Study: Hormone Damage in Uterus Linked to Anxiety

fetusHoly Hormones Journal: Here it is folks. Experts at Cambridge and Cardiff Universities have found that hormone damage can cause an imbalance in nutrient supply affecting the mental health of our newborn children. And if not corrected early – that child’s mental health will decline as they age.  Is it no wonder that so many of our children are now experiencing,  ADHD, autistic symptoms, depression and anxiety? The sad thing is that they are being put on so many psychotropic drugs that mask the symptoms instead of getting the nutrition they need to start healing their neuro-endocrine-immune system.  These are the topics we will be covering on my new radio show “Holy Hormones Honey!” on the VoiceAmerica Talk Radio Network.

Hormone imbalance – is from synthetic hormones and all of the estrogen mimickers in our environment.  I have blogged about this many times.  Common sense dictates that if a woman is just coming off of birth control and gets pregnant.. there are going to be problems going into the pregnancy. There are many who feel that women need to be off of their birth control for at least 6 months before getting pregnant.

And if a woman experiences postpartum depression (also called postpartum psychosis) post pregnancy – you can bet that infant was exposed to hormone imbalance in utero.

Either way, we are at a new crossroads: nutrate or medicate.  The future health of our children is at stake. Kind of makes you look at these kids who committed mass murders in a different light. At least it does for me.  Nutrient deficiency, hormone imbalance and psychotropic cocktails is a bad mix in my book.

Anxiety in adults could be triggered by hormone imbalance in womb

Anxious adults could have been short on particular hormones in the womb, research suggests.

mouseExperts at Cambridge and Cardiff universities have linked in mice a hormonal imbalance in the placenta to anxiety and potential vulnerability to poor mental health further down the line.

To investigate how a discrepancy in the supply and demand of certain nutrients could hit people, Cambridge University’s Dr Miguel Constancia and Cardiff’s Prof Lawrence Wilkinson, Dr Trevor Humby and Mikael Mikaelsson looked at the behaviour of adult mice with a malfunctioned supply of the Insulin-like growth factor-2 hormone.

Dr Humby said mice were more anxious as adults where hormone damage had caused an imbalance in nutrient supply.
