There are plenty of blogs, magazine articles and adverts telling us how to get ready for our much-anticipated summer holidays (who can forget last summer’s uproar over the Protein World advert that was plastered all over the London Underground asking women if they were “beach body ready”?)
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.
