Womens Health - Balancing Hormones

I noticed a complete change in my cycle, typically mid-cycle spotting. Honestly it scared the ‘be-jesus’ out of me, I started googling and we all know what that leads to, an obsession with the possibility of the big C. Hell No! I’m a single mum, who’s gonna take care of my kids if i’m gone….Then as I started to try to match my symptoms online i.e. noticeable levels of PMS tiredness, fatigue, light-headedness, and spotting 5 days after completing my period, I realised there was an exact pattern and the only logical explanation was a hormonal imbalance*

Luckily I came across two things that have brought me back to the land of my lost youth, but most importantly giving me the peace of mind i very much so needed.

My main goal for 2018, was to become healthy and internally balanced; to just feel like myself again, did I achieve it?

First of all let’s learn a little more about hormones…

When it comes to balancing out your hormones, sometimes that can feel like a huge challenge because there are stressors in life that are pretty hard to deal with. Balancing your hormones naturally can actually be quite exciting, though a lot of people do not know where to begin in this process. How can a person balance out their hormones within the natural state? Does stress play a factor in all of this or is it merely just nature and the way of the beast? Some people will beg to differ, of course, that’s just the way human nature is. What may work for you is the complete opposite of how someone else may go about something in life. That’s just life and to each their own, correct? What is a hormone in the body to even begin with? Well, keep in mind that a hormone is just another chemical and or substance in the body that works as a vessel in people’s bodies that will make them act or do a certain thing, whether that element is good or bad.
Women go through a lot of different hormone changes when they are menstruating or expecting a child. Their hormone levels will tend to go up in high extremities because of all the new chemicals being introduced inside the body at one time. Men will also go through hormone changes in their lives as well, so men, don’t think that you’ll get off that easy when it comes to hormone changes. Men will tend to go through what you’ll probably know of as “having a midlife crisis,” and this occurs around a man’s forties. Their testosterone levels drop, a lot of the times making them act spontaneously and out of character and it all has to do with that hormone change. Did you know that hormones in both men and women’s bodies will control our whole lives? It controls how we think, how we definitely act and even how we smell. Hormones are the next closest component to our brains that control what we do, say, and how we act. Today, we are going to be taking a look at how to balance your hormones in the natural state.

Getting Enough Sleep Throughout the Night

Balancing Hormones

Getting enough sleep throughout the night is so vital when it comes to balancing out your hormones at any age. When you don’t get enough sleep throughout the night no matter what age you are, that behavioral pattern can have major effects on your body, mind, and spirit. It is recommended that an adult get at least eight hours of noninterrupted sleep each night, which is quite difficult; absolutely. Keep in mind that when you don’t get enough sleep, your body as in your mind cannot function in the appropriate formats to win each day at life. Your mind may tend to feel a bit foggy; as if you are in some type of daze and not to mention the mood swings.

Getting enough sleep throughout the night plays a huge role in balancing your hormones on the daily basis because when you are not leveled out, your mind and body cannot function at the level of certainty needed to support a healthier you. If you are one to have trouble sleeping throughout the night, it would be best to take some herbal supplements or drink some Sleepy Time Tea right before you go onto bed, that way your system will feel as though it’s naturally shutting down for a great night’s sleep. My preferred beverage is chamomile tea and if you prefer you can always add some lemon or a teaspoon of honey as a natural sweetener. The brand I prefer is Pukka organic, the teabags are infused with vanilla and Manuka honey. I love love the taste, so soothing and does the job. Pukka Organic Chamomile tea

It’s always better to try your best to get eight hours of sleep in each night, so you will be able to function with high speed throughout the next day, taking care of yourself, as well your family. Imagine if you only obtained two hours of sleep per night. How on Earth do you think that would make your body and mind feel, and nonetheless, how do you think your hormones would think you? That’s right; they wouldn’t! Your hormones would be all over the place in your body, making you feel tired, grouchy, and just like your truly not balanced out and really, you wouldn’t be. I quickly discovered how important a good nights sleep is, since having kids I thought sleep was a luxury; but I quickly discovered that my interrupted sleep was due to bad air conditions in my property, I combat this with a Levoit HEPA air filter, it sucks out impurities in the air, its quiet, smells nice and has improved mine and my kids sleep 100%.

