[Ep. 165] How Chemical Fragrances Are Causing Your Anxiety (& Other Hormonal Issues) w/ Karen Hurd
Sep 24, 2023

On today's episode, Luis and Karen discuss how perfume and other chemical fragrances effect our bodies. Since they can be inhaled or absorbed through the skin, many of us are constantly bathed in them: either in our home, our workplace, or out in the world.

In this episode, we cover the ways that the body reacts. Perfumes and other synthetic fragrances:

  • Stimulate a physiological hormonal response
  • Can change the expression of DNA, and turn on and off genes
  • Are more damaging and pervasive to the human body than microplastics (which often get more attention)
  • Can worsen symptoms of illnesses caused by high estrogen levels

Luis and Karen also review some simple-to-implement suggestions on how to get started on the journey of detoxifying your body and home.
