Hormone Imbalance can present as mood problems, energy issues, weight gain, skin concerns, pelvic pain, “bad” periods, and irregular cycles.
Hormones are chemical messengers that coordinate or control processes throughout your body. There are at least 60 different hormones in humans, and we’re only beginning to understand how what we eat affects them. This is so much greater than estrogen and testosterone!
A hormone balancing diet focuses on removing common trigger foods that lead to weight gain, gut dysbiosis, skin problems, and more. It is as much about removing triggers as it is about INCREASING therapeutic foods. Typically, a high-fiber diet can be helpful for complete detoxification of excess hormones. The BEAN PROTOCOL is one such diet. This Hormone Healing Diet Guide uses the principles of the bean protocol and detoxification to ensure proper nutrition for supporting hormone balance.
