As our commitment to you, each year the cleanse will be slightly different and focus on a different system.
This year we will be focused on estrogen. Guys…don’t worry, estrogen can be a problem for you too! In fact, if you keep reading you will find out why estrogen is a problem for everyone.
What Is Estrogen
If asked, the common answer would be that estrogen is a female sex hormone that is responsible for the development and regulation of the female reproductive system. But even Wikipedia recognizes that estrogen can also refer to “any substance, natural or synthetic, that mimics the effects of the natural hormone.”
This means that there are many environmental substances that bind to our estrogen receptors and mimic estrogen’s effects. Now if you are postmenopausal and taking a natural estrogen support to manage hot flashes this could be considered a good thing. But what if you are a middle aged men or woman, or a child? What are these environmental factors doing to those individuals?
What are Xenoestrogens
Xenoestrogens are a sub-category of the endocrine disruptor group that specifically have estrogen-like effects.
Many of us don’t think twice about the bubble bath we use, the make-up we apply in the morning or the lotion we use on our kids skin. We have heard that organic food may be better, but gosh…it is so darn expensive. The reality is that all of these choices can contribute the toxic load that is accumulating in all of us on a daily basis.
What Harm Can Xenoestrogens Cause?
When xenoestrogens enter the body, they increase the total amount of estrogen resulting in a phenomenon called estrogen dominance. Xenoestrogens are not biodegradable, so they are stored in our fat cells. Build up of xenoestrogens have been implicated in many conditions including: breast, prostate and testicular cancer, obesity, infertility, endometriosis, early onset puberty, miscarriages and diabetes.
Estrogen Dominance Symptoms in Women
Are you a Pear Shape? –
Most peri-menopausal woman will see the effects of estrogen dominance in their difficulty losing weight, especially hips, butt and thighs. They will also have PMS symptoms such as bloating, water retention, breast tenderness.
Certain conditions such as ovarian cysts, endometriosis, uterine fibroids, fibrocystic breast disease and cervical dysplasia have also been linked to estrogen dominance. Excess estrogen can also be related to cellulite and varicose veins.
Now I look like an Apple?
Postmenopausal woman will see the effects of too much estrogen starting to allow weight accumulation around the middle. Estrogen dominance will also cause symptoms such as hot flashes, mood imbalances, low libido and depression.
What About Men?
Don’t worry guys – Estrogen doesn’t forget you! Men tend to mimic the post menopausal woman with fat accumulation due to excess estrogen accumulating around the middle, and also the chest.
Excess body fat in men causes an unhealthy rise in estrogen because the fat cells are actually involved in turning testosterone to estrogen! This process is called aromatization.
This hormonal imbalance has also been implicated in breast, uterine and prostate cancer.
What are the Most Common Sources of Xenoestrogens
- Skin Care (parabens, BHA/BHT, fragrance, triclosan)
- bubble bath, soap, shampoo, conditioner, lotions
- make up
- Hand sanitizer, antibacterial soaps
- Plastics (BPA, BPS, phthalates, polychlorinated biphenyls PCS)
- water containers, plastic lunch or storage containers, plastic dishes
- Polychlorinated biphenyl ethers (PCBE)
- flame retardants – mattresses, clothing, especially pajamas
- building materials – paint, foam
- Food (pesticides, herbicides, insecticides, red food dye, Butylated hydroxyanisole / BHA (food preservative)
- processed or packaged foods (especially those containing food dye, or in plastic packaging
- non organic foods
- Drinking Water
The run off from agriculture, landfill sites, livestock, industry and yes even woman taking ethynyl-estradiol a form of synthetic estrogens used in birth control pills are making our way into our water supply. Many studies have shown the negative effects to aquatic life living in waters that has been contaminated from these xenoestrogens. Fish that live in these estrogen rich environments are at greater risk of death, disease and intersex traits.
Now put that water in a plastic container, and you have a good dose Estrogen in a bottle.
As you can see from the list, estrogens are everywhere and like it or not, we are exposed to them everyday.
Stop The Presses!!!
Okay…so now you are telling me that I can’t eat, can’t live in my house, can’t shower and can’t drink water. Tell me the good news!!
The reality is that no matter how clean we live, you will always be exposed to xenoestrogens and other environmental chemicals. This cleanse is not meant to make you feel overwhelmed, or afraid…it is meant to educate and empower you to make better choices. Your job is to do what you can. If the only thing you take from this is to stop drinking out of plastic…Great! That choice over the next 50 years will definitely reduce your xenoestrogen exposure.
If you are ready to take your health to the next level, join us for our 11 day estrogen detox. Not only will you lose weight and feel great, you will also learn easy ways to keep your body free of these toxic chemicals.
Because we are all busy, this year’s format will be a little different. You will be emailed your package which will include your 11day recipe list. You will be also be emailed ways to enhance your cleanse like using Estrium to support the elimination of estrogen as well as information on intermittent fasting.
The difference this year will be that the daily encouragers will come in the form of short 2 min videos. Topics will include…short exercise videos, quick meal ideas, information on drinking containers, what skin care products to use, what foods to eat…and much more.
The cleanse starts April 4.

What if I am not concerned about estrogen? Can I still do the cleanse?
As always the cleanse is just about cleaning up your diet. Even if I haven’t convinced you that estrogen exposure is a problem for all of us, you can still participate in the cleanse. This is a whole food cleanse…which is good for all of us!!!
