Want the truth on endocrine-disrupting chemicals and their impact on your fertility?
Trust me - it's not just about avoiding spraying the weeds in the garden or going 'organic' or vegan
What messes with your hormones will mess with your fertility.
There are easy ways to reduce your exposure to EDCs that can make all the difference to your fertility – and they won’t cost you a fortune.
When I first heard about chemicals in our environment that were detrimental to fertility, I brushed it off as a bit of a hippy thing.
Ten years, 5 or 6 miscarriages, and two children later, I did some more investigation on EDCs and I was shocked at what I found.
Did EDCs contribute to my difficulty conceiving and my miscarriages?
It turns out that there are substances in the air, soil, water, food, and manufactured products that can interfere with our body's normal functioning, including our reproductive system.
They’re called endocrine-disrupting chemicals - or EDCs – and they can significantly impact how quickly you can conceive (naturally or with IVF), increase the risk of miscarriage, and create hormonal imbalances.

Inside the Endocrine Disrupting Chemicals and Fertility masterclass
What are EDCs?
In this part of the online class, you’ll learn:
What defines EDCs
What makes them different from other chemicals
Why they matter when it comes to your fertility
Where are EDCs found?
Would you believe me if I told you there are over 800 EDCs that can be found in items that we use every day? They’re hiding in plain sight in:
Your disposable coffee cup
The daily moisturiser that you’ve used for years
Your favourite laundry detergent that smells like ‘home.’
In this lesson, I’ll show you which seemingly harmful products or foodstuffs contain EDCs.
How do EDCs impact my fertility?
I’ll explain how EDCs work to mimic or block the male and female sex hormones, causing:
changes to hormone levels,
decreased egg and sperm quality
damage to DNA in sperm
longer menstrual cycles
longer time to pregnancy
increased risk of miscarriage
You’ll also learn how it’s not just fertility hormones that these chemicals disrupt. EDCs have been linked to endometriosis, early puberty, altered nervous system function, immune function, certain cancers, respiratory problems, metabolic issues, diabetes, obesity, cardiovascular issues, growth, neurological and learning disabilities, and more.
How can I avoid EDCs?
It’s virtually impossible to avoid EDCs altogether; they're everywhere and in everything. But you can take steps to reduce your exposure to them. I’ll show you:
The chemicals you can avoid unnecessary exposure to
The personal care items to avoid
How to read labels on packaging to identify EDCs
Household tips for reducing exposure to EDCs
