Detoxification for Women

The two ovaries are almond-shaped glands, located on either side of the womb.  They produce the female sex hormone, estrogen.  Estrogen is a powerful hormone with receptors found in the brain, breasts, heart, blood vessels, vagina, uterus, liver, bones, skin and gastrointestinal tract.  Estrogen hormones attach to receptor sights like a key fits into a lock and as you can see affects many aspects of the body.  Estrogen also controls the development of the female body and plays an important role in the menstrual cycle.  An excess of estrogen, known as estrogen dominance, is often created by the liver’s inability to metabolize and effectively excrete old worn-out hormones and/or xenobiotics.  Xenobiotics are internal chemicals found in the human body that were not produced by the body or are not naturally consumed through the diet.  Xenobiotics are dangerous compounds found in environmental toxins including pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, fertilizers, personal care products, air pollution and all drugs to mention a few.  Xenobiotics are very dangerous to the endocrine system as they attach at estrogen receptor sites and function as contaminated weak estrogens.  They are toxic, fat-soluble compounds that can disrupt and destroy the endocrine system.  Many zenobiotics are carcinogenic and must be converted by the liver into a water-soluble compound that can safely be eliminated from the body.  If the liver is over-burdened, congested and does not have the nutritional support to eliminate these poisonous substances, they are stored in the liver which can eventually lead to liver damage or they are circulated through the body and placed back into fat tissue.  Excessive toxic fat-tissue produce estrogen and promotes dangerous estrogen dominance.  The liver processes all estrogen including the estrogen in hormone replacement therapy.  It is imperative to cleanse and nutritionally support your liver everyday with alkalizing, nutrient-dense foods. 

The pancreas rests behind the stomach, is linked to the small intestine and produces the hormone insulin which is used to escort sugar from our blood stream through the cell wall, into the cell for energy.  The pancreatic juices and enzymes assist in the absorption of essential nutrients.  When there is no production of insulin from the pancreas, diabetes mellitus known as Type One Diabetes results.  Type Two Diabetes results when the pancreas is producing the hormone insulin, however the body is incapable of uptake.  This is also known as insulin resistance.  Blood sugar levels build up and the pancreas is triggered to produce more and more insulin.  People who are overweight are more likely to have insulin resistance, because fat and toxicity interferes with the body’s ability to use insulin.  The best way to support the pancreas is with foods that are rich in enzymes, because most of the digestive enzymes are made by the pancreas.  This can cause an over-burden on the body.  The constant demand to over- produce digestive enzymes by eating chemically processed, over-cooked anti-foods depletes the body of vital nutrients and metabolic enzymes.

The thyroid gland is located at the base of the neck and is responsible for releasing the hormone thyroxine, which tells your body how quickly to burn calories.  The thyroid sets the metabolic rate for all cellular activity.   The thyroid gland is regulated by the mineral ratios of calcium and potassium.  If a person has too much calcium in the tissues, in relationship to potassium, the result is hypothyroidism.  If there is too much potassium in the tissues, in relationship to calcium, the result is hyperthyroidism.  Mineral levels and ratios are a delicate balance that can be upset by heavy metal or chemical contamination.  There is a major connection between low thyroid and low adrenal function.  Adrenal insufficiency can exacerbate a thyroid problem and make it much worse.  

The average woman gains 20 pounds when she transitions through menopause.  You can avoid this and all of the other symptoms associated with menopause by giving your body the support it requires, daily.  Stress is a contributing factor in weight gain in menopause.  Stress hormones can prevent weight loss because they signal the body to go into storage mode.  This is known as the “famine effect” which is essentially your body preparing for a food shortage.  This is another reason to eat nutrient-rich foods every time you eat and to avoid nutrient-depleting foods.  Adrenal health is a key factor for experiencing a healthy menopause transition, so you feel supported by your endocrine system rather than imbalanced and depleted.  Our steroid hormones are essential for staying youthful and for quality longevity. 

The 14 Day Gourmet Cleanse and Rejuvenation Program is designed to teach you how to maximize your nutrient levels, which support your liver’s detoxification process and keeps your endocrine system running smoothly!

Toxic exposure begins in the earliest stages of life as the fetus is contaminated by poisons passing through the placenta. The average newborn in the U.S. has over 206 toxic chemicals present in the tiny body the day of birth. The toxic onslaught continues as poisons are passed from the mother to the newborn via the breast milk. The typical baby and her family are surrounded by poisoned air, food and water. 

Fetuses now develop in the womb contaminated with as many as 287 toxic chemicals.  More than 630,000 babies born in the U.S. are at risk for brain damage and early learning difficulties due to Mercury exposure in the womb.  Mercury levels in umbilical cord blood is 1.7 times higher that the level in the mother’s blood.

Hereditary Toxins Spur Scientific Concerns – Read

Over the past eight years of teaching the “14 Day Gourmet Cleanse & Rejuvenation Program, I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of women.  Many women come to me before getting pregnant to learn how to detoxify themselves before conceiving.  Many women come to my workshops because they have been trying to conceive and have been unsuccessful. 

Mother’s Protect your Daughters
Hormonally active environmental agents such as phthalate metabolites (found in hair and nail care products) may alter the course of pubertal development in girls, which is controlled by steroids and gonadotropins.  Many ingredients found in personal care products are dangerous for young girls and women.  They are known as zenobiotics and they disrupt normal hormonal pathways.  Hormones are messenger molecules that provide instructions and regulate cellular activity.  Toxins interfere with metabolic pathways.  For example, DHEA, produced in the adrenal gland, is a major steroidal hormone and precursor for making other essential hormones including testosterone, estrogens and 150 metabolites.  After the age of 35, DHEA levels begin to drop.  New scientific studies show that DHEA levels are beginning to decline at a much earlier age due to the effects of toxins found in our air, food, water and environment.  A decrease in DHEA levels are related to an increase in heart disease, high cholesterol, depression, osteoporosis, diabetes, immune disorders, mental problems and the aging process.  Common sense shows, for proper body function, healing, regeneration and anti-aging we must reduce the amount of toxic burden on the body.  If we want our children to grow up and live a healthy adult life, we must protect them from harmful substances and teach them how to use food to maintain optimal health.
