I wanted answers to my questions!
For years I was living my life without any clue about the damage the products I was putting on my body, using around the home, and living with constant work-related stress, were doing to me and that would result in an early menopause diagnosis at 32 years of age, after over 12 months of trying to conceive.
Yet to have my cycle return, I was seeing naturopaths and integrative health practitioners, to help reverse the diagnosis.
After many years, and thousands of dollars, my attempts were unsuccessful. This was heartbreaking and financially crippling. No one told me about the full extent of toxins and stress and how they were affecting me physically and mentally.
In 2011, a wonderful lady donated her eggs to me. After 3 miscarriages I finally had a pregnancy go to full term and my daughter was born five years after my diagnosis. A few months after her birth, whilst researching for a chemical-free mineral foundation, I started to understand what was actually in our products and the damage these ingredients are causing. Everything from cancer, weight gain, depression, insomnia, brain fog, behavioural issues and grumpy hormones!
I also discovered that sadly many companies weren't transparent with their ingredients despite marketing themselves as being safe and earth friendly. For them it is all about the bottom line!
Today I'm armed with information and products from a company I know has my health as a priority before their profits. I wonder if my diagnosis might have been reversed if I had discovered them all those years ago....
I don't want anyone to go through what I had to to have a family. Especially my own kids. So I'm now on a mission to empower other mums and mums-to-be with tools to take back their health.
