I think one of the biggest takeaways to understand here is that HORMONES ARE JUST THE MESSENGERS!
When treating hormonal imbalances or imbalances in general we ned to look at where it’s coming from.
The 𝗴𝘂𝘁 and 𝗹𝗶𝘃𝗲𝗿 are two fundamental organs when it comes to balance in the body. Hormone balance is one function that is especially dependent on a healthy liver and gut.
When the gut and the liver are at their best, they make sure that the good stuff is absorbed by your body and the bad stuff is removed.
If not, then these toxins and excess hormones get reabsorbed back into your system and we are left feeling fatigued, imbalanced, low sex drive, feeling down, bloated, tired thyroid, weight gain, metabolic and hormonal issues like PCOS etc.
When you eat, the stomach and small intestines help the nutrients coming in to be absorbed by your bloodstream, which then transports them to the areas of the body where they are used to create the essential components of life – hormones, enzymes, and the energy you need to thrive throughout the day.
On the other side of the equation there are the things your liver needs to get rid of, like the toxins you ingest from food, the environment, what you put on your skin, your household cooking and cleaning items or the hormones that have been broken down and are no longer needed.
So when it comes to hormonal balance, the first thing I do is trace where it’s coming from, the liver, thyroid, gut, all? Once you know the root cause you can starting repairing the core.
