Eating for Estrogen Health

Adding more brassicas to your diet is helpful for maintaining healthy estrogen levels in your body. These foods contain a compound named Diiodolylmethane, or DIM, that works to improve healthy estrogen metabolism directly. Furthermore, the cruciferous family of vegetables naturally contains Calcium D-Glucarate, which also directly improves estrogen metabolism and helps to reduce total estrogen levels.
Brassicas includes; cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts, kale, mustard greens, etc.
These foods contain a chemical called indole 3-carbinol (I3C) that decreases production of the C4 and C16 metabolites.
*Note: the indoles are destroyed through cooking, so these foods should be consumed raw or lightly steamed.

Kiki Athanas is the guiding light behind making wellness easy for you. She has built her Mind Body Beauty signature program around helping people overcome their perfectionism around health. She teaches people how to become the loving nutritionist, trainer, therapist and ultimately "life coach" they need to be for themselves - just as she did for herself. After letting her own perfectionistic ways send her into a state of total burn out, orthorexia, and a loss of who she was and what truly made her happy - she decided to “surrender” to self-compassion and subscribe to a method of eating she now teaches as “truthful eating”. Working with multiple brain integration techniques, positive & energy psychology, and practicing at the intersection of neuroscience and law of attraction, she applied specific mindfulness modalities to break emotional eating habits, find the joy in exercise, and ultimately live life in balance and with a strong sense of freedom. Kiki is on a mission to prove that prioritizing your wellness and achieving your optimal health doesn’t need to feel like an unsustainable pursuit of hard work, and that loving your mind, body, and life is your choice - and 100% possible.
