Diet

A healthy, balanced diet is essential for hormone balance. Include plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean proteins in your diet. Avoid processed foods, sugary snacks, and excessive caffeine, which can disrupt hormonal balance. Eating a balanced diet can help support overall health and hormonal balance.

Stress

Stress management is another crucial aspect of maintaining hormonal balance. Chronic stress can disrupt hormone levels and contribute to a variety of health issues. Practice stress-reducing techniques such as yoga, meditation, deep breathing exercises, or spending time in nature to help manage stress and promote hormonal balance.

Sleep

Getting an adequate amount of sleep is essential for hormone regulation and overall health. Aim for seven to nine hours of quality sleep each night. Create a relaxing bedtime routine and avoid screens and stimulating activities before bed to improve sleep quality. Good sleep hygiene can help support hormonal balance.

Exercise

Regular exercise is essential for balancing hormones, improving mood, and promoting overall health. Aim for a combination of cardiovascular exercise, strength training, and flexibility exercises to stay fit and healthy. Exercise can also help reduce stress levels, which can further support hormonal balance.

Limit your intake of these substances to promote hormonal health. Drinking plenty of water is important for hormone balance and overall health. Aim for at least eight glasses of water per day to stay hydrated and support hormonal balance.

  • “Since I became a patient of Dr. Schultz and FINALLY found someone who could balance my hormones, I HAVE FELT BETTER THAN I DID WHEN I WAS 20!!! I swear this is true!! Because of her diagnostic genius, the level of bioidentical hormones she has fine-tuned to my individual needs have changed my life and restored me to be the best “me” I can be! Dr. Schultz is not just a doctor, I call her my HEALER 🙂 She LISTENS to me, she educates me and encourages me to take good care of myself and to make good choices, and then she allows me to make my own decisions and choices, because she respects that I am an intelligent adult and the expert on my own 58-year-old body. She treats me as a peer and her PARTNER in maintaining my own wellness, and she respects and cares about me! Our appointments start and end with a hug, and I leave her office feeling uplifted, understood, inspired, strengthened and healed in body mind and spirit. She is very holistic,  understanding that we are not just a cluster of symptoms, but that in order to have healthy bodies we must also address our issues, belief systems, and thoughts. Dr. Schultz is a wise and wonderful teacher and I am blessed to have her on my path:) And her staff is awesome too!”
