Any of these symptoms sound familiar? 😫😓

These are all signs of a hormonal imbalance. ⚖️

All of these symptoms are happening in your body for a reason. The most common reasons for hormone imbalances are poor gut health, chronic stress, inflammation, and blood sugar imbalances.

Here are a few ways to get started on balancing your hormones & eliminating the symptoms above:

✨ Focus on blood sugar balance. This means eating meals every 3-4 hours that include a protein, carb, and fat. Do not go too long without eating as this will cause low blood sugar and can stress the body out, contributing to further imbalances. 🍽🥩🍠🥑

✨ Manage stress! When stress is high, the hormone cortisol is released. Cortisol can be a huge driving factor behind hormonal imbalances. 🧘‍♀️

✨ Heal your gut 🩹 Gut health is directly connected to hormone health. If your gut health is off, your hormone health will be too. 🦠

I teach you everything you need to know about balancing your hormones in my 1:1 coaching program. Click the link in my bio to apply! 💫

Do you struggle with food sensitivities, bloating, nausea, skin issues, fatigue, or joint pain?

If so, you might have leaky gut. ⬇️

Leaky gut is actually very common these days. It can occur due to prolonged periods of stress, NSAID (like Advil) use, antibiotic use, excess amounts of processed foods, and/or gut imbalances. 💊😣🦠

If you think you may have leaky gut, don’t worry, there are plenty of ways to help heal the gut! 🩹I always recommend getting a functional gut test done in order to see if you have any gut imbalances (i.e. dysbiosis, candida, h.pylori) that could use support.

BUT even without a gut test, there are still some other things you can do to support the leaky gut:

✨Make sure you are eating in a relaxed state. Fully chew your food, and take some deep breaths before meals.

✨Manage stress levels! Chronic stress leads to elevated cortisol, which can lead to intestinal permeability.

✨Utilize gut-healing foods like collagen, gelatin, and bone broth. You can also implement some supplements that are specifically helpful for healing leaky gut, such as L-Glutamine, licorice, marshmallow root, and chamomile.

Do you struggle with symptoms of leaky gut? What could you use support with? Tell me in the comments!

Unfortunately gas, bloating, irregular bowel movements, heartburn, and food sensitivities are incredibly common these days.

But that does NOT mean that they are normal, or that you have to live with them. ❌

Every symptom has a story. You don’t just randomly start getting digestive issues for no reason.

The most common reasons for gut issues are ⬇️

• Overgrowths in the microbiome (this includes dysbiosis, candida, h.pylori, and parasites) 👉🏼 these can throw things alllll out of whack, as they are not meant to overgrow in your digestive tract. The best way to know if you have these going on would be to work with a functional medicine practitioner and complete a stool test. 🦠

•Poor digestive function 👉🏼 some people struggle to digest dietary fat, are lacking in essential digestive enzymes, or have conditions which impact the ability to absorb nutrients (i.e. Crohn’s, Celiac).

•Food sensitivities & Leaky Gut 👉🏼 food sensitivities are often a result of overall impaired gut health, and happen BECAUSE of leaky gut. Leaky gut occurs when the tight junctions in your small intestine that are meant to keep food IN your gut, get impaired and then food can flow in & out of the small intestine and your body views that food as an invader (thus giving you a symptom when you eat it).

•Excessive antibiotic & NSAID use 👉🏼 antibiotics disrupt the microbiome and can kill of our beneficial bacteria, thus making it a lot easier for “bad” overgrowths to occur. NSAIDs contribute to leaky gut. 💊

•Chronic stress 👉🏼 if your body is constantly under stress, this can also lead to leaky gut, impaired digestive function, and lowered immune response which makes it easier for unwanted overgrowths to occur. 🥵

Do you struggle with any of these signs of poor gut health? What questions do you have about the causes of your symptoms? Tell me in the comments, I would love to help! 👇🏼

Some simple swaps you can make today that make a WORLD of difference for your gut & hormone health! 🌎❤️‍🩹

Your gut & hormones are largely affected not only by the foods that you eat, but also by how you treat and speak to your body. It takes a holistic approach to eliminate symptoms of digestive issues and hormonal imbalances.

