Cooking for hormone balance with Magdalena Wszelaki

Really enjoyed this podcast with Magdalena Wszelaki, the founder of Hormones Balance.
Magdalena talked about the significant health crisis she went through as a result of a highly stressful career in advertising. A high profile and demanding lifestyle, stressful in every way! Mentally stressful, never in the same time zone, lack of sleep, hotel and fast food on the run. This eventually ended in complete adrenal fatigue, autoimmune conditions, estrogen dominance and even depression.
But she was able to heal herself and go into complete …

What men need to know about healthy testosterone levels

Finally it’s the men’s turn!
And yes, estrogen will still be an important topic…even for you men…but let’s start with the male hormone that you are most familiar with, Testosterone.

Mentally detoxing! Where will you shine your flashlight today?

We’ve been talking for a while now about how important detox is in order to balance hormones and maintain optimal health, and how my Keto-Alkaline™ Diet provides a great foundation for physical detoxification.
Detox, though, is about much more than removing physical toxins from your body and environment.
Today I want to talk about the importance of removing the emotional toxins in your life.
Negative emotions truly can be toxic, and in fact are acidic!
Just ask the women in my hormone reset programs, who quickly learn they can not …

Put more Oxytocin into your life for a healthier you

So many lifestyle considerations beyond just diet can impact your health. Sometimes you need to spend a bit of time (and play detective) to figure out what is going on.
Hormone imbalance and many of the challenges women experience in perimenopause or menopause (including packing on the pounds and having trouble getting rid of belly fat) can often be traced back to too much cortisol.
And did you know that too much cortisol impacts your blood sugar levels? And it is your blood sugar levels …
