Xenoestrogens

Xenoestrogens are a type of xenohormone that imitates estrogen. They can be either synthetic or natural chemical compounds. Synthetic xenoestrogens include some widely used industrial compounds, such as PCBs, BPA, and phthalates, which have estrogenic effects on a living organism even though they differ chemically from the estrogenic substances produced internally by the endocrine system of any organism.

    Menopause describes the permanent cessation of ovarian function, which results in the cessation of ova release, uterine lining creation, and subsequent uterine lining shedding. Menopause typically occurs in women during their late 40s or early 50s, and signals the end of the fertile phase of a woman's life. Menopause is a change that every woman will experience if she lives long enough. Menopause is not a disease but many women reach it physically exhausted and their bodies are unable to cope with the changes that should naturally occur, hence take hormonal replacement therapy (HRT). 

  • hypothyroid

    Hypothyroidism is caused by insufficient production of thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland. Cretinism is a form of hypothyroidism found in infants. From a naturopathic perspective the causes of hypothyroidism are not only nutritional deficiencies of vitamin and mineral precursors to thyroid hormones but also due to environmental contaminants that inhibit thyroid hormone production. The 2 big ones are microplastic and fluoride. Herbal medicine, nutritional supplementation, dietary and lifestyle approaches can treat the thyroid naturally, without the use of pharmacological drugs.
