The Hormone Reset Diet

ms-diet-respect-hormones-575x262

Endocrine disruptors are found in so many products–not only in the actual products but in the packaging as well.

They have a huge range of negative effects on hormones.  They can increase or decrease hormone production, imitate hormones, and actually turn one hormone into another.  Exposures can lead to serious health benefits ranging from thyroid dysfunction all the way to autism or ADHD.

Here is a quick cheat sheet on what to avoid when looking for safe products:

Soap–triclosan and triclocarban

Sunscreen–SPF>50, retinyl palmitate, oxybenzone and added insect repellant

Toothpaste- triclosan

Nail Polish-formaldehyde,tolulene and dibutyl phthalate

The Environmental Working Group has a great website where you can check the safety of your own products and cosmetics called SKIN DEEP.

Balancing hormones is one of the most essential things for achieving good health and weight loss.  I loved Dr. Sara Gottfried’s first book The Hormone Cure because of all the questionnaires  to help each individual reader determine what their actual issue was and then provided some specific holistic options in effort to correct the imbalances.

She now has a new book out called The Hormone Reset Diet that I have just ordered.  So stay tuned and I’ll let you know what I think of it.
