Lovin' For The Ladies
Happy International Women’s Day
Happy international women’s day! How great is it to be a woman? We’re all so unique and beautiful, and deserve to be celebrated! While unique, there is one thing we all have in common…. our wonderful PERIOD! Have you ever given much thought into the products you use when ‘Aunty Flo’ is in town?
Did you know that many cheaper, conventional sanitary brands contain a tonne of nasties? Some of these include chlorine bleach, BPA (hormone disruptors), plastics and synthetic fragrances. Side effects of exposure can include:
- Abnormal tissue growth in the abdomen and reproductive organs
- Abnormal cell growth
- Immune system suppression
- Bacterial imbalance
- Hormonal disruption
But have no fear! There are many safe and effective sanitary options these days. You may have heard of menstrual cups, period underwear and organic, toxic free pads and tampons. One of the favourite brands that we stock in store, is the TOM Organic Range. We urge all ladies to give them or any of our other organic brands a go today!
Your vagina is a very delicate part of your body and should be treated like the queen it is!
If you’d like to chat more about what options could work for you, or about your menstrual cycle in general, book an appointment with our Naturopath online or call one of our stores today!
