Eat a Balanced Diet

First and foremost, the body knows when it’s out of balance. It will let you know in the form of fatigue, moodiness, sleep issues, unhealthy amounts of weight gain or weight loss, hair loss, focus problems, blood sugar spikes, and a low libido. Of course, there are other ways it can let you know as well, but relating to your hormones, those are some of the most common issues. Diet is one of the best ways to influence a healthy balance in your lifestyle because a healthy diet will support your sleep and also support how well you handle stress. Be sure to include a variety of whole food, plant-based options such as leafy greens, unlimited amounts of veggies, fresh fruits (especially berries and apples both easy on the glycemic index), whole grains versus processed grains, and plant-based proteins such as beans, legumes, nuts, and seeds. These foods provide vitamins, minerals, necessary fatty acids and protein, which are all needed for a healthy endocrine system. Also be sure to take in some healthy seaweed, superfoods, and herbs and spices all rich in antioxidants. Fresh foods will help support a healthy endocrine system, especially green vegetables and root vegetables. These foods fight off harmful fake estrogenic compounds we encounter through the environment and factory farmed animal products. They also all contain amino acids that hormones need to function properly. They also help prevent health issues such as heart disease, diabetes, depression, and cancer. These foods also fuel a healthy sleep cycle by providing key amounts of calcium, magnesium, amino acids, and trace minerals that assist with relaxing the body and ensuring a good night’s rest. Best of all, they contain fiber to keep you full and lower insulin levels naturally.
