I've spent months deciphering the world of Endocrine disruptors and what effects they have on our immune system, hormones, weight and overall health. Fortunately, because I developed such a strong knowledge of cancer and ways to naturally detoxify the body and boost the immune system, this next step seemed to fall right in place. I'm so excited to share this with all of you.
If you are not familiar with Endocrine disruptors, you may want to go back and read my earlier post (Top 3 Things That Are Sabotaging Your Weight Loss and Health- and How to Fix it). If you aren't interested in going back to read it, I will quickly summarize. We eat food that has pesticides. We use products on our bodies that contain chemicals. We are in contact daily with environmental toxins. Why are they bad? They disrupt the process of our Endocrine System.
The Endocrine System is a collection of glands that produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sexual function, reproduction, sleep, and mood. If that system is not working properly, we can begin to see problems like inflammation, weight gain, arthritis, diabetes, and cancer. And not only can the Endocrine System get disrupted by toxins we come in to contact with, but many of the foods we eat and products we use can drown our body with excess Estrogen. This creates a hormone imbalance, which can lead to many health issues, with the biggest concern being hormone related cancers (Prostate, Breast, Ovarian, Cervical, Uterine Cancers). And our bodies can't fix this imbalance without the proper tools.
First, we need to detoxify our body. Get rid of the poisons and damaged cells in the blood stream. Then, we need to boost the immune system to help our body fight naturally. And finally, we need to fix the hormonal imbalance and get our Endocrine system working right. If we do those things, we will see a great shift in our body, like healthy weight, proper blood sugar regulation, decrease in inflammation, improved immune function, and so on. That is why I took the time to research and develop what I believe to be the best combination for balancing our hormones and promoting proper Endocrine system function.
I have spent a great deal of time designing the following Natural Hormone Balance Supplement. I've been shocked at the incredible difference I've felt. I made mention in an earlier post about losing weight naturally by using this. I'm down 10lbs in the past 45 days. My hair is full, thick and soft. (I've never had soft hair in my life). My nails are so strong now and growing long. My skin is getting smoother. I have energy and stamina to get through the day. My brain feels more focused and I'm able to concentrate.
I can say with absolute certainty that this combination was the missing piece for me. I'm now two years out from my original cancer diagnosis, and it's like I never went through any of it. I don't feel like I'm struggling to regain anything. I've been taking the Gold Blend, the Silver Blend, and now the Natural Hormone Balance, and I have never felt better in my life.
So, without further ado, here's Step Three on your path to wellness....
