Raise Testosterone With Fasting

2020-11-12T21:50:50+00:00Fasting for Women, Fasting Techniques|

When I talk about the hormone testosterone, clients often think the topic only applies to men, however testosterone plays an equally important role in women. Common symptoms of low testosterone in women can look like depression and mood swings, low libido, muscle loss or an inability to put on muscle. How does testosterone get made?  This is a good question, because men and women make testosterone in different parts of the body. But the signaling system for both men and women starts in the brain. The brain, specifically the hypothalamus and pituitary gland sends a message down to the ovaries (if you’re a woman) and the testes (if you're a male) to tell those organs to produce testosterone.  However,

How to use fasting to support Progesterone 

2020-10-28T15:39:41+00:00Fasting for Women, Health|

Let’s talk progesterone….my favorite hormone, because progesterone has a calming effect on the body and is the hormone that keeps estrogen in check. Progesterone is mainly produced in a woman’s ovaries and it’s levels naturally fluctuate around a woman's menstrual cycle. So, How to use fasting to support Progesterone? As we approach midlife, progesterone begins to decline. So women over 40 or going through their menopause years will inevitably experience an up and down roller coaster and subsequent decline in progesterone as you go into postmenopausal years. If this might be you, I also recommend grabbing my new book, The Menopause Reset for tips and tricks on how to navigate menopause years with grace and ease.  If not due

Balancing Hormones With Fasting: 6 Steps

2020-10-01T04:18:00+00:00Health|

Balancing hormones isn’t just important for women, but men too. Hormones secreted by the endocrine system are used by cells for communication between body tissues including the brain, organs, other glands, muscles, etc. When hormone levels are out of balance, our mood, digestion, weight, stress, sexual function, sleep, energy, blood sugar levels, and, for women, ovulation and even fertility are impacted.  In my new video I share 6 things to know when using fasting to balance hormones. They are presented in no particular order, because all six are important.  6 Steps for Balancing Hormones  Hormones work as a team. Addressing one hormone often means looking at all hormones on the team. This is important for balancing hormones. When adrenals

The key to balancing your hormones lies within the concept of the hormonal hierarchy. I know, who knew that hormones had a hierarchy? What I mean by this is that certain hormones have more power over others. So, if you want to influence sex hormones (at the bottom of the hierarchy), you need to work on your oxytocin, cortisol and insulin levels.  So, if you’re struggling with fasting or balancing your hormones (PCOS, mood swings, menopause, etc), there are a few things that you should understand... Let's start by understanding the hormonal hierarchy. Oxytocin Oxytocin is at the top of the hormone hierarchy, thus the most influential hormone. It’s known as the "cuddle hormone" or the "love hormone," because

Let me say this loud and clear, women should be fasting.

Specifically, they found 5 different categories where fasting helps women. Cancer This meta analysis looked at 3 different types of fasts and how they affected cancer.
