Inorganic free radical estrogens are also referred to as metalloestrogens and xenoestrogens. Any name you give them they are damaging to the human bodies normal hormone balance. This bad and ugly estrogen can cause many health problems from infertility to cancers in men and women. Have another look at the world cancer map mentioned in an earlier blog.
It is hard to hide from inorganic estrogen. Inorganic estrogen is found in artificial scents, air-fresheners, deodorants, coated pots and pans, cleaning products, processed foods, drinks, the containers they come in...and the list goes on.
Prolonged exposure to essential oils that contain natural estrogen may be problematic as well. The list is in the Your Daily Massage Guide for Breast Health book and I will reprint this short list here. Clary Sage, Niaouli, Fennel, and Aniseed.
Unintentional prolonged exposure to estrogen good, bad and ugly may stimulate menses in menopausal women.
The body is ruled by hormones. There are many changes throughout our life that cause hormone fluctuations. Staying healthy and making smart choices can help the many transitions we have to make. Receiving massage can support the body during transitions.
