Your hormones are involved in every aspect of your health. You need them in very specific amounts for your body to function optimally. Hormonal imbalances may increase your risk of obesity, diabetes, heart disease and other health problems. Hormones are how your body communicates with its cells. Unbalanced hormones simply means that you have a communications problem.
Hormones are a communications pathway. The nervous system perceives the environment both internal and external and has you respond accordingly by triggering your endocrine system to release the chemicals you need to maintain homeostasis.
The Autonomic Nervous System has two sections.
The Parasympathetic Nervous System (Rest – Digest – Repair), it’s function is to stimulate the immune system and repair tissues. It also increases blood supply to the gut and controls all repair mechanisms. The parasympathetic nervous system is generally activated at night.
The Sympathetic Nervous System (Fight – Flight – Freeze), it’s function is to keep you alive under stress, by increasing your heart rate, blood pressure, blood sugar, LDL Cholesterol and stress hormones.
It also decreases blood supply to the gut and slows down immune system function. The sympathetic nervous system is generally active during the day.
The nervous system also controls hormone production and secretion.
The hormones we produce depend on which state we’re in. This can also depend on where your perception is, because this will radically alter your hormone levels, or your cell to cell communications.
Example: I have a fear of falling, the thought of bungee jumping absolutely terrifies me, even just the thought of it puts me into a sympathetic dominant state. However, I have a friend who thinks it’s the best thing since sliced bread, so the opposite reaction of parasympathetic dominant state is active for her. It’s about perception, two people, same situation, two very different hormonal responses.
Hormones do not just come from one organ system. The illustration below shows all of the organ systems and the hormones that are secreted from each area. We know that hormones are elevated in certain conditions, we know that they’re depressed in certain conditions, we know what certain organ systems are producing. We know that certain hormones are produced by more than one area of the body, and that this has multiple effects on the body, so when we talk about hormones we need to understand that the term ‘hormones’ means ‘communications device within the body’ and that’s it!
There are two different types of hormones, water-soluble and fat-soluble.
Water-soluble hormones dissolve in water, they are formed from amino acids, which are themselves the structural units of proteins and are soluble in water. They cannot pass through target cell membranes. Water-soluble hormones affect cells by binding to receptors on the surface of the target cells.
Fat-soluble hormones are lipid-soluble hormones, which means they dissolve in fats rather than water. They are usually formed from cholesterol (cholesterol being important components of cell membranes). Fat-soluble hormones can pass through cell membranes and affect cells by binding to receptors inside the target cells.
Do you remember the basic cell structure from high school? Our cells are encased in fat a layer, in science this is called a lipid bilayer, which simply means the cell has two layers of phospholipid molecules included within the outer membrane of most cells. I’m a huge fan of Cell Biologist Dr Bruce Lipton, Dr Lipton talks about how we used to think that the nucleus was the brains of the cell, but we now know that the nucleus is actually the gonads of the cell and the brains of the cell is in fact the membrane that surrounds the cells.
This means that fat-soluble hormones can actually pass through that lipid membrane, to get to the nucleus to tell the nucleus what proteins to produce.
The water-soluble hormones, which are made mostly out of proteins, connect to the outside of the cell or to the receptor sites on the cell membrane which initiates cellular changes, to either increase or decrease the function of the cell.
What’s interesting about fat-soluble hormones is that they’re usually formed out of cholesterol. Wait a second! Does that mean that if we have high cholesterol, and you look at the body as being intelligent, that it’s probably producing cholesterol for a purpose, because cholesterol has a function, and one of those functions is to produce HORMONES!
Let’s look at things that disrupt hormones.
We’ve already established that we have a communications pathway which the nervous system senses and our hormones respond by telling tissue to do different things. Example; ovulate, produce stomach acid, break down proteins, produce proteins etc. If that pathway is interrupted, then we have a problem – called DISEASE! Meaning, the body is not at ease, because the body is constantly working to get back into balance to maintain homeostasis.
What type of things can interrupt the brains communication to the tissues? Those things are called “Endocrine Disruptors”.
Endocrine disruptors came with industrialisation and a chemical based health care system. Chemicals make their way into the environment and into our body’s.
