Avoid Hormone Disruptors



We automatically believe that all products we buy are fully tested and safe to use, but slowly we are realizing that there are hidden dangers everwhere. How are we going to ensure the safety of our families in the face of all the toxic chemicals, cell phone emissions, exhaust fumes etc.

The effect of many of these toxins is to disrupt our hormones. Many man-made synthetic chemicals and environmental pollutants are now known to be "Endocrine disruptors", some, referred to as "Xeno-oestrogens", mimic oestrogen and are causing imbalance between our own oestrogen and progesterone levels. The xeno-oestrogens concentrate in the fat of the animals that we eat and eventually end up in our own fat. They are present in our foods from the moment we are born, (and affect us even in the womb) in our air and our water and are capable of disrupting biological processes. Our cells contain oestrogen receptor sites which the xeno-oestrogens lock onto and because the hormones in the body interact with its organs and systems as well as with each other in highly complex and interdependent ways, they can disrupt the workings of the body as a whole.

We cannot live on a desert island, but perhaps, just by being aware of products that are potentially hazardous to our health we will automatically make safer choices for our families. We should all be in the business of sharing information and knowledge with others, thus contributing to a safer world.

Toxic chemicals can be found in virtually all creatures and in all environments. An estimated 1,500 new chemicals enter the market every year, in addition to the tens of thousands of chemicals already in commercial use. Very few have been adequately tested for the threats they may pose to wildlife and humans over time.

The most common Xeno-oestrogens which we can come across on a daily basis:

  1. Petro-chemicals are known to be xeno-oestrogens, (we are exposed to car emmissions on a daily basis). We use these every day in our homes; these include vaseline based skin creams, many common detergents, wax floor polish and paints.
  2. Synthetic Hormones and oestrogenic compounds are now found in meat, much of which is hormone fed, cattle are given D.E.S. (diethol stilbestrol) to fatten them, and chickens are fed hormones to promote growth.
  3. Highly poisonous pesticides such as DDT or DDE which are still used throughout Africa and other 3rd world countries. Other pesticides in use include dieldrin, toxaphene, mirex, heptachlor and kepone as well as hundreds of other herbicides and pesticides, all of which have an ability to mimic natural oestrogen.
  4. Polycarbonated plastics found in baby bottles and water jugs, cling wrap and polystyrene. Plastics are found in every Supermarket.
  5. Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) used in the manufacture of electronic devices.
  6. Synthetic man-made oestrogen drugs , produced by the drug companies… the contraceptive pill and HRT. These are even advertised as saving lives and being good for our health !.


Prior to the chemical revolution, whenever in nature there were high levels of oestrogen produced in the female body, there were correspondingly high levels of progesterone produced, as unopposed oestrogen is highly dangerous. Progesterone is the only antagonist to oestrogen, it keeps oestrogen under control. Unfortunately now this balance between the two hormones has been upset by the xeno-oestrogens.

As a result, a condition called Oestrogen dominance is becoming evermore prevalent as the balance in nature is affected. USING NATURONE PROGESTERONE CREAM WILL BALANCE YOUR HORMONES ONCE MORE.

Here are a list of actions you and your family can take to reduce your consumption and use of toxic chemicals and other threats to our safety and health.

  1. Buy organic cotton clothing, fruits and vegetables, and other goods.
  2. Wash and peel fruits and vegetables whenever possible, particularly if they are not organic and free of pesticides and weedicides. You can add a little vinegar to the water to wash them.
  3. Try to eliminate food allergens as these cause undetected sensitivities and the elimination of them usually leads to great improvements in your health. The most common of these are Wheat and wheat products, dairy products, peanuts and citrus fruits. Red meat is also hard to digest.
  4. Commercially available dairy , chicken (as well as egg), red meat and pork products usually contain hormones, anti-biotics or bacteria. Try to substitute with organic or free range.
  5. Eat small amounts of seeds and nuts on a daily basis.
  6. Drink filtered or purified water
  7. Read about the harmful ingredients in toothpaste, shampoos, and cosmetics, and choose accordingly.
  8. Stop using pesticides. Green up your garden using natural methods:
    • Grow plants that are native to the region where you live.
    • Use traps and biological controls such as natural predators.
    • Use disease- and pest-resistant plants. In your garden, add insect-repelling plants such as basil, chives, mint, marigolds, and chrysanthemums.
    • Use compost and mulch to improve soil health and reduce the need for pesticides and fertilizers.
  9. Use environmentally friendly products in your home:
    • Reduce or preferably eliminate the use of chlorine bleach.
    • Use simple and inexpensive cleansers such as soap, vinegar, lemon juice, and borax (see Recipes below).
  10. Avoid air fresheners and perfumed products. Freshen your air by opening windows, using baking soda, cedar blocks, or dried flowers.
  11. Reduce use of plastic containers and food wrappings:
    • Store food in glass containers.( The lids can be plastic if it does not touch the food, or use glass jam-jars for leftovers)
    • Do not microwave food in plastic.
    • Do not use cling wrap in direct contact with food, and request the same from your supermarket or butcher.
  12. Urge your schools and communities to use non toxic cleaning products and to stop using pesticides


And, finally, boost your immune system with vitamins, minerals and wholefood nutritional supplements.
