It is called “high estrogen”, or “estrogen dominance”. This is when our levels of this hormone are higher than they should, optimally. When this happens, we may suffer from a number of potential side effects:
Decreased Sexual Desire
Headaches and Migraines
Changes in mood / depression / anxiety
Bloating, water retention and weight gain
Menstrual periods irregular
Sleep / Insomnia Problems
Swollen or tender breasts
More PMS Symptoms
Higher levels of estrogen also increase the risk of certain diseases, including:
Fibrocystic breast disease
Some cancers, including breast and endometrial cancer
WHAT IS THE LEVELS OF ESTROGEN ELEVATED?
Why are our levels of estrogens too high? There are several reasons for this:
A hormonal imbalance, such as when progesterone levels decrease
Some medications (such as antidepressants and contraceptive pills)
Low testosterone or progesterone levels, which can alter the hormonal balance in the body
The low-fiber diet (estrogens are excreted in intestinal constipation) can cause a re-absorption in the body)
Altered hepatic function
Abuse of drugs or alcohol
Overexposure to “oxoestrogens” – artificial chemicals in the environment that mimic the estrogens in the body and disrupt the hormonal balance
It is this latter cause that I am addressing to this post-environment emblem.
WHAT ARE THE XENOESTROGENS?
Xenoestrogens are in many forms. We can find them in the foods we eat, the personal care products we use, and even in medical devices, toys and cooking tools.
The problem is that we have been using hundreds of chemicals in almost every industry for several decades, but we are not really sure of their safety. Recent studies have given us clues, but research is behind production. Meanwhile, we all take part in a giant experiment where no one knows the outcome.
15 WAYS OF DETOX OF EXTRAORDINARY ESTROGEN
To begin to detoxify the oestrogens, I gave you 15 tips below.
Choose a safe skin care: a number of ingredients in skin care products, including parabens, some chemical solar screens, phthalates and petroleum chemicals, are the XA © noestrogÃ¨nes. Look for brands that are more aware of the use of natural and organic ingredients that do not increase estrogen levels.
Choose organic cattle and dairy products: Be sure to choose the organic beef (and fodder). Conventional farms feed livestock estrogenic medicines to fatten and improve dairy production.
Eating organic products: Studies show that it has lower levels of pesticides, and many pesticides are hormone disrupters. Always wash your food because even organic products can contain pesticide residues.
Eat enough fiber: the body gets rid of the excess estrogen by digestion, but you need enough fiber to avoid things from moving. Eat greens more leafy, nuts, seeds, fruits and beans.
Avoid plastics: plastic water bottles, food containers, bags and more often contain chemicals such as bisphenol-A (BPA) and bisphenol-S (BPS), which imitate the estrogens in the body. Store and cook microwaves in glass or ceramic containers. The main thing is to avoid extreme temperatures with plastics – they decompose chemicals and make them jump into your food and drinks.
Avoid canned foods: most have plastic coatings made with BPA. A study conducted by the National Work Group for Safe Markets revealed that more than 90 percent of the cans tested had been detestedlevels of BPA. Choose boxes, framed or fresh instead.
Restricting Processed Foods: Most of the xenotropes we are exposed to in foods come from processed foods because they contain as many preservatives and colorings. Choose as fresh and fresh as possible.
Cooking in ceramic or cast iron: this practical non-stick cooker is a good source of xenestrogens. In case of overheating, it will risk disrupting chemicals of the mouth in your food. Cook in ceramic or cast iron pans and pans for a healthier meal.
Try supplements that reduce oestrogens: some supplements help to eliminate the xestrogens of the body. Try calcium-D-glucarate, DIM, milk thistle, choline and taurine. Ask a naturopath for guidance.
Choose healthier laundry products: fabric softeners and common laundry products contain petrochemicals that act as xestrogens. Look for products with less ingredients, or become natural by making your own detergent with lye, baking soda, borax and mild soap.
Shop carefully for furniture: Many modern furniture are bathed in flame retardants, which are xenestrogens. Find companies that sell flameless furniture and use natural latex foam cushions and look for antique furniture sold in antique stores before flame retardants are used.
Avoid soybeans: although it is not a chemical estrogen, it is a vegetable oestrogen and can eliminate hormonal balance.
Study: Studies show that exercise decreases estrogen levels. A 2011 study, for example, revealed that premenopausal women who engaged in aerobic exercises for 300 minutes per week lowered total estrogen of nearly 19%. A study of 2013 also revealed that aerobic exercise helps the body to decompose the estrogens, so it is easier to escape. vader.
Turn on enough: when you do not get enough sleep, the levels of the so-called ‘melatonin hormone’ are disrupted. It turns out that the metononin has a protective effect against the excess estrogen. A 1999 study, for example, showed that metononin contributed to block the growth of cancer cells induced by estrogens.
Use a water filter: public water supplies often contain chlorine, fluoride and other industrial chemicals that act as xestrogens. Use a quality filter to reduce your exposure.
