Hormone Balancing Foods

Hormone health is critical to how every area of life goes forward. You deserve to have everything great happen for you at work, in relationships and in life. I have found that  by eating more hormone balancing foods, I feel betterHormones should be a graceful wave, ebbing and flowing through the month. In women, the luteal phase before a period is especially susceptible to challenges. If hormones are not flowing gracefully, you might face problems. Are you on the constant search for hormone balancing foods? I think that you’re in the right place!

Do your need hormone balancing foods?

Your endocrine system requires the support of proteins and fats. It can then maintain blood sugar balance, adrenal balance and hormonal balance. One of the ways that you can be full of energy and have a balanced mood is to eat hormone balancing foods.

Do you struggle with your hormones?

As a woman, you probably might struggle with cravings, low energy, insomnia and mood fluctuations during the luteal phase. I had deep benefits by working on my blood sugar balance and hormone balance through food and lifestyle. Hormone balancing foods are deeply supportive to better mood, energy and health. This is a great indulgence. I have found it deeply beneficial and supportive to better energy and even better moods.

Hormone Balancing Choco Hazelnut Cream

As you keep seeing all my recipes, I have three stars of the show. In this case, it’s dark chocolatehazelnuts and raisins. Remember my mantra, which is enjoy food from concept to creation to consumption! You really want to bring your awareness. Intention matters. If you think that your hormones needs some support with a great hormone balancing food, try this simple recipe, loaded with brilliant ingredients.

Let’s breakdown the ingredients of this recipe before going into it:

This hormone balancing chocolate hazelnut cream is a wonderful indulgence when you are craving chocolate and something sweet. Are you premenstrual? This is a great treat!

  1. Dark Chocolate– Dark Chocolate is a rich antioxidant, powerfully fighting oxidative stress and supportive to energy. It is rich in magnesium which helps during the luteal phase for women. It could also play a key role in brain health! I consider it a hormone balancing food. Do be cautious with dark chocolate. Although it might seem to be portrayed as a super food, it is also very high in histamine. I have  a problem with it due to skin conditions and allergies. For more information on vitamins and minerals, read my e-book!
  2. Hazelnuts–Hazelnuts are rich in healthy fats, and loaded with magnesium and calcium. Both minerals are required in higher amounts during the luteal phase. It is heart healthy and good for your skin, bones, joints, muscles and dgestive system. The healthy fats makes this a hormone balancing food.
  3. Raisins–This natural sweetener is especially good for hormones because they ease constipation and optimised hormone metabolism. When they are combined with healthy fats and proteins, it maintains stable blood sugar. They are rich in vitamins, minerals, fibre and pack a punch, provided they are used moderately.

If you have chronic fatigue, then you do need to consider deeper root causes. You can read about root causes to chronic fatigue here. Always remind yourself that food is medicine!

Thank you all for enjoying the Phytothrive journey. It’s time to say goodbye to it.

When Phytothrive began many years ago, my focus was purely on Functional Medicine, and I felt entrusted to share the knowledge of this in India, where it was quite unknown. Since then, I have gone through a process of unlearning and relearning, both professionally and personally.

I very much knew that the true essence of healing lies in India, the sacred land of yoga and Ayurveda. This inner discovery shed the light of needing to come back to the source where I began more than two decades ago, which was within the magical space of eastern ancient wisdom. I will be doing this on this very account which is now @ohahealth

Since then I have fully integrated Ayurveda and Functional Medicine, and my work has taken a new expression. I hope you will be with me and watch it unfold as Oha.

Oha is a word from The Rig Vedas, in Sanskrit with profound meanings including knowledge, excellence and the ability to bring things closer.

A new journey begins with this letting go and releasing, while embracing something new, and brings forth the promise of a whole lot more. I pray you will continue to be a part of this new journey!

Book Acquisition by HarperCollins India

Here’s that exciting news I spoke about to coincide with the one year anniversary of The Sleep Whisperer Podcast! Writing a book and becoming part of that magical group of authors is a dream!

Three years ago I wrote a book which I titled Sleep Whisperer, looking at sleep from a very in depth perspective, and tying together the cutting-edge science of functional medicine and eastern ancient wisdom. The story of how I wrote that book is indeed magical and a mixture of spiritual guidance and astrology(by my spiritual guide and mentor Shyam @himalayan.yogi ). It’s also been a lot of sacrifice and hard work during times that were stressful, challenging and testing in all ways.

The journey of the book from concept to acquisition is also a magical path which I will share much later. For now, I’m just humbled, grateful and quite simply excited to announce that the book has been acquired by Sonal Nerurkar @sonal_nerurkar of @harpercollinsin HarperCollins India! Sonal’s faith in the book has been unwavering and I’ll forever be grateful for it. I can’t wait for the final book release next year!

None of this would be possible without the trust, hard work, dedication and patience of my most beautifully warm literary agent Jayapriya Vasudevan @jayapriyavasudevan of Jacaranda Literary Agency. I cannot put into words what her belief in the book and being my warrior for it means to me.

I’m also deeply grateful for the dear colleagues and mentors who have made contributions to the book. That is a surprise for later! You can follow everything about the sleep podcast and book at @mysleepwhisperer