Endocrine disruptors can be found in:
- Personal Care Products
Unfortunately, there are no current laws to address endocrine disruptors which means they are not regulated.
Anything that disrupts the communication from the tissues to the organ system, or from the organ systems to the tissue, results in “altered function”.
I’ll give an example: you’ve heard of BPA? Well BPA isn’t just in plastic bottles, BPA is in manufacturing, it’s in the air, it’s in the plants, it’s in the animals, it’s everywhere! So this is not something you can just say well, I’m going to go off and become an organic vegan, I never touch that stuff, because you’ll still be getting it! There’s absolutely no point in hiding from it, even if you live in a jungle in Uruguay, then you might have ‘less’ exposure, maybe?
What do Endocrine Disruptors do?
Endocrine disruptors are exogenous agents that are either synthetic or natural that interferes with the production, release, transport, metabolism, binding, biologic action or elimination of natural ligands in the body that are responsible for the maintenance of homeostasis and the regulation of developmental processes.Enhanced interleukin‐4 production in CD4+ T cells and elevated immunoglobulin E levels in antigen‐primed mice by bisphenol A and nonylphenol, endocrine disruptors: involvement of nuclear factor‐AT and Ca2+
If you have an endocrine disruptor, or are exposed to it, it’s going to interrupt the homeostasis, regulation and development of how your body functions, this means EVERYTHING!
The body is designed to produce proteins, eliminate waste products and adapt to the environment, but if you have something that interrupts that communication, then you’ll have altered cell function.
What are the things that can happen?
When we look at our population today, do we say, we have a healthy dynamic people where disease is a thing of the past, people are living to 120 years old with no assisted living centres, it’s just amazing! My god, people are disgustingly healthy! NO! To the contrary, we have a population where our kids are not going to outlive their parents, around 50% of our children have some type of medical condition, mostly chronic illness or disease, and cancer is effecting about half of the population. This is happening now, and it’s happening more and more rapidly!
What’s happening to our population?
Are we just getting sicker and dumber? Or are we exposed to things that are interrupting our brain to tissue communications?
If you’ve been exposed to BPA, Dioxine, PCB’s, Estrogens (the pill), Pesticides, MSG, Formaldehyde, Phytoestrogens, Lead, Heavy Metals, Aluminium etc, then ask yourself what kinds of diseases are associated with these?
- Breast/Prostate Cancer
- Diabetes/Metabolic Syndrome
- Early Puberty
- Susceptibility to infections
- Autoimmune disease
- Heart disease/Hypertension
- Alzheimer’s disease
- Parkinson’s disease
- ADHD/Learning disorders
All of these can be caused by exposure to endocrine disruptors, or a breakdown in the communication pathway between the brain and tissue cells.
Breast cancer for example, does not come from bad luck or bad genes. Our great-grandparents didn’t have it. Our great-great grandparents didn’t have it, in fact they most likely had never heard of it. What we’re seeing is a generational thing that’s wiping out our population, this generational thing is caused by environmental toxicity!
Almost every disease you can think of fits the criteria for chemical poisoning, there are now hundreds of conditions, and we treat those conditions with what? MORE CHEMICALS!
The most common question I get asked is about hot flashes.
Remember, hormones are a chemical created ‘inside‘ the body that communicates with different tissues and organs. So what is a hot flash anyway? It generally occurs when you lay down to rest. Those who experience them have been exposed to a huge amount of endocrine disruptors or poisons in our environment, so when you rest, the parasympathetic nervous system kicks in and fires up the immune system, for every one degree of temperature increase the speed of your immune system doubles! So if you’re experiencing an elevation in temperature and sweating, recognise that this is an immune response to detox your body! Unfortunately we have these brilliant doctors prescribing HRT”s (and they have no idea what these HRT’s are actually doing by the way) that are causing an increase in cancer to control hot flashes, absolutely genius, oh the irony! You don’t have hot flashes anymore, but enjoy your cancer!
What about other suppression drugs?
What happens when you suppress a blood pressure response? It turns out for every one blood pressure medication you take your risk of stroke increases. A blood pressure drug is a chemical messenger, a hormone is a chemical messenger, are you understanding this? The drug will actually work and reduce your blood pressure, however, if you were to address the cause of the high blood pressure, physical, chemical or emotional stress, your body would produce it’s own blood pressure medication without giving you cancer or causing a stroke!
