Hormonal Imbalance in Women & Men

Understanding Hormones & How to Balance Them:

Treating hormones can improve the health of both Men & Women. If you have infertility symptoms then chances are that you may have hormone imbalance.

What are Hormones?

Hormones are messengers that travel in body’s blood vessels to tissues & organs. They affect different processes, including body’s Physical development, Metabolism (absorb needy energy from the food consumed), Sexual functionality, Reproduction System  & Mood Swings.

Hormones are generated by Endocrine glands, some of these glands are Pituitary, Pineal, Thymus, Thyroid, Adrenal glands and Pancreas. Women produce hormones in their ovaries and Men produce hormones in their testes.

The body needed the basic building blocks by using fats and cholesterol to generate Hormones. Lacking of proper diet can affect the fat & cholesterol level which may be the reason of occurrence of any hormone problems. 



Basic things to opt to improve body’s capability to create and balance hormones:

Sound Sleep is a must:

As per study suggest, lack of sound sleep causes hormone imbalance. Lack of sound sleep enhances stress level which in turn causes sleep problems. Meditation like pranayam, healthy food intake having Fats like coconut oil, organic and butter, disciplined routine can surely contribute to a sound sleep. To maintain the sleep cycle, it is better to consume evening meal having proteins, vegetables and healthy fats at least 4 hours before bedtime.

Limit the intake of Polyunsaturated Fats:

The polyunsaturated fats are highly unstable and oxidize easily in the body which causes inflammation and mutation in body cells. The body is made up of saturated and monounsaturated fats and it needs these for optimal health.

As mentioned earlier that the body needed the basic building blocks by using fats to generate Hormones. When we provide the body, a highly concentrated polyunsaturated fat instead of the required optimal ratio then certainly body has to incorporate them into our body cells during routine cell repair and regeneration. In arterial cells, these changes may cause inflammation that can clog arteries. When these oils are incorporated into cells in reproductive tissue, may generate problems like endometriosis and PCOS.

One must be selective while consuming fats like Vegetable oil, peanut oil, canola oil, soybean oil, margarine, shortening, or other chemically altered fats. Rather choose fats like coconut oil, real butter, and olive oil (at room temperature).

Reduce the Caffeine intake:

  http://www.divyagarbhsanskar.com/
High ratio of caffeine intake can negatively affect the endocrine system. This particularly may harm when there exist other hormone stress enhancers like pregnancy period, exposure to toxins etc.

One must reduce the coffee intake & prefer herbal teas instead. Intake coffee with coconut oil is an viable option.

Consult health care professional for the Supplement:

It will always be good to take advice from health care professional for hormones related supplements.
a) Vitamin D is supportive of hormone function. Sun is the best source of Vitamin D & it can be obtained from a D3 supplement or Fermented Cod Liver Oil.
b) Maca is rich in minerals, an essential fatty acids & good for hormones.  
c) Gelatin supports hormone production, digestive health and sooth inflammation in joints. It is a major source of calcium, magnesium and phosphate. 
d) Leptin Hormone Balance is a must to balance other hormones. It helps in fertility, make weight loss easier, improve sleep, and lower inflammation.
e) Fermented Cod Liver Oil can generate building blocks for hormone production. It is a major source of Omega-3s and beneficial fats.
f) Magnesium contributes to better sleep which in turn is good for hormonal balance. 

Minimize the ill effect of Toxins:

Pesticides used in farming, employing plastics material with foods intake, other household chemicals and contaminated drinking water are some of prime sources of toxin intake in the body. These toxins duplicate the hormones in the body and prevent the body from producing real hormones. 

If you have hormone imbalance or infertility problem, then preventive action must be taken to avoid consumption of these toxin. Some of these measures are; Cooking in either glass or non-coated metal pans & avoid non-stick or Teflon, avoid storing eatable food in plastics and opt for best water purifier for drinking purpose. Increase consumption of organic foods whenever possible which is having least chemical pesticides with them.

