6 Powerful Ways to Balance Hormones & Stop PMS!!!!

Do you have severe PMS? or Feel your hormones are off.. The truth is If you aren't doing anything proactive/preventive, your hormones are probably off or on the way to be. 

As you may know and/or may experience SYMPTOMS ARE irritability, depression, anxiety, bloating, breast tenderness, sugar cravings, mood swings, headaches, insomnia, and cramps. 

Majority of women suffer from PMS which can negatively affect their quality of life. Most women accept this as normal, which is not the case!!! I have so many women come in both old young and everything in-between and 1/9 of my patients have PMS but are coming in for something else. They all think its normal. ITS NOT NORMAL equaling PMS is not a sign of HEALTH. 75% of women in the US have PMS --THIS IS ALARMING ! 
20% Of those women have PMS that is so bad that they can't function without serious medical help and even that is not affective or without side effects . 

“The real fact is that suffering related to menstrual cycles is unnecessary — and not caused by bad luck, but by bad habits, environmental toxins, and stress.” Mark Hyman. 

Dairy, Sugar, caffeine, alcohol, stress, and lack of exercise make PMS worse.

The reason why you have PMS is because of inflammation and increased estrogen which makes your progesterone decrease

1) Take a chance and GO Paleo:) with MOSTLY GREENS & limited fruit. 
2) Clean up your diet” 
▪ no refined flour, dairy, sugar, caffeine, alcohol and processed foods or even vegetable oil. .

4) EXERCISE EVERY DAILY. 
it balances hormones but it also brings fresh blood and oxygen which decreases inflammation. Aim for 30 minutes of aerobic exercise, 4 to 5 times a week.

5) –Get rid or donate plastic storage containers & perfume
These disrupt are hormones disruptors.  The most common hormone disruptors include:
• Parabens
• Phthalates

10 REASONS TO DETOX

You take an occasional vacation, Right ?? Well your body needs the same ... and here is why...

1. TOXINS

Did you know there are over 80,0000 chemicals in your household and personal care products ?\

There are also almost 30,000,000 chemicals in the ENVIRONMENT!!!  30,000,000! 

There are also millions of toxins in our food, water. and air we breathe. On top of that was are constantly being exposed to radiation which is also detrimental to our health. 

Long-term exposure to toxins (environmental pollutants, cancer-causing chemicals, preservatives, pesticides, heavy metals, and industrial waste) affects our metabolism, behavior, immune system, and leads to disease.  They are stored in tissues and cells EVERYWHERE!!! 

2. Prevention of  chronic disease.

Environmental toxins are responsible for many cancers, neurological diseases, heart disease, strokes..EVERYTHING. . Our bodies detox naturally but these symptoms are usually not simulated enough or overloaded!!  Cleansing/ Detoxing assists and improves what our bodies are trying to do naturally.

*****ANNA recommends if you live in the city to do the purification program by standard process( please see our shop for site link), 2 TIMES/ PER YEAR (spring & fall) . Winter & summer a 10 DAY CLEANSEwhich you can get through our  on line pharmacy, on our website page  labeled"Shop" . The pharmacy is Fullscript and the cleanse is Core Restore. 

Are you thinking about trying to detox but are unsure exactly what the benefits may be? When done correctly — that is to say, in a healthy, safe and controlled environment —getting your body clean and healthy can result in a wide range of positive effects.

Simply put, our bodies don't function very well when they're loaded with toxins. We may have joint pain, headaches, digestive disorders, sleep problems, and lack of energy. Depression may be eased and memory may be improved as a result of detoxification.

When your body & its organ systems are aligned, a shift also occurs with our mental and emotional states.. We can make better decisions, analyze accurately, and see things differently. After detoxing you will feel more clear and grounded

4 Inflammatory Foods That Might Be Preventing You From Getting Pregnant.

Let food be our medicine!

 High inflammatory foods cause hormonal to become imbalances, they can also spike your insulting and good sugar, as well as lower immunity. 

Are You Ready?

 #1 – Sugar. It spikes your insulin  levels and is the  reason behind your cravings, irritability and mood swings.  This is processed foods such as  baked goods, candy & fruit juices
 

#2 – Wheat. The problem with our wheat today is that it is hybridized. It is NOT produced in a traditional way. it also contains pesticides. Wheat is an inflammatory food. 
 

