Hidden endocrine disruptors imbalancing your hormones

In today's world, women face numerous health challenges, many of which are exacerbated by exposure to endocrine disruptors. These chemicals, found in everyday products, can interfere with the body's hormone systems, leading to a range of health issues including menstrual irregularities, fertility problems, and other hormonal imbalances.


As an Ayurvedic consultant specialising in women's health, I want to highlight the importance of avoiding these harmful substances and introduce you to a holistic approach to healing your hormones from the inside out with our ShaktiFlow program.



The Impact of Endocrine Disruptors

These substances can mimic or interfere with the function of hormones in the body, leading to a range of health problems such as:

  • Irregular menstrual cycles

  • Reduced fertility

  • Increased risk of hormone-related cancers

  • Weight gain and metabolic issues

  • Skin problems

  • Mood swings and mental health issues


Non-organic foods

Non-organic foods often contain pesticides and fertilizers that can act as endocrine disruptors. Here are some specific examples of such chemicals found in non-organic food:

Pesticides:

  • Organophosphates (e.g., chlorpyrifos): Commonly used in agriculture, these can disrupt hormone function.

  • Carbamates: Another group of pesticides that can affect the endocrine system.

  • Pyrethroids: Synthetic chemicals similar to natural pyrethrins, used in insecticides.

  • Organochlorines (e.g., DDT): Though banned in many countries, residues can still be found in the environment and imported foods.

  • Glyphosate: Widely used herbicide that has been linked to endocrine disruption. Fertilizers:

  • Nitrates: High levels in fertilizers can lead to contamination of drinking water, which can disrupt thyroid function.

  • Heavy Metals: Contaminants like cadmium and lead in fertilizers can interfere with hormone function.
