Why Is This Not Just A Woman’s Problem Anymore
Despite what you might be thinking, hormone imbalance and “dis-eases” are not just a woman’s problem. Why? The organ that plays a gigantic role in your Estrogen levels does not even produce Estrogen…but it is responsible for eliminating or not eliminating it from your body.
Almost all hormone issues are not caused by excessive estrogen production, but inefficient elimination or deactivation of hormones in the liver.
Your liver is responsible for clearing your body of excess or non used items. To make is simple, think of your liver as having two oil filters inside. We will call them filter 1 and filter 2. Filter 1 is first to act. It will either make things less toxic or more toxic than the original substance that entered into it.
Filter 2 takes the less or more toxic substance and makes it safe for your body to eliminate through the urine or feces. The major difference between filter 1 and filter 2 is the speed at which they work and the different nutrients your liver needs for them to do their jobs.
We are going to focus on liver filter 2 and how it eliminates estrogen from the body. Estrogen comes in various forms. We will call them Estrogen 2, Estrogen 4 and Estrogen 16. To make it very simple Estrogen 2 is good or nice to your body. Estrogen 4 and 16 are bad. They are very active forms of estrogen and are more likely to cause dis-ease if in this form.
Here’s the important part for today. In order to make Estrogen 2 (good kind) we need a substance called Indol 3 Carbinol. You can get this compound in your body by taking a high quality supplement containing Indol 3 Carbinol.
The really great news is Indol 3 Carbinol is not some rare compound only found in a magic berry from the Amazon. You can find an abundance of Indol 3 Carbinol naturally in cruciferous vegetables (Broccoli, Brussel sprouts, Cabbage, Cauliflower and Turnips)
What I really love about vegetables is their ability not only to remove deficiencies and toxicities from your body, but at the same time they supply you with sufficiency and purity.
Who would have thought that vegetables would be so important to your hormone balance and healthy Estrogen metabolism? May be that’s why the American Cancer Society raised the recommended servings of vegetables per day to 6 to 11 per day instead of 4 to 5 per day.
And best of all, I have never seen a disclaimer of ill side effects due to eating too many vegetables.
The tip to take home is make sure you’re eating at least 6-11 serving of vegetables per day to provide enough Indol 3 Carbinol for Estrogen 2 (good) metabolism and elimination from your body.
Are Pollution, Chemicals (xenoestrogens) and Life Style Responsible For The Rise In Hormone Related “Dis-eases?”
I have been studying health and wellness since 1995. Since that time I have been reading a lot about and personally observing a scary trend in our Country. The rate of hormone related dis-eases has been steadily rising. How can this be? Don’t we have the best health care in the world… the most abundant food supply on earth… more medication available than any other country in the world? We do, but this does not seem to be working. Take a look at what the research has proven.
“The incidence of breast cancer varies greatly around the world, being lower in less developed countries and greatest in the more developed countries.”
Stewart B. W. and Kleihues P. (Eds): World Cancer Report. IARCPress. Lyon 2003
“Women in the United States have the highest incidence rates of breast cancer in the world.”
Ries LAG, Eisner MP, Kosary CL, et al. SEER Cancer Statistics Review, 1975–2000.
Bethesda, MD: National Cancer Institute, 2003.
What did that just say? The more developed the country you live in the more likely you are to get breast cancer? Women in the US have the highest rates of breast cancer in the world?
Have you ever thought about the fact that we have gotten so far away from what’s naturally good for our bodies in this country…that we are creating dis-ease through the very things we are using to treat them? Medications, synthetic hormones, pesticides and other toxic chemicals may actually be making us worse. If not what else could it be? If you know please tell me?
It’s not genetic! Only a minute percentage of these problems are related to your genes. Research has shown that only 5%-10% of breast cancer is caused by the “cancer gene”. Read it for yourself…
“About 5% to 10% of breast cancers are thought to be linked to changes (mutations) in certain genes. The most common gene changes are those of the BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes.”