#3 – Dairy. Dairy is a  common food sensitivity. Aside from the antibiotics and hormones which you are eating and drinking, dairy contains a protein called A1 casein. This protein is inflammatory & over stimulates your immune system.. 
 

#4 – Vegetable Oils. Soy, corn, canola, cottonseed, safflower and sunflower oils are inexpensive and  contain toxic trans fats and are highly inflammatory. They also increase your Omega 6 fatty acids which are important but too many Omega 6’s will throw off the balance to Omega 3’s which are anti-inflammatory. You need Omega 3's for healthy hormones. Replace these oils with avocado oil,  grass fed butter, ghee, coconut oil,  and olive oil. 

You are what you east- A diet in whole foods, organic protein, and vegetables will create an healthy environment for your to become pregnant

    What is Integrative Health?

    Everything We Do At WellFit Studio Is Solely To Heal, Improve & Enhance The Quality Of Your Life, Health, & Well-Being

    Regardless of your current state of being or your own pathway to striving for optimal health, everything we do at WellFit will further improve the quality of care you are receiving and your overall health. Our natural methods of healing are only going to enhance any traditional methods because we search for the root cause of your symptoms.

    We put you in the center of healthy. "You" includes a deep analysis to your emotional, physical and spiritual health. At WellFit, you have the option of integrative methods, rather than simply isolating the problem and the one thing that feels disconnected within the body. We take a look at the whole system. 

    Integrative health = Nutrition and Exercise are medicine. 

    Of course acupuncture will have an effect on the body, though acupuncture is optimized when you are experiencing positive whole body health: when you are eating and exercising right. In many cases, if you're deficient in minerals, vitamins, proteins, and any other energy food type that fuels your body, it would be impossible to receive the full benefits of acupuncture.

    Just as important as moving your physical body by running, lifting weights, and doing power yoga, it is just as important to relax the body and ultimately the mind. Research has shown that most diseases could be avoided by proper stress management. Most pain can also be prevented and reduced by proper body alignment, and here we specifically use Postural Therapy.

    For most of us, life is stressful in one way or another. And these stressors are heightened for those who live in the city and have a busy lifestyle. In addition, we tend to find the time to exercise in a way that stresses the body without ever consciously relaxing the body in some form (besides sleep - though we would bet sufficient sleep is also questionable).

    Acupuncture and integrative health is a targeted way to restore, relax and condition your nervous system - a preventative and restorative medicine. 

    If you receive an individualized and specific treatment plan, follow that plan. It is life changing and there are many who can testify to that.

    5 Health Tips For Fall

    1. Reclaim your morning. Before you check your emails, take care of the kids, or catch up on the news, set an intention for your day. Take 10-20 deep breaths and focus in on the following three intentions:
    1) Think of something you are grateful for.
    2) Think of something that makes you smile
    3) And finally, think of something you would like to accomplish for the day

    Remind yourself of your strengths, and always be kind. This a way to set your day off right!! As an bonus it aids in regulating stress and boosting immunity.

    2. Drink something good!!!! Hot ginger: Try replacing that extra cup of coffee with a cup of ginger tea. Ginger is natural anti-immflamatory and can help generate “yang energy” which directly translates to war energy. This will help you fuel your POWER for the day. lemon water: lemon is a natural liver detoxifier. The liver is in charge of filtering your blood along with other functions, so its important to support it. A natural way to gently support your liver is to have 20 ounces of lemon water daily first thing in the morning . In the fall if you tend to run cold, try it with warm water or combining it with your ginger tea. The warm water will make it more enjoyable.

    3. Eat Cooked & seasonable Vegetables instead of raw vegetables. In Chineses medicine raw vegetables are thought cool the body. In order to have balance, when it is cold out, you want to eat warmer foods. Try baked butternut squash, cauliflower, or carrots.

    4 Supplement D & Fish oil : If you live in New England most likely you need Vitamin D. Did you know vitamin is important for immune health ? Make sure as the days get darker that you get a good source of vitamin D . Not all vitamins are the same so at a minimal get a brand from whole foods, but the best option is to get it through a licensed health care provider.

    5. Acupuncture: People often ask how frequently should I revcieve acupcunture? And my reply is how stressed are you? =). If you have no stress in your life or you have a great way to release it on a daily basis you would want acupuncture is during the of transition through the seasons. If you tend to be more stressed and don’t have a way to cope healthily, take some time once a week to enjoy all the benefits acupuncture has to offer. #fall #fall health # wellness
