Anyone wishing Monday was a Friday because you just got your period? 🌷 . Even though getting off work may not be an option remember that this is the time in your cycle to rest and restore. Take a look at your schedule and see if there is anything you can possibly get out of. The way you bleed can set you up for a month of more energy and connection to your body ❤️ Image by @josie.doodles

Do you experience painful cramps? Are you in so much pain that you have to call in ‘sick’ to work a couple days in a row? Do you take meds to ease your pain even though you would prefer a natural remedy? You need to know that cramps have no single cause. I recommend that you request a pelvic ultrasound to rule out endometriosis, cysts, fibroids, polyps or a tilted uterus. This is especially important if you never used to have bad cramps and you just started to get them now. If you are looking for natural remedies be sure to also download our Cramp Reduction Protocol. You’ll get some effective anti-inflammatory recipes and an effective herbal protocol that has worked well for my past clients. Get it here with the link in my profile.

Coffee, do I need to give it up if I have a hormone issue? This is an FAQ for sure, and deep down you’re probably wondering about it too! So look no further, here are my thoughts: 🤔 . 1. Do you rely on coffee for an energy boost? If you go a day without coffee and you feel low energy, this is a red flag. It literally means coffee is reducing your energy. Cut back if this is you. ☕ . 2. Do you feel burnt out, or maybe you have adrenal fatigue? If you’re stressed to the max, you need to reduce all forms of stress you have control over. Coffee is essentially ‘liquid stress’ because it increases cortisol and adrenaline. It can also send you over the top if you struggle with anxiety. ✨ . 3. Do you have bad PMS or estrogen dominance? In addition to stress hormones, coffee may also increase estrogen. If this is you, try to replace coffee with green tea. 🍵 . If you choose to drink coffee, avoid developing a coffee addition and don’t drink it daily. Instead, drink a cup when you need help to accomplish a tough task that requires a boost of energy, focus and performance. ✨ . . For example, try an espresso shot right before a workout when you want an energy boost. Or enjoy a coup before a writing or study session. In this way, you can let coffee work for you rather than against you as you enjoy the flavor of your favorite drink. If you are feeling burnt out you can also try making adrenal elixirs like the one in the photos. If you want to get our ebook send me a private message and I'll give you the link. ❤️ . . 📸@misbercis from our elixirs for adrenal fatigue ebook

Sometimes I need to take a break and make up an elixir with energizing and hormone balancing herbs (one of the benefits or working from home!) 🍵 . Today is a matcha latte that I make with a base of gynostemma tea to assist in stress reduction. I then add the tea to a blending and add 1 tsp matcha, 2 tsp lucuma, 1 tsp pearl powder, 1 tsp ghee, 1/2 tsp vanilla extra, 1 scoop collagen peptides and honey or stevia to taste. ❤️ . Elixirs are so wonderful because you can make yourself 'coffee shop' lattes from home and upgrade them to be healing and balancing to your hormones. They are all dairy free and gluten free and you can customize them for certain health concerns. ✨ I am really excited to be relaunching my elixirs for adrenal fatigue ebook this week!

I'm in my ovulatory phase today which is also known as the summer of my cycle. ❤️ . I am so grateful that my activities are aligning with the outward energy of this phase. I'm in the middle of teaching back-to-back classes (one out of town) and my natural high energy has been supporting you. ✨ . One interesting fact is that a women may notice her communication skills increase during ovulation so it's a perfect time for public speaking. 💃 . Where are you in your cycle today? What are you noticing?

Do you keep on falling into the pattern of burn out and recovery? The key to breaking this pattern could through your menstrual cycle. What? Your menstrual cycle follows a natural energy pattern of expansion and contraction where your energy increases around ovulation and decreases during your premenstrual and menstrual phase. Our society, expects us to be 'on' all the time and basically is asking us to be in our high energy, sexy ovulatory phase. This is what's causing the burn out. If you go with the flow of your cycle and schedule productive work during ovulation and rest more during menstruation you can get back into sync with you and reduce burn out. ❤️ . It starts with awareness. I recommend first taking note daily of what day you are in your cycle and seeing how you feel. This natural awareness will help you honor your body and get back in connection to yourself. ✨ . In the comments, let me know where you are you in your cycle today and in couple words what are you experiencing.

