Good Morning

This blog comes from Melbourne this weekend as I attend the International Congress of Natural Medicine devotes this year to the topic of reproductive hormones and mast cell activation syndrome- recently found to be linked together.

Usually mast cell involvement is connected to histamine release related to allergies like hay fever and eczema. We are now seeing the release of histamine also involved in the development of reproductive diseases like endometriosis and adverse menopausal symptoms.

Hormones are chemical messengers - they deliver information to other organs and tissues that report the state of health of another part of the body.

If you have a chemical storm going on every menstrual cycle, a history of allergies and a family history of thyroid disease or imbalance - which is quite a commune combination of events - you may need to adopt a multifunctional approach to achieve a calm and predictable cycle. Let’s hafe a quick look at some stats - because these are not concerns that just hit women.

PCOS - 20% of women are considered to have poly cystic ovarian syndrome
70% of these women are currently still undiagnosed

1:20 Australian men are infertile from biological causes linked back to the endocrine health of their grandmothers and mothers

BPA found in plastics were found in the urine of 93% people tested - BPA and BPS are known endocrine Hormone disrupters.

1419 known endocrine disrupting chemicals are currently listed on the TEDx website - most of these are found in modern day households

Not only do we produce hormones - we are ingesting, breathing and bathing in them. Not only are hormonal problems a female exclusive health concern- our men are just as vulnerable to receiving an invitation to that party.

If you suspect you or someone you love is experiencing Hormone influenced health concerns - show them this email and invite them to make an appointment so we can navigate the labyrinth of Hormone health together.

Have a super weekend
