harmonize your hormones for your health, happiness and weight-loss goals


Why is it that you can’t walk past a cupcake without gaining 3 pounds just from the thought of eating it?

What’s happened to your soft skin, full head of hair, flat belly and calm disposition?

How do you quell your fear of cancer and temper the tenderness you feel in your breasts or ovaries?

I’m Andrea Nakayama, a functional nutritionist, and I’d like to help you understand the fine web of hormones that rule your body and your mind so that YOU can sit in the driver’s seat.

While your hormones are fluctuating at obvious times like puberty, perimenopause and menopause, your hormones are delicately balanced at every stage of life. Your lifestyle, the foods you consume, the water you drink and your resilience to life’s stressors (big and small) all take a toll on that delicate balance. And it’s happening right within your body. Right now.


In EstroZen you’ll learn how to…

  • tackle chronic weight concerns
  • rediscover your sex drive
  • decrease your risk of breast and ovarian cancer
  • reduce your vulnerability to diabetes & metabolic disorders
  • support your bone health
  • and enhance your mood & memory

Learn key information for your health while eating great food and living the best life possible to support not only your own wellness and aging, but that of your entire family.

You CAN restore hormone balance. At any stage of life.

Hormone balance doesn't happen overnight.

You can't achieve it with a pill.

Yet hormones matter. And you have to take these matters into your own hands.

In EstroZen you’ll master which foods, supplements, herbs and lifestyle practices will allow you to be back in control.

  • We’ll tackle your diet in the most gentle, nutritious and delicious ways.
  • We’ll look at your home and where you can better protect yourself against the hormone disruptors that might be right under your very lips.
  • We’ll examine your body’s thermostat and guardian angel so that you can engage in practices that best support your hormonal equilibrium.
  • And you’ll have community and support in the true-to-form Replenish style to help you understand and transform your habits in ways that will last a lifetime and impress and influence those around you!

Get ready to confront the root of what ails you from anxiety to acne to endometriosis.

Telltale signs and symptoms of hormone imbalance include:

  • irritability
  • resistant weight loss
  • migraines
  • skin issues
  • decreased sex drive
  • osteoporosis
  • polycystic ovaries
  • cramps
  • breast tenderness
  • food cravings
  • foggy thinking
  • infertility
  • blood sugar issues
  • breast, ovarian and uterine cancers
  • bloating
  • mood swings
  • muscle & joint pains
  • irregular periods
  • insomnia
  • insulin resistance

Your EstroZen protocol will amplify your body’s capacity to eliminate the harmful hormones & illuminate your body’s powers to enhance the helpful hormones.

You’ll receive a mission and food rules for each week, with menu plans, recipes and food suggestions to choose from. (Yes, there will be plenty of great food to eat!)

Detox Overview:

Week #1: We’ll gently move into our protocol, removing the major inflammatory foods and starting to balance blood sugar, the foundation of hormone balance!

Week #2: We’ll heighten our efforts, working on your body’s hormonal thermostat and guardian angel, ensuring that your physiology is working for you, not against you.

I have been looking for answers and help for the past 4 years and this detox has made the biggest difference in my life.

Thank you so much for imparting this information and for all your support. I look and feel like a new person! I have been looking for answers and help for the past 4 years and this detox has made the biggest difference in my life. I am afraid to make any changes to my diet as I feel so good and truthfully do not miss any of the foods we eliminated. I am looking forward to doing many more classes and cleanses with you in the future. You are amazing!
—Cheri

This is the first detox I’ve ever done that I’ve been able to follow exactly. And it’s paying off!

I started the detox a day late (on Tuesday) because I was traveling. I weighed myself today and I’d lost 4 lbs! Also, I’m feeling great. This is the first detox I’ve ever done (and I’ve done many but not with Andrea) that I’ve been able to follow it exactly. And it’s paying off. I’m so excited. I’m prone to bloating and stomach upset and I have none of it now. Woo-hoo!
-Mary

I am thrilled to report that I now see a noticeable difference in my belly size. Hurray!!

