96. Balance Your Hormones and Diet + Master Your Minerals with Amanda Montalvo

Healing Hormones

Today, we’re welcoming back registered dietitian Amanda Montalvo! We’ve been working together for a while now – from when she helped me on my own hormonal journey, to various collaborations, and even just sharing resources. She helps women get to the root of their hormone imbalances so they can have healthy menstrual cycles. She started her nutritional education following the traditional route, but after dealing with her own health problems when getting off of hormonal birth control, she quickly realized the value of functional medicine. After healing her acne, balancing her hormones, and learning the value of the menstrual cycle, she found her purpose in helping women create a balanced body without settling for anything less. We talk about the importance of minerals and supplementation for our anatomy, how to get started with a balanced diet, and sifting through all of the information available out there to find what works for you.We Chat About:Understanding the audience when reading information onlineNavigating the research availableExperimenting with supplementsSaturated fat: good or bad?How to get more plants in your dietWhere to get started with a balanced dietResources:Learn more: hormonehealingrd.comListen: Are You Menstrual?Instagram: @hormonehealingrdJoin Master Your Minerals and use the code “NOURISHED” by 9/20/2021 for $20 offNutrient Deficiencies, Supplementing + Testing | with Amanda Montalvo“DUTCH, HTMA, and GI MAP: The Tests You Can Do to Optimize Your Fertility | with Amanda Montalvo”Connect With Me:FREE WORKBOOK - Learn how to support the four phases of your cycle!Private Hormone and FAM CoachingBook a Reiki SessionLet’s be friends on Instagram: @nourishedwithninaHealing Hormones is a production of Crate Media

Master Your Minerals with Amanda Montalvo, RD

The Fed and Fearless Podcast

Are you getting the right minerals? It’s common knowledge that minerals are an important part of a healthy diet. What isn’t as well known is how they affect hormonal health. Today’s guest is a wealth of information about the role of proper mineral balances and your health. About Amanda Montalvo, RD Amanda Montalvo is a women’s health dietitian that helps women get to the root cause of hormone imbalances and have healthy menstrual cycles. Amanda started off her education in nutrition with the traditional route, but after dealing with her own health problems after getting off hormonal birth control she quickly realized the value of functional medicine. After healing her acne, balancing her hormones, and learning the value of her menstrual cycle, Amanda found her purpose to help women create a body in balance and not settle for anything less.   The Importance of Minerals and How to Test for Them In this episode, Amanda goes into depth on just how important your mineral levels are. There are also many things that can disrupt them, including common forms of birth control. But before you can properly treat a hormone deficiency, you need information. To that end, Amanda discusses testing, particularly hair mineral testing, and how it can give you and your practitioner a window into your health. If you find that you have period-related symptoms or a history of thyroid issues, a hair mineral test will likely be very informative. Often, modern diets lead to unnecessary confusion. For instance, many women are often told to consume more iron. Amanda explains why this is not good advice because our bodies actually recycle iron. What we need are the minerals and vitamins that help our bodies with this process. Focus on Food, Not Supplements While many people turn to supplements to get their minerals, Amanda would rather you focus on what you’re eating. Taking supplements often leads to further imbalance. But when you and your practitioner focus on eating a properly balanced diet, you’ll get a well-rounded dose of what you need. What would you like to know about the minerals in your diet?

Why do you have that hormone result?”  [14:14] “I think that you can build your own and have a more balanced approach that’s not going to create more imbalances in your body, and you’ll actually absorb it.” [30:13] Review Fed and Fearless on Apple Podcasts!

Happy as a Mother

When we hear the word hormone, we tend to think of estrogen and progesterone. Actually, there are many other hormones that each have a unique role to play. Stress, medication, supplements, the food we eat, and how our body reacts all have an effect on our hormones. In this episode, Amanda and I talk about the role hormones play in our body, how hormones are affected postpartum, and some basic ways to implement a good foundation for hormone balance.
