Top 5 Ways to Balance Hormones Naturally

A holistic approach to hormone balance is critical, not only for women on a TTC journey, but for anyone seeking to live in optimal health. As a fertility coach and founder of Fertility Coach Academy®, I believe in focusing on the whole person, and not just a Band-Aid approach.


Top 5 Ways to Balance Hormones Naturally

  1. Mindfulness

Practicing mindfulness goes so much deeper than simple self care. The mind is a powerful tool in healing your body and even rewiring your subconscious. Psych-K is a method of changing those subconscious beliefs (and the habits that come from them) that are limiting things like your health, wellbeing, and relationships. I offer Psych-K sessions to help facilitate those changes in my clients.


2. Gratitude Journaling

This is a non-negotiable part of my morning routine. Each morning, I list out what I’m grateful for along with positive affirmations for the day ahead. If you’re new to journaling and need a place to begin, you can join my free journaling challenge here!


3. Nourishing Diet

Nutrition is a key piece of the puzzle in balancing hormones. This includes leafy greens, quality protein (I love wild-caught salmon, grass fed beef, and beans), healthy fats (like avocado and high fat dairy), along with plenty of water (½ your body weight in ounces per day!). And be sure to keep your blood sugar balanced by including a healthy fat or protein with every meal and snack. I have a free guide of a day of hormone friendly meals, if you’re looking for inspiration! There is no one-size-fits-all diet, so I recommend working with a fertility coach and/or dietician to ensure you’re fueling your body with the right foods for you.


4. Movement

What movement looks like in your routine is up to you! Maybe it’s a long walk or a yoga class. Or it could be a HIIT workout or strength training. No matter what you do - make sure it brings you joy and works for your own body, and strive for at least 30 minutes of movement a day.


5. Build a Support System

No matter where you are in life’s journey - TTC, motherhood, or anything in between - you need to find your people. In certain seasons, this could be a medical team, fertility coach, TTC support group, and acupuncturist. In other seasons, it might mean a workout class or a mom’s playgroup. Whatever the case may be, surrounding yourself with people who align with your journey and can encourage you along the way does wonders for your mental (and physical!) health.


Healthy hormones are a building block for so many of our body’s functions. They impact sleep, sexual function, fertility, mood, stress, appetite, and more! If you’re wondering whether or not your hormones need extra love, I would encourage you to work with your medical provider to run some blood work. My top three recommended hormone and fertility related blood tests can be found here. Then strive to reach those optimal levels by implementing the tips above! And don’t hesitate to reach out if you need any help or encouragement along the way.
