Hormone Balance Tips for Women
Natural hormone balance, especially with estrogen and progesterone, is an extremely important health issue for women. When these two hormones are out of balance (too low), chaos can ensue in the mind, emotions, and everyday activities. When taking a gentle, holistic approach to hormonal health, it can limit negative side effects and address the actual causes of the imbalance rather than just masking the symptoms of hormonal imbalance.
When it comes to balancing hormones, we take both a lifestyle approach and a diet approach that includes ancient superfoods.

Low Estrogen and Progesterone Symptoms
- Loss of libido
- Mood swings
- Memory problems and foggy thinking
- Irregular periods
- Hot flashes
Low estrogen and progesterone symptoms are similar, and women of any age can suffer from these symptoms. Keeping these hormones at a healthy level is vital for feeling “right” day and night, and low level estrogen and progesterone is one of the main causes for that feeling that you’re getting older.
5 Lifestyle Factors that Put You At Risk for Hormone Imbalance
- Being overweight
- Lack of exercise
- Poor diet
- Overexposure to toxins (like smoking and chemicals that create xenoestrogens)
While causes of hormone imbalance can come from multiple factors, including those we can’t change, like aging, these are the top 5 culprits you can control in your life. Especially for women over 35, addressing these areas of your life, to help swing your hormones back to normal.
Exposure to toxins accumulates in the body over time and are known to create toxic hormones that disrupt your body’s natural systems. Protect your skin by using only organic, non-toxic, products, like Elavonne’s organic skin care line.
Balance Your Estrogen and Progesterone with Diet
The anti aging diet is one that also addresses hormonal health. Estrogen and progesterone levels are sensitive to diet, and can be improved by:
- Adding healthy fats (coconut and avocado)
- Omega-3, primrose oil (GLA, an omega-6 fat)
- Reducing caffeine or replacing coffee with green tea
- Limit alcohol consumption to 3 drinks or less per day.
- Including healthy amounts of lean protein, especially collagen Include a natural hormone supplement
By making these adjustments, you can ensure that you’re not stressing your immune or adrenal system unnecessarily and interfering with your body’s natural processes of hormone production.
Eating healthy fats and omega-3 will help keep neuronal processes in tip top shape†, and give your body what it needs to create these hormones on their own†. And, while we don’t generally recommend omega-6 fats, primrose oil is an exception as it contains a type of essential fat (GLA) that helps balance progesterone.
Including healthy amounts of lean protein in your diet, especially collagen protein, will help support a healthy gut. We usually discuss the benefits collagen has for beauty, but there are so many other plusses for this amazing protein. By supporting connective tissues† and a healthy metabolism†, your body will discover increased energy and a more balanced hormone system†.
Supplement with Natural Nutrients
Women’s Hormonal Balance is made with 8 highly studied ancient herbs and superfoods that help maintain excellent hormonal health in women. These nutrients don’t push your hormones in one direction or another like bioidentical hormones. If you take bioidentical hormones, you need to have your levels checked regularly by a doctor or you bare the risk of your body shutting down producing these hormones altogether.
Rather, these ancient superfoods simply support your body’s natural production of hormones to bring your body back into balance hormonally. There’s no risk of boosting your hormones too far in one direction or another with these ingredients or becoming dependent on them.
Turmeric mimics the activity of estrogen, among many other health benefits, including, normalizing inflammation.
An amino-acid found mostly in whole grains and beets, helps with many processes, but mainly with its detoxifying properties and being able to remove the “bad estrogen” (xenoestrogen) from the body.
Chaste Tree (Berry)
Chaste tree berry has the ability to normalize the balance of progesterone in the body by regulating and supporting the pituitary gland.
Passion Flower (Passiflora incarnata)
Passion flower is a great for increasing GABA (amma-aminobutyric acid) levels in the brain and combatting signs of menopause, such as insomnia, mood swings, hot flashes, and headaches. It naturally impedes progesterone from turning into bad estrogen in the body which is toxic. Additionally, this herb allows women to hold onto androgen sex hormones which, in women, are necessary for health and libido.
Rosemary addresses fatigue and mood swings related to hormone imbalance, as well as helps support healthy ovaries.
Wild Yam stimulates progesterone production and DHEA production, which is known as a precursor to all hormones.
Red clover assists in protecting the body against cellular aging. Specifically with hot flashes and insomnia (trouble sleeping), red clover has been well-studied to help with these typical menopausal symptoms without side effects.
Kudzu contains estrogen-like compounds and is well known for improving attention span and cognitive function in postmenopausal women. Vaginal dryness has also been reported from kudzu supplementation.
