NHT & FOOD SENSITIVITIES We often think we’re past developing allergies or food sensitivities. Women notice food sensitivities before men, especially after having kids. As we age, our hormones change and fluctuate. It could be from changes like PCOS, PMS, peri-menopause, menopause or post-menopause. Food sensitivities often start with changes in your hormones. Many women might develop new sensitivities or have heightened sensitivity to certain foods. As you go through menopause, your pre-existing food sensitivities might become worse. Food Sensitivity Diagnosis If you’ve recently noticed a food sensitivity, you understand it can be scary. One of your favorite foods might be causing you pain. It takes a lot of time and effort to rearrange your life to make a new diet.

The most common symptoms of a food sensitivity are:

  • headaches, including migraines
  • feelings of fatigue and/or sluggishness
  • low energy
  • brain fog
  • memory issues
  • skin problems, like eczema
  • bloating
  • sadness/depression
  • constipation and/or diarrhea
  • bowel irritation
  • weight gain
  • indigestion
  • fluid retention
  • moderate to severe period cramps
  • irritability
  • anxiety
  • sleep, like awake at odd hours or can't sleep good
These symptoms can be hard to handle on top of changes to your hormones. (Like sudden weight gain or hot flashes.)  Usually food sensitivity causes are the same as hormone changes, so the treatments can be too! Benefits of Natural Hormone Therapy (NHT) Many people try drastic diets or over-the-counter medications. These types of things can only treat your symptoms, not help solve the actual problem.
