Why should someone care about endocrine-disruptors?
The effort to walk away from damaging chemicals becomes easier when one sees what happens when disrupted hormones lead to major life-altering consequences. The endocrine system is a huge deal – when in balance, everything is wonderful. When slightly out of whack, life is Hades. We didn’t need a thousand individual studies to list off all the symptoms Bisphenol-A can cause; like ADHD-type symptoms, obesity, devastating sex/reproductive changes, brain impairment and so much more.
It passes the blood brain barrier, accumulates and is way more dangerous at lower levels than previously thought. When the endocrine glands get messed with, it’s dethroning the regulator of all those hormonal functions. Here are 4 natural ways to remove endocrine disruptors from your body:
1. Get Some Probiotics
Not talking celebrity endorsed yogurt here. Fermented foods like kimchi, natural sauerkraut and kefir. A refrigerated, concentrated probiotic supplement helps. Drink kombucha.
Bifidobacterium breve and Lactobacillus casei were found to extract BPA from the blood of mammals and were excreted out through the bowels.
Beneficial bacteria strengthen the gut and break down chemicals like BPA so they can be cleared out. As an added bonus, they also break down pesticides, another major endocrine-disruptor!
2. Drink Black Tea
Black tea is found to reduce BPA toxicity. Drink loose leaf – black tea has many, many other health benefits besides reducing BPA.
3. Sweat it out
When researchers started testing different ways that BPA bioaccumulates in the body, they discovered that BPA was detected in sweat and thought that method should be considered in newer research projects as a way to track accumulation, like when urine is tested.
They found that: “Induced sweating appears to be a potential method for elimination of BPA.” Many wellness centers now have steamless saunas to help with sweat detox.
This is a flavonoid found in fruits, veggies, leaves, tea and whole grains. Like black tea, it ameliorates toxicity from BPA. It is also available in supplement form. It should probably come as no surprise that quercetin is also great for allergies!
