Tips for balancing hormones...
Hormones govern our body and they need fat to function properly. Without the right balance of good fats the body will malfunction in the area of fat-metabolism and the regulations of all body functions.
If the body is low in DHA, found in omega 3 (fish, algae, walnut, chia, flax, etc), it can go into early menopause and have memory loss, mood swings, and even is connected to Alzheimers
Today the average America eats 50:1 ratio of Omega 6 to Omega 3 but the ration should be 1:1. Omega 3’s have to come from the diet which is why it is essential. Avoid the corn, canola, safflower, sunflower, etc.
Focus on 20-30% good fats daily
Simply by eating organic it can reverse PMS, allergies and hormone imbalance
Good fats do the following:
Balance the hormones
Reduces inflammation and arthritis
Good for abdominal
Good for Heart health
Reduce water retention
