5 unlikely things giving you too much estrogen....

5 unlikely things giving you too much estrogen....

Estrogen and hormones in general need a very specific ratio in our bodies to function properly. Too much can be bad for your system and too little can also be bad.

After my second daughter was born we were told she was getting too much estrogen, and she was exclusively breastfeeding at the time, so I knew I also had too much estrogen in my system. The doctor told us to cut out…

Soy
Ti Tree Oil (Melaleuca)
Lavender

I was shocked, I had never heard this before!! We didn’t eat soy, but NEARLY ALL my natural body products had ti tree oil and lavender in them. So I replaced most of them, her issue went away, but it really got me thinking.

Then I ran into another friend who mentioned that her SON had similar symptoms and the doctor told them to cut out…

PLASTIC- especially single use plastic

This totally shocked me, so I did more research and found out that also…

TEFLAN

So all these major things in our everyday lives can give us too much estrogen and give you a whole host of symptoms, including anxiety and depression. This is just another reason that our family has decided to cut out plastic from our home. It is a slow process to eliminate it, but we are on a journey. My husband is especially passionate about not wanting too much estrogen effecting him (understandably so). He already has a house full of women.

We are on a plastic-free zero waste journey for so many reasons.