Scientists found the risk of stroke went up by a third for each blood pressure medication taken. People who needed three or more medications were at a 248 percent higher risk than those whose normal systolic blood pressure was less than 120mm HG.
That risk is similar to people whose blood pressure is high, but who are not taking any drugs to control it, researchers said.
“You’re in as much trouble by the time you are on three medications that achieve excellent control as you are when you have hypertension and it is untreated” Howard said.
“We want to raise the issue that, despite great advances in a pharmaceutical approach, relying solely on this approach is going to come at a dear price of people’s lives”.Blood pressure medications can lead to increased risk of stroke
What about Cholesterol drugs?
Statins are dangerous according to clinical cardiology.
Are you thinking what I’m thinking? Fat-soluble hormones are made from cholesterol! Remember a few minutes ago you read above that fat-soluble hormones can actually pass through that lipid membrane, to get to the cell nucleus to tell the nucleus what proteins to produce. So does that mean if you take a drug to reduce cholesterol that it can damage other parts of the body? Absolutely! Heart failure and hardening of the arteries is not caused by cholesterol. This is a drug to reduce cholesterol. I know you’re thinking that sounds stupid, isn’t 50% of the brain cholesterol? Don’t we make hormones out of cholesterol? Isn’t anyone looking at this? Or do we have a society that’s gone completely insane and they’re taking these chemicals to solve symptoms, which only drive the disease deeper into the body, or is it that the body is just expected to respond to the toxicity for the chemical messenger called a drug? Why are we not looking at the cause? If we reduce the physical, chemical and emotional stressors in our life that would reduce the amount of dis-ease. Again, the body is constantly working to find balance to maintain homeostasis.
Statins inhibit the biosynthesis of selenium containing proteins, one of which is glutathione peroxidase serving to suppress peroxidative stress. An impairment of selenoprotein biosynthesis may be a factor in congestive heart failure, reminiscent of the dilated cardiomyopathies seen with selenium deficiency.
Thus, the epidemic of heart failure and atherosclerosis that plagues the modern world may paradoxically be aggravated by the pervasive use of statin drugs. We propose that current statin treatment guidelines be critically reevaluated.Statins stimulate atherosclerosis and heart failure: pharmacological mechanisms.
Statin therapy is associated with decreased myocardial function.Statin therapy decreases myocardial function as evaluated via strain imaging.
Statin use is associated with an increased prevalence and extent of coronary plaques possessing calcium. The longitudinal effect of statins on coronary plaque composition warrants further investigation.Statins use and coronary artery plaque composition: results from the International Multicenter CONFIRM Registry.
Cholesterol lowering drugs also suppress the immune system. How would they suppress the immune system? Ten minutes ago you didn’t know. But now you know! What are fat-soluble hormones made out of? Cholesterol! If you skimmed past it let me repeat it, fat-soluble hormones can actually pass through that lipid membrane, to get to the nucleus to tell the nucleus what proteins to produce! Cholesterol is what tells the cells to make the IgA protein, this is the protein that enables function of the immune system. If you have suppressed cholesterol do you have appropriate immune function? NO!
Are you starting to see it? It’s like, wait a second, I thought my doctor knew all this stuff, I thought he was up on all the science, I thought he understood how the body actually works! Doctors are giving HRT to help hot flashes, and then next thing we’re asking, where did I get this cancer from? And the doctor says, well, sometimes it’s just bad luck or bad genes, we don’t know what causes it, it just happens! NO! It doesn’t ‘just happen’, there is always a cause.
MSG, a poisonous endocrine disruptor has been linked to neuron death and Alzheimer’s
MSG is used in canned soups, crackers, meats, salad dressings, frozen dinners, baby food and infant formula.
Studies have shown that the body uses glutamate, an amino acid as a nerve impulse transmitter in the brain, and that there are glutamate-responsive tissues in other parts of the body as well.
