Food Is the Basis for Recovery
Food is the basis for recovering hormonal balance and a decrease in symptoms. Food can be very powerful — and may help the situation or hinder improvement.
As you may guess, a chapter in the book called “Good Period Foods” include good fats, organ meats, eggs, raw milk and other real foods. The chapter in the book called “Bad Period Foods” include vegetable oils, soy, certain raw goitrogenic vegetables, processed foods in general among other foods.
There are many other foods that are explained for their good or bad influence on hormonal balance.
Estrogen dominance is the underlying issue when female hormones are out of balance. This causes symptoms such as cramping, bloating, acne, weight gain and mood swings. It can also apply to women in menopause as there are many things that can cause progesterone to diminish as you age, leaving estrogen dominant and out of balance.
Quit PMS explains all that in easy to understand language.
