The Roots of Health – The 7 Deadly Estro-Sins with Bonnie Penner

There’s nothing like a warm bubble bath to relax you, maybe in a tub surrounded by vanilla-scented candles… And once you’re done, for sure you’ll want to moisturize before you lounge around in your super soft & fluffy bath robe. This sort of self-care is encouraged by health & wellness professionals everywhere. I should know, I sanction this activity. But are the bubbles and fragrances and lotions and fabric softeners that make this scenario so luxurious doing your body more harm than good?

Here to help us answer this question is Bonnie Penner – a woman on a mission to educate us about the dangers of xenoestrogens in our lives and to provide solutions for us so that we can keep our self-care routine safe & truly health promoting.

Bonnie and I discuss what xenoestrogens are, how you can identify them in your life, and what you can do to replace them so that you can live xenoestrogen free. We talk about BPA (#7 plastics) & Phthlates (#3 plastics) to introduce the idea of xenoestrogens – and go on to define the BS FACTS – an acronym to help you remember the ‘7 Deadly Estro-Sins’ (Bubbles, Scents, Fire Retardants, Antibacterial Products, Cans, Three’s & Seven’s, & SPF).

Bonnie has agreed to join me again to talk about her personal story and the biological impact of xenoestrogens, as well as for a show discussing the ways to detox from xenoestrogen exposure. I’m looking forward to having her back on the show! Stay tuned!
