Female Hormone Health
Toxins disrupt the delicate hormonal balance of the human body. Chemicals (xeno-estrogens) in food, plastics, cleaning products, and cosmetics disrupt hormonal balance in the body. Non-natural foods create immune reactions destroying glands and disrupting detoxification. Stressful and sugar-laden lifestyles create wear and tear on these delicate systems.

- Symptoms: bloating, fatigue, irritability, hair-loss, mood-swings, brain-fog, insomnia, weight gain, anxiety, low-libido.
- Conditions: Breast cancer, ovarian cancer, diabetes, metabolic disease, thyroid dysfunction, infertility, polycystic ovaries (PCOS).
Balance is Critical
Hormones work together as 'accelerators' and 'brakes', when they get out of balance control is lost. They also share biological building-blocks, so an excess of one leads to a shortage of another, for example, stress hormones divert resources needed for fertility hormones
Throughout the menstrual cycle hormone variations trigger changes, such as thickening of the womb-lining. After menopause hormone levels drop, but ratios remain the same. Artificial hormones mess-up these levels and the liver can't remove chemicals quickly enough. Fortunately, you can restore your healthy hormone balance naturally, following the next tips.
How Dietary Decisions Affect Hormonal Balance

- Hemp seeds: fiber and fats positively impacting hormonal health.
- Walnuts: fats that reduce inflammation and balance hormones.
- Green Leafy Veg: reduce inflammation, improve mood, lower stress.
Avoid artificial, processed, and genetically modified foods that confuse the body and create havoc with hormone health. Stick to the natural foods in Dr. Sebi's Nutritional Guide.

- Liver - removes toxins and breaks down used hormones.
- Kidneys - filters blood, returns hormones back into circulation.
