Hormone imbalance & nutrition consulting
Hormone Imbalance: my own story
My name is Timi Frank-Palfi, and I work as a physio and Pilates instructor. When I was diagnosed with insulin resistance (IR) in 2014, I immediately consulted with a dietitian, who prescribed a special diet to be followed. Although this helped me get rid of the extra weight I gained, it didn’t really provide a solution to get my menstrual cycle back on track. I had many questions and doubted many things about whether this diet was right for me at all, and how could I make my full recovery be more effective? My hormone diagnosis results in 2018 weren’t ideal (by far), even though I was fully following the above mentioned diet. This led my endocrinologist to come to the conclusion, that I had early menopause. I refused incretotherapy (targeting my hormones), and went on to find various studies, literature and therapists, that/who could shine some light on the root-cause of my health-problems, and how it could be handled with natural and complementer cures and treatments. This is how I came about finding the plant-based diet school-of-thought, which I adhere to, to this day.
I was always interested in nutritional science, and hence decided to study accredited courses on sports nutrition and vegan/plant-based nutrition in the UK (150+90 hours Vegan nutritionist course, Centre of Excellence, UK; Advanced Sports and Exercise Nutritional Advisor, The Health Sciences Academy, UK), coupled with a hormone-balance course in Hungary. These made me understand ways to tackle my various symptoms, all caused by IR, and finally, I could effectively help normalise my menstrual cycle. The result of my latest glucose tolerance test is also the best in the last 6 years.
I haven’t stopped learning about this topic, and continuously search for and gather new materials, attend courses and read relevant literature – so I can help myself and YOU! 🙂
The benefits of plant-based diet for women
Every day more and more people realise that meat-based (predan) diets have all sorts of unwanted side-effects, negatively impacting our body and health. Such side effects can be: hypothyrosis, thyroid hyperfunction, insulin resistance, diebetes, hormone imbalance issues, signs of early menopause, early climax are all to do with nutrients missing (or being in excess) in our body. If you want to retain your health as a woman (and all that come with this state of being visible on the outside and felt inside), then it is worth focusing on what you feed yourself daily.
I managed to put all my growing knowledge on and experience in these topics into a structured format, and can help others in the same boat to tackle their health-related issues effectively, in the form of consultations (which include written, tailor-made advices as well). I put together those materials and information that can be of help to ‘beginner’ level IR-patients: what are the various dietary supplements and what sort of diet will you need to keep to effectively fight insulin resistance, get your hormonal imbalance back to normal, avoid early menopause and early climax and be healthy inside and outside, as much as possible.
