Balancing hormones naturally

An essential step in balancing female hormones is avoiding exposure to xenoestrogens.  Xenoestrogens are oestrogen-like chemicals found in plastics, some chemicals and pesticides and have an effect on hormonal balance.  In the wild this has been clearly demonstrated with some fish, for example, now growing both male and female sex organs.  A number of steps can be taken to avoid additional exposure to xenoestrogens, and a detox programme can help to eliminate those already stored in the body that may be contributing to your health problems (e.g. PMS, endometriosis, fibroids). 

To avoid exposure to xenoestrogens try to:

1. Eat organic food wherever possible to avoid consuming pesticides

2. Avoid heating food in plastic containers

3. Avoid storing food wrapped in plastic, especially fatty food such as cheese, meat or oily fish

4. Use natural organic skincare products

5. Use natural cleaning products

It’s also important to make sure have enough fibre in your diet and cruciferous vegetables, such as broccoli and cabbage to help eliminate xenoestrogens.