Abnormal function of glutamate receptors has been linked with certain neurological diseases, such as, Alzheimer’s and Huntington’s Chorea. Injections of glutamate in lab animals have resulted in damage to nerve cells in the brain.FACT OR FICTION? The MSG Controversy Monica Singh Class of 2005 Submitted March 2005 Harvard Law School
Which one do you think costs more in this country, cancer or Alzheimer’s? Did you know Alzheimer’s and dementia cost four times what cancer costs. That’s because people live longer with Alzheimer’s and dementia, so we have to set up expensive facilities to care for them. This is your future. History shows that these diseases were never a common sign of aging before this era of chemicals began in the early 1900’s, when we started treating symptoms with chemicals that interrupt how our body expresses life, is now poisoning our entire system.
Chemical Sweeteners & Formaldehyde
Aspartame, is sold as NutraSweet and Equal.
- It ruins female sexual response and induces male sexual dysfunction
- Aspartame releases methyl alcohol, plus phenylalanine and aspartic acid, both neurotoxins
- The methyl alcohol breaks down into formaldehyde, then formic acid
The 2009 study – Linking formaldehyde with cancers of the blood and lymphatic system reveals that these cancers are far more common, affecting thousands of people each year. Formaldehyde has long been linked to rare tumours of the nasopharynx, which includes the back of the throat, affects a few thousand people each year.
Formaldehyde is recognised as a potent adjuvant which causes foreign proteins to be recognised as antigens by the immune system, triggering immune responses to destroy them. So for this reason, formaldehyde is included in many vaccines.
Would you like the pink stuff or the blue stuff? What’s that, you don’t know? Well, what type of cancer would you like? Actually it doesn’t matter, they both produce the same result, they’re both an endocrine disruptor that damages your tissues.
Let’s look at one of the first synthetic hormones ever made, back in 1938.
Diethlstilbestrol (DES) is a synthetic form of the female hormone Estrogen
DES was prescribed to pregnant women between 1940 and 1971 to prevent miscarriage, premature labour and related complications of pregnancy. The use of DES declined after studies in the 1950’s showed that it was not effective in preventing these problems.
In 1971 researchers linked prenatal (before birth) DES exposure to a type of cancer of the cervix and vagina called Clear Cell Carcinoma in a small group of women.
Soon after, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) notified physicians throughout the country (USA) that DES should not be prescribed to pregnant women.
DES is now known to be an endocrine-disrupting chemical, one of a number of substances that interfere with the endocrine system to cause cancer, birth defects, and other developmental abnormalities. The effects of endocrine-disrupting chemicals are most severe when exposure occurs during fetal development.
This drug was produced in 1938, and handed out to a bunch of pregnant women, and then they look at the population and see that it wasn’t really working, so then they said, don’t prescribe it anymore. Where is the accountability? It was stopped in the USA in 1971 but continued to be prescribed in other countries right up until 1978.
The problem here is, that it didn’t stop with that generation of women. The babies of those women, the second generation, well it turns out that the women who took this drug to prevent problems during pregnancy, that their children have a 3 – 5 times increased risk of breast, testicular and prostate cancers.
In 2000, DES daughters were reported 3 – 5 times more likely to have the more common forms of cervical cancer than those women whose mothers did not take DES.
DES sons are predisposed to testicular abnormalities (i.e. small testes) and failure of the testes to descend into the scrotum, which increases the risk of testicular cancer.
This keeps going, on into the Third Generation!
These are the grandchildren of women who were given DES during pregnancy and whose mother or father were exposed to DES in utero.
If epigenetic changes occur and are heritable, studies of the DES-exposed third generation have implications for the influence of environmental endocrine disruptors on human health and evolution.
A possible increased risk of infertility in older third generation daughters was also noted. The NCI study proves limited evidence of an increased risk of birth defects in the sons and daughters of women who were exposed prenatally to DES.
An increased risk of ovarian cancer in the daughters of women exposed to DES in utero was observed.
This is the result of just ONE synthetic hormone that was taken off the market 40 years ago!
Things haven’t changed. We’re seeing a massive rise in diseases from taking these chemicals that interrupt the communication between the brain and tissue cells.
Think about this? What are the breast cancer rates right now? Have we won? Have you heard about the War on Cancer?
The war on Cancer was declared by US President Nixon in 1980. Well it turns out that breast cancer rates have increased 300% since that war was declared! Again, are we winning? The population has only increased 38% since 1980 in that time, so this to me was astounding!
