I've been searching for an a natural approach to help me balance my hormones as a bridge to getting raw now so that my body can do it itself. The optimal thing would be to just go raw, and I hate having excuses. But thing has really taken a toll of my personal life to the extent that I feel I need to do something now so that I can actually succeed. The mood swings and general feelings that my cycle have been causing are driving me insane. So I'm trying something out.
My coworker at the health food store I work at told me about Maca root and how it had helped her tons with similar symptoms to mine. I decided to check it out. Turns out its a Peruvian root that has been used there for a very long time, traditional aboriginal treatments are right up my alley. It is simply dried and rendered to an almost flour like consistency. It basically aids endocrine function which is the central station for hormone management in your body. I figured it was worth a shot. The dosage recommended is 3/4-1 tsp a day in a smoothie, juice, water or incorporated to any meal. It smells and tastes good, no faces on this one! That to me is a very good sign, becuse if it doesnt taste good, I usually don't stick with it.