Eating the Proper Diet

Balancing Hormones
Eating a proper diet is an amazing thing to do when it comes to balancing out your hormones. Most people wouldn’t think that eating a specific diet would help in balancing out a person’s hormones, but it truly can. If you eat a lot of fruits and vegetables, you will be able to notice a huge difference in how you comprehend things in life, how much lighter your overall body feels, and even the mind. Your mind will feel so much better if you feed it with the appropriate foods and drinks. Let me give you a small example right fast, okay? Say, you eat out a lot at fast food places, which we all know is super bad for your physical and mental health. All right, so let’s say you do that every day while you are on your way to and from work and then when you get home, you open yourself a boxed dinner and eat it.
Now, what do you think that is going to do to your overall system, both mentally and physically? Not only are you going to gain a lot of weight, but you are going to feel so bogged down in your mind and spirit, that you will not even be able to solve the next life task right in front of you. Now, what I mean by saying that is your motivation levels will tend to go down because you are eating and drinking foods that clog your memory and make you want to just lay around all day long. It’s truly an awful thing to do to your body, and it’s actually a format of self-harm because you know what eating badly will do to your mind and body, yet you go on and do it anyway because it convenient and easy, but just think how hard your liver is trying to work to digest all of that salt and sugar.

As a side note, just think how your hormones are trying to keep up with the change going on in your body. Keep in mind that we are nothing more than a reflection of what’s been reflected upon us and that goes for our hormones, too. What we put into our bodies, our mind and hormones are going to reflect that component, and when we are putting bad foods and drinks into our bodies, the hormones in our bodies can do nothing but act bad and unstable because that’s what we are replenishing into our bodies. Do you see what we are getting at here? It can be a vicious circle, and it’s best if we all don’t get caught up in that.

Trust me I should know, I’ve been battling with my weight for years and this recent health-scare prompted me to change my diet, so I cut out meat and poultry (for a Caribbean woman that’s tough) but its been surprisingly easy as I love seafood, the other two components are 1. limiting my complex carbs intake and 2. drinking 4 cups of organic Oolong tea, which is known for its herbal properties, one being a natural fat burner and the other to balance hormones.

The tea alone is responsible for burning 3 inches of body fat off my body in just 3 weeks (I measure myself regularly) as well as regulating my PMS symptoms making the whole process seamless.

Learning to Meditate

Balancing Hormones

Last but not least….meditation

I’m a true advocate for meditation, in fact I have it as my main image on my vision board, its responsible for calmness in the most testing of times, but is also a great tool for manifesting in real time. I typically meditate in the morning before my shower, you can dedicate as little as 10mins to meditation and it effectively sets the intention for my day. How does this fit into the theme of balancing hormones?

A lot of people nowadays meditate because they want to relieve stressors in their lives, become more flexible and even to get out of the house and meet people! Joining a local Yoga class is an amazing thing to do if you want to balance out your hormones naturally because meditation expands the mind, as well the body to greater brain patterns and behavioral patterns for daily life. The hormones in our bodies control how we think, how we act, and literally everything we do in our lives. Why not try and regulate them so you can feel and perform better in life? It would only make sense that a person would want to feel better, correct? First starting out, it can be hard to focus and meditate but the key factor is to start out small and work your way up and out of your bad mood, your feeling of worthless, and that feeling of not having vibrant life inside of your core. What would be recommended would be to join a Yoga class, where they meet at least once or twice per week.

Typically I tend to lean towards the delight of Hot Yoga and have enjoyed many sessions of Bikram Yoga, although different from the normal conditions the western world have embraced, Bikram yoga will leave you feeling like a new woman inside and out; with its many notable benefits i.e. improved circulation, brain function and heart health, as well as improved posture and coordination; but to name a few. There are many local Hot Yoga centres both nationally and internationally, having tried a couple my preferred centre is located close to home in Middlesex.

Sidenote: Just be conscious of how you manage your week, you cannot live an unhealthy life for five or six days out of the week and go into yoga class for one or two days out of your week, do some simple Yoga and expect your hormones to balance out naturally. It’s an everyday thing that you are going to have to work at.
