compounds so named because 'xeno-' actually means 'strange' or 'alien' or 'guest', They are environmental
compounds, usually derived from petrochemical sources, that mimic the body's own estrogen. In other words, whether
in the body of a man, woman or child, they function like estrogens but are far more potent than those the body
For example, xenoestrogens can affect sex changes in
fish, at a dose of only one nanogram. "(A nanogram is a billionth of a gram, which is roughly the same proportion
as a grain of sand to an Olympic swimming pool.) In other words, this tiny amount
turns boy fish into girl
Think you might not want that going on in your body, or
the body of your children? Then use the following recommendations to reduce and/or eliminate xenoestrogens as much
1. Product purchases: Replace products with
toxic ingredients such as cosmetics, nail polish and nail polish removers, toothpaste, synthetic perfumes,
household cleaning agents, pesticides, fungicides and herbicides. If you can't do that all at once due to economic
constrains, then purchase nontoxic ones as you need to replace them (they may be labeled "green" products). Make
certain your old, toxic ones end up in the hazardous waste recycling station. This includes various prescription
drugs, especially those containing hormones.
Organic Food. Buying and eating organic foods is crucial to
your well being, so choose them whenever possible. As a bonus, you'll also avoid GMO's this way.
3. Non-Organic Food Preparation. To reduce
pesticides on non-organic food, wash it in ozonated water for 20 minutes before cooking, or peel and wash it with
diluted vinegar to remove surface pesticides. Discard outer leaves of leafy vegetables.
Storage. Make sure you store your food in glass or pyrex
containers, and eliminate plastic containers for this purpose, as they are all made from
5. Microwaving. Microwaving food is never
good for its nutritional content. For one thing, it changes the molecular structure. However many cooks, especially
when they're so busy, are loathe to give up that way of food preparation. So while you make that adjustment make
sure you don't microwave food in plastic containers. Also, make certain you do not use plastic wrap to cover food
for microwaving. Then move your food prep over to a convection oven. A small one works great for many preparation
6. Laundry. Eliminate fabric softeners, which
impregnate clothes with petroleum products that wearers absorb from clothes through skin and into/their
7.Water. Filter your water. According to the
Environmental Protection Agency, some 700 chemicals are now commonly found in drinking water. However, safety
standards exist for only 83 contaminants. You can find out the status of your local drinking water, at
8. Detoxification. With professional support
and guidance, undertake a regular detoxification program to allow your body to release stored toxins. To be
effective against pesticides and xenoestrogens, you will need to use a program which creates a bodily fat exchange.
That's because such a program allows the fat molecules in your body that have stored the toxins to be eliminated
and replaced with new, uncontaminated fat cells. The key is to choose a program that is designed both to detoxify
and to keep elimination active in the process. Otherwise you'll just release toxins into your circulation where
they'll keep getting pumped around and you'll poison yourself even further.
Be aware that the government will not regulate
pesticides out of the food supply because it is dominated by the chemical industry. Understand that, like it or
not, and right or not, it up to you to be pro-active in eliminating these toxins from your body.
Also, understand that the change needed to reverse this
