What’s the Best Fast For PCOS?

2021-11-24T06:22:07+00:00Health|

Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that affects up to 10% of U.S. women of childbearing age. That's about 5 million women, which makes PCOS one of the most common hormonal endocrine disorders among women of reproductive age. Women with PCOS tend to produce higher-than-normal amounts of male hormones, like testosterone. This hormone imbalance can cause irregular periods, infertility, polycystic ovaries, acne and excess facial and body hair. While the exact cause of PCOS isn’t known, there are three factors that influence PCOS: Insulin resistance—this I believe is the root cause of PCOS, I talk about why below.

5 Steps to Manage Menopause Naturally 

2021-04-13T00:07:29+00:00Health|

Menopausal hormones  First, let’s talk about what actually happens to women during menopause, because this is an often misunderstood time in women’s lives. As women approach midlife, sex hormone production slowly begins to decline over the course of 10-15 years, aka menopause!  During this process, ovaries hand over the job of making sex hormones progesterone, estrogen and testosterone to your adrenal glands. If you are like most women I know, your adrenals might already be taxed with everyday stress, family, work obligations, etc. When the added work of making hormones is given to adrenals, it often leads to a sudden onset of unpleasant symptoms—low energy, weight gain, hot flashes, fatigue, headaches, insomnia, anxiety and depression.  The decline in estrogen

After the age of 40, women’s estrogen begins to decline. Unfortunately this doesn’t usually happen in a steady, calm way, but often what feels more like a wild roller coaster ride! First let's talk about why we have hot flashes. The decline in estrogen triggers the hypothalamus in the brain, which believes it needs to heat the body up, raising your body temperature and creating what feels like a “hot flash”. The good news is there are many ways to manage hot flashes naturally. Three types of Estrogen 3 Types of estrogen Women have 3 types of estrogen, two are helpful estrogens and one is a harmful, cancer causing estrogen.

Should I fast if I don’t have a cycle?

2021-03-25T19:08:41+00:00Health|

Should you fast if you don’t have a cycle? The short answer is yes! In fact, fasting may be the healing tool that energizes your cycle. Fasting has the ability to bring the body into homeostasis and balance, allowing to naturally regulate sex hormones, estrogen, progesterone and testosterone. The key is understanding how to use fasting to help your cycle. Women can lose their cycle for a variety of reasons. Women may be on birth control, have had a hysterectomy, are in the perimenopausal, menopausal or postmenopausal stage of life, or have a condition such as PCOS.  However, many women aren't sure why they don’t have a cycle. In these cases, I recommend doing a Dutch Hormone Test. The

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,
