How To Support & Manage the Gut-Hormone Connection

In the previous blog post, I detailed the link between gut health and hormone health...

But, I didn't tell you steps that you can implement to support the connection. So, how do we manage this?

Well, you have eat your fibre! Given how often I talk about fibre, I hope you are understanding just how important it is to both gut and hormone health.

I encourage you to add 1 Tbs of ground flaxseeds to your food every single day as they have an anti-oestrogen effect and can help assist with the detoxification of oestrogen. 

Be sure to grind these up daily and not purchase the flaxseed meal and it can go rancid really quickly. You can chuck 1Tbs into your morning smoothie, or you can grind them in a coffee grinder or blender and then sprinkle them on your yogurt or whatever. Up to you.

You definitely need to be managing stress as it largely impacts gut health.

And, of course, support your microbiome. Lactobacillus, in particular, has been shown to help with endometriosis -- and be mindful of antibiotics and the OCP as both disrupt the microbiome. 

Some other tips to manage and support the gut-hormone connection are:

  • Ditch the gluten

  • Eliminate alcohol

  • Eliminate refined carbohydrates, sugar & processed foods

  • Consume anti-inflammatory foods

  • Consume zinc rich foods

  • Manage stress

  • Support the microbiome

    • Bacterial dysbiosis

    • Candida

  • Eliminate endocrine disrupting chemicals and other toxins

  • Caution with medications
