Sisters, doing it for themselves…
Organic sisters! I thought I’d put together some women’s health tips for you to read over and implement into your life. Strong, healthy and empowered women are just what the world needs, so lets do all that we can to be those women!
Tip 1. Change over to low-tox sanitary items. I URGE you! You don’t want to be exposing your ‘cha cha’ to toxic chemicals such as chlorine bleach, BPA’s and synthetic fragrances for 1 week every month, for the best part of 50 years! Studies have linked such exposure to:
Abnormal tissue growth in the abdomen and reproductive organs
Abnormal cell growth throughout the body
Immune system suppression
Hormonal and endocrine system disruption
These days there are lot’s of options out there to pick from. Some include, organic pads and tampons, menstrual cups and menstrual underwear.
Tip 2. Drink more water! Not only does it keep our bowels moving and hydrates our brain, it also helps to ward of wrinkles! Hello anti-ageing!
Tip 3. Ensure you are eating good quality sources of fats and oils. Your omegas play a big role in hormone production, skin health and mental health. Options include organic grass fed meats, avocado, coconut oil, activated seeds and nuts and hemp products.
Tip 4. Get your hormone levels checked and sorted! Many women become over ‘oestrogen-ized’ and this wreaks havoc on the reproductive system. Working with your naturopath and using herbs such as wild yam and chaste tree can really help you sort out your hormones.
Tip 5. Me time and de-stressing! Stress ages us and taxes our immune system… AKA makes us look old and sick! Taking some time each day to spend on you with pay off in the long run! Whether it’s taking a hot bath, going for a walk or sitting on the toilet watching YouTube for 20 minutes, make it a priority to look after you!
