of the major causes of hormone imbalance
David William writes the monthly health newsletter Alternatives, For the
Health Conscious Individual. His May 2014 issue was titled Achieving
wife and I have found his information to be among the best in the world on the
subject of optimum health. Several years ago we learned from him the
importance of chia seed in our diets as the richest plant on the planet in
omega-3, and most are deficient in this essential fatty acid. See the
following link for detailed benefits. http://www.allanstime.com/Health/Chia_seed.htm
this May issue information is not known and is a profound contribution on the
part of Dr. Williams. Since it is very important to our health, I felt
to share a summary of this information with you.
of the importance of the professional details and insights shared, I recommend
that you order this issue. The information below is only a complementary
summary. This issue can be ordered from email@example.com

Dr. Williams documents that over the last 50 years there has developed a large
imbalance of the estrogen/progesterone ratio. With the large increase in
this ratio from our exposure to estrogen-like compounds, he reports, “We now
live in an estrogenic, feminizing fish bowl. These compounds, called
xenoestrogens, are sometimes referred to as ‘gender benders’ and can be 10
to 100 times more powerful than natural estrogen.” This “gender
bender” problem correlates with the decrease in the age of puberty for an
average of 14.2 years for girls in the 1900s to now girls as young as 7 enter
puberty. For males, we see more and more female characteristics.
Serious cancer problems arise from this imbalance as well. Fortunately,
he gives some combative measures to counter this problem.
problem “has become endemic” because common “xenoestrogens include BPA,
PCBs, phthalates, flame retardants, pesticides, herbicide, and DDT residue,
all of which have been found in our food and water supplies.” Many
plastic products contain BPA. “Phthalates are used in PVC products to
make them softer and more flexible. They show up in everything from toys
to food packages, flooring, and shower curtains, as well as nail polish, hair
spray, and shampoo.” BPA shows up in the lining of many cans.
“Campbell’s uses BPA free cans.”
Dr. Williams points out that it would be impossible to list all the xenoestrogen compounds that are legally added to our foods, cleaners, and personal care products. However, he suggests some very important steps to limit the effects of this endemic hormone ratio problem and the exposure to excess estrogen and estrogen like compounds and lack of sufficient progesterone:
Williams points out the disturbing situation that there is a lot of
misinformation both with doctors and the public regarding estrogen and
progesterone, because of all the synthesized products produced by the
pharmaceutical industry. “Most doctors will be quick to say that oral
contraceptives contain both estrogen and progesterone. More
specifically, they contain synthetic forms of these hormones.”
This has provided enormous profits to be made from, for example, the
estrogen-based Pill, which causes a fertilized egg to be aborted, and the
increasing estrogen-like to progesterone ratio imbalance is causing ever
increasing serious disease issues.
conception as when the sperm enters the egg, estrogen-based contraceptives are
actually abortive. Progesterone is a natural “true” contraceptive,
but since it occurs naturally, it cannot be patented and marketed, so the
pharmaceutical industry has no motivation to develop this natural
contraceptive. No big money to be made here.
Dr. Williams shares the “brain is very responsive to progesterone. Its
concentration in the brain is around 20 times higher than in the blood.
Studies have shown that it not only protects the brain, but it also improves
memory, relieves anxiety…” and more. “Progesterone has a calming
effect on the brain as opposed to estrogen’s excitatory influence.”
In addition, “progesterone stimulates new bone formation, which is needed to
actually reverse osteoporosis.”
am deeply grateful for Dr. David Williams continued help for us toward optimum
health. Our health – and several others of our family and friends –
has significantly benefited since we learned from him of the importance of
chia seed in our diet on a regular basis. As you can see from the link,
it helps with both the cardiovascular and digestive systems along with helping
to lose weight. So it also addresses some of the other issues caused by
the harmful increase in the estrogen/progesterone ratio imbalance.
Chia seed is one of the best food storage items; 35 lbs. will feed two people for a year. Our friends, Gary and Dawn Nielson in CO, still sell it: (970) 882-4395.
