What Could Possibly Interfere With My Progesterone ?

Currently in the US there are more than 100,000 petroleum derived chemicals in the cosmetic industry alone called petro-chemicals and their use has been on the increase since the 1960’s!

  1. The average woman applies over 300 chemicals daily. Soaps, makeup, shampoos, and hair or body care products. Plugins are the Worst.
  2. 26 seconds after exposure, these chemicals are found in measurable amounts inside your body.
  3. Many meat & dairy products are often grown with the use of synthetic estrogens for profit.
  4. Most pesticides on your fruit and veggies are also from petroleum-derived chemicals.

What effect do EDC’s have on your Hormones? The prevalence of these chemicals have been shown to disrupt your endocrine system and are a primary reason women (and men) are not making & utilizing sufficient natural hormones.

There Are No EDC’s in My Home, or Are There…?
