Have you noticed your healthy eating habits have fallen by the wayside now that you're back to the grind? 😬 . I admit to you that mine have. ✨ . Entertaining family from out-of-town has involved a lot of eating out and I haven't been living 'the natural hormone healing lifestyle'. I give myself permission to slip up sometimes and it's okay if you do as well. But my body doesn't feel great because of my choices. This is what I tell myself: yes, I failed to stick to my healthy lifestyle under pressure. But what's important is to get back on my feet andre-commit to a healthy lifestyle. I won't allow the negative emotions of failure (and the extra weight) stick with me. So this is my plan to re-embrace my healthy lifestyle: A deadline-based cleanse or a 'reset'. I'm motivated to go all-in to renew my energy, feel focused, and lose the extra pounds. I'm starting tomorrow and I would like to invite you to join me. My deadline is Canadian Thanksgiving (yay!), which is a 10-day commitment. My reset involves eating a lot of hormone health superfoods and eliminating sugar, gluten, dairy, and alcohol to feel some serious benefits. Accountability is key so let's do it together. I want you to join me! Reply to this email and I'll send you a free cleansing guide with the guidelines and 10 cleansing recipes. If you want this cleansing guide comment to let me know your goals for the cleanse then message me and I'll send you the link. ❤️😍 . If you are in any of my online courses this is a great time to recommit to the material since everything you get in E4YC and my Adrenal healing coaching is cleanse friendly. .

Are you prone to afternoon or late-night snack attacks? If so, you aren’t alone. ❤️ . A lot of people identify as ‘snackers’ and would prefer to graze all day than to have three square meals. But did you know that if your snacking habits are driven by cravings, it may be a sign of a blood sugar imbalance? This kind of imbalance also affects your hormones. 🥑 . In my atest guest article on @yogiapproved I share information on blood sugar imbalances and hormone imbalances, along with a few tasty ways to address them... including a special recipe. Check it out with my #linkinmybio👆 💃 . #hormones #hormoneimbalance #hormonebalance #yogi #yogiapproved #ttcjourney #ttcsupport #pcos #pcossupport #pcosdiet

The menstrual phase (aka your inner winter) is a fresh start to nourish and care for your body and prepare for the month ahead. A warm chia pudding with some raspberries and banana is a perfect way to nourish your body during this phase in your cycle. . .

Did you know you can add black sesame seeds to your smoothies? 💃 . The women in our Adrenal Healing Coaching Program love this recipe! It fits in perfectly with an adrenal fatigue diet. Madeline included specific ingredients to help the adrenal fatigue recovery process. ❤️ . Black sesame seeds act as the ‘fat’ in this smoothie. As a matter of fact, traditional Chinese medicine believes that all black-colored foods nourish the kidneys, prevent aging and help to ‘recharge your battery’ when you’re feeling depleted. You can typically find black sesame seeds at Asian markets or health food stores. ✨ . You can get this recipe on our blog with the #linkinmybio👆 . .

TTC? Let's talk about how you can support your body for the first 14 days after conception. ❤️ ✨ Your corpus luteam is the 'shell' leftover from the egg that was just fertilized. It produces the majority of your progesterone which is essential for pregnancy to occur. Here's what you can do: 🎆 . 1. Reduce stress because increased cortisol decreases progesterone. I know this can be hard because you may be experiencing an array of emotions if you've been on the ttc journey. Make a commitment to carve out some time every day to relax your nervous system. I would suggest a yogi nidra meditation. ❤️ . 2. Eat to support your progesterone production. Eat foods that are high in fat-soluble vitamin a (the corpus luteam has the highest concentration in the body). Do this by taking cod liver oil, eating some grass-fed liver or eat a serving of mussels. Foods high in vitamin C like red pepper, fermented ser kraut and doing a lemon water will also support progrsterone. ✨ .

{Hormone Balancing Tip} Essential oils have a variety of hormone balancing benefits, which is why they have earned a place in my natural healing toolkit. . . I released a new blog today on my tips to use oils for hormone balance. One powerful way to use them that you may not know about is estrogen & progesterone balance. . . Some oils contain natural phytoestrogen which can restore balance to your estrogen and progesterone levels. If you’re looking to balance your menstrual cycle or ease menopause symptoms, these oils are for you. Some phytoestrogen oils are lavender, clary sage, basil, and geranium. Vitex is one of the only oils that promotes progesterone. . . You can learn more about how to use the oils for estrogen detox, libido and adrenal fatigue recovery with the #linkinmybio🔥. . . What's your favorite essential oil?

When you have a hormone imbalance it’s really important to know how to navigate through all the trending diets.You need to be able to find an eating approach that supports you and works with your lifestyle. ✨ . Women’s bodies are sensitive and hormones can be disrupted easily from a calorie deficit, carb restriction (which can impair ovulation), and also intermittent fasting. 🤔 . This week, I wrote a blog all about intermittent fasting and women’s hormone balance. ✨ . Intermittent fasting has some really impressive benefits like, effortless weight loss, reducing insulin resistance, improving cognition and increasing human growth hormone ❤️ . But when done improperly, it can actually worsen your hormone imbalance and stop you from getting results. ✨ . Go to the #linkinmybio to read the full article and find out what hormone related conditions it's good for and when it right be avoided. . #intermittentfasting #diettrends #pcosweightloss #pcossucks #pcossupport #hormonebalance #hormonehealth #healthylifestyle #balanceddiet #matcha #matchalatte

What happens when you have symptoms of a hormone imbalance but you don’t know why. Or you know why, but you don’t know the root of why it’s happening. Or you know the root, but your treatment methods aren't working.... It can be a frustrating process 😞 🤔 . . Maybe you have acne and you’ve tried every diet imaginable but you still don’t understand why it’s happening. . . Or you're trying to conceive but your doctor says you have unexplained infertility. . . You go to a naturopath or natural health practitioner and get put on a supplement protocol but it doesn’t work. Then you try another protocol but it also doesn't work. This trial and error process doesn't work for you because you're running out of time. . . Here's what you should do: . . 1. Consider getting full hormone testing like the Dutch test. This will allow you to get on a targeted protocol and start addressing what’s going on through lifestyle and diet more effectively. You won’t have to spend money on supplements that aren’t fully supportive for you. No more shooting in the dark. . . 2. Get on a nutrition protocol that supports your hormone health and fertility. I developed Eating For Your Cycle because it’s an eating protocol that gives you nutritional building blocks through your cycle to support optimal hormones, egg quality (which influences progesterone and fertility) and blood sugar balance. It’s also anti-inflammatory and encourages ovulation. It's a way of having all of your bases covered and stacking the odds in your favor. . If you’d like to learn more about Eating For Your Cycle send me a direct message and i'll get back to you with options or check out the course with the #linkinmybio. You can start using it today to get results. . . . #healthcoach #fertilitycoach #womenshealth #womenswellness #hormonebalance #hormoneimbalance #ttcsupport #womenshealthcoach #mindbodygreen #wellandgood #healthylifestyle #sacredfeminine #healthylifestylemovement #hormones #hormonehealth #morningritual #eatingforyourcycle #ttccommunity #ttcsupport #justbreathe #fitforme #lookwithin #cleanliving #loveyourcycle #holisticliving #nourishyourself #wellpreneur #ttcjourney #ttccommunity
