If you are a woman do you suffer from hot flashes, insomnia, PMS, weight gain, or thyroid issues? If you are a man do you struggle to keep erections, have prostate issues that cause you to get up several times each night? Have you been diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes or one of many thyroid diseases? Do you have Endometriosis? Hormone imbalances affect all of us especially as we age.
The endocrine system is very complex. Many environmental chemicals, pesticides, EMF frequencies, food additives, and other toxins trick the body into thinking they are hormones, therefore they can cause a lot of disruption and symptoms in our bodies. It is almost impossible to go thru life without a period in life where you will experience hormone imbalance symptoms. If we take a look at one area where hormones can wreak havoc on your life it would the menopause. However, most vegans have no issue with any of the common menopause symptoms like hot flashes or insomnia or memory loss. Over the years we see hundreds of women on a vegan diet going thru menopause with ease, so we know how much our food affects our health, but until now we have not had much research of how a vegan diet can help other hormonal imbalances.
Dr. Neal Barnard is an expert in endocrine disorders and he has many years of experience showing how a vegan diet can reverse type 2 diabetes, but now he has published his latest book that shows it has helped many get off their meds for thyroid disease, or to avoid surgery for endometriosis or prostate surgery. I was fortunate to interview Dr. Barnard on my podcast. Click below to listen to what he has to say on this subject.
Since I am a homeopath I use homeopathy along with dietary changes to help anyone with hormone imbalances. I have helped so many women balance their hormones with homeopathy. It is more rare that I get a patient that does not have issues. The remedies I use vary depending on their symptoms. Along with homeopathic remedies I use Gemmotherapy remedies that are great in helping the symptoms caused by the imbalance. For example, the Gemmo called Rosmarinus Officinalis is a good one because it focuses a lot of its healing action on the liver, which has a huge role in hormone balancing. Rosmarinus not only assists with the processing of hypercholesterolemia and elevated triglycerides, but it also balances the sex hormones in both men and women.
For women, it helps clear the liver of excess hormones from birth control, and aids in the pains of dysmenorrhea and the treatment of hormonal acne by clearing the gluey toxins. In men, Rosmarinus Oﬃcinalis is indicated in congestive prostate problems and hormonal sexual dysfunction. So I have used this Gemmo along with Vaccinium Vitis Idaea or Lingonberry Gemmo, which in menopausal women reactivates the estrogenic activity of the ovaries to help balance vaginal dryness and hot ﬂashes. Gemmotherapy remedies work so well and they are very easy for anyone to take. Also, they are so safe.
I teach all about the Gemmos and how to use them in my VS Club. Take advantage of the pandemic special offer and join now for only $10/month.
In closing, hormonal imbalances are much improved with a plant-based, vegan diet but if you can learn effective homeopathy it can be life-changing.