DES was only one drug that I used as an example of generational damage. We have a number of factors inside of our environment, none of them are genetic, they’re all environmental, this is all a change in communication between the brain and the tissue cells. Stem cell Biologist, Dr Bruce Lipton says, our genes do not cause disease, it’s our environment. When we change our environment diseases disappear.
There was an article in the Lancet 23 years ago, talking about the failure of the War on Cancer, they were saying, look, the entire approach to cancer is looking at an obsession with cure rather than preventing early disease.
Failure to appreciate that local invasion and distant metastasis rather then cell proliferation itself are lethal, obsession with cure of advanced disease rather than prevention of early disease, and neglect of the need to arrest preneoplastic lesions may all have served to make victory elusive.The war on cancer, The Lancet, Volume 347, Issue 9012, 18 May 1996, Pages 1377-1381
How can you prevent something if you’re not looking at the cause?
How can you prevent something if you have no idea what normal is?
How do you prevent cancer when we’re taking drugs that we find out 30 years later are actually increasing cancer rates?
What would happen to the litigious society we now have? Hey doc, about that HRT you put me on for hot flashes, it turns out that it might be responsible for my breast cancer, lung cancer, ovarian cancer or my brain cancer! Ask yourself this, can you go back and sue for that?
Chemical exposures during early stages of development can disrupt normal patterns of development and thus dramatically alter disease susceptibility later in life.
Endocrine disrupting chemicals (EDCs) interfere with the body’s endocrine system and produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, cardiovascular, metabolic and immune effects in humans.Endocrine disrupting chemicals and disease susceptibility.
The HPV Vaccine – Gardisil
Human papilloma virus (HPV). Apparently Gardisil is going to prevent cervical cancer, a cancer that never existed before they began poisoning the population! Vaccines are an endocrine disruptor, and there is no science to establish their safety as they are not subjected to the same testing as drugs.
The following study was published in the journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology in August 2015.
PURPOSE OF REVIEW: The cause of primary ovarian insufficiency (POI) is multifactorial. Known causes include external factors such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy, exposure to endocrine-disrupting chemicals, infections that lead to a permanent insult to the ovary, autoimmune conditions, and genetic causes. An association between the quadrivalent antihuman papilloma vaccine (HPV4) and POI was recently suggested.
SUMMARY: The mechanisms responsible for POI are not yet fully understood. Although case reports cannot establish causation, awareness of a possible link between HPV4 and POI will help to identify and manage future cases that may arise.A link between human papilloma virus vaccination and primary ovarian insufficiency: current analysis.
An increasing number of cases of POI post-HPV4 are being reported. Possible mechanisms for the suspected effect of HPV on female reproductive function are a toxic effect or an autoimmune response.
The trigger could be the vaccine immunogen contents or the adjuvants, the latter are used to increase the immune reaction. The adjuvant in HPV4 contains aluminum.
Animal models have shown aluminum exposure to inhibit expression of female reproductive hormones and to induce histologic changes in the ovaries. Specific genetic compositions may be more susceptible to developing an autoinflammatory syndrome after exposure to an environmental factor.A link between human papilloma virus vaccination and primary ovarian insufficiency: current analysis.
The Gardasil vaccine, not only is it not protecting, it is causing damage that we now know of. Do you think it will harm the next generation, if there is a next generation, because these vaccines are harming fertility. We know that the last synthetic hormone, DES, has affected three generations so far! How far will this continue to go?
Again! They’re injecting kids not knowing what is going to happen in the years to come. They’re finding a rise in cervical cancer, could this be generational from DES? How do we know, they refuse to do the research. So is this new HPV vaccine going to turn into the next generational disaster? When are they going to stop? How about this, let’s stop injecting women and children when there is no proof that this vaccine prevents warts in boys and cervical cancer in girls? This mentality of shoot first and ask questions later has to stop!
Vaccines induce an inflammatory response, that’s their job! But what if simply creating an inflammatory response does not provide immunity? What if that inflammatory response does more damage than the actual virus itself would have caused in the first place?
