Foods that support healthy hormones

Hormones can be affected by a variety of things from stress, lifestyle, our aging process, to dietary causes. When our hormones are out of balance, it can create adverse effects like fatigue, brain fog, PMS, infertility, weight gain, blood sugar issues and many more. As the saying goes “food is medicine” - therefore eating the right diet that supports healthy hormones and eliminating hormone disrupting foods is key to optimizing our health.

Foods that support healthy hormones:

  • Eating sufficient organic protein

  • Healthy fats - coconut oil, ghee, extra virgin olive oil

  • Green tea

  • Fatty fish

  • Eggs

  • Flaxseed

  • Cruciferous vegetables - brussel sprouts, cauliflower, broccoli

  • Organic non GMO whole soy foods - tempeh, tofu, nato

  • Probiotics - kefir, yogurt

  • Dark leafy greens

Foods to avoid:

  • Sugar

  • Refined carbohydrates

  • Caffeine

  • Alcohol

  • Diary

  • Gluten

If you suspect you have imbalanced hormones, come schedule an appointment with one of our functional medicine acupuncturists at Meta Health to create a personalized treatment plan using acupuncture, supplements, lifestyle and dietary coaching to help support healthy hormones.