I just wanted to say that I am feeling good and have dropped 3 lbs! The biggest difference I have noticed is the change in belly size. It has only been the last year that I have seen a dramatic change in belly fat and bloating. I would stand sideways in front of my bathroom mirror every night before bed and cry because I seriously looked 6 months pregnant! No exaggeration here! But I am thrilled to report that I now see a noticeable difference in my belly size. Hurray!!
This has been a remarkable course so far! I am learning so much and integrating information that I have learned over the years but never fully understood. Everything you do at Replenish is so cutting edge and first class all the way. Andrea, your wisdom amazes me and the team you have assembled to support your work is so apparent in every component of this course. Kudos to everyone . . . what you do is life changing and that must feel pretty darn good!
-Diane

I have more energy. I feel clearer, more present. This alone is worth its weight in gold.

I woke up this morning and realized I actually WOKE up, not fuzzy and still half-asleep. I have more energy. I feel clearer, more present. This alone is worth its weight in gold. My fuzzy forgetfulness is legendary at this point in our family. They might have to get acquainted with a whole new Mom!
-Kathryn

I was suddenly aware of a more noticeable shift in the way I look and feel. The abdominal “roll” has definitely receded, and that is HUGE for me.

I was suddenly aware of a more noticeable shift in the way I look and feel. The abdominal “roll” has definitely receded, and that is HUGE for me. I’m on the petite side, and couldn’t figure out for the longest time what was going on and why I seemed to be gaining weight in my abdomen, when I used to be more trim. So, I absolutely get, now, that hormones & blood sugar were the likely culprits! I want to thank you for this amazing opportunity to address our hormone health. The content of the entire program was just excellent!!
-Karen

I’m extremely proud of myself. I stuck with it throughout the three weeks, even when I went away for one weekend. (Those incredible recipes made it so easy). and I’m feeling GREAT!

Results from the detox: First, I’m extremely proud of myself. I stuck with it throughout the three weeks, even when I went away for one weekend. (Those incredible recipes made it so easy). Second, I lost 7.4 lbs! Woohoo! I had gained 10 lbs. when we left Colorado for Oregon and now I only have three lbs. to get off to get back to where I was before. Third, I’m feeling GREAT! I just had an incredibly hard hour long workout at the gym with my personal trainer and I made it through with energy to spare. This is a lot since I am 63 years old and have been diagnosed with lupus (in remission since changing my lifestyle and diet). Andrea, thank you SO much for this incredible experience.

estrogen dominance

Who suffers from estrogen dominance and is this something I need to be concerned about? How about my partner?

Sadly, most everyone of us suffers from estrogen dominance these days!

Our exposure to environmental estrogens is tipping the scale in your bathroom and in your internal chemistry. Estrogen dominance is prevalent in women and men alike, in our girls and even in our boys. Get this: Over 70,000 registered chemicals in the US have hormonal and toxic effects that are difficult for your body to detoxify.

These include:

  • pesticides
  • herbicides
  • insecticides
  • fungicides
  • industrial chemicals (like lead, mercury and PCBs)
  • plastics (particularly BPA)
  • dairy products from animals fed chemical growth hormones
  • flouride
  • skin, hair and cleaning products that contain estrogenic chemical compounds

I know. It can be overwhelming to think about. And these substances can be overwhelming your body, leaving you in a state of overwhelm and despair.

In Estrozen, we'll explore what these environmental estrogens are and what you can do about them to help bring you the balance and ease you crave.


snacks for protein, fat & fiber

In the Tipping the Scales Seminar you mention snacks with Fat, Fiber & Protein for maintaining blood sugar as an important baseline for hormonal balance. I am wondering if you have some suggestions for snacks like this. And, what if you are on the go?

This is a great question. I definitely encourage people to travel around with things on hand so they don’t get caught in a pinch, with their blood sugars down. This is going to lead to the kind of desperate spontaneity that rarely serves our goals. (Low blood sugar = grabbing whatever is convenient.)

Two suggestions are making miso soup and our Flax Max bar, which can be prepared in advance. Thermoses are great and the bars hold up well in a wax bag or small container (especially as the weather cools ~ your good fats won’t melt as easily!).