American Cancer Society
The Altered BRCA-1 gene appears in only 5% of the 182,000 breast cancer cases that develop. BRCA-2 is responsible for the same amount. Than mean over
Our way of life is not only affecting women, but men as well. Due to estrogen dominance look what’s happening to men.
“Since 1938, sperm counts of men in the U.S. and 20 other countries have plunged by an average of 50%. At the same time, testicular cancer has tripled.”
I hope you see that what we have been doing is not working. You must understand the causes of disease to protect yourself. To help you, I will be sharing with you how to remove the deficiencies/toxicities from your life and body and replace them with sufficiency/purity. That is the only way to get well.
P.S. If you think what we are currently doing in the US is working…meaning people are getting healthier and happier please take a moment to look around. We are heading for disaster. This can be stopped. I will share with you how over the next four weeks, so check back weekly.
P.P.S. In order not to overwhelm you I will show you how to restore sufficiency and purity in bite sized pieces. Please share this information with people you care about. We must stop this downfall.
I have been studying health and wellness since 1995. My studies have led me to research not only the latest health information available, but I also studied the diet our ancestors ate during the Paleolithic period thousands of years ago. Believe it or not, there are actually studies on the Paleolithic and hunter/gather societies and what they ate. Great advancements in science and technology have been achieved over that last 10,000 years, but some of these advancements seem to be causing more harm than good. Technology has made our nation the most advanced in the world. We have an abundance of hospitals, medications, doctors and no shortage of food…if you really want to call what many of us eat “food”.
When I look at the research from studies documenting the health and lifestyles of humans 10,000 years ago versus today, I discovered something scary. The only thing that has happened is we have gotten sicker, and managed to create some “dis-eases” that did not exist years ago. How could we be getting sicker and creating dis-ease? What has changed? I was able to quickly eliminate a cause that we have been brainwashed with, the reasoning that says, “ it’s genetic or it runs in my family.” Bad genes are not to blame, and this is why…
In all the research related papers and books that I have read, I found…
1. That our genes have changed less than 0.02% (two hundredth of a percent) in 40,000 YEARS!
2. The Paleolithic hunter/gathers did not have many of our modern illnesses… they had no hospitals or medications available…and their genes were virtually identical to ours today.
Since we have the same genes now that we had 40,000 years ago, what is different? I will tell you…their diets, movement, level of activity, exposure to toxins and emotional stressors…so…basically their lifestyles were the complete opposite of ours.
I will explain the differences in all of these factors and how it affects our health in the near future, but for this post we are going to focus on diet and how it affects the health of our guts (intestinal digestive tract) and ultimately the health of our bodies.
In a nut shell this is how our fiber deficient, nutrient deficient diets are destroying the health of our guts and our bodies.
One thing you must know is that our bodies work just like the world around us. Our environment is damaged and destroyed by excess pollution. Just as our body/internal environment is damaged and destroyed by excess pollution. The pollution in our bodies comes mainly from processed foods which are deficient in nutrients and fiber.
Our guts are the first line of defense and up to 70% of the bodies lymph tissue surrounds the gut. Why would you need 70% of your immune system surrounding your gut? The gut is one of the first areas where things have the opportunity to enter your body. If something toxic gets through your gut and into the body you need to be able to eliminate it or fight it.
Here is how the gut works… you need “good” bacteria to ferment and break down your food so it can be absorbed. “Bad” bacteria also lives in your gut and acts like a parasite living off the food you eat. So if you don’t have the “good” bacteria in your gut then toxins easily pass through the gut into the body. Now your lymph system and immune system must take care of it.
Toxins pass through the gut = Immune Response = Pain or Sickness.
So there’s the problem. If your gut is unprotected and you don’t have healthy bacteria you are going to be sick.
What should you do? Increase your fresh fruit and vegetable consumption, unless you’re eating 70%-80% raw fruits and vegetable every day you will have a gut imbalance. I know that sounds like a lot, but there are several, time effective ways to bring these foods into your diet (I cover this in the report.) The “good” bacteria come from fruits and veggies. The “bad” bacteria come from breads, cereals, processed foods, soda and the other man made foods we consume. The foods you eat either make you more pure or more toxic. It’s just that simple.
