Every day the average person uses about a dozen personal care products that contain more than 150 different ingredients.
Many of these products are designed to penetrate the skin and some of the chemicals they are made from actually turn up inside our bodies and can do harm.
Some of your favorite everyday beauty products might contain ingredients, like phthalates and parabens that can actually wreak havoc on our hormones.
Today’s Contest Question*
True or False: Your personal care products including makeup, sunscreen, shampoo, deodorant, cleansers, and lotions can contain harmful ingredients that can disrupt your hormones.
Today’s Featured Doctor: Leigh Fisher, ND
From an early age, Dr. Leigh Fisher has had a strong desire to help others and be a part of the healthcare profession.
That desire was strengthened while studying health science and biology at Dalhousie University, where she obtained her Bachelor of Science degree. After discovering Naturopathic Medicine and realizing that health is so much more than the absence of disease, but an ability to adapt and thrive, she went on to obtain her Doctor of Naturopathic Medicine degree from Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine in Tempe, Arizona.
Her extensive training and hands-on experience with patients has provided her with the ability to offer the best medical care with a natural approach. She sees the growing need in Nova Scotia for additional healthcare options and believes that every patient should have access to quality, as well as individualized health care, that puts them first. She treats every patient uniquely in order to optimize their health.
Her primary focus is treating conditions related to women’s health including fertility, menstrual issues, menopause, and PCOS as well as GI issues, hormone imbalance, and natural aesthetics.
