Here at The Educated Dieter, we want to provide you with a wealth of information on how to optimize your hormone health, and manage menstrual-related symptoms. Some of our top tips for supporting a healthy menstrual cycles with our clients include the following …
Balancing Blood Sugar Blood
Blood sugar imbalances can have a profound effect on your hormone health, and can lead to symptoms like mood swings, fatigue, and irregular cycles. We recommend an eating cycle that keeps your calories in maintenance, and includes protein, healthy fats, carbs in the right amounts, and fiber to help regulate blood sugar levels.
Chronic stress can disrupt the delicate balance of hormones involved in the menstrual cycle, and can lead to irregular cycles and other menstrual-related symptoms. We highly recommend incorporating stress-reducing practices like walking, yoga, meditation, and deep breathing into your daily routine.
Supporting Liver Function
The liver plays a key role in hormone metabolism and elimination of waste, therefore, supporting liver function can help optimize your hormone health. We recommend incorporating liver-supportive foods like leafy greens, cruciferous vegetables like broccoli for the (DIM), and beets into your diet. If you prefer supplements, magnesium and milk thistle can be great additions to your morning routine and can help with proper detoxification.
Supporting Gut Health
Gut health and hormone health are closely intertwined, and imbalances in the gut microbiome can have a negative effect on menstrual health. We recommend incorporating gut-supportive foods like fermented vegetables and probiotics into your diet to help promote a healthy gut microbiome, as well as making sure you are having a daily bowel movement to help with detoxification.
In conclusion, the menstrual cycle is a complex and dynamic process that plays a vital role in the health and well-being of all women. By understanding the various factors that influence the menstrual cycle, and by implementing strategies to support hormone health, women can optimize their menstrual health, know what to expect, learn about the different phases, become educated about their own bodies, and live their best lives.
