Hormonal Squirrels - What's the Connection?
Ha ha - here we go again with squirrels.....well...there's a reason.

Did you know that there is a HUGE correlation between issues with your endocrine system (hormone factory of the body) and the disruption of brain development that can sometimes lead to ADHD (squirrel issues)?

Our endocrine system is a collection of glands that produce hormones that regulate metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, reproduction, sleep, and mood.   This body system is SO incredibly sensitive it can be altered by a change no bigger than one tenth of a trillion of a gram?   I'd say that's pretty touchy.

Did you know there's was a 43% increase in reported cases of ADHD between 2003 and 2011?  Or that cases of Autism have risen 119% since 2000?  But what does that have to do with our hormones?   Endocrine disruptors are synthetic chemicals hidden in products we interact with DAILY.  When's the last time you REALLY looked at the ingredient list on something?

  • cosmetics
  • toothpaste
  • detergents
  • medicines
  • pesticides
In small doses this may not do much.....but when you brush your teeth twice daily?  Wash you and your family's clothes weekly, when you put your make up on every morning?    How old are you?  20 something? 30 something?   So that means, if my parents started brushing my teeth at the age of one, and I've only ever brushed my teeth once a day, by the time I turn 40 I have exposed myself to the endocrine disrupting chemicals in toothpaste 14,235 times!!    1 grain of salt may not do much but if you put a cup of salt in a recipe, it will definitely throw things off.

My challenge to you, should you choose to accept it, next time you grab your toothpaste to brush your teeth....take a look at the list of ingredients and google a couple of them.
