When it comes to health and hormones, the gut can have a much bigger effect than many people realize.  Fixing hormones and gut function can do a lot to boost health, even if all other factors are not optimal.


Your diet is critical to ensure proper hormone production.

Avoid high Omega -6 Polyunsaturated Fats.

Don’t eat fats like Vegetable oil, peanut oil, canola oil, soybean oil, margarine, shortening, or other chemically altered fats. Choose fats like coconut oil, real butter, olive oil (don’t heat!) and animal fats (tallow, lard) from healthy sources instead and eat lots of high Omega-3 fish.

Avoid processed foods, white flours and refined sugars.  These are nutritionally deficient and places more stress on the body.
