I began my quest for happier and healthier hormones years ago – mostly inspired by patients knocking down my door wanting answers. I overhauled almost every corner of being and began encouraging others to do the same, starting by eliminating nasty chemicals in my cleaning products, I ditched plastics where possible, I switched my favourite shampoo for a more hormone loving version (which thankfully I now love!) and my skin care and makeup is for the most part all natural too. It’s fair to say, I was doing a pretty good job at keeping my hormones loving me right. If you’re new to this caper, chemicals found in conventional body products, household cleaning items, food containers and our makeup are all known endocrine disruptors. In other words – these things are having their way with your health.
But I knew there was still more work to be done and so when we moved house early this year, I decided to do my best towards making my bedroom more eco friendly and I began switching out various items that were also adding to this endocrine disrupting chemical pile. Turns out, chemicals are literally everywhere and whilst some of you have messaged me to remind me that everything is made of chemicals, I’m talking about those that are synthetic and toxic, not those found readily in nature; after all nature has it all figured out.
