Women’s naturopath and hormone naturopath
Naturopaths can play a role in helping to reset women’s hormones through various holistic approaches. Here are some common strategies I use when working with my female clients:
A women-focused Naturopath may recommend dietary changes to support hormone balance. This can involve emphasising whole, nutrient-dense foods while minimising processed foods, refined sugars, and unhealthy fats. Specific dietary recommendations in women may vary depending on individual needs and hormonal imbalances.
Hormone Naturopaths often utilise herbal remedies to support balance. As a women’s hormone Naturopath myself, I might prescribe herbs with adaptogenic properties, such as ashwagandha or maca, which can help regulate the stress response and support the endocrine system; this all helps with balancing women’s hormones. Other herbs, like Chasteberry, Peony and Dong Quai, may be recommended for conditions related to menstrual irregularities.
Naturopaths may suggest targeted supplementation to address specific women’s hormone imbalances. For example, Omega-3 fatty acids that support hormone production or help regulate menstrual cycles. Magnesium can help with the production of progesterone and healthy stress response.
Lifestyle factors, such as stress, sleep, and exercise, can significantly impact hormone balance. Naturopaths may provide guidance to their female clients around stress management techniques, quality sleep habits, and appropriate exercise routines to support hormonal health.
Toxins from the environment and certain personal care products can disrupt hormone balance. A women-focused Naturopath may recommend detoxification protocols or provide guidance on minimising exposure to toxins and adopting natural and eco-friendly products.
The gut and hormonal balance are interconnected. Naturopaths may focus on improving gut health through dietary changes, probiotics, and other interventions. Supporting a healthy gut microbiome can positively influence women’s hormone regulation.
Naturopaths may order hormone testing, such as saliva or blood tests, to assess hormone levels and identify imbalances. The results in these tests can guide individualised treatment plans targeting specific hormonal imbalances or symptoms.
It’s important to note that naturopathic approaches to hormone balance are typically used as part of a comprehensive treatment plan and may not replace conventional medical interventions when necessary. Working collaboratively with a Naturopath and other healthcare professionals can provide a well-rounded approach to hormonal health.
If you’re a female experiencing a hormonal imbalance and would like support to improve your overall health you can book a consult with Naturopath Lindsay to discuss what working together looks like and how we can help improve your health and hormones.