Coconut Oil consumption should be there

Coconut Oil generates building blocks for hormone production & thus is a good choice for hormone health. Further use of Coconut Oil can help in weight loss & in reduction of inflammation. It also possess antimicrobial and antibacterial properties.

Light Exercise & Yoga- practice under Guidance

Routine exercise & yoga have additional health benefits. If you have hormone imbalance, focus on relaxing exercises like walking, swimming, light yoga practice and avoid the heavy exercise. Exercise must be done under proper guidance.

Note: It is always necessary to consult a specialist or a physician or a health-care professional for the individual requirements.

Garbh Sanskar : Fertility Diet Foods to Avoid & Prefer

Garbh Sanskar : Women Fertility Diet Foods to Avoid & Prefer:

We need to make an intentional effort to control the consumption of food intake in order to regulate our body performance. All the focus should be on “Healthy Balance Diet Nourishment”. Would be parent should follow the recommended diet as suggested by the Health care professional. A healthy diet intake is vital for a successful pregnancy and a healthy baby. A balance diet can help to correct hormone imbalances that may affect ability to conceive. There are certain foods that may lower the fertility. Before conceiving, mind/body needs to be working at optimum levels. It is very possible to improve the quality of egg and mature the sperm in approximately 4 months time.

A balanced diet is essential for the body to function properly. Supplements having protein and calories can help in improving fertility. Providing sufficient nutrition should be the basis for treatment of infertility. Bee pollen and royal jelly are extremely nutrient-rich bee products that help stimulate fertility. 

Sugar Intake need to avoid or regulate
Sugar may affect the insulin levels to rise. When you take high sugar content food, your body releases insulin hormone to subside the blood sugar level. The ups & downs of this hormone may bring along other hormones as well through connected endocrine system. When just one hormone deregulate, it affects the others – including sex hormones (testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, etc.)
Sugar is hard to digest & needed the stored essential nutrients to consume it. Liver need to over work in this way which negatively affect its routine functionality.

Take enough Fat Milk
  http://www.divyagarbhsanskar.com/To maintain body’s cellular structure fat is needed. Intake of milk low in fat may cause an imbalance of hormones throughout the body, which further causes failure in ovulation or production of a healthy egg. As per study, Women who consume enough fat were found to have a lower risk of infertility. Eating healthy fat milk is helpful in reproduction.

Balance intake of Soy
A diet having small intake of soy may not be troublesome. Soy is high in something called phytic acid which prevents nutrients from being absorbed. They also consumes stored nutrients while trying to digest them.

Little of Processed Foods intake
One must be selective while taking the processed food content (Trans Fats, high fructose corn syrup, and soda). Their intake may insert different toxins into our body. The liver then becomes less efficient in process of cleaning them. We need to employ a lot of vital nutrient previously stored to digesting them.

Caffeine intake need to avoid or regulate
The liver function is to convert caffeine intake so that it may be passed in your urine & simultaneously deals with excreting the necessary hormones. If the liver is overworked in one area, it can’t function properly. Caffeine increases the waste disposal of calcium from the body which must be prevented in order to sustain possibility of absorbing vital vitamin D to nourish the body as well as to provide little baby with strong bones. As per study women who regularly consume coffee had up reduction in fertility or an early miscarriage. As per study it is good to avoid caffeine containing food and drinks (colas, chocolate, black teas and coffee etc.) for at least 3 months before conceiving.

Note: Avoidable food and exposure to chemical toxins negatively affect the sperm and egg production which further could be the cause of miscarriage. Simultaneously it is equally important to consult a physician or health-care provider before coming to any conclusion.

