Prevent Breast & Prostate Cancer
Estrogens play an important role in bone formation and maintenance, they exert protective effects on the heart and they influence behavior and mood.
You MUST DETOXIFY ESTROGENS…or they will cause problems – ultimately breast or prostate cancer
Estrogens circulate around the body bound to other proteins (called sex hormone binding globulins or SHBG). Only unbound estrogens can enter target-tissue cells and induce biological activity – some good, some bad. So, any changes in these proteins (SHBG’s) will alter estrogen metabolism.
Remember, the ultimate ffect of estrogen depends on how it is metabolized. Metabolism takes place primarily in the liver through detoxification that includes hydroxylation, methylation, glucoronidation, and sulfation, and ends with excretion in the urine and feces.
There are 3 different pathways down which estrogen can be metabolized, but only 1 is a healthy, happy pathway.
Unfortunately, there are many environmental and dietary reasons that push the detoxification down the wrong pathways. Many adult bodies do not detoxify properly – often because of dietary insufficiency and environmental overload of toxins and stresses. For some, the problem lies in the methylation, or failure to methylate properly, for some it’s glucoronidation, sulfation, etc.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ESTROGEN GOES DOWN THE WRONG PATHWAY?
- Estrogens are recycled rather than excreted -so you end up with excess estrogens internally.
- Your body will produce high levels of quinones – which have potential carcinogenic effects
- Your body will store estrogens in target tissues, primarily the breast and prostate – with the ultimate potential – development of breast and prostate cancer.
FACT: women who send estrogen down the wrong pathway have significantly elevated risk of breast cancer
Remember – eat a healthy diet and detoxify your body of estrogens and toxins bi-annually. Detoxification often leads to weight loss.
You do not have to live with awful PMS, Menopause Flashes, backaches, joint and muscle pain, feelings of depression, bloating, swelling, or even weight gain.

Estrovera Capsules with Flora Blend, and using flaxseed meal are exactly what you need.
WHAT WOULD CAUSE YOUR BODY TO SEND ESTROGEN DOWN THE WRONG PATHWAY?
|CAUSE||Rx – what you can do|
|Unbalanced intestinal bacteria – excess bad guys allow estrogen to recycle and prevent them from being excreted.||Maintain proper intestinal health through diet and supplement with NCFM strain probiotics, such as Flora Blend,or any of the Ultra Flora’s.
|*Most adults do not methylate properly||Check your homocysteine level, support methylation with the proper nutrients including B complex, SAM and Magnesium – ie.Glycogenics, HCL|
|Numerous pesticides and carcinogens, certain drugs [cyclosporin, cimetidine (Tagamet)], being very overweight, and genetics promote an unhealthy pathway||Dietary modifications to reduce pesticide and carcinogen exposure – including adding more soy, flax, kudzu and cruciferous veggies will help promote the correct pathway. Try Meta I3C|
|Excess insulin in the bloodstream prompts the ovaries to reduce SHBG – the binding proteins, thus increasing levels of free estrogens – which can float around and enter target tissues.||Limit your intake of refined carbohydrates. You may add Ultra CLA to help control insulin and blood sugar levels.
|Add more foods high in fiber, phytoestrogens, lignans and flavonoids. Try Oxygenics, flaxmeal|
Fiber: eat adequate fiber every day. Fiber can bind to estrogen and prevent recirculation. Fiber also influences healthy intestinal bacteria.
Fats: A proper balance among types and amount of dietary fats can prevent cancer. Breast cancer cells exposed to EPA promotes detoxification down the correct pathway. Try our Barlean’s swirls, DHA caps and also EFA
Protein: Inadequate protein may prevent adequate SHBG to bind the estrogens, and additional negative complications.
