Tip Of The Week: Eat For Your Hormone Health
Our hormones control how we feel, act, think, and sometimes how we treat others. Though rest, stress management, and physical activity play a part in controlling our hormones, our diets are the most impactful.
Certain foods can disrupt hormonal function and possibly even lead to mood disorders, anxiety, or depression. Some of the most common foods to avoid are: dairy, gluten, processed food, and sugar. Even for those not allergic to gluten, it seems to play a part in the way the brain thinks. Most dairy products have also been linked to brain fog and estrogen imbalance.
Whenever possible, eat whole and unprocessed foods, such as nuts, seeds, leafy greens, fruits and vegetables.
