I recently started a blog series on balancing hormones naturally.

I have five simple solutions I recommend to women who have issues with hormone health.

I like to call these Hormone Helpers…

And I want to discuss the second one with you today.

Hormone Helper # 2: REMOVE RED MEAT FOR 30 DAYS

Now, this may not be for everybody…

But the results I’ve seen with the ladies I help speaks volumes.

Red meat (especially what you find in your grocery stores)…

Contains high amounts of saturated and hydrogenated fats which are considered unhealthy types of fat [1, 3].

Additionally, red and processed meats contain components like potential carcinogens (e.g. polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons)…

Sodium…

And preservatives.

These have been linked to and contribute to adverse health outcomes [2].

The problem with traditional red meat is most is overly processed and uses grain-fed animals.

Grain-fed red meat is higher in inflammatory Omega-6 fatty acids…

And often laced with antibiotics and pesticides.

You, in turn, are consuming the antibiotics and the pesticides that have been given to the animal during its lifespan.

There’s no wonder consuming too much meat can disrupt hormonal balance as it increases the production of estrogen levels in your body [3].

So what do you do after 30 days?

Look for grass-fed, grass-finished red meat instead.

This ensures there are no antibiotics and pesticides used during the feeding process…

And the vitamins and minerals found in red meat will actually be a benefit instead of harming your hormones.

Interested in eating quality red meat without the harmful chemicals and pesticides, but don’t know where to start?

You can visit here to learn what I recommend to the women that are in my program.

This next one seems pretty standard, but may be the most challenging to implement…

And I’ll give you that one next time.

P.S. If you want to know more about nutrition and hormone health, I go in much more detail in my program, Best of You. What you eat has such a profound effect on your body, and especially your hormones, that I spend much more time going over the solutions to better hormone health inside my program.
