Can doing laundry with plain water help with hormonal balance?
I have written about hormone balance and how crucial it is to avoid weight gain.
Today I heard a lengthy explanation about using a magnetic laundry system instead of petroleum based detergents.
I have heard about this for a long time - but this is not the laundry balls I thought it was. It is a magnet system. I'm tempted to try it.
- no estrogen mimickers in the laundry (rubs off into skin)
- no chemicals
- prolongs fabric life
- saves water (don't need rinse cycle)
The prime interest for me is the non-toxic factor. Petroleum products are estrogen mimickers. They are the base for detergents. Detergents also contain formaldehyde which stinks.
So heavy perfumes are used to cover that up. Called phthalates. Click here if you'd like to read details about that.
Hormone health is crucial to healthy weight and happiness too. Hormonal imbalance leads to anxiety, depression, medications (that often in turn increase weight) and general misery.
The MLS Magnetic Laundry System may be a component of the various things a person/household can do to be healthier. I look forward to using it!
