How To Use Bees To Stop Your Hormonal Imbalance – Saturday Strategy
POSTED ON July 1, 2016 BY Drew Canole
Are you getting to that age where you are looking back and wondering if you will ever feel “normal” again?
Wondering if you will ever have the same energy and vigor and “spice” that you had in your more youthful years?
Have you ever considered that the way you feel might be due to HORMONAL IMBALANCE?
According to recent statistics, 80% of women and a large percentage of men suffer from some sort of hormonal issue and/or imbalance! That means in a group with 10 of your friends, 8 of you are suffering from improper hormone function!
See if any of these sound familiar to you…

If you are experiencing any sort of hormonal imbalance – LISTEN UP! You’re going to absolutely LOVE this info I am about to share.
What Are Hormones
Hormones are chemical messengers in your body. They trigger things like growth and development and are also responsible for helping the body reproduce.
When your hormones are out of whack – like when you’re going through menopause or suffering a hormonal imbalance due to illness or exposure to chemicals – you will feel off. You will lose your “umph” and wonder why your zest for life is gone.
Two major hormones that you’re likely familiar with are ESTROGEN and TESTOSTERONE.
These hormones are at the CENTER of your health and wellbeing!
The balance of hormones in your body is intimately connected to the following:
The food you eat
The water you drink
The air you breath
The exercise you get
Your levels of stress
Your quality of sleep
Although our hormones do change as we get older, there are a lot of natural foods and supplements that can help keep them working properly.
The Role Of Bees In Hormone Balance
Bees have been a consistent part of human life for thousands of years. There are around 16,000 species of bees, only seven of which are responsible for creating honey. Mention of honey bees are found in many religious works such as The Talmud, The Bible, The Torah, The Koran, the Scrolls of Orient, the writings of ancient Greece and Rome and The Book of Mormon.
Aboriginal tribes feast on bees and place large value on their pollen and honey.An estimated 40% of the world’s food supply depends on pollination by honey bees!
The western world realized the benefits of bee products when investigating Russian Beekeepers who regularly lived past 100 years of age. These beekeepers ate raw honey, rich in bee pollen every day.
I have a friend who raises his own bees. He has a yard full of beehives and the latest gadgets for harvesting honey. It is pretty awesome!
Bees make one of the best natural sweeteners on the planet: raw honey. Packed with over 5,000 live enzymes, 27 minerals, 22 amino acids, all the B-complex vitamins… honey is considered one of nature’s most valuable foods.
Then there’s bee pollen. Bee pollen contains all 22 elements of the human system plus a truckload of vitamins and minerals.
I’m telling you… these products are the bee’s knees!
And we haven’t even gotten to the star of the show yet.
Royal jelly is a KING of supplements when it comes to your hormones!
Royal Jelly is a milky substance made by worker honeybees that is fed to larvae to help boost their growth. Larva that are fed royal jelly long-term eventually become queen bees. In fact the queen bee’s diet is made up completely of royal jelly! A queen bee lives for FOUR YEARS (compared to the other bees who only live about 40 days) and grows to be 1 ½ times bigger.
You’ll be surprised to hear that royal jelly is comprised of 12% PROTEIN. It also contains all of the B-complex vitamins and small amounts of testosterone.
Royal Jelly may have some significant benefits for your hormones… especially the ones that involve long-term relationships, long nights and other long things. 🙂
In a study, Japanese researchers found that those who ate royal jelly showed improved glucose tolerance and better mental health, as well as accelerated conversion of testosterone. (study)
Another study found that just 25 milligrams a day improved testosterone levels in men by 20%!
Other studies have also shown that it helps the body balance estrogen.
Sprinkle of sea salt and coconut palm sugar on top (once prepared mixture is ready to freeze)
Mix together all ingredients and then pour into ice cube trays. Freeze. Eat one daily.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t see a downside to including this magical elixir into my daily routine. I’ve mixed it with our daily turmeric boost and I’ve mixed it with Organifi for an amazingly soothing face mask. So easy – and edible too!
Give it a try and let me know how it goes! And if you’ve already been using it, I wanna hear your stories in the comments on the blog!
I’ve met a lot of people who are well past their middle years but look and act like they’re still in their 20’s! Some of them simply got to that point where they’d had ENOUGH of getting more tired, more achy, more sick… and they decided to turn their lives around.
One simple change at a time.
They began moving their body. Walking, lifting some weights, maybe playing sports with their kids in the backyard.
Then they started adding a few new foods to their cupboards. Maybe only one new food each shopping trip. Chia seeds, goji berries, turmeric, ginger, organifi green juice powder, royal jelly…
Their shopping cart slowly went from mostly processed foods, grains and dairy to raw fresh fruits and vegetables and organic meats.
All of these were changes that radically affected their hormones in a positive way.
And when your hormones are balanced and happy… so are you!