Unfortunately there is more politics in medicine than there is in parliament and vaccines have become a toxic political subject with all debate being shut down. This is unfortunate, because it’s not about being pro or anti, it’s about the safety and protection of our children. The bottom line is that we all want the very best for our children, and any doubts around safety need to be addressed using independent science that is not funded by the very industry that manufactures them. Until then, doctors must allow ‘informed consent’.
Th1 and Th2 Immune Responses
- is responsible for normal reactions to anything in your environment, from bee pollen to animal dandruff, dustmites, chemicals and food
- is kept robust and healthy by your gut flora
- triggers a cell mediated response from mucus membranes
- if your gut flora is abnormal, your Th1 responses become increasingly disabled
- Th2 vaccines create a puncture wound so the body needs an immediate response, this is why there’s no lifetime immunity from vaccines, because the proper immune memory cells are not built
- inflammatory reaction = inflammatory cytokines (we are training the body to respond to inflammation)
- allergies and intolerance’s
Th1 immunity is a cellular and humoral response. You get it through the mucus membranes, then you innitiate a response and build immunity that you pass on to your offspring, so instead of passing on the synthetic hormone drug, you pass on protection, not toxicity.
The Th2 response, which you get from vaccines, is a chronic inflammatory response. Now, if this is true, if we’re interrupting the communications between the brain and the cells, and teaching people how to increase their inflammatory response by changing their tissue cell communications, wouldn’t we see an increase in inflammatory conditions? Let me think? Brain inflammation, autism, inflammatory bowel disease (IBS), Crohn’s disease, lung inflammation, asthma, breathing problems, bronchitis and so on. We do see that don’t we?
Bisphenol A (BPA)
BPA, I mentioned this one earlier, but let’s look closer. Over the last 40 years, remember when that synthetic estrogen (DES) came out in 1938? Well now we’re seeing in that 40 year timeline male sperm counts falling, does that sound like an endocrine disruptor to you? Absolutely!
Because the ratio of Th1 and Th2 cells is closely correlated with the outcome of many diseases, controlling exposure to major sources of BPA and NP may protect patients from developing diseases caused by undesired Th2-dominated responses.Enhanced interleukin‐4 production in CD4+ T cells and elevated immunoglobulin E levels in antigen‐primed mice by bisphenol A and nonylphenol, endocrine disruptors: involvement of nuclear factor‐AT and Ca2+
This article is saying that we’re creating a Th2 response with vaccines and it shows that we’re causing a Th2 inflammatory response in our population. This is not a warning, this is about becoming aware and looking around.
Have you seen the movie 6th Sense? Where the kid says, I see dead people? Come shopping with me! I see dead people. I see swollen glands, I see cortisol mediated weight distribution, I see swelling, I see bruising everywhere. This is not a healthy population.
A comprehensive literature search has implicated several environmental factors associated with the development of ASD.
These include pesticides, phthalates, polychlorinated biphenyls, solvents, air pollutants, fragrances, glyphosate and heavy metals, especially aluminum used in vaccines as adjuvant.
Importantly, the majority of these toxicants are some of the most common ingredients in cosmetics and herbicides to which almost all of us are regularly exposed to in the form of fragrances, face makeup, cologne, air fresheners, food flavors, detergents, insecticides and herbicides.Environmental factors in the development of autism spectrum disorders.
When you see little kids in the sun and their mums are spraying them with toxic sunscreen, and we know that humans have lived in the sun for millennia, you have to wonder. Are we making our kids sicker? After all, the sun is where we get vitamin D isn’t it?
Antibacterial soaps, wipes and that dry skin gel we rub on our hands, these things are all endocrine disruptors that damage the body. Whatever happened to plain old soap and water?
(January 2016) Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are highly heterogeneous developmental conditions characterized by deficits in social interaction, verbal and nonverbal communication, and obsessive/stereotyped patterns of behavior and repetitive movements……In developed countries, it is now reported that 1%-1.5% of children have ASD, and in the US 2015 CDC reports that approximately one in 45 children suffer from ASD.
Despite the intense research focus on ASD in the last decade, the underlying etiology remains unknown.
Genetic research involving twins and family studies strongly supports a significant contribution of environmental factors in addition to genetic factors in ASD etiology.Environmental factors in the development of autism spectrum disorders.
