Endometriosis Part 17 – How Xenoestrogen Causes Endometriosis
As we mentioned in previous articles during the last stage of the menstrual cycle typically a layer of endometriosis lining in the inside of the uterus is expelled, known as menstruation blood but instead some of the endometriosis tissues grow somewhere in the body causing endometriosis. Endometriosis also responds to hormonal signals of the menstrual menstrual cycle, building up tissue, breaking it, and eliminating it through the menstrual period. In this article, we will discuss how xenoestrogen causes endometriosis.
Xenoestrogen are man-made compounds, such as synthetic chemicals, which mimic the effect of natural estrogen produced by our body.
II. Xenoestrogen and Endometriosis
1. Environment toxins.
Our body tries to get rid of environmental toxins everyday through our liver and digestive system. Environmental toxins may come from food intake, air that we breath, or contact through skin. Overdosing of these types of toxins cause hormonal imbalance resulting in xenoestrogen disrupted the process of reproduction system, increasing the risk of endometriosis.
2. Weakened immune system
Xenoestrogen is toxic to our body. Overdosing of xenoestrogen not only disrupts the production of natural estrogen from our body, it also exhibits the forming of free radicals and weakens our immune system to fight against any bacteria and virus as well as implanting endometrial cells in the wrong parts of our body.
3. Exacerbated by food intake
Since we already known that xenoestrogen is the result of man made harmful products. Overload of xenoestrogen through food intake may exacerbate high level of estrogen being produced from the body resulting in hormone imbalance as well as increasing the risk of endometriosis.
4. Stimulating coelomic metaphasia
As we know, xenoestrogen toxifies our body and disrupts the normal function of cell development in our body increasing the risk of some of the peritoneal cells develop into endometrial cells according to the coelomic metaphasia theory.
5. Hormonal Imbalance
Xenoestrogen increases the production of estrogen in a woman's body causing hormone imbalance resulting in disruption of menstrual cycle, menstrual cramps and the risk of endometrial cells in the abdomen.
