In the beginning was conception and then ‘voila’ us. Let’s face it, we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for hormones. It is the hormones that rule all systems of the body, not just the reproduction system. There is the thyroid, pancreas, adrenals and many more.

So what happens when we disrupt the hormones? We disrupt the optimal functioning of the body. When that happens there are some major issues and heaps of minor issues. Major ones include infertility, (flourishing IVF industry) diabetes, hyper or hypo thyroid activity, polycystic ovaries, endometriosis, weight gain, tiredness, anxiety, depression etc. the list goes on and on.

Minor ones are hair loss, dry skin, chronic fatigue, PMT, mood swings, irritability, headaches and lack of focus

These are just to name a few – there are heaps more.

So now I ask – what causes the disruption of hormones? What is changing the molecular structure and displacing the hormones?

CHEMICALS and our over use of them can be blamed for most – not only in and on what we eat but also what we use daily in the bathroom. Had that occurred to you? The sodium laurel sulphate (SLS) in the toothpaste, soaps, shampoo, bubble bath and baby products.

Did you know that SLS accumulates in your organs, is a skin and eye irritant and may be linked to cancer? We are so paranoid about cleanliness nowadays so we use heaps of disinfectants and hand washes – most contain triclosan which also accumulates in your organs, is a skin and eye irritant and may be linked to cancer.

Saccharin in toothpaste? An artificial sweetener – linked to cancer. There are so many used in our personal care – which are mainly used on the skin and easily absorbed. Please note the size of a baby or child compared to adults – so greater effect on them than us.

Have you ever wondered why we have so many health problems today – weight issues, mental health, allergies and food intolerances?

The endocrine society suggests these issues may be transmitted to further generations. That is horrifying. Let’s start on prevention instead of after the event and then spending heaps of time, money and emotion to overcome sickness?

It is so easy to change brands and avoid these harmful ingredients so please connect with me and I can send you details of how.
