1. Add Healthy Fats
Healthy fats are important to get your body to produce the right number of hormones. By getting more healthy fats into your diet, you can help regulate the hormones and increase metabolism. While doing this, you can also reduce inflammation. All you need to do is eat more foods that are rich in healthy fats. You can find these kinds of foods at any grocery store.
- Foods rich in healthy fats, including:
- Chia seeds
- Dark chocolate
- Extra virgin olive oil
- Grass fed beef
- Whole eggs
- Wild caught salmon
Try to eat and/or cook with these ingredients as often as possible. You could also look into what sort of supplements you could take.

2. Limit Alcohol & Caffeine Intake
Try to drink less alcohol and less caffeine. When you have too much caffeine it can get your system worked up, much like a lack of sleep does. This is similar to what a hormonal imbalance will do.
Too much alcohol can also make estrogen the dominant hormone being produced. It can also slow down the functioning of the pancreas. Finally, when you drink too much alcohol, it can lower the levels of testosterone in the body.
All of these in combination make for a total change in your hormonal balance.
Cut back slowly on alcohol and/or caffeine.
3. Balance Between Omega-3 & Omega-6
It has been shown that there is an overabundance of Omega-6 fatty acids in an average person’s diet. This compound comes from foods such as eggs, poultry, cereal, hemp oil, whole grain bread, nuts and vegetable oil. In order to balance this out, a person needs more omega-3 acids.
There are a number of foods you can eat to balance this out. You could also take more supplements in order to balance it out if these foods are hard to come by.
- Omega-3 rich foods such as:
- Chia seeds
- Cod liver oil
