An expert’s advice on how to balance your hormones


Dr. Claudia Welch offers her thoughts on how to balance the hormones that influence everything from our moods to our skin.

By Alexandra Spunt for NoMoreDirtyLooks.com

Yep, we’re talking hormones again.

Here’s why: Hormones act upon every single cell in our bodies. For women, their impact is incredibly real. They affect our skin and our moods, whether we fit into our skinny jeans at certain times of the month, and when we need to have a good cry. They are wonderful and awful and mysterious all at the same time, but when they’re out of whack, we suffer in ways that can feel completely maddening.

Has anyone here ever stopped getting their period for seemingly no reason? Suffered from chronic cystic acne, or had the kind of PMS where you just want to cry all the time and can’t get out of bed? Have you been told to go on the pill by a doctor for something other than contraception?

Yes to all for me. Not at once, sure, but I’ve experienced these symptoms to varying degrees at different times of my life. This is why, when I came across Dr. Claudia Welch’s book Balance Your Hormones, Balance Your Life, I felt like—excuse the drama—the clouds had parted. Dr. Welch is an Ayurvedic and Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) practitioner, and she’s one of the few people (Dr. Christiane Northrup, we’re looking at you) who speaks about women’s hormones in a way that really hits home. So it’s with great joy that I share some of her wisdom here on the site.