Yes, it’s important to eat the whole foods and drink the filtered water. But it’s also important to make sure you are sleeping enough, moving your body in a way that feels good (bonus points for outdoors in the sunshine!), and spending time enjoying yourself with loved ones. Nourish your soul as much as you nourish your body. 😴🧘‍♀️💦🚶🏼‍♀️☀️

If this feels overwhelming, you do NOT need to suddenly make all of these swaps at once! Even just starting with one at a time can make a huge positive difference.

Which one of these healthy swaps will you try today? ✨

If you want to get rid of PMS, hormonal acne, mood swings, and bloating…listen up! 📢

What you put ON your body is just as important as the foods that go IN to your body. ❗️

Our skin is our largest organ and it absorbs every type of personal care product that we come in contact with. Trust me, this detail MATTERS…especially if you have hormonal imbalances.

These days, many personal care & cleaning products are filled with things like xenoestrogens, phthalates, parabens, BPA, and other chemicals that can put additional stress onto the body, mimic types of hormones, and contribute to hormonal imbalances. 👎🏻

This graphic shows some of my favorite non-toxic products that are free of harmful chemicals. You can also download the “Think Dirty” free app on your phone and scan the barcodes of products to see if they are considered non-toxic (AKA hormone-friendly) or toxic (AKA avoid when possible).

I have had countless clients swap their toxic products for non-toxic brands (without making ANY other changes) and report a decrease in menstrual cramps as well as clearer skin! 😱🤩

I know switching everything over to non-toxic products may feel overwhelming at first, so keep in mind that you do NOT need to do this all overnight. Pick one thing at a time, and as you run out of your old products replace them with new non-toxic products. 😌

What’s your favorite non-toxic product brand? Which of these swaps will you make first? Tell me in the comments! ✨

Easy tips that you can implement today to improve your gut health 🤩👇🏼

✨Chew your food thoroughly, eat in a relaxed state, + take 5 BIG deep breaths before each meal: all of these tips will help to get your body in a parasympathetic state, which is the “rest and digest” state. Our body CANNOT properly digest food if we are not in this relaxed state. Eating while rushed, stressed, or preoccupied can lead to bloating, nausea, and stomach aches.

✨Minimize processed foods & alcohol: these can contribute to leaky gut, which can in turn lead to food sensitivities and an increased likelihood of pathogens and overgrowths in the microbiome.

✨Strengthen the gut mucosal lining: stronger gut lining = less leaky gut, which is a GOOD thing. My favorite way to do this is by adding collagen & gelatin into your diet! You can mix collagen into smoothies, juice, soups, and baked goods. You can make gut-healing gummies with gelatin (recipe on my feed).

✨Strengthen gut microbiome: we need enough beneficial gut bacteria in order to fight off the “bad” guys (overgrowths and pathogens). Probiotics can be helpful in this situation. Keep in mind though, not everyone needs probiotics; if you take one and it makes you feel worse, this is likely not the best fit for you.

Which of these will you try today? Tell me in the comments!

Are you a coffee lover, but dealing with hormone imbalances or fatigue? ☕️😴

Keep reading, this recipe is for you! 👇🏼

Drinking coffee on its own (ESPECIALLY on an empty stomach) can lead to a variety of unwanted symptoms such as blood sugar dysregulation, anxiety, and energy crashes. This is due to the caffeine spike that causes cortisol to be released. 😬

Luckily, there is a way to mitigate these side effects by balancing out your coffee with some dietary fat + protein! This will help keep blood sugar and cortisol levels stable. ⚖️

To make this balanced, hormone-friendly coffee you will need:
•8 oz organic coffee
•1/2 TBSP coconut oil OR grass-fed butter/ghee (can also use 1-2 TBSP of organic raw cream instead if you tolerate it)
•1 scoop collagen peptides

*blend until frothy and enjoy!

The collagen is also helpful for healing the gut lining, so that makes it a gut-friendly coffee as well as a bonus!

Save this recipe and try it out! ✨
