“No disease that can be treated by diet should be treated with any other means.”
Over my blogging years, I have often mentioned health updates by Dr. David Williams. Especially when he has something of interest for women going through menopause or hormonal transitions.
In this month’s newsletter, Alternatives, Volume 20, No. 1, January 2017, he writes about the benefit of carrots. Yep, the lowly carrot we have come to ignore on the veggie platter. Who knew? (Okay, maybe Bugs Bunny. But he didn’t seem hormonal all that often…or did he?)
Dr. Williams reports that “Carrots have the unique ability to lock on to excess estrogen and xenoestrogens and carry them out of the body. Raw carrots have been shown to improve the progesterone to estrogen ratio and to help promote proper hormone balance. (Many women suffering from premenstrual symptoms such as migraine headaches can find a great deal of relief, if not complete relief, simply by consuming a couple of grated raw carrots each day.)”
I don’t know about you, but I love simplicity. Eating a couple of raw carrots a day—preferably organic and with skin still on—is easy to do. (Carrot skins, although thin, are loaded with phytochemicals.) And, in my experience, carrots are relatively inexpensive. Score!
Dr. Williams goes on to say he has had countless patients with symptoms like constipation, headaches, allergies, bloating, and PMS see dramatic improvement by adding raw carrots to their daily diet.

Perhaps with the addition of a few fresh carrots a day you will have fewer reasons to say, “What’s up doc?”
