Common environmental toxins that disrupt our endocrine system… causing hormonal imbalances.
In this article, we have a look at this shocking revelation on everyday endocrine hormonal disruptors.
Is your GP or endocrinologist telling you about these, while he/she charges you an arm and a leg for pharmaceutical hormone balancing drugs that literally just mask your symptoms?
In our everyday lives and daily routines, we unknowingly use many products that are harmful to our bodies. Included in these harmful products are what is known as xen-estrogens – animal derived hormones, chemicals and toxins that disrupt the natural hormone balance in our bodies.
Xen-estrogens mimic the hormone estrogen, causing Estrogen Dominance (ED). They disrupt the body’s natural balance and processes when it comes to hormone control.
Increased or continuos low grade exposure to these xen-estrogens, affects the balance of hormones that control and regulate stress, sleep, appetite, sex drive etc. – a whole host of symptoms that many of us are currently experiencing
Common xen-estrogens include:
The harmful impact of xen-estrogens affects both males and females:
Estrogen Dominance (ED) in females results in low progesterone associated issues such as infertility, weight gain, insulin resistance, menopausal symptoms and irregular menstrual cycles. In males, Estrogen Dominance (ED) results in low testosterone, causing decreased sex drive, fatigue, and erectile dysfunction (the scarier ED :-).
Common symptoms of hormonal imbalance and/or estogen dominance:
· Unexplained weight gain/stubborn weight-loss
· Hormone related cancer and Auto-immune conditions
· Sleep disturbances
· Stress and anxiety
· Irritability and Cravings
· Severe PMS
· Tiredness and fatigue
· Breast tenderness
· Thinning/ brittle hair
· Weak/brittle bones
· Skin changes e.g. acne, dry skin
· Insulin resistance
Paying attention to daily toxin exposure including xen-estrogens, is fundamental to our longevity and good health! Toxic build up affects our overall bodily functioning as well as how we feel emotionally. Accumulation of toxins including endocrine disruptors ultimately leads to inflammation, illness and disease. Preventing toxin build up requires changes in our lifestyle including food storage habits, skin care, hair care, environment and overall nutritional intake.
We often think of the diagnosis of a disease as the beginning point. However, illness and disease manifest as a result of years of accumulated toxin exposure, hormonal imbalances and low grade chronic inflammation.
