My View on Birth Control for Acne Cure March 07 2017, 0 Comments

I was originally all for birth control because a ton of my friends use it and it gave them clear skin and fixed their cramps. But then I did my own research and now all I want to do is stop taking this pill.Now, I know so many people like birth control because it protects you from surprise babies, can cure your acne, and fix your cramps. But, I just want to say a few things. Birth control is putting artificial hormones into your body. ARTIFICIAL HORMONES. Your body is a very natural system that can heal itself if you let it. Messing with that system can’t be good. Putting something artificial into something natural is throwing off the whole balance of your system. Yes, it’s a

Now, I know so many people like birth control because it protects you from surprise babies, can cure your acne, and fix your cramps. But, I just want to say a few things. Birth control is putting artificial hormones into your body. ARTIFICIAL HORMONES. Your body is a very natural system that can heal itself if you let it. Messing with that system can’t be good. Putting something artificial into something natural is throwing off the whole balance of your system. Yes, it’s a fast, temporary fix, but you aren’t doing your body any favors.

Also, if you are on birth control for some time it does affect your reproductive system. Just think about it, the hormones are preventing you from releasing an egg and on the off chance that an egg is released, your uterus is made hostile so the egg can’t attach to the wall. Then for a week you have a placebo pill with no hormones. During this time your body basically freaks out because there’s suddenly no more hormones and it sheds the uterus lining. And it’s not like you’re just doing it for a month, most people are on birth control for years. That’s years of a hostile uterus and your body freaking out for a week every month. 

Yes, some might say, well your body freaks out for a week every month anyway. But it’s supposed to do that naturally, not from deprivation of artificial hormones that it has become accustomed to. Weird analogy but it’s kind of like a drug addict, you take away the drug and the addict freaks out.
Ok, now that I’ve done my shpeel on birth control I want to address that there are other ways of fixing cramps and throwing up from your period and all the side effects from your menstrual cycle. The reason these things are happening is from a hormone imbalance. This can be fixed naturally. First, get you hormones tested, this way you know which hormones you need more or less of. Next, talk to your doctor or go see a naturopath. 

There are certain foods and supplements that can help to adjust certain hormones. These are good, healthy, natural ways of curing your hormonal imbalances. Now you might be thinking, well why haven’t I heard of this before? Well, birth control is the fastest and cheapest way of helping a patient with cramps. A doctor’s goal is to get you in and out of their office as fast as they can and to legally protect their ass. This is why it is always so important to do your own research and ask your doctor tons of questions. Because although it might be the fastest cure, there are other options out there that might be better for you in the long run.
