Genetics

We are not totally at the mercy of our genes. Good nutrition can help good gene expression.

Estrogens can be found in

  • Water
  • Plastic, when heated, releases oestrogen mimickers into the food and water it holds
  • Hormone fed animals, particularly chicken – can also lead to Moobs (Man Boobs!)
  • Overloaded hormone pathways can shunt hormones down cancerous routes

Toxicity

We create toxins inside us as well as those from outside

  • Internal
    • Overloaded detoxification pathways affect liver, hormones, kidneys, lymph drainage
    • Over /under immune function creates inappropriate responses
  • External
    • Hormones – meat, milk, water, plastics
    • Metals – water, fish, dental fillings, aluminium pans, cosmetics, some medications
    • Chemicals –  herbicides, pesticides, cleaning products, drugs, alcohol, etc

Stress

Ongoing and unresolved stress creates toxic chemical overload.

Stress can be mental /emotional, chemical, physical, and situational. We can be unaware of stress in our body.

What can we do?

  • Eat
    • More fruit and vegetables, preferably local, organic and picked when ripe!
    • Cruciferous vegetables (e.g. broccoli) help the body mop up excess estrogens
    • Good quality oils
    • Good wholefood supplement
  • Limit toxic exposure
    • Choose organic where possible – foods, cosmetics, household products
    • Drink clean water – invest in a good filter to remove heavy metals and estrogens
    • Beware of heated plastic
