is essential. Not only does it help boost energy levels and promote overall health, but it can also affect your cortisol levels positively. By being aware of your cortisol levels and incorporating the right type of exercise into your routine, you can ensure that those hormones are properly regulated and eliminated from your system.


Whether by promoting good circulation or supporting the proper elimination pathways, exercise plays a key role in promoting hormonal balance and overall well-being. If you’re looking to stay healthy and feel your best, be sure to include regular exercise in your routine!


Balancing your hormones is key to maintaining your health, and there are a few things you can do to help keep them in check. By eating a paleolithic diet, exercising every day, and getting enough sleep, you’re well on your way to keeping your hormones balanced. But that’s not all! Stress management is also essential for keeping your hormones in balance. Practices like meditation and mindfulness can be extremely helpful in this regard.
