Your weekly tips to optimize Fertility!

Hormones

Hormones play a huge role in fertility. Ratios are the most important factor when it comes to fertility!

 



Estrogen Dominance is when the ratio of progesterone to estrogen is low. This blocks thyroid hormone conversion (T4 to T3) which can effect your ability to conceive. Estrogen dominance is involved in endometriosis, PCOS, and formation of ovarian cysts.prep!





High Blood Sugar leads to excess Androgens. High sugar levels confuse the body into creating androgen male sex hormones over female ones. High blood sugar is the #1 cause of PCOS.

Blend. Add up to 1/2 c coconut milk for easier blending, and lighter consistency. I like my smoothies thicker so I didn't add any here. I just pushed the smoithie down several times while blending.

Balancing Blood Sugar


Balancing blood sugar is important when balancing hormones. This is all about ratios. When you are eating a meal with sugar, it is necessary to make sure you are getting the following:


Fiber

Protein

Fats


If any of these three are missing you will likely have a sugar crash. Symptoms of a sugar crash include: Feeling tired and sluggish, headaches, body pains, shakiness, hunger, irritability, and anxiety.
