How to Balance Your Sex Hormones like a GoddessJul 12, 2023
Goddess, that juicy grounded nourishing feeling where you have a high libido, energy, magic overflowing from your veins. That’s the vibe of having your sex hormones balanced.
Not that frazzled, stressed, burnout, fatigued, uninspired vibe. It can take months, sometimes years to reverse the effects of adrenal fatigue.
When you live in a state of chronic stress, pushing, forcing, overworking, constant travel, hustle…cortisol and adrenaline are pumping through your veins. Every time they hit, your sex hormones like estrogen and progesterone turn off. Rest and digest turns off. Your metabolism gets hit.
Fasting, only fruit and juicing, too much emotional work, worry, stress… all drains your precious female body.
Developing a daily practice of ayurvedic rituals like eating for your dosha, nourishing your body with healthy foods, dry brushing, self-massage, yoga, gentle meditation and focusing on safety will bring your body back to its nourished grounded state.
Living in tune with the cyclical nature of your menstrual cycle- knowing the days and tracking when your estrogen rises from day 1-14, then drops. Then slightly increases again in the luteal phase.
Being more gentle with yourself when estrogen decreases, doing the emotional work and relaxing. Literally, the hormone relaxin increases during the luteal phase, asking us to slow down.
If you’re experiencing PMS symptoms like mood swings, skin crawling frustration, anger, outbursts or Menstrual cramps/back pain…the universe wants you to slow down and get to the root cause, clear the trapped emotions, listen to the wisdom of your body.
You can eat foods that heal the imbalances, take fertility supplements, create safety and stability for the feminine to bloom fully.
