Hormone Health & Your Monthly Cycle
Troubles with energy levels, craving foods or feeling irritable? Could hormones be playing a bigger role than you may think?
Endometriosis is a condition where the endometrial tissue, which normally lines the uterus, grows in other sites in the pelvis, such as the ovaries, bladder, bowel and fallopian tubes. Blood filled cysts may form on the ovaries. These patches of tissue respond to hormones in the same way as the uterine lining, growing and shedding each cycle, and can be responsible for pain, inflammation, and infertility.
Do you feel unsatisfied after a meal, reach for the sugar to get you through that 3pm slump or sift through the pantry once the kids are in bed? Feeling unsatisfied after a meal means you are more likely to build a habit of unnecessary snacking, often including sugary foods.
Having a well-stocked pantry is key to making the healthy choice an easy choice, saving you time and money. There are plenty of “health-foods” out there, but you don’t need to invest in the latest fad or trend to keep on top of things.
Sadly, you can’t out run a bad diet. The food we eat provides the fuel our bodies need for training, competing and recovering and whether you are an athlete or recreational exerciser, it is important to effectively maintain your energy levels to make sure your body is able to function properly.
