TAKE A PASS ON PLAS­TIC

Amazing Wellness - - GO AROMATHERAPY -

Plas­tic is ubiq­ui­tous in the mod­ern world. It en­cases nearly ev­ery­thing we con­sume, from wa­ter bot­tles to con­ve­nience foods. What’s alarm­ing is that these plas­tics con­tain ph­tha­lates, chem­i­cals that leach out into our wa­ter and food. These ph­tha­lates mimic es­tro­gens, which can cause hor­mone im­bal­ances in the body. They can af­fect re­pro­duc­tive or­gans and hor­mones, es­pe­cially in pre­pubescent males. Some have been linked to breast and other can­cers, al­ler­gies, obe­sity, thy­roid, and other hor­monal dis­rup­tions. Ph­tha­lates dis­rupt the en­docrine sys­tem, which is re­spon­si­ble for hor­mone pro­duc­tion and me­tab­o­lism, among other im­por­tant func­tions. Aside from avoid­ing bot­tled wa­ter and mak­ing sure not to mi­crowave or store foods in plas­tic con­tain­ers, help to flush ph­tha­lates out of the body by tak­ing glu­tathione. Glu­tathione is known to aid in the me­tab­o­lism and detox­i­fi­ca­tion of en­docrine-dis­rupt­ing com­pounds. Also be sure to as­sist your body in detox­i­fy­ing these chem­i­cals by eat­ing a lot of or­ganic cru­cif­er­ous vegeta­bles, and sweat out tox­ins with ex­er­cise and/or a ses­sion in a sauna.