The traditional western diet will cause the “bad” bacteria to flourish. The “bad” bacteria will actually eat the food you eat, so they can keep multiplying and take over your gut. This is gross but, what your body is left with is the waste or “bad bacteria poop” they excrete back into your gut. Left unchecked this cycle will “snowball” and continue to make your body more and more toxic and sick. This condition is correctable, but if undiagnosed and untreated it can reach a point of no return!
How healthy do you think you will be…
If you are living on a diet of “bad bacteria poop?”
There are four steps to restoring the healthy bacteria in your gut:
1. Remove the bad (such as harmful chemicals from our environment, allergens and Pathogens)
2. Replace the “bad” with the “good”
3. Repair (a special diet may be need to restore intestinal health which includes villi and microvilli health)
4. Replenish (add nutrients like probiotics, fermentable fruits and vegetables to support the growth and repair of healthy bacteria flora)
There is a way to test for leaky gut. If you would like to find out if you have “leaky gut” I can help. I am also making available to you the steps you will need follow to Remove, Replace, Repair and Replenish your gut. I have made these steps available to you in a free report.
If you would like the report or more information on how to restore health to several of the most common GI issues such as: Leaky Gut, Inflammatory bowel, Candidacies, Parasites or Dysbiosis please feel free to email me at email@example.com. I have many protocols available to help you restore purity and sufficiency to your body.
Eat Well, Think Well, Move Well
I have been studying health and wellness since 1995 and this is a complaint I hear from over 90% of my patients when they first come into our office. They all suffer from a lack of energy, and the question is how do they get their energy back? I don’t blame them for wanting to feel more vigorous, I think all of us could use a little more pep in our step.
I have a habit of constantly observing people everywhere I go, airports, grocery stores, gyms, malls, restaurants, etc. and I am seeing the same thing not just in my clients but in everyone….
They look like they are dragging a 100 lb weight behind them.
This blows my mind! How can everyone look so tired and run down all the time? It took me several years of studying to uncover the main culprits of chronic fatigue, and I did not find it in my postgraduate medical textbooks.
If you look back in the medical text books from ten or fifteen years ago (I did) you will not see anything on chronic fatigue. How could that be? This “dis-ease” known as Chronic Fatigue did not exist as little as fifteen years ago! I had to discover what was so different now compared to ten or fifteen years ago.
I quickly eliminated several factors. Our nationwide chronic fatigue problems could not be due to a lack of doctors, hospitals, or prescription drugs. Why? Because we have more doctors, more hospitals and more drugs available to us now than at any other time in history, and we have more of these resources than any other nation in the world! Yet our disease and sickness rates are still climbing higher and higher each year. Did you know that the US is ranked 37th out of 39 countries in the world in the overall health of our population?
Then it hit me…I know the reason why so many people are suffering from chronic fatigue, and the reason is…
No one has told you how to be healthy and reclaim your energy. Health really is a very simple concept we have just been lead to believe it’s not. You must restore purity and rebuild your body’s resources and remove the buildup of toxins in your body. There are three concepts you must follow if you want to restore health and re-energize your body. You must…
- Eat well
- Think well
- Move well
If you did all three things at the same time for a period of time…you could not beat health and energy off with a stick.
I am going to focus on what I have researched and found to be the most important aspect of overcoming chronic fatigue. These recommendations are based on careful study of multiple clinical research articles, and my own functional medicine testing and results. Reversing your health starts first with your nutrition. After reading case study after case study, I have found that the three main factors contributing to chronic fatigue are dysfunction in three vital systems:
- Liver (toxicity/stress)
- GI (colon/digestive tract)
- Adrenal stress or dysfunction (over or under functioning adrenal glands.)
There are three critical steps to get your liver, GI and adrenals back to health and I have condensed the necessary steps to overcome chronic fatigue in my FREE four page report Winning the Battle Against Chronic Fatigue.
