The hormone reset diet or the supercharged hormone diet is a concept of a naturopathic doctor Dr. Natasha Turner. To begin with, the body is made to undergo cleansing for two-weeks, so that excess hormones like estrogen and cortisol are removed. During the following two weeks, you are given different foods under observation. The foods that are not tolerated by your body, are detected this way. A high protein diet with low carbohydrates, aimed to regulate the blood sugar known as ‘Glyci-Mediterranean’ diet is given to you.
What is Hormone reset?
“Hormones are chemical messengers that are secreted directly into the blood, which carries them to organs and tissues of the body to exert their functions.”
A hormone imbalance in the body can cause a lot of trouble in the working of the body and the mind. The major cause of a hormonal imbalance is stress and impurities or toxins in the body. You might wonder that even after following a diet regime and working out you are unable to shed weight. The reason behind this is the hormonal imbalance.
Now to counter the hormonal imbalance the hormones that are in excess need to be flushed and the ones, which are lower, need to be brought to optimum levels. Dr. Turner has come up with the Hormone reset diet to bring back the hormones in your body to normal levels.
