You Can’t Eat Your Way to Hormone Balance!

I always love it when I hear middle-years women say to me, “Well, you know, I never take medication except maybe an aspirin and I eat really healthy, so I’m sure my hormones are fine!”. My response is always the same, “Good for you! But did you know that you can’t eat your way to hormone balance? AND, as you age and your hormone levels become depleted (even if you eat healthy) you become ripe for disease.”. They are always shocked. “Really?” is their skeptical response. Yep! But don’t take my word for it! Do your own reading and research! Get on my website-happyhormonecottage.com and click on the “recommended readings” button across the top. We have lots of articles and books that are all about natural hormone balance. Better yet-ask for some of these for Christmas. Even if you are one of the lucky few who aren’t symptomatic with hormone imbalance symptoms: sleeplessness, fatigue, depression, anxiety, low libido, hot flashes, dry skin, night sweats, hair loss, weight gain etc.
your hormone levels WILL deplete with age and you will be at risk for dementia and heart disease (low estrogen), osteoporosis (low testosterone, progesterone, estrogen) and breast cancer (too much estrone, not enough progesterone). Also, for women who have gone through menopause, you are most definitely NOT done with hormones. This is when you need them to prevent disease.  Truly, hormone replacement with customized hormone therapy, IS your anti-aging strategy. Again, education, enlightenment and empowerment are key!
