The lifestyle changes you can make to reduce everyday toxins that could be harming your health.

Understanding the importance of minimizing exposure to hormone-disrupting chemicals is vital as they can interfere with your body’s natural hormone balance.  


Toxic chemicals can be found in a variety of everyday products, including personal care items, food containers, and household cleaners. They are dangerous as they can mimic, block, or alter hormone signals in the body, leading to a wide range of adverse health effects. 


Specifically, hormone-disrupting chemicals interfere with the body’s endocrine system, altering hormone balance and increasing the risk of chronic diseases like diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular disease, and certain cancers. They also impact reproductive health, fertility, and fetal development, leading to developmental disorders and neurobehavioral problems.  

Beyond your body, these chemicals have a detrimental environmental impact, accumulating in soil, water, and air, and posing risks to wildlife.   


While your body is equipped to handle a certain amount of toxins, it’s important to reduce the overall burden by minimizing exposure to hormone-disrupting chemicals.

Health Coach Tips for Choosing Safer Products 

  • Check the Ingredient List: Look for products that are free of hormone-disrupting chemicals. Use resources like the Environmental Working Group (EWG) database to help you make informed choices. 
  • Not All Products Are Created Equal: Even within the same brand, some products may contain more harmful ingredients than others. Always read the labels carefully. 
  • Stay Informed: Formulations of products can change over time. Make sure to periodically check the ingredient list of your favorite products to ensure they are still safe for use. 


By taking these steps to reduce your exposure to hormone-disrupting chemicals and supporting your body’s natural detox processes, you can help maintain a healthy hormone balance and reduce your risk of developing health issues related to toxin exposure.
