8 HORMONE FRIENDLY BREAKFAST IDEAS

I have seen breakfast recommendations far too often online and they’re all unbalance in a way or another: either too many carbs, not enough fat, not enough protein or too much sugar! Bowls of endless fruit, huge portions of oatmeal (mostly prepared incorrectly and not soaked for at least 7 hours prior serving), exotic ingredients…

DON’T MISTAKE TREATMENT FOR CURE

Yesterday’s post made me see something: hair loss to men is as sensitive of a topic as infertility is to a woman. And I get it! There is so much of ‘’why me?!’’ and frustration,…both are similar in very many ways and I am not trying to make one feel more or less important. Thing…

NUTRIENT AND HORMONE CYCLE SYNC: LUTEAL PHASE

If a sperm has fertilised the egg that was released during ovulation, that is called ‘’conception’’. The fertilised egg will travel through the fallopian tube to the uterus where it will be implanted in the uterine lining.  Progesterone and oestrogen levels will peak on this phase! They will help the uterine lining to prepare for implantation….

NUTRIENT AND HORMONE CYCLE SYNC: OVULATION

Some of you might be past ovulation right now or perhaps ovulating. I have waited with this post to see the full moon phase (which usually is observed at the same time with most ovulations). Ovulation marks the time when the mature egg is released from the ovary (remember it takes 3-4 months to mature…

NUTRIENT AND HORMONE CYCLE SYNC: FOLLICULAR PHASE

Your hormone levels are starting to raise up now. The pituitary gland then releases follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) aiding your body to grow around 30 follicles (tiny sacs of fluid in the ovaries walls) out of which only 1 of them will keep growing. While our body starts producing oestrogen, your uterine lining will start…

HORMONAL CHANGES DURING MENSTRUATION

During this phase, your hormones are at their lowest (progesterone, LH, FSH and estradiol). What is actually happening to your body is that there is shedding of the uterine lining that was built up along the cycle up to now. This is bleeding. Interestingly, now is when women posses the greatest connection/communication between the two…
