Natural Treatments for Hormonal Imbalance
Natalie Ham, N.D.

Simple Tips for Reducing Symptoms from Hormonal Imbalance:

Hot Flashes and Night Sweats:
·    Include phytoestrogens in your diet, including legumes (soybeans, chickpeas) and lignans (flax seeds).
·    Exercise regularly.
·    Try herbal supplements like black cohosh and red clover, which have been found in numerous studies to decrease symptoms of menopause, especially hot flashes.
·    Bioflavinoids, Vitamin B6, Vitamin E and Evening Primrose Oil are also helpful in reducing symptoms.

Weight Gain:
·    Diet and exercise are very important components to treating hormone-related weight gain.
·    Eating a balanced diet that focuses on whole foods: vegetables, whole grains, nuts, seeds, fish and fruit can be helpful.
·    Avoid pro-inflammatory processed foods and refined sugars.
·    A good diet and exercise regimen will also help prevent other health problems like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease and obesity. Even a small amount of weight loss (8-10 lbs) can help with hormonal regulation.

PMS and Mood Swings:
·    Vegetables in the cruciferous family including brussel sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli, and cabbage contain a phytonutrient that helps stabilize estrogen metabolism in the body.
·    Decrease the intake of processed foods, refined sugars and alcohol to decrease overall inflammation on the body and burden on the liver, which is used to process hormones.
·    Drink plenty of water and decrease salt intake to prevent swelling, bloating and digestive issues.
·    Exercise and practice meditation and relaxation to help naturally increase endorphin levels, which elevate mood.
·    Try herbal supplements like Vitex agnus castus, Avena, Passiflora, St. John's Wort and Kava Kava for hormone and mood stability.
·    B-vitamins are used to help stabilize moods and support the liver, and Vitamin B6 is especially helpful in mood changes like depression.
·    Calcium and Vitamin D help decrease the severity of PMS symptoms.

Consider Homeopathy
Homeopathy, when prescribed by a skilled homeopathic physician, provides safe and effective treatment for hormonal imbalance.

Benefits of homeopathic treatment for hormonal imbalance:

·    Homeopathy can work rapidly, sometimes providing relief from painful cycles from minutes to hours.

·    Homeopathic remedies can help stabilize moods, help with fatigue, headaches, bloating, digestion, aches and pains, hot flashes and night sweats.

·    Homeopathic medicines are gentle and cause no side effects.  They also will not interact with any medications or hormones you are on.  Homeopathic medicines are safe to use during pregnancy.  

·    Homeopathy works on a very deep level, and does not just mask your symptoms, but helps rebalance your system and hormones for good.

·    Because homeopathy is holistic in nature, if you are suffering from other chronic problems, such as allergies, migraines, anxiety, depression or fatigue, these issues can also be helped with homeopathic treatment.
