Have you tried these simple swaps for hormone balance?

Investing in your health in this way doesn’t need to cost the earth or be done all at once, but these are some key items to switch out in your kitchen to block hormone-disrupting substances from entering your body–and of course the bodies of your family.

This is because substances like plastics, BPAs, dish soap fragrances and parabens, harsh chemicals and Teflon are not only toxic to your body, tiny amounts can get into your body through your food and kitchenware… then get stored in your fat cells.

They can begin to give your body instructions that lead to hormone dysfunction. Hormones are like messengers. So, the question is: which messages do you want to give to your body?

Positive ones, right?

Which kitchen utensils and products will you switch out first? We’d love to know in the comments below!



It’s no surprise really that many people are being told that they have high estrogen when you consider that xenoestrogens are all around us.

Xenoestrogens are man-made chemicals found in:

- Cosmetics

- Tap water

- Fragrances

- Birth control pills

- Toys (including slime)

- Receipts

- Sunscreen

- Artificial food dyes

- Basically all forms of plastic and home furnishings just to name a few.

They mimic our own estrogen but can be 1000X more powerful and may be significantly contributing to hormone imbalance.

And what’s more, most of us aren’t consuming the right levels of nutrients that can help safeguard you against estrogen imbalance…

As well as put you back on course when hormone levels begin to move away from the optimum ratios.

Your liver needs certain cofactors and enzymes to do this more effectively.

Want the juicy details?

Here they are:

A: Magnesium, vitamin B6 promote the methylation of catechol estrogens (2-OH and 4-OH). Methylation is a very important detoxification process that happens in the liver.

B: Vitamins A & E reduce how much catechol estrogens oxidize, a process which can cause DNA damage and gene toxicity (or “genotoxicity”).

C: Magnesium, flavonoids and vitamins promote the detoxification of estrogens by helping detoxification enzymes to do their job correctly for proper estrogen balance.

That’s why we love Hormone Balance & Protect by Biotics Research.

It contains the above nutrients as well as others at dosages designed to help you balance the hormones in your body.

To balance your hormones in the most effective way, it’s important to choose the most powerful tools and strategies, right?

Here’s where to focus your attention for more balance in your body and mood:

1: Avoid snoozing

When you begin to wake up, your “sleep hormone” melatonin naturally starts to drop, and your “it’s time to go!” hormone cortisol kicks in and will help you feel refreshed. Except when you snooze instead, the cascade of hormones that are released after cortisol doesn’t get triggered in the same way… This can make you feel sleep inertia, or sleep drunkenness, as well as cause digestive issues, like missing your morning p**p.

2: Eat nutrient-dense food

You like to think that your body should handle anything that comes it's way with perfect poise, and it does… As best it can! Nutrients are the building blocks of your body and all the substances and structures it creates. In short, when you consume enough nutrients you give your body the best possible chance of creating hormones and maintaining optimal balance in the systems that surround them.

3: Drink 60-80 ounces of water

In order to protect digestive juices, try drinking ¾-1 quart water 20-30 minutes before a meal. Add lemon or drink natural herbal teas instead if you really don’t like plain water.

4: Move every 90 mins

Hormones travel around the body through our bloodstream, so to get them where they need to go, and maximize your body function… You could get up from your chair when at the office and walk a little, stretch. And have you ever tried yoga, which is designed to massage your organs, including your hormonal glands? Whichever way feels good, move.

5: 20 minutes of quiet time without electronics

It’s surprising how the little things can be life-changing. Grab a book, a magazine or a loved one for cuddles and watch how refreshing just 20 minutes of quiet time can be!

This simple practice will affect your stress hormones and help boost the activity of your parasympathetic nervous system, which could help support glandular repair.

6: Self-talk for hormonal balance

Simply thinking about stressful situations or imagining negative outcomes can trick your body into believing a real threat is present. And the opposite is also true! Self-affirm, compliment yourself and reassure, to tip the balance back in a healthy direction.

7: Do things that make you happy

Just like exercise, laughter and joy can boost endorphins and dopamine, which in turn tell your body that stress hormones aren’t needed. What makes you feel good? Do that, daily!

Lifestyle changes like these can be very powerful allies in hormonal regulation!

What’s 1 thing above that you can implement immediately and change your life?
