For 2 weeks, I have to cut the following....
-cow dairy (only goats milk allowed, soy-no sugar added)
-All grains/potatoes including sweet potatoes
Basically, I am only allowed to have fruits/veggies/protein sources are almond butter or other nuts - just no peanuts/fish/chicken/turkey - can't have oranges/tangerines/melon
With this, I am taking certain suppliments
-Probiotic-for estrogen balance
-Fishoils-weight loss, skin moisture, hormonal balance and cravings
-A hormonal blend of suppliments-Liver support, hormone balance
-A Digestive blend of suppliments-Blood sugar balance, metabolism, healthy body composition
-Magenesium/Calcium - to calm nervous system, for energy and craving control as well as to help with sleep
*(I didn't know what it was until seeing the Naturopathic Dr....here is a bio on it.
Relora is an exciting new natural anti-anxiety/stress relief ingredient to control stress-related eating and drinking that has the added value of being non-sedating with potential anti-depressant properties. In central nervous system receptor binding assays, the plant extracts in Relora bind to several important targets associated with anxiety. It does not bind to the benzodiazepine receptors that would cause sedation, yet has the relaxing qualities of the benzodiazepine class of drugs in a validated anxiolytic animal model. In addition, it normalizes hormone levels associated with stress-induced obesity and eating/drinking behavior.
After the 2 weeks, I need to incorporate things back in slowly (ie. dairy day one - then off the rest of the week to see how my body reacts)
Things I have been told to avoid as much as I can (even after detox etc.)
-Any diet beverages (its the aspartame, apparently reeks havoc on your hormonal health)
-Your white breads/rices etc.
I started on Monday and am feeling good. I have more energy already. I will keep you posted on how it goes!
Congrats on all your hard work, keep it up!!!!!!!! It will all be worth it in the end!

What type of cleanse do you do to balance your hormones? Sounds very interesting.
