Every day we put chemicals on our skin and face, along with perfume and deodorant. At what cost are we doing this? If we don’t pay attention to the chemicals that are in most of these products, it can disrupt the hormone balance in our bodies and cause us to gain weight and have a hard time losing weight. Also, an accumulation of these chemicals can contribute to diseases like cancer!

What can we do to change this? Watch for these ingredients:

chemical picParabens:  These are used as a preservative in products. They are linked to breast cancer and Belly Fat!

Synthetic Fragrances: Often labeled as “Fragrances.” Sounds harmless, right? The label needs to say: Phthalate Free! Phthalates are a friend to cellulite and body fat. They disrupt your hormones. You can end up moody, with increased food cravings!

Propylene Glycol and others!

As you can see, shampoos, skin creams, make-up, deodorant, and other products we use every day can contribute to unwanted Belly Fat, Cancer and other issues. We can change what we put on our skin and protect ourselves. Just read the label before you buy.

I see it every day with my clients. When they do the saliva testing to find hidden sources of inflammation and what their cortisol and other hormones are doing, we discover at times that their estrogen, progesterone, and testosterone are extremely high — and they aren’t even taking hormones!

That is alarming to me. The risk of cancer and disease is high with hormones being out of control from foods, products, and other avenues.

The Bottom Line: YOU have some control over your path in life. Be proactive and find out what’s happening with your hormones, etc., through saliva testing with me. I can help guide you in a better direction.
