ANTI ESTROGEN SOLUTIONS

Anti Estrogenic Antidotes
Because of the overloading of the endocrine and lymphatic system of estrogen three has been a number of reproductive cancers occurring at a higher then normal rate…..if you look up the stats this didn’t happen til the 60’s when cancers of all types started to become more apparent in the USA and Canada…. What changed? The exposure to pesticides had definitely increased, the exposure to toxic pollutants had definitely increased, the removal of foods from the diet which were maligned to be a problem but in fact were not, and new food and dietary guidelines were introduced that were in fact cancer causing, such as soy and margarine, food additives and chemical preservatives, plastics that contained foods and detergents which are xeno-estrogenic characteristics. This means these are synthetic estrogens that will in fact react the same way as plant estrogens but in a higher concentrated levels that will bind to what are known as receptor sites ….these are areas of the body that are triggered by hormones and enzymes which cause a chemical reaction or trigger a signal in the body to perform whatever function that is required. These estrogens coming from with out, are extremely dangerous because of the way they accumulate in the body, and the reaction they cause in the body. In the case of estrogen it will lead to cancer, there are over 50 years of research an data to validate this, and to this day the end result has been the same since we have introduced highly estrogenic foods into the diet, males are becoming more mentally and physically dysfunctional, and women are breaking down more rapidly then there predecessors did. By being exposed to dish soap, latex, fuel oils, carpeting, clothing , fabric softeners, clothing made with synthethics, exhaust fumes from all petro products, including the Idea of biodiesel or bio fuels, this to will exacerbrate a bad condition already existing, and will compound the effect that much more…

 

So how do we heal this condition? How do we reverse the effect? Can we reverse the effect ?…there are herbs, supplements, and vitamins that actually regulate estrogen and remove the excess out of the body, via liver. And through other means of expulsion from the body. There are foods we can eat as well as foods to avoid that will assist us in the regulating of the overloading of the hormones in our system. I will give a list of foods herbs and supplements that will assist in this endeavor to keep us hormonally balanced :….Some of these will be used as a tea, others will be consumed and others used as a supplement….and in some cases used together to remove whatever is afflicting us hormonally….

 

Vitamins:

Zinc

Iodine

Selenium

Magnesium

Sulfur

 

 

 

Herbs that can assist in the removal of estrogen from the body

Watercress

Turmeric

Garlic

Onion

Shallots

Parsely

Mint

Celery Root

Rosemary

Siberian Ginseng

Gota Kola

Thyme

Milk Thistle

Dandelion

Lady’s Thistle

Summer and Winter Savoury

Ginger and Galangal

Balm of Gilead ( balsam poplar )

Perilla

Olive Leaf

Oregano

 

Supplements that will remove estrogen or block it’s effect

NAC

L Cysteine

Methionine

Taurine

 

 

Foods that can remove or block estrogen:

Nuts

Seeds

Omega 9 oils

Avocado

Rice Bran Oil

Wheat Germ Oil

Papaya

Pineapple

Berries

Citrus fruits ( Bioflavonoids )

Oats and Barley ( Whole )

Broccoli and Broccoli Sprouts

Onion Sprouts

Cabbage

Cauliflower

Kohl Rabi

Kale

Parsley

Celery Root

Grass fed Animals ( grain fed will encourage hormone imbalancing due to the excess of omega 6 in the fat rather then 3 ( grass fed cows have 15 times more omega 3 then fish )

Ocean caught fish ( make sure you increase garlic or sulfur based supplement with Vitamin C to offset any potential mercury or lead poisoning of the fish.

Ground flax seed ( due to the fibre content of the lignans which will bind to the estrogens ) Make sure you grind it fresh not store bought

 

Herbal Teas

Any tea that will support the liver and the endocrine system should be used to assist in the removal of any unwanted toxin or increase the antioxidant levels so that the body is able to be more efficient in the removing of unwanted pathogens or hormones

Schizandra berry

Fo Ti Eng

Rehmannia Root

Jiagolan

Milk thistle

Nettle

Dandelion

Burdock

Sarsparilla

Perilla

Parsley

White Pine

Birch

Siberian ginseng

 

Make sure all teas are drunk without any processed sugar or artificial sweetners…Use Xylitol from birch trees or Unpasteurized honey

 

®®RAW MILK ( not pasteurized ) due to the CLA and Vitamin D content

®®Grass fed Cow’s Butter

®®Seed and Nut Milk

®®Almonds ( due to the phosphorous in it to assist the liver in detoxing the estrogens out)

®®Walnuts ( omega 3 which block estrogen conversion of omega 6 )

®®Pumpkin Seed ( due to the zinc content in regulating hormones )

Modulation of aromatase activity by diet polyphenolic compounds.

J Agric Food Chem. 2006 May 17;54(10):3535-40

Authors: Monteiro R, Azevedo I, Calhau C

Estrogens are involved in physiological actions related to reproduction, body fat distribution, and maintenance of bone mass and are also related to the pathogenesis of estrogen-dependent cancers. The aim of this work was to study the effect of polyphenols on estrogen synthesis. The effect of polyphenols and polyphenolic-rich beverages on aromatase activity was tested in JAR cells (a choriocarcinoma cell line) through the tritiated water release assay. Some of the tested polyphenols inhibited estrogen production, chrysin being the most potent. Additionally, we observed that red wine, alcohol-free red wine, green tea, and black tea (200 microL/mL) significantly decreased aromatase activity. No effect on aromatase expression, as assessed by western blotting and RT-PCR, has been detected after 24 h of treatment with any of the flavonoids under study. In conclusion, polyphenols are able to modulate aromatase activity and, consequently, estrogen synthesis. The knowledge of such interference may help to clarify some of the biological properties attributed to polyphenols and may be useful in prevention/treatment of estrogen-dependent disorders.
