Did you know that the following factors can all affect our natural hormone balance?

  • Environment

 How can nutritional therapy help?

Your hormones can be directly affected by the foods you eat as well as how well your body is coping under stress. I work with your diet to help you rebalance your hormones naturally. When we are stressed or are eating an unbalanced diet, this in turn can increase our cortisol (stress hormone) levels or our insulin levels (a hormone involved in blood sugar balance). Both of these can have a knock on effect on our oestrogen, progesterone and testosterone balance. I am here to help you identify which of these areas is most likely to be affecting your hormone balance.

I may recommend DUTCH testing  to help see exactly how your hormones are performing as well as a DNA Oestrogen genetic testing panel to help me understand your body better. In particular which types of oestrogen are more dominant as well as how well you excrete hormones from your body. Genetic predisposition can affect our vital detoxification pathways. DNA Oestrogen is a test which can help us to understand your oestrogen genetics in more detail.
