Hormones, Hot Flashes, and Fatigue: Finding Natural Balance for 60 and Beyond

June 16, 20232 min read

If you're a woman in your 60s or beyond, experiencing symptoms like hair loss, irritability, hot flashes, fatigue, and a lack of zest for life, you're not alone. These discomforts often stem from hormonal imbalances. In this video, we'll explore three simple ways to naturally balance your hormones and regain vitality.

  1. Nourish Your Body with Estrogen-Boosting Foods: To increase your estrogen levels and support overall health, it's crucial to incorporate the right nutrients into your diet. Here are two easy-to-find options:

a) Flax Seeds: These tiny powerhouses are packed with phytoestrogens, making them an excellent choice. For better digestion, consider grinding whole flax seeds or purchasing ground flax seeds. Apart from boosting estrogen, they offer fiber, omega-3 fatty acids (with anti-inflammatory properties), and can help lower cholesterol levels. Sprinkle ground flax seeds on yogurt, fruit, salads, or blend them into a healthy smoothie.

b) Sesame Seeds: Another fantastic source of estrogen, sesame seeds contain lignans that help balance hormone levels. Incorporate them into your meals by making tahini, a paste that can be used as a dipping sauce for vegetables or sprinkled as a salad topper.

  1. Embrace Exercise for Hormone Health: You may not want to hear it, but exercise is a powerful tool for reducing stress and improving insulin sensitivity, both vital for hormone regulation. Aim for a well-rounded routine consisting of cardiovascular exercises, strength training, and stretching. Remember, movement is a gift we've been given, so let's make the most of it!

  2. Prioritize Stress Management: Chronic stress disrupts hormonal balance, so it's crucial to prioritize stress management techniques. Consider incorporating the following practices into your daily routine:

a) Prayer and Meditation: Take time for inner reflection and spiritual connection to alleviate stress. b) Deep Breathing Exercises: Focus on slow, deep breaths to calm your mind and body. c) Seek Support: Engage the help of a coach or counselor to navigate stress more effectively. d) Reconnect with Your Passions: Engage in hobbies and activities that bring you joy and feed your soul.

Women of 60 and Beyond

Summary: Finding natural balance for your hormones is within reach. By incorporating estrogen-boosting foods like flax and sesame seeds, embracing regular exercise, and prioritizing stress management, you can regain control of your well-being. Remember, small steps can lead to significant improvements in your overall hormone health and quality of life.
