Like so many women, I assumed that PMS was just something I had to live with. But I’ve learned so much since then, and I want to assure you that that isn’t true! There are so many things we can do to regulate hormone function and keep our bodies healthy.
According to ancient literature, women’s hair symbolizes strength, physical attraction, health, femininity, and even social status. Then as now, hair is a symbol of self, and our hairstyles are a powerful form of self-expression.
I see so many patients complaining of multiple symptoms like thinning hair, brittle nails, erupting skin, poor sleep, exhaustion, constipation, sexual or menstrual dysfunction and weight gain. These are all clues that can suggest hormonal imbalance – several different types.
Mammals, birds, many reptiles and most fish all share at least one common activity: sleep. The fact that so many creatures spend time sleeping is a pretty good indication that, like breathing and eating, sleep is essential to sustain life and health.
When patients come to me for help in taking charge of their health, one of the changes I encourage each of them to make is to limit their exposure to toxins – specifically to rid
themselves of as many Endocrine Disruptors (EDs) as possible. But why the fuss over
Endocrine Disruptors? It’s pretty simple: EDs are chemicals that interfere with hormone
signalling and wreak havoc on your entire endocrine system.
