Another Candy, Caffeine and Super Sugar overdose masquerading as Halloween has come and gone which reminded me of the clear connection between how we celebrate holidays and our health.
While being a trainer at an outstanding self-development seminar, many people were sharing struggles and symptoms from haunting health and hormonal issues. Is it a coincidence that many of these conditions are magnified and more prevalent starting with Halloween and continuing on past New Years?
Hormones & Habits
Every day during the event it was clear that the majority of people from all areas of the world are being negatively affected by emotional, mental and physical health issues directly linked to hormone issues. Many of the health issues identified are directly impacted by hormonal health and lifestyle choices. Unfortunately many people fail to connect the dots between their habits, hormones and health.
Hormones are delicate compounds secreted by the endocrine system which are responsible for every function and process that takes place in the human body. When your hormones are not functioning effectively and efficiently at the optimal level and for the necessary duration then every area of your health may be directly and indirectly affected.
Scientific research has clearly shown the link between hormonal imbalances and declines in enzymes (digestive and metabolic) causing two of the most significant impairments to your longevity and vitality.
People share their experiences of emotional anxiety, mental frustration and physical pain indicative of a wide variety of health conditions which are causing significant physical and financial consequences.

There are numerous articles, books and reports addressing the disruption of endocrine glands and resulting hormonal issues, such as:

- Pancreas over stimulation and insulin resistance
- Thyroid gland under or over functioning
- Estrogen imbalance and endocrine disruptors (synthetic xenoestrogens)

People are looking for strategies and suggestions to take control of their hormonal health and regaining improved levels of emotional, mental and physical health and vitality. Billions are spent each year on diagnosis and treatment of health issues that could be avoided by investing the energy, money and time to maintain holistic health and hormonal balance.
People must rediscover the great wisdom in the proven philosophy of “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure”.
Right now many people are feeling fearful and frustrated when in reality they can be focusing on their faith, family and foods to feel fantastic. The ancient wisdom of “you are what you eat” gives us a clear message to help people change their harmful behaviors and thinking in order to stop eating poorly and exposing themselves to toxins which are causing their health and hormonal issues.
Best Support for Glandular Health
The glands in the body depend on a steady supply of fuel, oxygen and water and removal of harmful and waste products for cellular energy, growth and maintenance. They also require a sufficient supply of antioxidants, enzymes, healthy essential fats and oils, minerals, trace elements, phyto-nutrients and vitamins to operate at peak efficiency.
Unfortunately the items mentioned above as well as chemicals, heavy metals and unhealthy fast foods and junk foods have a detrimental effect on the endocrine glands and cardiovascular system, nervous system, organs and tissues of the body. Consuming a wide variety of nutrient dense raw organic whole foods is one of the best ways to insure an adequate supply of all the micro and macro nutrients the body requires.
Suggestion to Take Back Control
It is imperative for you to identify and avoid Xenoestrogens which come from many sources including:
- Additives & preservatives in food
- Body Care Products (makeup, lotions & perfumes)
- Cleaners & Air fresheners
- Factory Farm Animal Products
- Dishwashing & Laundry Detergents
- Herbicides & Pesticides
- Pharmaceutical Medications
Now is a great time to educate and empower yourself with the knowledge and wisdom to reengineer and renew your body, mind and spirit in order to take back control of your emotions, health, nutrition, success and wellness. Remember every few years we replace all the cells in the body so by following the baby steps every day you can replace all the old and problematic cells with new and rejuvenated cells.
While many people are being challenged by haunting health and hormonal issues it is never too late to stop the harm and even begin to reverse some of the consequences.
Mastery Action Plan
Since many people are deficient in many mineral and trace elements it would be wise to learn more about the importance of these key elements for happiness, health and harmony.
After you do your research you will easily see, feel and know the importance of consuming adequate amounts for your hormone health and perfect health.
High quality sea salt is a great source. Sea weed is also a low cost and high quality whole food that is a great source of the minerals and trace elements the body and endocrine glands need. Miso soup is a delicious and nutritious way to enjoy sea weed.