Genetic factors aren’t there, but we do know that environmental factors are the key, because it’s not genetic, it’s genetic expression. We know that somewhere between 2025 and 2032 one in two children will develop autism if current trends continue. Currently, one in two children already have a chronic illness or disease.
How to Have Healthy Hormones
Understand what you need to do. Look at the body as a whole. Our endocrine system is a group of communication devices that the body uses to tell itself how and when to generate tissue cells and create health. We don’t know how all of this actually works, science is still discovering new things. Ask yourself, what did we know in the past, what do we know now?
Industry has introduced all of these endocrine disruptors into the population, they said they were safe, they said they were effective. The human body is a healthy brilliant ecosystem. When we add things that don’t support that ecosystem we make it sick or worse, kill it. The human ecosystem has been around for hundreds of millennia, it’s already a good design. All we need to do is appreciate it, work with the body structures and not try to second guess it with a synthetic communication device.
If you’re thinking what can I do? How can I manage to stay healthy in a toxic deficient environment? You’re taking multiple pharmaceuticals and you’re just not healthy. Do you think anyone taking 12 – 14 different drugs (like the average 60+ year old), do you think they take them and say, “I’m taking 14 prescriptions, damn I’m healthy”. NO! This is just psychotic.
Step One – Healthy Nerve Supply
Get your nervous system checked. Your nervous system controls everything. Find a chiropractor and have regular adjustments so you don’t have trapped or pinched nerves blocking communication between the brain and the body.
Step Two – If you’re taking drugs fix the problem!
Find out why your doctor has given them to you. More than likely they’re going to be for a stress response. Physical, chemical and emotional stress causes elevated blood pressure, blood sugar issues, pain (which is a signal that there’s a problem), Type 2 Diabetes, depression and anxiety (which are a gut issue) etc. When you look for the cause you’ll be able to get your body healthy without driving the disease deeper into the body.
Step Three – Healthy Saturated Fats
Get some healthy saturated fats. Avocados, organic fermented cheeses, dark chocolate, organic free range eggs, wild caught salmon, nuts, chia seeds, extra virgin olive oil, coconut oil, organic full-fat yoghurt.
Step Four – Eliminate Toxic Meats
Toxic meats, especially chicken along with pasturised dairy are serious endocrine disruptors. Remember, you eat what the animal ate because the toxins are stored in their fat tissues! When we wrap it in plastic and microwave it, it becomes poisonous. Most people don’t know this!
Step Five – Eliminate Processed Commercial Foods
Canned foods often contain a BPA plastic liner. Processed foods are full of artificial hormones, fillers and chemicals. It’s really easy to make most of these foods with fresh ingredients, and they will taste better too.
Step Six – Eliminate Pesticides
Buy organic food as much as you can.
It all seems too simple doesn’t it. All you really need to do is stop putting endocrine disruptors into your body. Then, rebuild the system, remember, this is an ecosystem, don’t put anything in that your grandparents wouldn’t recognise.
Eat food that is consistent with your personal ecosystem.
- Organic plant based diet (locally grown, seasonal foods)
- Healthy fats such as coconut and olive oil
- Fermented vegetables
- Juice vegetables
- Blend fruits
- Raw dairy
- Reduce omega 6 and increase omega 3
The key is, healthy fats and fermented vegetables, if your gut has been compromised by endocrine disruptors you will need to repopulate your gut bacteria because it’s been poisoned.
You’ve probably heard that inflammation is bad. Chronic or otherwise, inflammation is a clue that tissue is being damaged, inflammation is a healing process. So next time you hear the words, you’ve got inflammation, correct that person and say, no I have tissue damage from ‘something’ and my body is doing everything it can to heal. The sad thing is that people don’t know this, and instead they say, well, I’m going to take this non-steroidal anti-inflammatory to stop the healing process! That makes sense doesn’t it? It’s also going to interrupt my cartilage production. Sadly, this is how we feel today, we are living in a world where there is a quick fix drug for everything, when true healing lies within.
The Five Keys to Health and Healing
- Proper nerve supply
- Regular exercise
- Proper nutrition (if man makes it don’t eat it)
- Sufficient rest
- Prayer and Meditation
This is what you need. Live within your design parameters and you’ll live to 120 with all of your faculties in tact and when it’s time, you can die in peace, not pain, warm in your bed from old age!