My purpose is to provide you with the information necessary to restore health and wellness to your life. I am tired of seeing sick and suffering people who have lost their hope, that is why I will send you my report FREE of charge just e mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive your free digital copy of this breakthrough report. I have to warn you the side effect of following these recommendations will not only be increased energy but significant weight loss has also been reported.
1. Drink 1 cup of hot water with 1/4 lemon and 2 pinches of cayenne pepper first thing upon waking (on an empty stomach). is very simple but you would be amazed how many people say they can’t live without it once they start!
2. Use a ‘dry brush’ to massage your entire body before getting into the shower. Use a circular motion and work towards the heart. Then shower or bathe. Facilitates circulation and toxic elimination through the skin.
Take a warm bath with Epsom salt added to soothe, relax and detox. Additionally you may rub on the salt with a warm, wet washcloth in bath or shower. Very invigorating.
3. Jump on a rebounder (mini trampoline) for 3-5 minutes at a time. This shakes up your whole body and is particularly useful stimulating your lymph drainage system, thereby moving those toxins OUT!
4. Try your own ‘hydrotherapy’ in the shower by alternating hot/cold. This stimulates circulation and your immune system. You can also do a sauna/cold shower/sauna etc., if you belong to a gym. Not for the squeamish! But it is very invigorating! You’ll feel like a million bucks when you’re done. Of course, just a sauna and a shower are beneficial as well.
Detoxification is a continuous physiologic process that your body depends on for survival.
There are complex cellular detoxification mechanisms that are constantly at work for you
all day, every day. Natural and synthetic chemicals are processed by this complex system of
cells, organs, and organ systems to keep you healthy in the face of a virtually constant
barrage of toxic material. Our program is an excellent tool to improve your detoxification
in the short term. The following suggestions will help you keep your body’s toxic burden
low and your detox mechanisms working for the long haul.
Notes on Plastic
Heating foods in plastic releases harmful chemicals.
You should never heat food in plastic…use glass or
To aid in lymphatic drainage, use a dry, natural fiber
shower brush or loofah to massage your entire body
before you shower or bathe. Start at the toes, and
gently scrub using circular motions toward your heart.
Public tap water is often contaminated. Drink and
cook with only pure filtered water and consider adding
a filter to your shower.
Although the convenience of microwaves is
indisputable, this method of heating can disrupt
chemical linkages in otherwise healthy foods and
decrease the nutritional value. Heat on a stovetop or
oven whenever possible and use a cast iron pan. Avoid
Teflon and synthetic non-stick coatings.
One of the best ways to increase your metabolic
activity is to simply use your body. Daily exercise has
innumerable benefits including building lean muscle
mass which helps you burn more calories at rest.
Consider jumping on a mini trampoline for 3-5
minutes a day to give a boost to your health and
vitality. Sweating also releases toxins.
In September, 2009, LifeVantage was granted a patent for Protandim® as a method for lowering the amount of C-reactive protein in the body. C-reactive protein is widely considered by doctors and researchers as an indicator of the amount of inflammation present in the body. Elevated base levels of C-reactive protein are considered risk factors for diabetes (high blood sugar), hypertension (high blood pressure), and cardiovascular (heart) disease. This patent further underscores the actions of Protandim® as a tool against not only oxidative stress, but also inflammation. This is the third patent for Protandim®.
Protandim® as an effective natural therapy for chronic pain
Glutathione - a Natural anti-inflammatory antioxidant enzyme - is produced by your body, and works extremely well as an anti-inflammatory for joint pain, when you are young.
However, the Older you get, the less Glutathione your body makes. Your body’s production of this perfect protein drops with age, in every case. The question then becomes, “How do you get your aging body to start producing Glutathione again, and help alleviate the chronic pain that often accompanies aging?”
Glutathione pills and juices are not the answer. They’re ineffective. Glutathione is a protein that gets digested as normal food, and never makes it into your system. Protandim® offers you a solution validated by scientific research that activates your own cells’ DNA to produce 300% more Glutathione in your body. Protandim’s® effectiveness is clinically proven and patented, as a natural anti-inflammatory.

