While hormones play a vital part in a healthy life-style, there’s a lot more to do! The no. 1 mistake a lot of people make is being unaware. Be vigilant about anything that you put in or on your body. Toxic substances in food, creams, shampoos, cleaning products, all add to the xeno-oestrogen overload polluting Mother Earth, that you can eliminate.Learn their names and read the labels. Eliminate sugar from your diet, especially high fructose corn syrup. According to nutrition experts, it’s as addictive as cocaine and heroin, and there’s  new research on how sugar fuels cancer cells, which is their only source of energy. Deprive them of that and they die! Also avoid all artificial sweeteners like Aspartame and the like. There are natural plant based alternatives such as xylitol and stevia.  A good rule of thumb is put nothing on your body that you wouldn’t put in your mouth! There is ALWAYS a healthy alternative.

More than 84,000 chemicals are used in household products, cosmetics, food, and food packaging, and a majority of these have never been tested for safety

Healthy, organic eating is vital for good health. Far too many people eat anything unquestioningly as long as it tastes good. Organisations started to practically poison our food, seemingly without most of us noticing.

Fortunately, some people started waking up, and there’s now a big move to healthy, organic eating.

Food production is one of the basic fundamentals of our society, and if we change our mindset, eating habits and  consumer patterns, corporations will have to respond and adapt to a new market.

The small farmer is getting back to being relevant to the whole chain of production and people are even growing plants and seeds in their homes.

Above all, avoid all processed foods.They are the source of most of the inflammation we suffer from.  We now know that 80% of our immune system resides in our gut, and research shows that your gut flora can affect numerous processes in your body, including your metabolism, energy production, nutrition, and genetic expression. Your intestinal microflora is unique.

Choice of foods can alter your microflora in a matter of days, for better or worse. The ideal way to optimise your gut flora is to include fermented foods in your daily diet. While most probiotic supplements contain no more than 10 billion colony-forming units, one serving of fermented vegetables such as sauerkraut,  can contain 10 trillion colony-forming units of bacteria, and give you a wider variety of beneficial bacteria, so all in all, it’s your most cost effective alternative.

Exercise is also vitally important. Use it or lose it is the key,but it doesn’t have to be hectic. Pilates,Yoga or just stretching 3 times a week, plus 2 sessions of high intensive workout, and of course walking, will do the trick! You can download an app called 7 minute workout, and you only need to do it twice a week.It’s pretty hectic, but hey, 7 minutes twice a week!

Hormones and healthy eating are so closely related that it is fair to say that you simply cannot enjoy good holistic health if your hormones are out of balance – and the balance can be a very fine one. Although some of these symptoms can be related to other conditions, it is certainly worth striving for hormonal balance, and you will find that a healthy, balanced, organic diet can go a long way towards addressing many of your body’s problems.

Learn also how to make use of the incredible power that natural herbs and plants can bring, and the benefits of meditation,  and a positive mindset.
