Hormones — including oestrogen, testosterone, adrenaline and insulin — are vital chemical messengers that affect many aspects of your overall health. They’re secreted by various glands and organs, including your thyroid, adrenals, pituitary, ovaries, and pancreas. Your entire endocrine system works together to control the level of hormones circulating throughout your body, and if even just one is slightly imbalanced, it can lead to major health problems.

Many factors including stress, poor gut health, vitamin D deficiency and lack of sleep, can cause hormone levels to go a little crazy. Even food can play heavily on how our hormones behave – for better or worse – according to Dr. Josh Axe, a certified doctor of natural medicine and clinical nutritionist.

How diet affects hormones

The food we consume provides the energy and nutrients that allow the body to produce hormones and energy. If your diet doesn’t supply enough fuel to help make all of the hormones you need, it will automatically prioritise the production of stress hormones first over others, such as reproductive hormones or those associated with metabolic functions. And why is that? Well, stress hormones are essential for our survival. So, when you’re not properly sustaining your body in a healthy way, stress levels rise, and this then has an impact on our overall health and well-being.

Stress can also come from emotional or physical sources, which can stem from anything such as not eating a sufficient amount of calories, not getting a decent sleep every night or even having an illness. So, whilst it’s hard to control all the hormones your body naturally produces, you can fuel your body with a high quality nutrient-dense diet that will help it to effectively reach a stable equilibrium when it comes to hormones.

Signs and symptoms of hormone disruption  

Are your hormones off kilter? Here are a few key signs and symptoms you can look out for:

  • changes in mood including symptoms of depression and anxiety
  • severe fatigue
  • hair loss or thinning
  • low libido
  • sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
  • disturbed sleep or insomnia
  • unexplained changes in appetite
  • irregular periods and/or infertility
  • signs of fluctuating blood sugar levels, including nervousness and weakness.

Lifestyle changes to support hormone health

Before we delve into the foods that will help improve your hormone health, there are some crucial lifestyle changes you can make, too. Since stress and your surrounding environment can play huge roles when it comes to your hormones, it makes sense that you would work to eliminate these as best as possible. Chronic stress can have the same detrimental effects on the body that poor diet and lack of sleep can have, so taking the time to relax and to reduce any tension will help to drastically improve your overall well-being and balance your hormones.

Other ways you can manage stress in a natural way are by: exercising regularly, practicing yoga or meditation, spending more time outdoors in nature, being more social and practicing aromatherapy with essential oils. Getting enough sleep is essential, as is taking care of your liver, which impacts hormone balance. You can maintain a healthy liver by consuming less alcohol, quit smoking, limit the use of over-the-counter drugs and by adopting a diet that is high in plant foods.

Foods for hormone health 

Each person is different, so it’s worth noting that when transitioning to a healthier diet, individuals will see and feel results at a different pace. Depending on how drastically you’re changing your diet, you may suffer some side effects. These can range from a change in digestion, such as bloating and gas, to brain fog and moodiness. You can expect this to last for several weeks, and will dissipate once your digestive system gets used to the new foods that you’re providing your body with. After two to three weeks, you’ll notice huge improvements when it comes to your energy and focus. You may even find your taste buds have changed and you’re enjoying new flavours. Other changes you may notice is your sleep quality, mood and even weight.

Be sure you’re eating high quality, non-GMO foods, and try to stick to these guidelines:

1. Vegetables (3 or more servings, cooked or raw, throughout the day)

Leafy greens like kale, chard or spinach, artichokes, arugula, asparagus, avocados, beets or beet greens, bell peppers, bok choy, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, carrots, celery, green beans, eggplant, squash, pumpkin, mushrooms, onions, radish and tomatoes.

2. Fruit (2 or more servings per day)

Berries like strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries, mango, apples, pears, bananas, melons such as cantaloupe, honeydew and watermelon, cherries, coconut, oranges, grapefruit, grapes, lemons, limes, peaches, nectarines, papaya, pineapple, plums, pomegranates and rhubarb.

3. Healthy fats (3 or more servings, at least one with each main meal)

Coconut oil or milk, olive oil, olives, avocados, sesame oil, walnut oil, macadamia oil, grape seed oil.

4. Complex carbs (in moderation, about 2 to 3 times per day)

Whole or ancient grains including brown or wild rice, quinoa, buckwheat, amaranth, teff, and millet, beans and legumes like lentils or chickpeas, sweet potatoes, yams, butternut squash and other starchy veggies like yuca or taro.

5. Probiotic foods (try to have every day)

Yogurt, kefir, fermented vegetables like sauerkraut or kimchi and kombucha.

6. Nuts and seeds (in moderation, about 1 to 2 times per day)

Flax seeds, chia seeds, hemp seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, pistachios, hazelnuts and cashews.

7. Other superfoods

Sea vegetables like kelp or wakame, wheat or barley grass, apple cider vinegar, mustards, hot sauces, vinegars like balsamic, coconut palm sugar, blackstrap molasses, dark chocolate, tamari, coconut aminos and cocoa.

What to avoid

A general rule to abide by is that the fewer ingredients used, the better – and of course, homemade food is always best.

Avoid these foods:

  • high fructose corn syrup & sugar in all forms
  • all vegetable oils but coconut, avocado, hemp or olive
  • caffeine
  • processed foods
  • any food additives and chemicals
  • alcohol
