Many of the products we use are terrible for our hormonal health, so why not use this Christmas as the perfect excuse to make the first steps towards using more hormone-friendly products?
I’ve always been a fan of organic and always try to eat as much of it as possible, I also recommend it to patients, especially women with hormonal imbalances. Why? Well, the pesticides and other chemicals found in conventionally farmed foods are believed to act as hormone disrupters and have been shown to cause havoc by confusing the body’s own signalling system (i.e hormones). It doesn’t take a genius to work out that if you’re already having problems with your hormones the last thing your need is to throw in a big load of chemicals to confuse matters even further.
