Pesticides, chlorine, dioxin and GMO cotton are a few of the things absorbed in our bodies monthly and has a close relationship with one of the most permeable parts of our bodies, our vagina. Think about it… you have been using these products since you started your cycle, on second thought, let’s rewind to infancy. As a woman, you have potentially been absorbing chemical into your vagina and cervix since you were literally wearing diapers. Yes, you did get a break once you were potty trained, but once your menstrual cycle began, you began using products again with these harmful chemicals in them.
What can these chemicals potentially do? These pesticides can lead to hormonal imbalances, dioxin can cause a disrupt in estrogen and collect in fatty tissue (estrogen dominance), decrease airflow in the vagina, and can result in breast cancer, endometriosis and the reason we are here…Fibroids. According to a draft report by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), dioxin is a health threat without a safe level of expose. 1 Yikes! What does that really mean?
Please stay tuned for a video to be posted next week that will repeat an experiment performed by Andrea Donsky, founder of Naturally Savvy. Manufactured pads and an organic pad will be burned and compared to one another!
