Oh Yes, it’s your Hormones!
Our response to stress
Level of vital nutrients in the bloodstream: like calcium
Regulation of the activities of the immune system
The toxins mimic hormones, so the cells receptors catch toxins instead of hormones, and they seat there prohibiting the hormones to bind to the cell and do their job.
That is why we put so much emphasis on toxin-reduction.
We can diffuse cleansing essential oils like Lemon, Melaleuca, Also, Eucalyptus Staigeriana, Pine, clove to reduce toxins in the air. Lemon essential oil kills 90% of airborne bacteria after 3 hours of diffusing.
We shared how to enhance our daily creams with essential oils like Frankincense instead of the use of synthetics. It is our largest organ and it is always absorbing contamination. Let’s not add more synthetics in our daily creams, and use essential oils to detox through the skin: Juniper Berry, grapefruit, Lemon, orange, Rosemary.
Cleaning with blends with essential oils instead of chemicals.
The Adrenal glands produce Adrenaline and cortisol as part of the ‘Fight or Flight’ response, this should be short term and they are vital for survival.
Serotonin (famous happy hormone) is 90% made in our guts. Gut sends more information to the brain than the other way around.
Chronic inflammation in the gut => chronic inflammation in the brain.
This means brain fog, lack of memory, autoimmune diseases, and much more.
What brings inflammation?
Poor diets, increased toxins, exposure to chemicals, a lack in physical exercise, lack of sleep. These toxic threats cause our cells to react negatively, and that cellular reaction is inflammation.
Cellular inflammation is a silent killer! Linked to 100s of ailments, illness and diseases.
Try to incorporate an anti-inflammatory diet, reducing dairy, gluten, sugar and processed food as much as you can.
Pre-and-Probiotics to have a healthy gut: prebiotics are food for probiotics, Probiotics are good bacteria. They keep your digestive system healthy by controlling growth of harmful bacteria.
The less inflamed we are => the more serotonin we can produce in our guts => the happier we are.
Over the past decades, there has been an increase in medications for Serotonin and Dopamine imbalances. Yet they have a long list of potential side effects, from dizziness to insomnia. Essential oils such as Bergamot, Lavender, Lemon, Jasmine or Neroli, are particularly therapeutic and by just using our sense of smell, they prompt our body to help release Serotonin and Dopamine. Roller balls on the go, diffusing at home and workspaces boost our Serotonin and Dopamine.
Mixed approach to gym (less frantic exercise, less intense training). Over exercise => exhaustion => hormone imbalanced.
