Why Do I Need the Endocrine Disrupter Restore Bundle?
Concern about the dangerous impact of the chemicals found in our water, our air, and the personal products we use every day is no longer viewed with skepticism, or considered "science fiction". In fact, mainstream medical organizations are now banding together to spread the word about the numerous health impacts of these chemicals. Most recently, the International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) issued a statement in October 2015 warning that, "widespread exposure to toxic environmental chemicals threatens healthy human reproduction."
This statement echoes the sentiments of other researchers and doctors, across many medical specialties. In a press release issued by the Endocrine Society (view at Endocrine.org), Andrea C. Gore, Professor at the University of Texas at Austin stated, "The evidence is more definite than ever before - EDCs (endocrine-disrupting chemicals) disrupt hormones in a manner that harms human health. Hundreds of studies are pointing to the same conclusion, whether they are long-term epidemiological studies in humans, basic research in animals and cells, or research into groups of people with known occupational exposure to specific chemicals."
What Exactly are EDCs (Endocrine-Disrupting Chemicals)?
Endocrine disrupters are chemicals that mimic, or interfere with, the function of natural hormones like estrogen. Endocrine disrupters are found everywhere - in pesticides, plastics (like your water bottle), cash register receipts, shampoos, cosmetics, and food packaging. When you hear the words BPA, paraben, and phthalate, think endocrine disrupter.
The stakes are especially high for women who are trying to conceive. Exposure to endocrine disrupters not only reduces fertility, but also impacts the long-term health of children. Health care professionals and scientists are increasingly concerned about babies being born "pre-polluted."
Avoiding Exposure is a Good First Step
If you are actively trying to conceive, minimizing your exposure to toxic chemicals is a must, not only for improving your chances of conceiving naturally, but also to ensure the health of your baby. Here are several ways to reduce the amount of endocrine-disrupters you come in contact with:
1. Eat organic
2. Use a glass water bottle, or purchase a plastic water bottle that is guaranteed to be BPA and pthlatate-free
3. Skip the fragrance - phthalates are used to suspend smell throughout the product
4. Fingernails and toenails are porous - the chemicals in polish go into your body so take a break from salons and nail-painting
5. Go "green" with your cleaning and gardening products
6. Say no to cash register receipts - a surprising source of BPA, right?
7. Choose natural shampoos and cosmetics that are free of parabens and phthalates
8. Avoid canned foods with liners containing BPA
Detoxification Helps Remove Toxins Before Damage Occurs
Even with extreme diligence and vigilance, it is impossible to avoid all endocrine-disrupting chemicals. Lucky for us, the human body is amazing, and has several mechanisms for removing harmful chemicals. Your skin, your digestive system and your liver are basically detoxification machines. However, with daily exposure to chemicals, our detoxification systems become overworked and inefficient. FertileDetox contains herbs and nutrients that naturally support the body's detoxification systems, so that toxins are eliminated from your body before they cause damage.
Antioxidants Protect from Harmful Effects of Endocrine Disrupters
When toxins enter the body, free radicals (unstable compounds) are produced, which can create a condition known as oxidative stress. Oxidative stress causes damage to cells throughout the body - including egg cells. OvaBoost offers a combination of antioxidant nutrients that help to prevent oxidative stress, thereby promoting egg quality.
Please consult with your physician before taking OvaBoost if you have been prescribed a medication for depression or anxiety, or if you are taking the herb St. John's Wort, as large amounts of myo-inositol may have additive effects when taken along with drugs and herbs classified as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors(SSRI) and selective serotonin norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRI).
