Ladies - What You Need To Know About Xenoestrogens

Tuesday 9 October 2012

Xenoestrogens are chemicals (mostly industrial compounds) that mimic natural estrogen. The presense of xenoestrogens in our daily lives can cause great harm to our body.

Chemicals found in pesticides, detergents, petroleum products, plastic products, carpeting, furniture, toiletries and cosmetics produce estrogenic effects in our bodies and cause the symptoms of estrogen dominance.

The imbalance of estrogen against progesterone (hormone imbalance) causes the body to react by producing problematic symptoms, and increases the risk of endometriosis, uterine fibroids, polycystic ovaries, breast cancer, uterine cancer and thyroid imbalances.

How do you reduce exposure to these chemical compounds?


Some pesticides and fertilisers used in agriculture contain compounds that have a chemical structure similar to estrogen. These xenoestrogen-containing pesticides find their way into our body through fruits, vegetables, grains and meats.

  • Buy organic produce, as they reduce the use of synthetic pesticides and fertilisers and use natural pest control and fertilisation.
  • Clean, wash and soak thoroughly to get rid of traces of pesticides.
  • Wear gloves and masks when you use these chemicals and follow all safety precautions.
  • Store these products away from your house and water supply.


Bisphenol A (BPA) is a xenoestrogen and has been linked to many health problems. BPA is found in polycarbonate plastic bottles and the lining of canned foods and could leach from the containers into the foods.

  • Buy frozen or fresh foods instead of eating canned foods.
  • Avoid buying food in plastic packaging or meat packaged in styrofoam trays. Buy fresh meat from the market.
  • Use plastic products that are BPA-free. Plastic bottles with "#7" or "PC" on the bottom indicate that they may contain BPA.
  • Don't microwave food in plastic containers or store hot liquids in plastic boxes and bottles.

How to Regulate your Hormone Level?

Is it easier said than done? Yes, it's very hard to avoid coming into contact with xenoestrogens in our daily lives. Here is an easier solution - Lingzhi / Ganoderma.

Do you know that lingzhi / ganoderma is an adaptogen that enables your body to heal itself? It has an overall normalizing effect, meaning it has the ability to regulate your hormone levels to restore your health. It is a very safe food that does a great regulating job when we absorb excessive xenoestrogens into our body.

I can definitely testify to that because I used to suffer from severe menstrual cramps every month due to my hormonal imbalance. But after consuming a combination of Lingzhi and Pollen for about 9 months, my condition has improved over 90%.
