There are thousands of hormones in the body. Some of the most commonly known hormones are
estrogen, testosterone and insulin, but there are many more that you do not necessarily think about
on a regular basis that effect your body in various ways. Hormones are essentially chemicals in
the body that deliver messages between certain cells in the body. However, there are times when
toxins may interfere with our hormones and sets them off their course and knocks them off balance.
Before we talk about Toxins lets mention one Hormone call Insulin which causes major obesity in
our country and this is how it happens. As we begin to eat the hormone insulin is produce and these
hormones regulate our sugar if you are too many carbohydrate sugars, bread, rice, pasta, potatoes,
fruits and certain vegetables your pancreas produces more insulin which do not keep up with the
sugar intake so excess sugar is left in your body. When excess sugar is not immediately processed via insulin it turns to FAT .
My Metabolism is so slow! I eat small amounts of food but gain weight very fast; it is so depressing
says Ariel, former client to the Martha’s Vineyard Holistic Retreat.
When our metabolic rate is altered and this can cause us to gain weight. People may also develop other symptoms, such as:
Imbalance hormones and altered metabolism leads to a toxic body.
Our pancreas and our Thyroid are part of a fat burning system that controls our toxic waste and it
is altered by imbalance hormones and storage of toxins in the body. Mother Nature did not design
your body to mop up the thousands of manmade chemicals that are poisoning you from your food
and your environment. Toxic chemicals accumulate in your organs and make your body sluggish.
Toxins affect the way your body metabolizes food and eliminates waste. The end result: those
unwanted pounds. Unless you do something about it, toxic overload will overwhelm your body as it
struggles to expel damaging chemicals, and you will eventually get fat and sick.
Many doctors will attempt to resolve these issues by simply prescribing a thyroid hormone or a
insulin resistant medication. However, this can cause many problems itself which this article will not
address at this time.
