Part 1: On the foods high in Estrogen. Click link to watch:
Certain foods contain hormone-like compounds called phytoestrogens, plant-based foods high in estrogen-like compounds. These phytoestrogens are an excellent natural hormone replacement that converts into estrogen-like compounds in the body. It is best to use a variety of estrogen foods for overall menopause health. Also, do not over indulge in these foods, balance is the key to a variety of raw foods. My aim is to remind my body of what it should make and then stop taking any form of supplement. If I am always taking a supplement my body will stop making it, but if I remind my body what to make—and stop the supplement it will kick in a create what is needed using all the nutrients from my live vibrant raw food diet!
Foods rich in phytoestrogens, a natural estrogen:
Number one: Flax Seed, (See My Next Youtube for Best Natural Estrogen Sources!) Flaxseeds have 800 times more plant estrogen than any other plant based source!
List of Foods High in Estrogen
1. Flax Seeds
2. Fennel Seeds
5. Sesame Seeds
6. Berries of Saw Palmetto
Here are a list of herbs you can take to help lessen negative menopausal symptoms and can easily be stirred into teas via tincture.
Chaste tree berry
Red raspberry leaf
I only take Vitamins for three weeks to remind my body to make what it’s missing, then I stop. I do not depend on any pills or vitamins to balance my hormones. I use “live organic foods” to add estrogen and enzymes to my body, which naturally balances hormones. I am excited that I did not cave in and take “medicine”.
