Step 3 – Balancing Hormones

Everything we do affects our hormones, which in turn, affects everything we do.

– Rob Sulaver

Hormone balancing is the third step in the Section 89 program. Hormones are released in response to stress. Stress usually worsens health conditions. Ongoing stress dysregulates a tightly regulated network of hormones. For most, this ongoing stress and inflammatory response comes from the wrong diet and poor digestion. Research has correlated stress and hormone dysregulation directly and indirectly to obesity, heart disease, diabetes, depression, infertility, cancer, and others.

The challenge is to avoid the dangerous side effects that come with hormone replacement therapy (HRT) including: Urinary incontinence, dementia, stroke, blood clots, heart attack, breast cancer, lung cancer, and colorectal cancer.

A Salivary Hormone Test (SHT) is an easy and noninvasive way to measure hormone balance. The test measures estrogen, progesterone, testosterone, cortisol, and DHEA. Results are ready in 7-14 days.

After you have completed the Comprehensive Cleanse and Healing Digestion, Balancing Hormones is framed around three steps.

  1. Ketogenic Diet Patients that control insulin thru a ketogenic diet have just created the foundation and have taken a huge variable out of the equation.
  2. Supplementation When and ONLY when a solid foundation is created with diet, supporting normal physiology with key nutrients, herbs, and botanicals is an important part of the process.
  3. Environmental Triggers A long list of Hormone Disruptive Environmental Pollutants and where to find them is provided to eliminate obstacles.

If you chose the Digestive Bronze or Silver, and have not taken the Salivary Hormone Test, place your order for that in the Products page. Results take 10-14 days. To learn more, you can find the Salivary Hormone Test by going to the Learning Center, under Hormones.

Note: Unlike the Cleanse and Digestion, you only have one choice when it comes to Hormone Balancing. There is no “do it yourself” program. And there are no tests to order in anticipation of the next step. There is only Hormones Silver.