I also advise people to carry nuts, seeds or some kind of healthy bar option to help keep even and balanced.


tips for belly weight

Do you have any other tips about helping women who have belly weight and are around menopausal age?

Absolutely! This is one of the things we’ll be diving into in the EstroZen Detox.

Sometimes the weight falls off during the detoxes and other times it lingers, here or there. One of those places is right on the belly. Belly fat that won’t budge is a good indicator that there is some hormonal imbalance at play.

It’s important to balance blood sugar. That’s #1. Then we need to support adrenal issues. If you’re living in a state of fight-or-flight, as many of us are, you’re producing excesses of the hormone cortisol. Excess cortisol = belly fat.

But we can't produce excess cortisol forever. We'll run out of steam. What happens then? We produce less than we need. So then we don't just have less fight-or-flight and diminished get-up-and-go, we're stuck with the fatigue and the flab!

But there's another hormonal imbalance that can easily lead to belly fat. That's estrogen dominance. This is a situation that has become epidemic in our society for men, women and children alike. In EstroZen we'll explore How & Why this is happening, as well as WHAT to do about it! That's what EstroZen is all about!

We'll beat the belly fat by cleaning up our diet, our environment and discover what BALANCE really means.


Dietary Questions

Will you provide Gluten Free & Vegan Alternatives?

The entire protocol is Gluten Free. You can rest assured that anything you ever do with me or Replenish PDX is gluten free and sugar free. Our protocol through the weeks removes some other food constituents as well.

There is some other non-dairy animal protein included in the protocol if you want or already eat it. There's only a couple animal protein dishes each week and that way you can eliminate those to suit your dietary needs or restrictions, or include a bit more as your body requires.

And you’ll find plenty of answers in the EstroZen Answer Board to help navigate your unique needs dietary and otherwise.

What if I eat a grain-free diet? Can I do this detox?

As with the animal protein, there is little to no grain on this protocol. Where it is included, it can easily be substituted.

If you always wanted to see what a grain-free diet could do to reduce your inflammation, pain, help with weight loss and mental clarity, then this is a great opportunity for that, among other things. If you're scared of a grain-free diet, don't be! You'll be pleasantly surprised by how good the food is and you'll have so many recipes to carry you forward with a new way of eating beyond the detox ~ no matter how you decide to eat beyond the three weeks.

What are good supplements to take?

We've actually set up a supplement store to help you make the choices that will best benefit your detox experience. The recommended supplements are not required, but instead meant to support your explorations and inquiries should you choose to bring in that additional help for your hormone balancing.

The bottom line? We've got your diet and supplement needs covered!

I'm scared of a detox! I've heard horrible things about detoxes. I've heard about friends doing detoxes and starving or living off of lemon and water drinks. I'm busy and don't have time to slow down or not have enough energy. Can I still balance my hormones without starving myself?

Deep breath. We're going into Zen territory here.

I know many people use the terms detox and cleanse interchangeably. But at Replenish PDX, we've created a distinction between the two. It’s this distinction that will help you to make the appropriate investment of your time and resources to reach your optimal health goals.

In a detox, my goal is to remove the foods and food categories that are muddying the waters. We’re taking out the substances that slow you down, make you sick, clog your sinuses, cause gas and bloating, make you retain unnecessary weight and leave you feeling tired and foggy. Hormonal havoc!

Sometimes the things we’re removing are foods and sometimes they’re more than foods. . . behaviors or beliefs, patterns and habits, environmental toxins, all the things that are holding us back. The protocol all depends on the intent of the detox. Our intent here is hormonal balance and understanding how to achieve that for yourself. We'll be getting into the nitty gritty while nurturing ourselves with delicious foods and grounding practices.

And at Replenish, we never remove without replacing. So you know exactly what to eat and what to do to help you feel great.

What about my man? Is this detox good for men too?

You betcha! We'll be exploring the ways in which men experience estrogen dominance too. Like I said, it's an epidemic and the problems are reverberating throughout your entire household ~ affecting not just you, but your partner and children as well.
