What are the top 10 strategies for improving your hormonal health?

Let’s talk about it.

Your hormonal health includes all your hormones: your sex hormones, your thyroid hormones, your adrenal hormones, your pituitary hormones, and your pancreatic hormones.

Here are my top 10 strategies to improve your hormonal health.

#1. Support your hypothalamus nutraceutically

It is extremely difficult to get everything you need micronutrient-wise for your hypothalamus to function optimally. Fortunately, your hypothalamus is incredibly sensitive to micronutrients as it’s not protected by the blood brain barrier.

It needs adequate amount of essential and conditionally essential amino acids, polyunsaturated fatty acids, especially Omega 3s and 9s and lots of phytonutrients like polyphenols, coenzymes naturally occurring plant-based minerals and vitamins in order to function optimally.

That’s why I created Genesis Gold®. Genesis Gold® is a complete nutraceutical hypothalamic supplement to optimize its function so your hormones stay in balance. 

#2. Eat healthy fats

Healthy Fats include polyunsaturated fatty acids – omega -3s and 9s – monounsaturated fats, which include olive oil and avocado oil. Omega -3s are found in nuts, flax, and fish.

These healthy fats help to reduce hypothalamic inflammation and improve Hormonal Health. You want to limit trans fatty acids and excessive amounts of saturated fat.

#3. Limit starchy sugary carbs

Sugar is not your friend when it comes to Hormonal Health. Consume complex carbohydrates that includes vegetables, whole grains and legumes. 

#4. Eat a variety of plants

Phytonutrients come from plants – colorful fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds and legumes. These micronutrient powerhouses help your hypothalamus function normally which helps to keep your hormone healthy. 

#5. Move your body

If you are sedentary, your hormones will not be healthy and you’ll have more inflammation.

Exercise including aerobic and weight resistance helps to make your fat fit and keep your hypothalamus inflammation down which helps to balance your hormones.

#6. Adopt healthy sleep habits

If you’re not getting at least seven to nine hours of sleep at night, your hormones will not be in good balance. All hormones have natural circadian rhythms that are controlled by your hypothalamus. So sleep in the dark.

Make sure you turn off blue light-emitting screens after dusk.  Develop good sleep hygiene habits. Your hypothalamus is very responsive to getting yourself ready for bed. 

#7. Practice stress reduction techniques

Life is stressful, but you need to learn how to reduce your stress response. If you can’t control the outer influence, you can control your inner response.

Practicing deep breathing exercises, yoga, meditation, mindfulness can all help in reducing your stress response. And chronically over-activated stress response can cause hypothalamic dysfunction, which will seriously imbalance your hormones.

#8. Avoid endocrine disruptors

Endocrine disruptors imbalance hormones by taking up hormone receptor sites and impacting hormone metabolism. Environmental endocrine disruptors like BPA from plastics, certain pesticides and medication are inhaled or ingested.

One of the good things about supporting your hypothalamus nutraceutically with Genesis Gold® is that if you are exposed to endocrine disrupters, your body is able to detox them more easily.

#9. Hug others

For optimal hormonal and physical health, strive for at least 12 hugs a day.

Sharing pheromones increases oxytocin to keep your hormones in better balance. Hugs that last at least 20 seconds are most effective. 

#10. Honor your natural cycles

Your hormones are not just circadian, they’re cyclical. If you’re a woman, they follow the moon cycles. Hormones follow the seasons, the temperature, the climate. So when the days get longer, you will feel more active and maybe a little hungrier. When the days get shorter, it’s time to rest, rejuvenate and get a little bit more sleep.

It’s very important to honor your natural cycles because your hormones function at higher levels in the spring and summer and lower levels in the winter. Taxing your body 24 hours per day, 7 days a week, 52 weeks a year can wreak havoc on your hormonal balance.