If you are considering starting a family, this can be both an exciting and yet worrying time. If you know that you have fibroids, this can add an extra burden of worry in addition to those felt by all would-be parents.
For most,getting pregnant with fibroids may not be as big an issue as you are expecting. You will be pleased to know that the majority of women with fibroid tumors do go on to have normal, healthy pregnancies, followed by a normal delivery. However, it cannot be denied that problems can occur in a small number of cases.
Having uterine fibroids is not a “natural” state. It is undeniably a sign that something is wrong within the body. Therefore, if you are aware that you have uterine fibroids and are hoping to conceive, it may be sensible to explore your options to get rid of your fibroids naturally. Surgery or hormonal treatment would rarely be recommended art this crucial time, but natural treatments to shrink fibroid tumors can be very beneficial for your overall good health.
Many women prepare their bodies for pregnancy by eating a healthy diet, exercising more, having health checks and perhaps taking appropriate vitamin and mineral supplements. Taking steps to shrink your %fibroids to minimize the possibility of fibroids having any possible negative impact makes perfect sense.
For some,getting pregnant with fibroids can be difficult if your uterine fibroids are in a position which obstructs the passage of sperm, for example at the entrance to the fallopian tubes or just inside the cervix. In a small number of women who have submucosal fibroid tumors, these can distort the uterine cavity making implantation impossible, or they can sometimes cause a very early miscarriage. In pregnancies which are progressing normally, problems can occasionally occur closer to delivery. A larger fibroid may bring birth forward by 2 or 3 weeks or may bring about the need for a cesarean if the fibroid is low down and partially obstructing the cervix.
Fibroids are a condition which respond very well to natural remedies and they are an ideal condition to treat because as they are so rarely life-threatening. It makes complete sense to try out a natural treatment for fibroid tumors before resorting to surgery or any of the hormonal drugs which can cause their own side effects. In the case of pregnancy, most women want to ensure that they are giving themselves and their baby the best possible chances and naturally, a fibroid-free environment is best for both.

You’ve been going to the gym everyday and working your butt off. You drink protein shakes, eat loads of chicken, and see some muscle gain. Your happy. Then you notice the new guy at gym is getting big real fast. He only started 3 months ago and he’s putting on size like there’s no tomorrow. What the???
Obviously he’s on roids and your starting to wonder whether you should chuck in the towel or jump on the train. It’s tempting. Why work so hard when you’re only going to see mediocre results compared to the other guy.
Steroids obviously work, but are they worth it? And are they guaranteed?
The Technical Mumbo Jumbo:
Hundreds of distinct steroids have been identified in plant, animals, and fungi. The steroids associated with muscle growth are called anabolic steroids.
Anabolic steroids are a class of natural and synthetic steroid hormones that promote cell growth and division of tissue and bone. They not only effect muscle tissue but various other organs as well. Testosterone is the most potent natural anabolic steroid.
Testosterone is primarily secreted in the testicals of males and the ovaries of females. It is the principal male sex hormone. On average, the adult male body produces about twenty times the amount of testosterone of an adult female’s body.
Testosterone naturally increases in males at puberty and causes these effects:
- Increased libido and erection frequency
- Pubic hair extends to thighs and up toward umbilicus
- Facial hair (sideburns, beard, mustache)
- Chest hair, periareolar hair, perianal hair
- Increased tendency for violence or aggressive
- Subcutaneous fat in face decreases
- Increased muscle strength and mass
- Deepening of voice
- Growth of the adam’s apple
- Growth of spermatogenic tissue in testes, male fertility
- Growth of jaw, brow, chin, nose, and remodeling of facial bone contours
- Shoulders widen and rib cage expands
The side effects of using anabolic steroids vary depending on the type of drug, dosage, duration of use and individual sensitivity and response.
To be straight with you, there are more stories and myths about steroid effects than you can poke a stick at. But some of the more common and documented effects include severe acne, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, impotence, and mood swings.
So if you think you can handle that, then you’re all set… Well, not really.
