In a pot, sautee the garlic and diced tomato in olive oil.

Are you suffering from endometriosis, fibroids, PMS, menopause or PCOS? Of late, a good majority of the female patients walking through my doors tend to be coming in with a chief concern related to female hormonal health. As hormones play a critical role in female health and vitality, ensuring the proper balance of the female hormones (namely estrogen and progesterone), is the key to alleviating the symptoms of the aforementioned conditions. A number of factors can affect the levels of these hormones, including: diet, lifestyle and stress to name a few.

Many female hormonal conditions can be attributed to an excess of estrogen, coined estrogen dominance. As the liver is the main organ responsible for clearing excess hormones from the system, it only makes good sense to address the function of this organ. In addition to supplementary support, I always also recommend the addition of liver loving foods into the diet such as: lemons, garlic, onions, beets, artichoke, kale, cauliflower, broccoli, brussels sprouts and cabbage. So love your liver! And you will undoubtedly see the benefits of treating it kindly!
