How to Spot Hormone Imbalances and Reclaim Balance with Healthy Foods

A plate of healthy foods is displayed, demonstrating balancing hormones through nutrition.

Hormones are the body’s chemical messengers, which coordinate various functions through signals communicated through the blood. 

Even a slight hormonal imbalance can create significant changes in the body, resulting in various symptoms and health conditions. Moreover, your diet can have a significant impact on hormonal balance. Whether it may be beneficial or harmful depends on what you’re putting in your body.

Fortunately, there are some natural and holistic ways to balance your hormones and take back control of your life. One of the most powerful ways to balance the chemicals in your body is through nutrition!

Spotting Hormonal Imbalance Symptoms

Noticing hormonal imbalances in the body may be easier for some individuals than others. First off — what is a hormonal imbalance?

This term refers to the scenario where you have too little or too much of one particular hormone in your system. When off-balance, these chemicals impact sleep, digestion, reproduction, metabolism, and many more.

Hormonal imbalances can be triggered by lifestyle changes (stress), certain medications, autoimmune conditions, injuries, and more. Many individuals can pick up when something is off in their body based on something that happens in their life that may cause internal disruption.

The human body usually shows signs that something is off with your hormones by displaying symptoms, including the following:

  • Fatigue
  • Slow or rapid heartbeat
  • Anxiety or depression
  • Hair loss
  • Acne
  • Low libido
  • Hot flashes 
  • Numbness in the hands
  • Sudden change in weight 

If you notice any sudden changes in your body, it’s best to consult a healthcare professional to get to the root of the problem. They may be able to provide you with a diagnosis and a treatment plan based on your health history.

How to Balance Hormones with Food

Dietary patterns and specific nutrients, like fiber and protein, can help naturally balance the hormones in your body. In fact, many hormonal imbalances can be improved with special care around our overall nutrition and diet.

At Z.E.N. Foods, we believe food is medicine and extremely valuable in your overall health and wellness. From skin health to mood-boosting and hormone balances, a well-balanced diet can significantly improve how you feel daily.


Protein is made up of amino acids, which are the foundation of many hormones in the human body. It aids in the production of estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone. 

When you eat protein, it slows the absorption of sugar in the bloodstream. This helps to balance the body’s blood sugar levels and avoid spikes (often leading to hormonal imbalances). Clean protein sources, including poultry, turkey, and fish, are highly effective at helping to balance the body’s hormones. 


Not only do vegetables reduce inflammation, but they are also powerful hormone detoxifiers! Add veggies like bok choy, broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, and Brussels sprouts to your meals to balance your system, detoxify the body, and provide a hearty boost of vitamins and minerals.


Fiber helps to regulate estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone levels in the body, making it essential for your body’s overall balance of hormones. Add more whole grains, like brown rice, quinoa, oats, nuts, beans, and seeds, to your diet to help naturally balance your hormones.
