Hormone

Balance

Have you ever wondered why you’re bursting with energy one day and exhausted the next day without much change in your day-to-day routine?   

Hormones affect everything and have a powerful impact on how we feel, function and look. They function as messengers and control some of the most important processes in your body such as your mood, energy, weight, monthly cycle and fertility.

 

It’s natural for hormones to fluctuate. In fact, your body is always changing; your hormones shift daily, weekly, and monthly throughout the stages of your menstrual cycle. However, when hormones become imbalanced they can send too many or too few messages to your body, triggering a broad range of symptoms. Some conditions related to hormonal imbalances in women include endometriosis, polycystic ovary syndrome, hypothalamic amenorrhea and thyroid conditions.

If you are living with one of these conditions, you may be experiencing a range of unwanted symptoms, such as changes to your weight, skin, energy levels, digestion, mood and menstrual cycle. You may also be finding it difficult to become pregnant. The good news is that your hormonal condition can be managed and supported through customised nutrition and lifestyle therapy. I will work with you to find your own unique nutrition and lifestyle therapy plan to balance your hormones and help manage your symptoms. I can also optimise your diet for fertility and improve your chances of having a healthy pregnancy.

Endometriosis

If you have endometriosis, it’s important to consider your diet and lifestyle when tackling the condition. Research has shown that by making changes to your diet and lifestyle you can help reduce symptoms and improve your chances of conceiving.

 

Your personalised nutrition & lifestyle therapy plan can:

 

  • Assist with your hormone regulation

  • Reduce your inflammation and oxidative stress

  • Improve your egg health

  • Reduce your pain associated with your menstrual cycle

  • Reduce your gastrointestinal symptoms, such as IBS (a low FODMAP diet can be applied)

  • Correct your micronutrient deficiencies

  • Improve your immunity

  • Increase your energy levels and mood

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome

If you have PCOS, optimising your diet and lifestyle is critical for managing symptoms of PCOS, particularly improving insulin resistance, balancing your hormones, restoring ovulation and increasing your fertility.

Your personalised nutrition & lifestyle therapy plan can:

  • Improve your insulin resistance

  • Reduce your cravings and normalise eating behaviours

  • Assist with your hormone regulation

  • Improve skin concerns such as acne and hirsutism (excess hair growth)

  • Improve your menstrual regularity, ovulation and increase your chances of conceiving

  • Increase your energy levels and mood

  • Reduce your risks associated with chronic diseases later in life, such as diabetes and heart disease

Hypothalamic Amenorrhea

We benefit from the hormones naturally produced as a result of ovulation, so if this is switched off as a result off hypothalamic amenorrhea, it not only decreases your chances of conceiving, but it increases your risk of developing poor bone health and heart disease. The good news is that many women are able to restore the regularity of their menstrual cycle, improve their chances of conceiving and protect their bone and heart health by making changes to their diet and lifestyle.

Your personalised nutrition & lifestyle therapy plan can:

 

  • Optimise your energy and macronutrient intake

  • Correct your micronutrient deficiencies

  • Assist with your hormone regulation, menstrual regularity, ovulation and fertility

  • Protect your bone health

  • Protect your heart health

  • Normalise your eating behaviour and reduce stress levels

Thyroid Conditions

Thyroid hormones interact with reproductive hormones to preserve normal ovarian function. If the thyroid gland releases too many (hyperthyroidism) or not enough (hypothyroidism) thyroid hormones, an imbalance of reproductive hormones can occur and affect fertility.

Your personalised nutrition & lifestyle therapy plan can:

  • Correct your micronutrient deficiencies

  • Assist with your hormone regulation

  • Optimise your thyroid function

  • Improve your menstrual regularity, ovulation and increase your chances of conceiving

  • Protect your bone health
