What Air And Sitting Do To Your Hormones And 4 Strategies to Protect Your Estrogens.

2019-02-06T13:13:55-05:00

Hormones don’t just go “south” from stress, poor food choices, or genetic bad luck. They are affected by what you inhale. And how long you sit. Even in your teen-age daughter or your sweet old granny. I recently did an amazing show with Dave Asprey from BulletProof  on hormones and the environment. Listen to it here. Air pollution exposures and lack of exercise have historically been linked to heart and lung disease. But now, both air pollution and excessive sitting are being scientifically shown, to adversely affect your estrogens. Gynecologic science has known that hormones rule reproductive and menstrual health or [...]

Birth Control Hormones Increase Your Risk of Breast Cancer And More!

2019-02-24T16:51:16-05:00

(updated 2/2019) Enemies Towards Your Breasts Did you know that birth control pills and other contraceptive methods that use synthetic hormones, could be enemies toward your breasts? Women take birth control pills (or hormonal IUDs and shots) the world over. Providers hand out hormonal contraception scripts like M&M’s. Thus, we assume they’re safe (as do many of our providers). But research from the mid 1970’s onward is showing this is not necessarily true. On one hand, birth control pills may be helpful and protective for some conditions. For example, the use of the pill reduces the risk of certain cancers, such [...]

What’s in your chicken? How non-organic chicken is contributing to hormonal issues like polycystic ovarian syndrome, breast cancer and more. So you’re trying to eat less red meat, and in doing so you are eating more chicken. You eat out often, so you order salads with chicken, or chicken and veggies, and you think that you’re doing good things for your body and health. You may get lunch several times a week at Whole Foods. You assume the chicken at the salad bar is completely healthy, because, hey, it’s Whole Foods! Think again! You are what you eat. Chickens are what [...]

The Unjustified Fear Of Estrogen

2019-04-03T10:06:58-05:00

Hearing about estrogen replacement, many women unconsciously cover their breasts with their arms. The word “estrogen” makes them think of the “enemy”— breast cancer. Scientists and doctors often feel the same way. This is understandable as a large body of data supports the widely recognized ways that estrogen can “fuel the fire” of estrogen-positive breast cancer cells. But it’s not the whole and accurate estrogen story. A shifting paradigm about the complex terrain of estrogens is showing that sometimes estrogens can prevent breast cancer, and sometimes even help treat breast cancer. Did you know estrogen has been used to treat breast [...]

Estrone – A Most Maligned Estrogen

2019-04-03T10:07:20-05:00

Estrogens have had a bad rap for a long time but they are major signaling molecules in the body that have many beneficial and complex activities. There are actually over 60 estrogenic-acting estrogens in the human body, though 3 are the most famous Charlie’s Angel estrogens: Estradiol (the strongest “purest estrogen” that delivers signals to most estrogen receptors), Estriol (a gentler estrogen that sends anti-cancer signals) and, Estrone (known as the bad sister estrogens like the bad sisters in Cinderella, that is more predominantly produced in menopause and is often regarded as a pro-carcinogenic (cancer-causing) estrogen. Are all estrone type estrogens nasty? Maria wrote and asked [...]

Estrogen Naïveté Needs to Wake Up

2018-11-15T14:01:35-05:00

Estrogen’s a real complex and intriguing hormone. Medicine and science have been confused about estrogen for a long time now. Estrogen is sultry and ancient. She was the first hormone that existed on earth. She’s been around longer than most other signaling molecules (much of life inside the human body occurs with one cell sending an email to another; this is a signaling system). Estrogen is critical for many life processes and in most life forms. The estrogen emailing system in the fruit fly, gorilla, men and women and boys and girls is all the same. Each of us needs estrogen [...]
