(NaturalNews) We live on a planet that has completely destroyed the delicate dynamic that is our hormones. This imbalance has created sleep disorders, anxiety, weight gain, skin problems, cancers, and much more. So what has caused our hormones to become so disrupted, and how can we get the offenders out of our life?

BPA

There has been a war on BPA, and for good reason. This chemical used in plastics imitates the sex hormone estrogen in your body, which can result in cancers, obesity, heart disease, and more. According to government testing, 93 percent of people have some level of BPA in their body!

To ditch this hormone disruptor, avoid:
  • Plastics marked with a "PC" (polycarbonate), or recycling label #7.
  • Foods that come in a can as they are often lined with BPA, unless specifically stated otherwise.
  • Drinking water out of plastic bottles. Purchase or use glass bottles instead.

Mercury

The deadly side effects of mercury are starting to become more well known, and is found in many different places, most notably in vaccinations, mercury fillings, and seafood. Pregnant women are most at risk due to mercury concentrating in the fetal brain, interfering with brain development.

Mercury also binds to a hormone that regulates women's menstrual cycle and ovulation, interfering with signaling pathways. It also may play a role in diabetes, as it damages cells in the pancreas that produce insulin, which our body uses to metabolize sugar.

To cut out this hormone disruptor from your life, avoid:
  • Vaccinations and shots containing mercury
  • Mercury fillings
  • Farmed salmon or seafood

Arsenic

Arsenic has always been known as a deadly toxin that you do not want to consume in any amount. Yet, it has been found in our drinking water and food, with the most recent discovery pointing out that it is in chicken, due to it being placed in their feed to increase their growth more quickly.

Arsenic interferes with normal hormone functioning in the glucocorticoid system that regulates how we process sugar and carbohydrates. If you disrupt this system, you could see weight gain, a suppressed immune system, insulin resistance, osteoporosis, and high blood pressure.

To lower your exposure to this deadly hormone disruptor, avoid:
  • Conventionally raised chicken on factory farms.
  • Drinking any water that hasn't went through a proper filtration process.

Lead

Lead harms almost every organ system in the body and has been linked to negative health effects like brain damage, premature births, kidney damage, and nervous system problems.

Research has shown that lead lowers our sex hormone levels, and interferes with our ability to handle stress. This can lead to other stress related issues like high blood pressure, anxiety, and depression.

To get rid of the lead in your life, avoid:
  • Homes or buildings that contain lead based paint (homes built in 1978 or earlier).
  • Drinking any water that hasn't went through a proper filtration process.

Organophosphate pesticides

Used to target the destruction of the nervous systems of insects, organophosphate pesticides are among the most common pesticides used today. They have been negatively linked to improper brain development, decreased fertility, lowered testosterone, and altered thyroid levels.

The best way to avoid these foods is to eat organic, or choose those pieces of produce that have the fewest pesticide residues like asparagus, avocados, cabbage, grapefruit, kiwi, mango, mushrooms, onions, pineapples and sweet potatoes.

This is a short list of hormone disruptors, as dioxins, atrazine, phthalates, perchlorate, fire retardants, PFC's, and glycol ethers have also been shown to disrupt various hormones in the body.

It's time to get these substances out of your life, and to complete a proper protocol to get them out of your body for good.
