Is Organic really the way to go?

8 Dec

Having PCOS makes me wonder, how does this happen all of a sudden to three second generation cousins, where their mothers had no sign of it at all? It really confuses me and makes me wonder if all the hormones that are stuffed in our food have anything to do with it. Ever since I got diagnosed I have become a lot more health conscious, and even more so after failed attempts to ovulate to try and have a baby. I started wondering if I changed even more the food that I’m eating, including healthy snacking and about 10% indulgence in my favorite unhealthy food, will lead me anywhere. I have been eating healthy, trying as best as I can to get more organic food, eating lots and lots of fruits and vegetables, and just crossing my fingers. It really makes me mad when I think about food now because all of these food companies have just been hurting us for the sake of producing and making money. I would like to know that when I am consciously making a decision to eat healthy, that I might not be actually adding toxins into my body instead of getting better and healthier. I now feel like some of the blame of my PCOS can fall straight onto the food we eat, the non-organic food we eat that is. I was always the anti-healthy girl, the non-gymer and living life on the edge. Life has just done a complete 180 on me and everything My friends used to make fun of me about, has just caught upto me. I don’t know whether its funny or sad. Maybe a little bit of both. Anyways, green-teaing it up, fruiting it up, and vegging it up to see what happens this month.
Think about what you’re eating and putting into your system, you never know you might actually be doing long term damage without realizing..

    I’ve read it could even be light pollution that is causing the increase in illness these days. We need total darkness for true rest and regeneration when we sleep. About organic food, it’s fine if you can afford it and have a ready supply. If you don’t I think eating whole foods (not processed foods) is pretty darn good for you too. 🙂

      I totally agree with you about the whole foods thing, problem is I’m currently living in Kuwait! Organic food is hard to find, but when I do I’ll just buy it and eat it even if I don’t really like it. We take so much for granted, so much easier to buy non processed food and organic in the states…

        How exciting! (if you’re a boy – not sure it would be my choice for the ladies of the family). Try not to be too paranoid about the food – I’d be excited about trying new things, scrubbing produce well, peeling when that is an option, and enjoying the experience!
