S E L F C A R E Monday: balance hormones naturally to eliminate toxins
I will be the first to admit, for so long I thought eliminating toxins and natural living was just another fad. It wasn’t until I started researching the scary effects of toxins in our day to day life, that I became fully convicted. After seeing the amazing effects this lifestyle change had on my hormones, energy and skin health, I became passionate about the links between our hormones and the products we use each day!
So why should you start eliminating toxins? Well, as women our hormones play a big role in our physical and emotional health.
Here’s the deal—hormones desperately want to work effectively for you and do the jobs they were designed to do! Sadly a lot can get in the way of that and cause hormone imbalances, which if you have ever been on the other side of cramping, acne, weight gain or adrenal fatigue you know these situations are so not fun and often very emotionally draining as well.
Good news—you can learn how to balance hormones naturally, and a huge part of that is eliminating toxins!
Endocrine disruptors (man-made chemicals) interfere with the body’s endocrine system and produce adverse effects concerning development, reproduction, brain health, the immune system and more.
The scary part about endocrine disruptors is that they can mimic the body’s naturally occurring hormones, in particular the sex and thyroid hormones, and produce an over or under stimulation of your body’s natural hormones. In simple speak, endocrine disruptors confuse your hormones ALOT and can lead to many of the negative symptoms associated with hormones.
Endocrine disruptors can be found in many everyday products, including plastic bottles, soy, laundry soap, bedding, ’s toys, but are especially concentrated in our beauty and skincare products.
