Are your hormones making you sick?
Up until now you might have experienced an array of medical problems which you didn’t know were linked to your hormonal imbalance.
- Too much cortisol causes your body weight to swing out of control.
- Excess testosterone in women can cause them patches of bald skin.
- Too much estrogen in men leads to erectile dysfunction.
Thyroid, testosterone, cortisol, and growth hormone disorders cause sleep disorders.

Truth of the matter is, after a certain age, we all experience endocrine disorders, which might even worsen, due to our poor eating habits.

However, when you indulge in unhealthy foods and have a sedentary lifestyle, you’re doing the opposite.

Top Foods that Automatically Rebalance Your Hormones
Extra Virgin Coconut Oil
It helps balance your hormones due to its fatty acids that promote thyroid function (responsible for how fast your heart beats and how fast you burn your calories). In addition to this, it also:
- Speeds metabolism.
- Promotes weight loss.
- Boosts immunity.
- Stabilizes blood sugar levels.
- Protects against infection from viruses, bacteria, yeast, parasites, and fungi.
- Inactivates harmful microbes in your gut that can lead to hormonal imbalance.
I recommend a daily intake of two to three tablespoons of extra virgin coconut oil in the morning for three months.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Besides balancing hormones naturally, olive oil also stimulates the production of the appetite-suppressing hormone called leptin. Drizzle this oil over healthy salads and you will feel filled and satisfied.
Organic Butter and Ghee
They contain valuable amounts of fat-soluble vitamins like A, D, E, and K2, which are the key building blocks for hormone production.
Due to its content of important dietary estrogens (called lignans) and rich supplies of Vitamin E, Zinc, and Magnesium, quinoa helps balance hormones.
In addition, lignans also have anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory properties. While also reducing the risk of heart disease and lowering cholesterol levels.
Pick eggs from grass-fed, cage-free, and pasture-raised chickens. They are a clean protein source.
Not to mention that egg yolks contain high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol, which in turn, the body uses to create hormones.
Drinking beetroot juice can balance your hormones and even boost your stamina.
Studies show that beetroot contains dimethylglycine, a substance which helps treat breast, testicular, ovarian, or reproductive diseases.
Nuts and Seeds
Adopting a diet high in nuts and seeds have multiple benefits:
- Almonds increase the levels of the hormone called adiponectin, which helps with blood sugar regulation.
- Pumpkin seeds and flaxseeds are also high in lignans, which block excess estrogens.
- Sunflower, sesame, and pumpkin seeds are also high in Zinc, which supports the immune system and promotes hormone production.
They are very rich in several hormone-balancing nutrients:
- Folic acid
- Vitamins B and E
- Healthy monounsaturated fats
Avocados naturally increase testosterone levels in men and progesterone levels in women.
Herbs and Spices
These are the ones you should include into your daily diet:
- Cayenne pepper
- Dill weed
- Fennel seed
- Lemon grass
It contains necessary omega-3, which are building blocks for cholesterol and hormone production.
It’s also rich in Zinc and Magnesium.
- Make sure your snacks include fruits high in flavonoids such as grapes, citrus fruits, and berries.
- Flavonoids promote cellular regeneration and boost your immunity.
- Don’t shy away from fresh and organic fruit and vegetable juices and smoothies.
They provide you with all the beneficial vitamins and minerals that you need.
- Generously add dark green leafy vegetables like kale, Swiss chard, collard greens, and spinach.
- Cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, and broccoli are also a must.
Limit or Avoid
- Caffeine intake should be limited because studies show that too much wreaks havoc on your endocrine system. Caffeine can be found in coffee, tea, caffeinated soda, and energy drinks.
- Sugar and processed foods also contain additives and preservatives which hinder weight-loss efforts and hormone production. Avoid them at all cost.
- High-glycemic foods with a glycemic index value of 70 or above provoke hormone imbalance.
Therefore, I urge you to avoid foods like:
- Chocolate bars
- Sweetened cereal
- Brown rice
- Refined carbohydrates such as white pasta, white rice, and white flour.
By making healthy choices and incorporating them into your lifestyle you will see rapid improvements.
I urge you to make them as soon as possible and tell me how much your health has improved.
