How to BALANCE Hormones Naturally - My Top 10 Food Tips | Kesar Andrews
Do you want to know how to balance your hormones naturally using food?! In this video, I share my top ten food tips to help balance your hormones! When we think about what to eat to nourish our bodies, hormones may not always be top of mind. But our hormones have a profound impact on our mental, physical and emotional health. Which is why when they get out of balance, we know about it. Everything from PMS, heavy periods, hot flushes, night sweats, gynaecological conditions such as PCOS and endometriosis, to fertility and the menopause. Now no one food or a group of foods can take all your symptoms away or fix a hormonal condition - that’s what the doctors are for. BUT - hormones need a steady stream of nutrients for them to be made and work efficiently, nutrients we need to get from the food we eat e.g. zinc and magnesium. And if we can adopt a varied diet, rich in the nutrients which hormones need and love, there is no doubt you will start to feel the benefits and be on the path to hormonal health and freedom!

HEAVY PERIODS 101 | Symptoms, Causes & My Top 6 Tips for Managing Them | Kesar Andrews
Hi guys! My name is Kesar and welcome back to my YouTube channel, where I talk all things hormone and period related. If you are new to my channel, welcome! Make sure you SUBSCRIBE and introduce yourself in the comments box below! Today we are talking all about heavy periods - or menorrhagia as it’s technically known. It shocks and surprises me on a regular basis, when I hear just how many women suffer from heavy periods and excessive blood loss every single month, and believe that it's something they should just accept as part of their monthly menstrual experience - because mostly heavy periods are not normal and not okay - it can be one of the most debilitating symptoms a woman can experience. So I am doing this video for all you women who experience heavy periods or even for women who have friends and family who have heavy periods - to explain how they can be a sign of an underlying issue, to help you to understand the possible causes so you can have a useful and informed conversation with your doctor, and also provide you with tips on how you can naturally support and manage heavy periods alongside a medical treatment plan. This is your first step to recovery - because knowledge about your body, your hormones and your periods is power. Click play to learn more!

How the Birth Control Pill affects your BRAIN and who you are ATTRACTED TO | Kesar Andrews
Hi guys! My name is Kesar and welcome back to my YouTube channel, where I talk all things hormone and period related. This is the second of three videos that I am uploading, discussing the birth control pill. If you have not already seen my first video - The Truth about the Pill - Part 1, then I suggest you do so now. I finished my last video, by telling you that there is research out there that suggests that taking the pill influences your love-and sex-related brain circuitry, indicating that the pill might be able to influence the type of romanic partner you are attracted to. Did you know that the birth control pill has an influence on attraction? Today, I want to delve into this topic further with you guys and share with you, what is in my opinion, some pretty groundbreaking research regarding attraction and the pill! You won’t want to miss out! A lot of the ideas and research I discuss in this video, has been extracted from the amazing book - ‘How the Pill Changes Everything’ - Your Brain on Birth Control, by Dr. Sarah E. Hill, who is an evolutionary social psychologist. It’s a book that has totally changed the way I view the pill, and I definitely recommend you giving this a read. Click play to learn more!

Learn why you get FOOD CRAVINGS before your PERIOD and how to PLAN for & MANAGE them | Kesar Andrews
It’s like clockwork. It’s the week before your period, and all you can think about is food. You’re feeling more hungry than usual, and all you seem to be craving, is chocolate, doughnuts, crisps, ice cream, burgers, fries - I mean I can go on - but basically all the sugar and all the carbs. Sometimes it can be a bit uncontrollable right? But have you ever wondered why? Why do you get these very specific food cravings before your period, and actually why do we feel more hungry than usual in the first place? Any why is it that we have cravings for sugar and carbs, and not an endless amount of apples? Well, watch this video, and I’m going to tell you exactly why? Not only will I tell you why, I will also share with you how you can plan for your food cravings by tracking your menstrual cycle, and share with you tips on how to best manage the cravings.

The BIRTH CONTROL PILL | How it works & how it influences who we are as women | Part 1 - The Basics
This is the first of three videos that I will be uploading, discussing the birth control pill - the tiny little pill that millions of women, across the world, pop into their mouths on a daily basis. Why am I doing videos on the birth control pill? Well how much do you actually know about the pill? Do you know what it does to your body physically? Do you know how it affects your natural hormonal rhythm? And did you know that there is emerging research that shows that the pill can influence who you are as a person - so not just influencing whether or not you can get pregnant, but also affecting areas of the brain that are responsible for things like who you are attracted to, your stress response, your learning memory and emotional processing. Today it's the basics - I’ll talk about what happens to your body and your natural hormonal rhythm when you are on the pill, discuss whether that withdrawal bleed you get every month is actually a real period, and I’ll end the video by starting to explore with you the effect that the pill can have on us more broadly as women - leading very nicely onto my next video, which looks at how the type of man you attracted to changes depending on whether or not your are on the pill.

Learn exactly HOW your HORMONES affect your ENERGY LEVELS over your 28 day cycle | Kesar Andrews
Ladies - want to know exactly at what point in the month, you will have the most energy? How many of you feel so full of energy some days, ready to smash that HIIT session after work, followed by dinner and drinks with your friends afterwards, and then other days you just can’t be bothered, and all you want to do is go home and Netflix and chill. If that sounds like you, experiencing these regular energy fluctuations over the course of the month, then watch this video to learn why. What if I told you, that as a woman, the hormones of the menstrual cycle, which ebb and flow over a 28 day period, profoundly influence our energy, the way we feel, our mood, and behaviour, and that by working with and aligning ourselves with what is happening in our bodies at a hormonal level - we can get our cycle working for us. You’ve all heard about intuitive eating, but let me introduce you to intuitive living - where you are the expert of your body and it’s natural hormonal rhythm. In this video, I tell you exactly when in your cycle you will have high energy and low energy levels. And by the end of this video, you will know how to plan your weeks more efficiently - syncing up high-intensity activities for the days when you have lots of energy, and low intensity activity for the low energy days - giving you total control of your energy and it’s natural fluctuations.