Besides the shrunken testicals, people who take large doses (like what’s needed for muscle gain) can lose control of their emotions and become irritable and really aggressive. Little things can make them hysterically angry. This is what is called “roid rage”.
A case study published in the Australian Medical Journal (165:222-26) reviewed the evidence concerning the effects of anabolic steroids on the mind.
The case centered on a 29-year-old bodybuilder who beat his wife to death using a weapon described as a claw hammer. While he committed this horrific act, his four children were in another part of the house. He then shot himself in the head. Before this incident, his home life had been described as ??happy.??
This man had used steroids off and on for years, and seven weeks before the murder, he had used a steroid stack consisting of Winstrol-V and sustanon, both injectable steroids. A later urine test showed that he also used Valium, a muscle relaxant and anti-anxiety drug.
This doesn’t mean if you take steroids you are going to lose it and become an angry incredible hulk. But it definitely rings warning bells.
More Bad News - The problems don’t stop when you stop taking roids either. People who use steroids can develop a dependence on them. That means they will go through withdrawal when they stop using. They can feel sick to their stomach, have headaches, sweat a lot, feel dizzy and be depressed.
Also, They are illegal - (In case you were wondering):
Steroids are legal for use by veterinarians and doctors but it is illegal to sell or buy them on the street. When steroids are sold on the street or in a gym, they are often mixed with other things which only increases your risks.
Steroids are also banned from amateur sports like the Olympics and most professional sports. Several Olympic athletes have lost their medals after they were tested and found to have used steroids to bulk up.
Are they Guaranteed:
Steroids are going to increase your muscle mass - Hands Down.
That doesn’t necessarily mean your chest and biceps are going to pop out of your shirt first. There are some cases where users experienced very little gain on their chest and massive gain on their shoulders and traps. Who else wants to become the next hunchback? Not me.

The ghastly news is that tea, the enormous British beverage, is just as bad as coffee. It contains roughly 70 mg of caffeine per cup and just about 100 mg per mug. Conversely, it also contains tannin, an extra nasty, which stops the assimilation of nutrients, zinc and iron in particular. Similar to coffee, tea is addicitve for many people and can also cause unpleasant side effects such as constipation.
Drinking tea with a meal will shrink the assimilation of iron from vegan sources by one-third, whereas a glass of fresh orange juice, full in vitamin C, would boost the iron absorption two-fold. Vegetarians and vegans need their irontherefore they must not drink too tea or they will seriously deplete their iron reserves.
Let us now then examine what alternatives there are for people.
Herbal teas Weight Loss Tablet are a respectable alternate. As opposed to traditional Indian or Chinese leaf tea, the majority of the natural variants are free of caffeine and tannin, and can be both detoxifying and soothing. A excellent natural tea ?look-alike? is Rooibosch Eleven O?Clock tea, known as Rooi tea or Redbush in Australia and New Zealand, which looks just like normal tea when ended with milk. Furthermore it has been shown to relax muscles and even help sick babies.
Interestingly, people seem to enjoy it far more than normal tea when they start to drink it regularly. Also please be aware that there are a lot of other natural teas for people to consume, so make sure that you check them out. Our Diet Pills current best are Milfords Raspberry and Ginseng tea, Fennel, Lemon Verbena, and Mixed Berry tea.
So that’s it with fizzy drinks but what about pop and soda?
Until very recently we only had to really worry about cola based drinks, , unfortunatley the reality is thar there is a massive variety of fizzy drinks to choose from.
Apart from caffeine there is also sugar to take into account, going on 8 teaspoons per can of cola, or the chemical substitutes, and other additives. Alas many youthful people get hooked on these drinks early on in life as the ?ad men? would have them believe the drinks are ?cool? and will augment their look.
We are all a large amount better off with Natural Appetite Suppressants the good variants of fizzy drink, which mercifully are given huge space on our supermarket shelves. Appletise, Ame, and Irish Spring are all good quality examples. Or you can simply dilute some fruit juice with some fizzy bottled water yourself.
