Do you have symptoms of PMS or hormonal imbalance mid-cycle (ovulation) and/or the week before your period? An unbalanced ratio of lower progesterone in relation to estrogen can cause PMS issues such as insomnia, bloating, moodiness, constipation, weight gain around the hips, thighs, and MUCH more!
IF ANY OF THESE DESCRIBE YOU:
-Mood swings & depression around cycle time
-Variations or skipped cycles
-Vaginal dryness or itchiness
-Excessive or scanty blood flow during periods
-Cyclic insomnia, night sweats & fatigue
WHY DOES THIS HORMONAL IMBALANCE OCCUR?
It’s all about two major weaknesses: the liver and a nutrient deficit. The liver is responsible for three main jobs that affect hormonal balance:
1) Balancing blood sugar– an unhealthy liver can’t do its job of helping to manage blood sugar and storing glycogen (sugar), so your adrenal glands kick in and activate your stress response when blood sugar falls too low. The stress steals from your body’s ability to make progesterone to support hormonal balance.
