Hormonal imbalance can be a silent disruptor, often going undetected while it insidiously affects your wellbeing. For many women, the personal quest to find equilibrium is about much more than symptom management—it’s about reclaiming a sense of normalcy and vitality. Sleepless nights, acne, mood swings, low sex drive, low energy – the list goes on and on!

The key to “fixing” hormone health is not in quick fixes, but in creating lasting habits that not only bring noticeable change but forge lasting results. Wondering what the heck I’m talking about? Scroll my IG if you’re confused! 😉 Now, if you’re with me – in this post, we explore three strategies any woman can do!! Each habit is rooted in simplicity yet carries potent potential to transform your day-to-day life.

1. Stacking Your Magnesium (Mag)

Magnesium plays a significant role in over 300 enzymatic reactions in the body, including those that regulate your hormones. To harness its full potential, consider employing a tactic known as ‘Magnesium stacking’. This means incorporating several forms of Magnesium at different times in the day.

Start your morning with a variant of Magnesium such as MagTech, which combines Taurate, Glycinate, and Threonate—each offering unique benefits to the body. Taurate is often associated with cardio protective abilities, Glycinate for calming effects, and Threonate for cognitive function.

In the evening, wind down with a different blend, like Reacted Magnesium, which includes Malate, Citrate, and Glycinate. The combination of these forms may support energy production, healthy metabolism, and muscle function—benefits that play into better sleep and overnight rejuvenation.

2. Making & Meeting a Morning Protein Goal

What you choose to eat for your morning meal sets the stage for your body’s metabolic process throughout the day. To maintain blood sugar balance and fend off afternoon fatigue and cravings, aim for a breakfast packed with 30-35 grams of protein. Preferably within an hour of waking up and BEFORE coffee.

Swap out sweet, carb-laden breakfasts for savory options that can include eggs, Greek yogurt, or a high-quality protein shake. This simple switch helps stabilize blood sugar levels from the morning onward, potentially easing the work of your hormones for the rest of the day.

3. Regulating Your Nervous System

Cortisol, the stress hormone, when elevated, can wreak havoc on your overall hormonal landscape. Actively regulating your nervous system is a proactive way to manage stress and lower cortisol levels. One approach is to engage in Polyvagal toning exercises.

Polyvagal theory emphasizes the importance of the vagus nerve in emotion regulation and stress response. These practices might include deep breathing, social engagement, or cold exposure, depending on what resonates with you. And if meditation isn’t your thing, don’t worry—there are plenty of Polyvagal exercises to explore. Find one that fits into your life and feels right for you, then make it a habitual effort.

Each tweak suggested here is more than a temporary fix; it’s a step toward a stable, new norm where hormonal health is centered. Remember, as with any changes to your health regimen, it’s advised to consult with a healthcare provider.

By making these new practices a part of your daily routine, you may very well notice the shift in how you feel—because when hormones find their balance, so do you.
