Childhood Hormonal Imbalance is Now Commonplace
I am observing boys and girls 8-10 years old with underarm hair, breast development and mood swings like a hurricane. What's causing all this? Junk food hamburgers, fried chicken and especially cheese-laden pizzas loaded with growth hormones being used by
producers. Add to that xenoestrogens now in water, air, and mass
produced plastics, and the stage is set for your child's hormones to go
What can you do?
Be diligent in your efforts to remove empty foods from your child's
life. When cooking your own meals, limit meat and ban ALL dairy
products - they are meant to pack pounds on a baby cow, not a human
being. Switch to organic almond milk or coconut milk (my favorite), hemp milk or
the new flax seed milk. If you consume meat, make it organic, grass-fed
beef or wild-caught salmon. Introduce more plant-strong meals with
salads, grains and homemade soups.
Finally, add supplements that will assist in keeping their hormones
balanced and give them the additional nutrition their growing bodies
What is at the Root of Hormone Imbalance?
While most of us think about the raging hormones of teenagers, hormones are present in a child's body from birth. It's when these hormones become out of balance that we start to see
young children having issues with excessive weight gain,
underarm hair growth and developing breasts.
Heading into their teens these problems persist and then can be
compounded further with severe mood swings, even to the point of anger,
anxiety, or depression. Your child can feel like they're living in a
Many factors are involved, from chemicals in the water, and dangerous ingredients that are found in water bottles, cans, non-stick pans and even microwave popcorn.
Could your food be altering your child's hormones?
Between added growth hormones in animal farming to GMO production
in our grains, there is strong evidence that this is leading to a
country filled with young people whose hormones are out of balance.
There are frightening reports out there, such as babies growing breasts
due to formula with bovine growth hormones in it. Can you trust any
facet of the food industry to have your child's best interest at heart?
Growth Hormones and GMO's
harm your family at far greater levels than the food industry is
willing to admit. What they continually express as being safe is
actually far from it.
We hear the horror stories of kids who start their day with an energy
drink, loaded with caffeine equivalent to 7 cups of coffee, and a GMO-laden
granola bar for lunch. Their hormones don't have a fighting chance. Not
only that, but kids are dying from these drinks!

Make Probiotics Your Child's New Best Friend
When it comes to elevating health, good bacteria called probiotics are essential for
well-being. Beneficial microbes metabolize and recycle hormones,
including estrogen, thyroid hormones, and phytoestrogens.
Probiotics play a major role in helping to maintain hormonal balance
in women from the teenage menstruating years to the postmenopausal
years. When gut balance is out of balance, hormone
imbalance can result.
