Xenoestrogens are invisible but they are big endocrine disruptors (hormone imbalancers). They can steal your natural hormone balance, cause fatigue, and in addition have reproductive (weight gain, estrogen dominance, cancers, PMS, PCOS, hypothyroid) and developmental consequences. Experts say that in a typical day, sadly, we are exposed to more than 700 xenoestrogens in chemically made toothpaste, deodorant, sunscreen, food preservatives, the lining of cans that hold food, and many kinds of plastic.
They are foreign estrogen which pass into our cells from plastic water bottles, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, plastics, fuels, car exhausts, dry cleaning chemicals, industrial waste, meat from animals (which have been fattened with estrogenic drugs), and countless other household cleaning and personal products which many of us use every day, probably even the makeup you have on right now.
I suggest you cut these out as best you can. Always remember we absorb 60% of what we apply to our skin. If you wouldn’t eat it – don’t put it on your skin. Buy food and cosmetic items that are natural, BPA and phthalate free for you and your household.
I hope these tips help you to find your way to a more energetic and less lethargic you. Remember without enough vitamins and micro-nutrients (hopefully from the food you eat), your body’s systems ability to perform their job is disabled, and you won’t have enough physical, emotional, or mental energy to make it through the day. You are what you eat!
