of Hormone Imbalance
The hormonal health of any woman depends upon the delicate dance
of progesterone and estrogen. Estrogen is meant to be the predominant
hormone in the first half of the menstrual cycle and progesterone
the predominant one in the second half. However, for most women
in the industrialized world this is not the case.
are many causes of hormone imbalance, but at the base of the problem
is something called Estrogen Dominance - which means there is too
much estrogen and not enough progesterone present in the body. There
are many symptoms that result from having low progesterone
follows is a look at some of the common ways in which medicine and
industry have tampered with the natural balance of our hormones.
We as woman have used these products blindly at the cost of our
hormonal balance, overall health and longevity. Some of these may
be obvious to you, while some may come as a surprise. Either way
the hormonal imbalances that result should not be taken lightly.
They contribute to the rise in cancers, especially breast and ovarian
cancers, heart disease, depression, pms and more.
common causes of hormonal imbalance and estrogen dominance:
HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy)
Non organic and estrogen pumped animal products
Tell me more...
Pill was first introduced in the 1960’s as an effective method
of birth control. It was touted as true sexual liberation for women.
The first Pill was composed of mainly synthetic estrogen and proclaimed
“safe” by the FDA (US Food and Drug Administration.)
research however, was badly flawed. The entire basis for the FDA’s
consent was the result of clinical studies conducted on 132 Puerto
Rican women who had taken the Pill for one year or longer. The fact
that there were five women who died during the study without any
investigation into their cause of their death was seemingly overlooked.
the mid-1970s it became obvious that women on The Pill were
dying from heart attacks and strokes at an alarming and
much faster rate than those not on the Pill. A newer and supposedly
“safer Pill” was then introduced with a lower dose of
and progestogens are often confused with progesterone. However they
are nowhere near the same! Progestins and progestogens are synthetic,
man-made and have an altered chemical structure. They are commonly
used in today’s contraceptive Pills. The one thing they do
manage to do is to maintain the lining of the uterus thus making
them effective contraceptives.
at what price?
be clear – if you are currently on the Pill – you are
effectively trial-ing a drug. Its safety and long term effects have
not been conclusively established!
are only now discovering the price they have been paying for their
sexual freedom. It is now over 35 years on since the introduction
of the Pill and only now are the long term effects beginning to
show. Progestins and progestogens are highly toxic to the body,
resulting in some of these known side effects:
high blood pressure
of course … low progesterone levels.
HRT (Hormone Replacement Therapy)
is a common issue of confusion to most menopausal women.
To quote Leslie Kenton, author of Passage to Power,
who is anybody will tell you that menopause is an estrogen-deficiency
disease and that you will need to take more estrogen as you approach
mid-life. What may surprise you is this: not only is most of such
commonly given advice on menopause wrong, a great deal of it can
be positively dangerous."
1966 a certain Dr Robert Wilson wrote a book called Feminine
Forever where he popularized the belief that menopause was
an estrogen deficiency disease and he pioneered the use of unopposed
1975 it became obvious that the use of unopposed estrogen therapy
drastically shortened the lifespan of its users. Women who
had used estrogen for seven years or longer were now 14 times more
likely to develop cancer.
The pharmaceutical industry then introduced a new 'safe' hormone
replacement therapy or HRT - a combination of synthetic progestins
and progestogens and estrogen. Sounds a lot like the Pill story
New England Journal of Medicine in 1995, published a study which
revealed the startling effects of HRT. The study involved 121,700
women. The women who used HRT for more than 5 years, to offset the
symptoms of menopause also increased their chance of developing
breast cancer by 30 – 40%. In women between the ages of 60
– 64 that statistic rose to 70%. The study also concluded
that women using HRT were 45% more likely to die from breast cancer
than those who did not make use of the drug or had used it for less
than 5 years.
much for the unopposed estrogen and synthetic progestins and progestogens
this: In many countries the water supply is recycled and mixed with
fresh water. Since synthetic hormones are not filtered out of the
water the levels of estrogens in our drinking water are rising all
the time – every time a woman on the Pill or HRT goes to the
toilet in fact!
are some of the common ways that medicine has tampered with the
natural balance of hormones, here are some the ways that industry
has tampered with the same delicate hormonal balance.
such as pesticides mimic the hormone estrogen. Fifty-one chemicals
have now been identified as hormone disruptors. Approximately 2
billion tons of pesticides are used the annually the world over.
In undeveloped countries the use of pesticides is still largely
unchecked and … guess what – that is where we get a
lot of our food supplies. It’s plain to see why this is wreaking
havoc on our bodies. It is this fact that has led many people to
switch to an organic diet.
chemicals that cause the same challenges are DDT, dioxin and PCB’s
(polychlorinated biphenyls.) Dioxin is the by-product of the manufacture
of chemicals using chlorine and includes:
dry cleaning fluids
– polystyrene and clingwrap in particular
are used in:
called petrochemicals, they contain high levels of xeno-estrogens.
Xeno-estrogens basically means they mimic estrogen in your body.
They fill up all the estrogen receptor sites in your body meaning
that even the good estrogen can’t get through to perform its
role properly. The result – HORMONE IMBALANCE!
Again, this is why many people have moved over to household cleaning
products that don’t contain these chemicals and are environment
animals that are slaughtered for our food chain are fed estrogenic
steroids to fatten them up. These estrogens go straight into our
blood stream causing a further rise in estrogen levels. Another
study linked the increase of our current disease rates to eating
a diet high in the fat and meat from these estrogen-fed animals.
Again, it is this fact that has led many people to switch to an
one may come as a surprise to you, but many cosmetics are made with
petrochemicals. This means that you are putting the same thing on
your skin as you would in your car – something that is petrol-based
– not very appealing is it? It’s not surprising then
to realize that these ‘moisturizers’ are actually drying
out your skin - actually causing more wrinkles!
Even more importantly they are further putting your hormones out
other estrogenic antioxidants
this is why many people have moved over to moisturizers that don’t
contain these chemicals and are environment friendly.
if all of the above where not enough, stress also plays a big part
is reducing our levels of progesterone which results in …
too much estrogen.
how: Progesterone is the “mother of all hormones.” It
is the precursor and essential raw material out of which the body
created ALL THE OTHER HORMONES. As the precursor to all the other
hormones in the body, the adrenal glands and adrenal hormones are
no exception. If you encounter a mildly stressful situation your
body draws on its progesterone to produce the hormones (adrenal
corticosteroids) to counteract it. These are the hormones that protect
against stress. BUT, if your body is in a constant or permanent
state of stress it can’t provide enough progesterone to be
converted into anti-stress hormones and the result is adrenal exhaustion
and no left over progesterone for other normal body functions.
I'm sure after reading through all this you'll realize why I say
"Women the world over have been duped." Who would've thought
that the Pill, HRT or the cosmetics, household cleaners or the food
we eat are actually doing us and our families harm!?!
