Estrogen is a group of female sexual hormones, but are also produced in men in smaller amounts. Our hormonal balance comes under threat when foreign estrogens are excessively introduced in to our bodies, creating estrogen dominance. These foreign estrogens are compounded in our bodies and are difficult to detoxify through the liver.
Estrogen dominance does not only affect women, it affects our whole family. High estrogen in men causes symptoms such as infertility, growth of breast tissue & erectile dysfunction. High estrogen in children causes puberty to arrive prematurely and raises their cancer risk from a younger age. We are all suffering from some form of estrogen dominance because there is so much of it in our environment.
Estrogen dominance equals higher risk of cancer.
This is because estrogen promotes growth hormone production and cancer can be defined as an uncontrolled growth of cells. Excess estrogen can be linked to excess growth within our body, leading to cysts, fibroids, polyps, nodules, thickening of walls … essentially uncontrolled mass of cell growth leading towards tumours.
Remember, CANCER is the #1 killer in the land. Cancer is not some elusive bogeyman that strikes randomly. Cancer is not an accident waiting to happen. You are the sum of all the choices that you make daily. Educate yourself and know that what you consume or use daily matters.
What are Xenoestrogens, and where can we find them?
They are in the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat. Xeno literally means foreign, so xenoestrogens equals foreign estrogens. They mimic the hormones in our bodies and wreak havoc with our hormonal balance.
Here are a few sources of xenoestrogens that we should eliminate:
Estrogen dominance can be reduced with the right nutrition, a healthy functioning liver and by reducing exposure to environment estrogens. It is important to take a holistic approach to hormone balance and promote the detoxification of these foreign estrogens.
