Navigating Hormonal Harmony: A Guide for Teens to Forties

Every day I meet women from young teens to women in their 20’s, 30’s and 40's who are looking for help to support hormonal activity so that they can live their life to the fullest, free from menstrual discomfort including pain, skin problems and mood changes. Many of them say that they don’t feel like themselves at this time of the month and they sometimes wonder which one is the real them. I remember that feeling well, but my mood was more likely to be low rather than irritable and cranky which I know many of you experience. All of us would prefer to feel like ourselves for the whole month. It is good to start balancing hormones in our teenage years this will help to smooth the transition into perimenopause and menopause later on, though that might sound like a long way off now.

Sometimes it can be small things that will help ease your symptoms. For example, sleep is crucial for all aspects of your health, if you are not sleeping take a look at what you can do to improve this. Good quality sleep will help your body recover during the night, helping you to wake up refreshed and energised. Your mood will be improved too with a good night's sleep.

Exercise is great for the lymphatic system, a brisk walk for example, jumping on the spot, or skipping are good examples of exercise to improve lymphatic flow. A healthy lymphatic system will assist in the removal of toxins from the body and in turn support your immune system and support skin health.

Dietary tips for hormonal support

Your diet has a role to play in hormone health. The big things to avoid are excess sugars and processed carbs, you will find these in bars, snacks, bread rolls, cakes, biscuits, and baked goods. Reduce caffeinated and fizzy drinks, they can be drying on your skin. Change common table salt to sea salt and aim to reduce. If you notice bloating or digestive discomfort after eating any food at all leave it out of your diet for a couple of weeks. You can re-introduce later to see if you still having a reaction to it.

Eat a wide variety of fruit, veg, especially green leafy vegetables as they are an ideal source of magnesium. Your wholegrains, nuts, and seeds will provide some omega oils, fibre, magnesium, and protein. Include pulses and lentils for extra protein. Oily fish and seeds for those essential fatty acids. And eggs, a small amount of meat and poultry for extra protein.

Drink plenty of water, it is one of the most important things you can do for your health. Add some lemon in water in the morning, it is great for the skin. A cup of Pukka Peace tea is a great one to have in the evening or anytime of the day to help you feel relaxed and calm.
