Lower your estrogen levels by learning the causes of xenoestrogen exposure and what healthier options are available.

Overexposure to xenoestrogens, which are environmental estrogen-like compounds, can lead to estrogen dominance, a condition that negatively impacts your mental, physical and emotional health. Although xenoestrogens are everywhere, and complete avoidance is impossible, you can markedly lower your estrogen levels by purging the top culprits found in your home and replacing them with the healthier options listed below.

Products to Purge:

-Plastic (water bottles, food containers, cling wrap, cutlery etc.)

-Styrofoam plates and cups

-Foods packaged in metal cans

-Fabrics, furniture, clothes, and mattresses with flame-retardants

-Conventional personal care products

-Conventional household cleaners (antibacterial sprays, chlorine bleach, whitening agents etc.)

-Conventional laundry detergent, dryer sheets and dish soap

-Solvents, including rubbing alcohols, paint thinners, and nail polish removers

-Conventional paint

Products to Purchase:

-Glass food storage containers and water bottles

-A whole-home water filter (or in the very least a shower filter)

-Natural household cleaners (buy products labeled organic, or use hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, soap nuts and baking soda in place of commercial cleaning product)

-Natural personal care products (look for 'organic' on the label, as opposed to just 'natural')

-Organic food

-Non-toxic cookware (ceramic, cast-iron, stonewear, glass, or corningware)
