Is your cookware making you sick?

As you probably already know, Estrogen is naturally produced in the body. Did you know though, that there are estrogen mimics?

Let’s get deep on you and your hormones (and how we cycle).

A woman’s cycle varies from woman to woman. Some can be as short as 22 days and some can last 35 days. But we all go through the same phases.

🌑 Phase 1 - Menstruation - 3-7 days - low progesterone and estrogen

🌓 Phase 2 - Follicular - averages 16 days - follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and estrogen and progesterone start to rise

🌕 Phase 3 - Ovulation - 24 hours - luteinizing hormone (LH) and testosterone boost

🌗Phase 4 - Luteal - averages 14 days - begin decrease in your progesterone and estrogen (unless you are pregnant)

During each phase, women undergo different surges of different hormones that can make us angry, sad, weepy, frisky, or completely calm. And that’s just the shortlist, all thanks to hormones. It is so fun being a woman sometimes lol.

The good news is that we can become more in tune with our own natural cycles and know what we will feel like and when through cycle tracking. In comparison, men have a 24-hour cycle.

Do you track your cycle? Have you learned a lot about your body and how your hormones make you feel?

There are some incredible books and audible books that you can get your hands on to help you understand what is going on with your cycle. And if you've got young ladies it pays to know what is going on for them also. My favourite books are Period Queen by Lucy Peach and In The Flo by Alisa Vitti.

As you probably already know, Estrogen is naturally produced in the body. Did you know though, that there are estrogen mimics?


Estrogen mimics are artificial hormones that have a different chemical structure but behave the same as estrogen biologically. These are found in products we use every single day which cause our bodies to take on more estrogen than what we need and cause an overload. Hello, estrogen dominance (this is where my journey to balancing my hormones began).

Where can estrogen mimics be found?

❌ Birth control (uses artificial estrogen)

❌ Parabens in personal products (lotion, shampoo, perfumes, etc)

❌ Plastics (stop storing and cooking your leftovers in plastic, please switch to glass)

❌ Non-stick cookware

The list goes on. We are surrounded by it.

Some essential oils on the other hand can have phytoestrogens that are naturally occurring and support hormone imbalances.

doTERRA’s Phytoestrogen Complex provides supplemental dietary phytoestrogens that help balance and support normal hormone levels.

Do you use doTERRA’s Phytoestrogen Complex?

Alrighty, ladies! 💃

As much as we may not want to admit it, we are all aging. Why not use some products that can help us do so, gracefully and keep us in top form?

As we’ve been discussing, almost all of our bodily functions are controlled by hormones. It is important to be sure that we have a balance of normal hormone levels.

👉 This is where Phytoestrogen Essential Complex comes in!

Phytoestrogen provides supplemental dietary plant-based estrogens that help balance and support normal hormone levels. Pre- and peri-menopausal women take 1 to 2 capsules daily with food or as needed. Post-menopausal women take 2 capsules daily with food.

Along with LLV, Phytoestrogen Essential Complex is a good supplementation to support your body and its hormonal regulations.

So what are you waiting for? Learn about your cycle and track it. And don't forget to grab yourself some Phytoestrogen capsules and get things back on track naturally, the way it should be.

Until next time, take care and look after your cycle. You might be surprised by how much it can really look after you in return :)
