Analysis by Dr. Joseph Mercola Fact Checked

Story at-a-glance -

  • Maintaining a healthy hormone balance as you age does not automatically mean you must use hormone replacement. There are several helpful lifestyle strategies and nutritional supplements you can try first
  • Avoiding processed food is a foundational strategy for preserving your natural hormone function, so the first tip to balance your hormones is to eat real food. Refined carbohydrates and damaged fats can elevate your estrogen levels and alter other critical hormone levels
  • Studies have shown ashwagandha helps normalize thyroid hormone levels and may be an effective treatment for subclinical hypothyroidism
  • Natural progesterone cream, made from naturally-occurring plant steroids found in wild yam, can be useful for premenstrual challenges such as PMS, breast tenderness and painful cramps
  • Strategies that will augment testosterone naturally include strength training, eliminating sugar, vitamin D, zinc, magnesium, healthy fats, branch chain amino acids, certain herbal supplements and avoiding endocrine disrupting chemicals