They offer key nutrients like vitamins A, D, E, and K2, iodine, and omega-3 fats that help in women’s fertility. To maximize chances of conceiving it is necessary to maintain optimum health of would be parents. This can be achieved by overcoming nutritional deficiencies and improving sperm production and quality. Choosing the right nutrients and in the right quantities is far important. Supplements are necessary because even the best diet may not contain all the needed nutrients to give you the best chance of conceiving. It is very possible to improve the quality of the egg and the sperm in approximately 4 months time.

a) Vitamin A (Fat Soluble Vitamin) promotes better cervical fluid and helps ensure follicles develop correctly.
b) Vitamin D (Fat Soluble Vitamin) supports the production of estrogen in both men and women, is needed for insulin production, and is the key in regulating cell growth and deciding how those cells grow.
c) Vitamin E (Fat soluble vitamin & antioxidant) helps in proper absorption of fat soluble vitamins A&D. It normalizes the sperm & hormone production. 
d) Vitamin K2 in combination with Vitamins A&D, helps the body to utilize proteins.

e) Iodine (a non metallic trace element  or Mineral) in combination with vitamin A, improves thyroid functioning. Helps in sex hormone production.
f) Omega-3 fats help in regulating hormones promotes ovulation, and increases blood flow to the reproductive organs and increases cervical fluid like vitamin A also do.
g) Other necessary Nutrients like Vitamin B, Vitamin C & Zinc.



Elaboration regarding Vitamins:

 http://www.divyagarbhsanskar.com/a) Vitamin A:
It promotes better cervical fluid and helps ensure follicles develop correctly. Vitamin A can be found in animal products (retinols) and in plant foods (beta carotene) as well. The bodycan easily convert retinols to a usable form of vitamin A than its conversion from beta carotene source. Infants, children & people with poor health or on low fat diets have hard time converting beta carotene (plant foods).

Sources include:  Butter and Cream, High Vitamin Cod Liver Oil, Regular Cod Liver Oil, Eggs from pastured chickens contain 2/3 more Vitamin A than conventional eggs and 7 times more beta carotene. 

b) Vitamin D:
Animals that are allowed to be out in the pasture are recommended, as the exposure to UV-B rays from the sun allow the animal’s body to produce more vitamin D.
Sources include: Cod Liver Oil, Pastured Eggs,Fish, Butter, Sunlight.

c) Vitamin E:
Being an antioxidant basically means that it deactivates free radicals within our bodies. It has been shown to increase fertility when given to both men and women. It helps in regulating the production of cervical mucus. Vitamin E helps to normalize hormone production by rejuvenating the endocrine system. It is also essential in cellular respiration and the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins. It has been known as the 'sex vitamin" that carries oxygen to the sex organs. 

Sources include: Butter, Grains like wheat kernel (white flour), Watercress, Wheat germ, Seeds like sunflowers, Nuts like  almonds,  Legumes, Dark Green Leafy Vegetables, Unrefined (and unheated) oils like olive and sunflower oil, Pastured eggs also contain 3 times more vitamin E than conventional eggs. 

d) Vitamin K2:
It is a fat soluble compound that assists vitamins A & D. 
Sources include: Egg Yolks, Butter, High vitamin butter oil {natural supplement}, Fish Eggs

e) Iodine:
It helps in making thyroid hormones in our body. Our bodies cannot make it on their own, so you must consume iodine in your diet. Iodine deficiency may affect our thyroid, adrenals, and entire endocrine system. Iodine deficiency may cause Infant mortality and thus it is been related to higher rates of miscarriages and still births. Iodine should be a vital part of a fertility diet. The diet is applicable in the prenatal as well as for the nursing period. 
Sources include: Soil & Sea Foods. Fruits and Vegetables grown by the sea, including coconut products, Blackstrap molasses, Butter, Dried Kelp, Spinach, Milk and dairy products (at least 20% of iodine is lost during pasteurization so raw is best),  Eggs, iodized salt.

