Environmental Estrogen – Estrogen Dominance.
Environmental estrogens or Xenoestrogens are gaining more notoriety each day. Once entering the body they effect the endocrine glands. They are becoming more prevalent in the Western world. When entering the body they accumulate for years and years and are seriously affecting the reproductive system. Not just in the women but in men. Men’s hormonal diseases are up a great deal and even the size of their “manliness” is said to be shrinking dramatically. In an article recently, the writer said “Maybe John Lennon WAS a prophet when he said ‘I’m not half the man I used to be.’”
There are 1000’s of new toxins each year are entering the market. By the way,BCP’s, Progestins, Provera, Depo-Provera all have estrogen counts and cannot be excreted properly because of the unnatural chemical make up and change in molecular structure.
Eating organically raised food is one big step to cutting out some of the Xenoestrogen in your body but it takes much more than that.
NOTE: Canned goods, plastics, and water are normal every day Xenoestrogen carriers. Pesticides in your foods are the highest personal concentration as well. Detoxification, colon cleansing and natural progesterone are the best defense against these toxins. Flaxseed oil and Evening Primrose Oil also blocks, to some extent, estrogen from taking over progesterone receptors. Another NOTE: Estrogen is the name for a group/or type of hormones and progesterone is a single hormone.
