Overview

Nutritionist and international educator Sonia Gaemi offers women this step-by-step program of food solutions to support their hormonal systems. Readers will learn how food choices can increase metabolism, balance blood sugar and insulin, and cleanse the body of toxins. The program stresses food choices rich in antioxidants and phytohormones that can boost the immune system, reduce stress, and slow the effects of aging.

Most women, at some time in their lives, suffer from debilitating hormone-related physical or psychological symptoms . Clinical research suggests that diet and lifestyle changes effectively control these problems. This is a complete, step-by-step program of sensible and healthy eating advice designed especially for women.

From the first signs of puberty until well after the onset of menopause, women are acutely aware of the role hormones play in their lives. Most women suffer, at sometime in their lives, from some debilitating physical or psychological symptoms directly related to hormone imbalance. The most effective courses of treatment for these problems, further research indicates, start with changes in diet and lifestyle. The typical western diet (high in processed foods, rich with animal fats, and lacking important plant-derived chemicals called phytohormones) might fail to provide women with the support they need for healthy hormonal function.

This book, written by an educator and nutritionist with considerable experience studying the food habits of many cultures, offers you a complete, easy-to-follow program for making eating choices that can lead to better health through hormonal balance. Based on an insightful new approach to eating called the food wisdom pyramid, this program describes how the flavors and colors of foods indicate the presence of certain phytohormones that may help balance and regulate one of the body's most complicated systems. Drawing on memories from her world travels, cases from her private practice, and her own life experience, the author gives practical advice on how to use your own senses to know what foods your body needs. The program includes a section of delicious recipes, along with tips for shopping, meal planning, and eating well while traveling.
