Hormone Disruption And Your Exposure To Chemicals

Endocrine disrupting chemicals are everywhere in our bodies, our food, and our environments. The reasons why these compounds affect us adversely, is because their molecules are similar to the shape of our hormone receptors.

A Short List Of Chemicals That Disrupt Our Hormones

  •  mercury found in your mouth – your “silver” dental fillings
  • pesticides, now genetically a part of corn (you eat it often if you do not buy organically grown corn)
  • flame retardants found in furniture, clothes and carpets
  • soft plastics found in everything that is plastic and soft (including objects given to infants to suck or chew)
  • titanium, touted as safe for surgical pins, screws and dental implants

When our endocrine – or hormone – receptors are filled up with the daily flood of these chemicals, then our own healthy, anti aging, mood elevating, muscle building, bone strengthening, brain function chemicals, or hormones, are not able to activate in our bodies.

It is like we don’t have any, yet we do.

The result?

  •  chronic joint aches and pains
  • fatigue
  • depression
  • cancer
  • general low immunity
  • bone loss
  • nerve covering, or myelin sheath degeneration (Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, MS, Lupus etc.)
  • chronic infections

How To Detox Heavy Metals

  •  ingest organic foods only
  • minimize consumption of fish, favoring wild caught salmon
  • avoid new mercury fillings
  • exercise, exercise and exercise
  • eat antioxidant foods and food supplements

The most well known vitamin supplement is probably Vitamin C. It is a good antioxidant. The best supplement to buy is a Vitamin C complex type with bioflavonoids included. The source might be acerola, citrus fruit, rose hips, or a combination. Ascorbic acid is NOT Vitamin C, but only part of the vitamin.

 Dark green vegetables and salad foods contain a wealth of vitamins, like C and A, and trace minerals, that detox heavy metals. The cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, chard and kale, also give you Vitamin K2, which is needed to carry calcium from your arteries back to your bones.

 The cruciferous vegetables also carry extra estrogen out of your body, good for both women and men.

Fresh, organic green foods also add some selenium to your diet. Selenium is crucial for thyroid hormone levels. In turn, your thyroid function is crucial to your immune system and your metabolism.

If eating enough greens is difficult because of your schedule you can opt for a ULTRA GREENS A GREEN FOOD SUPPLEMENT that is easy to take every day.
