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..

Make your own hand sanitiser

The active ingredient in this hand sanitizer recipe is the alcohol, which needs to comprise at least 60% of the product in order to be an effective disinfectant. The recipe calls for 99% isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) or ethanol (grain alcohol, most commonly available at 90%-95%). Please don't use any other types of alcohol (e.g., methanol, butanol), as they are toxic. Also, if you use a product that contains a lower percentage of alcohol (e.g., 70% alcohol) then you need to increase the amount of alcohol in the recipe or it won't be an effective disinfectant.
