If I had a dollar for every woman that has told me these silly stories I would be one rich bitch.
“I was told to eliminate dairy and sugar for my PCOS because they are inflammatory”
“I was told to go low carb because I have insulin resistance”
“I was told to seed cycle to balance my hormones”
“I was told to take – insert supplement- to help with estrogen dominance, PMS and progesterone production”
“I was told I need to start eating more cruciferous vegetables to help with detox”
“I was told to eliminate animal foods and saturated fat because they are loaded with hormones and mucus”
“I was told to take fish oil because it will help with my acne and is anti-inflammatory”
What should you be asking?
“OKAY, BUT WHY?”
Or 9x out of 10 they will throw some bogus study at you to validate their claims that was done on rats, mice, men, or a very tiny group of participants and think it’s now the holy grail of advice without doing their own research and having client experience (the most important learning of all).
If someone gives you these blanket statements without being able to explain why or they fail to recognize the basic physiology and biology of women then RUN.
If they fail to mention:
The impact of cruciferous vegetables on your thyroid.
The long term consequences of eliminating carbs/ sugar and what happens to your body when you do. Hello stress hormones!
How nuts/seeds and fish oils are PUFAs, estrogenic and how they can contribute to toxin load and go rancid in the body.
The nutrients you miss out on by eliminate animal proteins and saturated fats.
How taking a hormone balancing supplement or birth control is not getting the root of your hormone balance.
Before you go following these recommendations and going down rabbit holes…
It’s all about the foundations baby!
+ Blood sugar
+ Liver, bile and detox
It can be that simple.
Our body is a beautiful machine where everything is connected and intertwines.
Never look at hormones and symptoms in isolation or you will likely end up in a hole.
