It is not easy navigating the difficult world of women and nutrition. Trying to manoeuvre through the incredible sea of information that is presented to us through media, friends, family or culture can be overwhelming, daunting and at times discouraging.

The first thing we need to do is to stop looking outward for all of the answers to what our body needs. We have lost sight of our own intuition, and we have put our faith in the big business of diet culture. As women, several of us have succumbed to the trends that send us down the path of dieting, which is basically food restriction.

Food restriction is how we create these incredibly harsh cravings that cause us to make poor food choices and create unsatisfactory health. The outcome, our bodies slowly start to lose their ability to function optimally. Symptoms for most women range from infertility to unwanted weight gain or impossible weight loss, brain fog, irritability, headaches, fatigue, bloating, indigestion and irregular menstrual cycles. How can we make a shift? It is not easy and it will not happen overnight, because we have taken several years of our lives to get to this point, yet there is a way, with patience and commitment women can shift their bodies back to working for them, rather than against them.

I think when discussing women and their health, we need to address hormones. Hormones are usually the first culprit to why a woman’s body is not functioning properly, and the truth is, if one hormone is out of balance, all of them are. The first step in balancing hormones starts with looking at our digestive tract. After years of wear and tear our gut can become worn out. This all occurs from dieting, unhealthy food choices, sedentary lifestyle and exposure to chemicals, hormones, antibiotics and pesticides. Even if you have no digestive issues, poor gut health can present itself in several different ways including skin conditions, depression, illness, weight gain, and a general feeling of being unwell. So if you do switch to a healthy diet without ‘fixing’ your gut, you may find that you are not feeling much better or obtaining the results you were looking for.
