Regaining Hormone Balance

Avoiding Further Health Issues

Menstrual cycle issues, PCOS, ovarian cyst, and even breast cancer can all stem from hormone disruptions. Certain times of developmental growth, even within the womb, can be interrupted by specific chemicals that affect our growth and causes certain diseases. Studies have shown over 300 million dollars are spent annually on hormonal issues within our country. Some of the disrupters are due to personal choices, but also products we consume that contain toxic chemicals ultimately manipulating our health.

Taking Charge of Hormonal Issues

When your hormones are imbalanced, everything is affected. Not only do you experience health side effects, but it can also alter your mood and even personality. The range of issues vary; they can be as low as irritability and as high as cancer or autoimmune diseases. These six tips are simple changes you can make for you and your family today. Regardless of where your hormone levels are, you can change them drastically. Connect with a natural health doctor who will assist and guide you through making these changes. Taking one step at a time will begin to transform the performance of everyday living. Your body is worth investing in through time, products, foods, and knowledge.

Top 6 Hormonal Disrupters

1. Plastics (BPAs)

These act like hormones within our body. Eliminate containers made of plastic for food, drinks, toys, and more. Avoid buying plastic products such as baby bottles and pacifiers. BPA free is a better alternative, but there are more chemicals within the plastic that are harmful. Going on the Body Ecology Diet or Plant Paradox Diet will not only eliminate antibiotic foods in your diet, but also heal the microbiome and digest food easier within your gut.

2. Phthalates

These are found in clothing, cleaning products, beauty products, fragrances, and more. Phthalates are highly toxic to the body. Switch your products to 100% organic to avoid using these toxins.

3. Triclosan

This is found in “antibacterial” products. It can be put in anything from soaps, cosmetics, and even toothpaste. It is marketed to prevent bacteria from entering the body. However, when you constantly kill off bacteria it also kills off good bacteria found within the body. This is harmful considering up to 90% of your immune system is bacteria.

4. Birth Control

You are affecting your endocrine system at a synthetic level, which disrupts your body’s ability to balance its own hormones naturally. Long term effects can be infertility, depression, cervical cancer and more. Birth control ultimately lowers hormones and increases health issues. Birth control does not solve health issues; it only acts as a temporary band-aid with additional side effects.

5. Health and Beauty Products

A simple change for these products is to make sure they are organic. Avoid products with long lists of ingredients. With these products, less is more. You want a high-quality product that is not going to affect your hormonal health if you come in contact with it, especially when you are putting it directly on your body.

6. Diet

This is the most important and most impactful way to allow your body to produce balanced hormones. Simple diet tips are to remove refined sugars, soy products, grains, GMO products, and antibiotic dairy products. Grow your own fruits and vegetables or find a close-to-home organic farmer for the best source of food.
