Self-Care is a big trending topic and an important concept we want to explore with hormonal vitality in mind. First, Self-Care is not a synonym for pampering nor does it require investment in everything from candles to special pajamas. Self-Care encompasses the actions taken to promote good health and well-being as well as the prevention of illness. There is no better time than now to incorporate principles of self-care for optimized vitality!
What we eat has a profound effect on our overall hormonal balance, our mood, and the vitality of our appearance. We can mimic the look-good, feel-good effects of estrogen by looking to the plant world and a fabulous source of vitality called phytoestrogens. These vital molecules are found in the seeds, roots and sometimes the bark of plants, and are concentrated in foods we can easily incorporate including beans, nuts and legumes.
