Holy Hormones Journal: Hello, readers – I am so glad to see you are still here. Sometimes a writer has to take a moment to regroup and rest the brain and the fingers that do all the walking! I anticipated that my blog numbers would be way down in my silence….. however, they held steady over the last week or so – and for that I am truly grateful that you find the information that I blog about to be important to your health. Because it is.
I hear from so many of you who are asking questions about your menstrual health – specifically about hormone imbalance. I posted a blog about hormone imbalance and anxiety a few years back, and then reposted it a couple of years ago – and since then have had over 700 comments. I hesitate to put the link in here but – this important information to know. Here is another blog post on hormone imbalance – a silent epidemic.
Why am I sharing this? Because many of you do not realize that we are all surrounded by what are known as endocrine disruptors that are fueling the fire for hormone imbalance. Most of those endocrine disruptors are known as xenoestrogens found in, household cleaning supplies, makeup and shampoo – sunscreen, laundry dryer sheets. and most importantly plastics. And then add synthetic hormone birth control to that – and we are nothing more than hormone soup.
Hormones are the chemical messengers sent to every cell in the body. If the message is scrambled it ricochets from there.
And now a study has been done…. so typical – first create the problem – then do a study on the problems that the problem created – right? All of that spells profit for the corporations for the rise in medical costs while our health is failing. If we do not protect our health now – the health of our children and their children will be even more at risk. All of these chemicals have been found in the umbilical cord – being pumped right into the fetus. Just like gas into a car.
Anyone use Febreze? That is a very dangerous chemical – sprayed right into the rug to reduce odors where our babies are crawling and playing.

Common chemicals linked to endometriosis, fibroids — and healthcare costs

Hormone-disrupting chemicals are everywhere — in plastics, pesticides and makeup — and two of them, phthalates and DDE, have been particularly strongly linked with common female reproductive conditions, such as fibroids.
