Manipulating hormones PT2

Xenoestrogens & the 3P’s

Plastics, Pesticides & Parabens


Xenoestrogens are chemical compounds found in nature that imitate the hormone oestrogen. 


The 3 major sources of xenoestrogens are Plastics, Pesticides & Parabens.


Evidence is building, suggesting the 3 P’s are partly to blame for hormonal imbalances in today’s society such as;
*Lower testosterone levels in men.
*Thyroid issues & Oestrogen dominance in women.
*Hormonal imbalances rising in the general public.

PLASTICS;
Plastic is everywhere! Just stop and take a look around for 2 seconds.

*Plastic bags

*Plastic containers

*Plastic drink bottles

*Plastic Toys

*kids dummies

*Microwavable bags & containers.


Plastic is literally everywhere

Swap food containers for glass and your drink bottles for stainless steel, at a very minimum STOP heating foods in plastics.

PESTICIDES;
Are chemicals used on our foods to keep PESTS at bay and are linked to a wide range of health problems, they include;

*Herbicides

*Pesticides

*Insecticides

*fungicides

*insect repellent ECT ECT..


Glyphosate has shown to be linked to cancer growth & other auto immune conditions.

Go grass fed, Wild caught, cage free, Organically grown ETC ETC or at the very minimum rinse your produce before eating it.

PARABENS;
Yep, cosmetics again. Our skin is the largest organ we have, meaning everything we touch & come into contact with is absorbed in to our bodies with the potential to cause us harm.
Yes, even those cheap $2 deodorants & shampoo’s.
Look for products that state:
*Carcinogen Free

*Paraben Free

*Sulphate Free

*Mineral Oil Free ECT ECT..

PT-3 coming soon manipulating hormones through nutrition.

Changing the game (Game changers review)
Changing the game (Game changers review)

December 15, 2019

The game changes is a documentary on Netflix promoting a vegan diet for better health and performance. In this article I will attempt to break down and compare some of the misconceptions made in the film. Confirmation bias is a term used when people seek out information and studies to back up their claims, we have all been guilty of this at times.
The game changers is jam packed (excuse the pun) with celebrities promoting their choice of diet and pseudoscience to back up said claims which makes it harder for people without a science background to challenge the claims that have been made in the film.

Roman gladiators ate a vegan diet
Gladiators were slaves owned by Roman aristocrats for entertainment purposes. The life expectancy of a gladiator was approximately two years once becoming a slave. It has been said gladiators were fed a diet full of grains and legumes to not only pack on body fat which offered some protection from cuts and wounds in the arena but was also a cheaper source of calories to feed the slave labour.

4) Progressive relaxation; tensing and relaxing various muscle groups can help to prevent muscle spasms after a few sets of toning and relaxing.
