You are alive because of brilliant biochemistry. Your body is made of trillions of cells that are formed from the same carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen in stars that shined brightly billions of years ago. Your trillions of cells all communicate through hormones. The hormones are loyal messengers to your body, allowing your health to thrive in ways we usually take for granted until it's gone.
When there is hormone imbalance, problems occur. Weight comes up; energy goes down. Your mood, digestion, and brain can all struggle when you have hormonal imbalances. As a functional medicine practitioner talking with people around the world, hormone problems are some of the most common things that I see.
Using food as medicine, my goal is to bring optimal function so that my patients regain their vibrant health. Here are three of my favorite tools to use for hormone imbalances: one for thyroid, adrenal, and sex hormone health.
So, drink up, and heal your hormones with good food medicine.