In my happy place creating nourishing food. I have been focusing a lot on fertility nutrition lately because I believe it is something to start before you are actively trying to conceive. ✨ . Ancient cultures used to prioritize giving nutrient dense 'fertility foods' to all women in their child bearing years and I think it's something we need to bring back into our culture. Think about it, our ancestors prioritized it without even being exposed to the amount of chemicals and endocrine distributors that we are today. 😮 . Even if you don't want to conceive on the future having optimal fertility = optimal hormone balance. I know a lot of you are busy and you don't have time to focus on getting fertility nutrients in each meal. 🥑 . A good remedy for this is to drink a smoothie every day that is nutrient dense and full or fertility super foods. I created a new fertility smoothie ebook that gives you recipes on making fertility smoothies for the different phases of your menstrual cycle. ❤️ . You can learn more and get a copy of the book with the link in my profile. ✨ . I'd also love to hear your thoughts on fertility nutrition before conception? Anyone else focusing on this? . . . . . . . #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 #liveinspired #wellpreneur #wellnessjourney #wellnesscoach

When you open up that perfect pomegranate ❤️🙌 It's pomegranate season and yes, they do have hormone balancing benefits! 💃💃💃 . Pomegranates are a symptom of fertility and abundance in ancient cultures. The mythology of ancient Greece regarded this fruit as the symbol of life and rebirth in the story of Persephone. ❤️ . Pomegranates contain phytoestrogens so they are beneficial to consume during menopause to reduce hot flashes and during the first half of your cycle when your estrogen is the star hormone. Avoid phytoestrogen foods in the second half of your cycle as it may interfere with your progesterone balance. ✨ . I bought a bag of pomegranates last week and have been eating 1 daily during my period and follicular phase of my cycle. ✨ . Who else has been snacking on pomegranates this week?

If you’re trying to conceive, you know that fertility nutrition, meaning a nutrient-dense diet, is essential. However, did you know that you can supercharge your fertility if you customize your nutrition for the phases of your menstrual cycle? We call this method Eating For Your Cycle. Each phase of the menstrual cycle has its own unique requirements to build, balance, and detox hormones. You can include specific foods in each phase to improve fertility and boost your chances of conception. 🌼 . The Menstrual Phase (your period) An optimal period equals optimal health and fertility! The best foods to eat are ones that expel old blood, prevent ‘uterine stagnation’ and prepare your womb for your baby. Blood-building soups, hearty, warming stews and home-made herbal teas are the best foods to eat. They prevent painful cramping, heavy flow and clotting. Try my nutrient-dense Miso Mushroom ‘Moon Stew’, which you can make ahead to limit cooking during your period. 🍵 . You can read more about what to eat in the other phases on my latest blog post with the link in my profile. ❤️ .

Saturday. The time has come to fill up your well. Give from the overflow that comes from deeply nourishing and loving your self. ❤️ . This past week may have been tough but now is your time to giveback to you. ✨ . A natural state of hormone balance happens from a place of relaxation. Stress is what robs your progesterone, thyroid and adrenal balance. So take the time now to tap back into what nourishes you. This could be dancing to a playlist, taking a bath, resting in bed, self pleasure, nature walks, cooking a healing stew.. it doesn't matter what it is.. it's just about what you need to do to feel like YOU again. 💃💃 . Go beyond self-care and think SOUL care. How are you choosing to nourish yourself this weekend?

Cyclical skin breakouts are not always sign of a hormone imbalance. Many women who struggle with skin breakouts assume that they are hormonal but there is something else at play. 😮 . Skin breakouts are a sign of an imbalance in your microbiome (your gut health) and often a backed up liver. You may notice that you have more breakouts at certain times in your cycle because your skin is reacting to the fluctuations in hormones (but it doesn’t mean your hormones are out of balance). ✨ . The main exception I see is when someone has PCOS (high androgens). In this case, to improve the skin we need to focus on healing your PCOS at the root . . To support your gut health I recommend #1 remove dairy from your diet and consider going on an elimination diet or a gut healing protocol with a practitioner. Dealing with skin issues suck and it can be a frustrating journey but the closer you can get to determining the cause you can heal faster. I find that so many women end up focusing on their hormones when the gut is what needs to be addressed first. ❤️ . We will be talking about gut health and skincare on tomorrow (Saturday) in my class ‘Getting The Glow’ class at The Light Cellar on Saturday. It's at 1-3 pm. $35. Register with the link in my bio. . . I’ll also be making up a turmeric lemonade, schizandra elixir and show you how to make special skin glow facemask. 📸 @baeluxury