f) Omega 3 fatty acids:
Fats help in increasing a woman’s fertility by regulating hormones and ovulation. It stimulate the production of sex hormones. They also increase the quantity of fertile cervical mucus and the blood flow to the reproductive organs. Women who are suffering from infertility generally have lower levels of omega 3 fats. They are necessary for healthy hormone functioning. They also control inflammation which may interfere with getting and staying pregnant.
Alongside the Men who do not have enough omega 3′s in their system may have problems with sperm production as they lacks necessary DHA (present within fats) who protect the sperm from free radicals and damage. For men essential fatty acid supplementation is crucial because the semen is rich in prostaglandins which are produced from these fats.
There are 3 different types of omega 3 fats; alpha-linolenic acid (ALA- plant based), eicosapentaenioc acid (EPA – animal based), and docosahexaenioc acid (DHA – animal based). 
Sources include:
The essential fatty acids are found in black currant seed oil, borage oil, evening primrose oil, flax seed oil seeds, nuts, pulses, beans and unrefined vegetable oils.
Plant based ALA can be found in Walnuts, Flaxseed & Hemp.
Animal based EPA and DHA can be found in Egg yolks, oily coldwater fish like salmon, herring, tuna, cod, and trout. 

g) Other necessary Nutrients:-

Vitamin B:
It is a water soluble vitamin that can help to regulate menstrual cycles and help in maintaining the quality of both egg and sperm. Vitamin B6 is especially helpful in lengthening the luteal phase of the cycle & also helps in balancing progesterone levels. It is required for a healthy nervous system and help maintain muscle tone in the intestinal tract.

Sources include: Lentils, Beans, Avocados, Kefir, and Potatoes etc.

Vitamin C:
An effective antioxidant that protects the DNA of both egg and sperm. Improves sperm quality, protecting sperm and the DNA within it from damage. Helps in neutralizing toxins within the body. It also aids in production of sperm and semen, improves the quality of semen by keeping it less sticky and thus allowing the sperm to move freely.
Sources include: Red peppers, Orange, Broccoli, Kiwi, Papaya, strawberries etc.

Zinc:
It is an essential component of genetic material which is necessary for the body to utilize efficiently the reproductive hormones, oestrogen and progesterone. Thus zinc is vital for the health of reproductive organs. A deficiency of zinc may cause poor fertility and greater chance of miscarriage. This may occur due to chromosomal changes in either partner lacking zinc. Zinc present in the woman’s body utilizes reproductive hormones, oestrogen and progesterone. Zinc present in the man’s body can greatly impact the sperm count. Zinc is responsible to make the outer layer and the tail of the sperm.
Source include: Whole grains, Whole fat dairy products, Seeds like sunflower and pumpkin seeds, Molasses and Maple Syrup.

Folic Acid:
It is part of the very important B-complex family of vitamins that are necessary to produce the genetic system DNA and RNA, of the egg & the sperm as well. Folic acid in combination with vitamin B12 works well to ensure that the baby’s genetic codes remain intact.

Selenium:
It is an antioxidant that helps to protect the body from free radicals. Free radicals are highly unstable and set off a process called oxidation which can have harmful effects on the every cell in the body. Thus selenium can prevent chromosome breakage, which otherwise cause birth defects and miscarriages. Selenium helps to maximise sperm production. Blood selenium levels have been found to be lower in men with low sperm counts. It works synergistic-ally with vitamin E, and preserves natural elasticity of tissue.

Beta-Carotene:
It is a powerful antioxidant which helps to protect egg and sperm DNA from damage by harmful free radicals.
Source Include: Multivitamin and Mineral.

Royal Jelly:

It helps in optimizing hormone balance in both sexes i.e. Male & Female. Many believe it enhances sexual performance.


Note: Vitamin/mineral deficiencies, and exposure to chemical toxins negatively affect the sperm and egg production which further could be the cause of miscarriage.  If consume over a short period, then it shall be viable to take supplemental digestive enzymes that ensures full utilization of all nutrients. Simultaneously it is equally important to consult a physician or health-care provider before taking any kind of supplemental vitamins.
