Chemicals in the environment, called endocrine disruptors, can interact with and change the way our body's hormones naturally function.
Hormone disruption can manifest in a variety of signs and symptoms including:
• Obesity and difficulty losing weight.
Where do “Endocrine Disruptors” come from?
Toxins, xenoestrogens, and other chemicals come from a variety of sources:
• Plastic food and beverage containers.
What are Xenoestrogens?
Xenoestrogens are synthetic natural compounds that imitate estrogens, often exerting a strong effect on estrogen receptors.
How can you reduce your exposure to endocrine disruptors?
• Don't microwave plastic containers.
For most of us, it is impossible to completely eliminate exposure to chemicals that disrupt our metabolism and hormones.
In addition to reducing exposure, there are various actions you can take to eliminate toxic burden from your body.
How can you support the elimination of toxins from your body?
• Seek naturopathic assessment and treatment.
