How pesticides affect your fertility

How pesticides affect your fertility


Hi, I’m Dr. Marc Sklar, the fertility expert, and welcome back to Fertility TV. In this episode, we’re going to be talking about how pesticides and chemicals impact your hormones. If you want more information on this stay tuned.

Did you know that there are upwards of chemicals that researchers have found that are in your blood that don’t belong there. They also found that it is in mothers’ breast milk and it doesn’t belong there either, so we’re passing it along to our children. These are pesticides and chemicals that shouldn’t be found in our bodies or in our household but they are. They are having serious health impacts, including on your hormones and on your fertility. Some of the ways that they are actually impacting you are these:

1) they are putting in xenoestrogen (fake estrogen) you’re your body which are taking up the receptor sites where your  regular estrogen should be binding to and it’s causing hormone disruption or an endocrine disruptor. It is also congesting your liver. Your liver is the main organ that filters all of these hormones, so when it is being impacted with more chemicals and more toxins it has to work harder which makes it more difficult for it to eliminate all these extra hormones So they hang around and cause havoc. The havoc that it also cause it that it confuses your body and it cause hormone imbalances. One of the ways that it does that is it can throw off your ovulation. Additionally, when it throws off your hormones it can cause infertility. So these chemicals can absolutely be causing your fertility issues and that needs to be taken care of. These xenoestrogens; these fake estrogens, can also cause extra growth in the body. So, they can contribute to some of the endometriosis, fibroids or cyst that you’re maybe having or that might be growing in the uterus or in the reproductive organs. Lastly, because of their effects on the endocrine system they can absolutely throw off your thyroid function as well.

So these are all no good. We don’t want these to happen. We want to clean this up and get rid of it. Well, how do you do that? Well, the first thing is to clean up your diet. If pesticides are found in your food, we have to eat clean food so that we can eliminate those toxins. So you have to eat organic. I know all of you might be tired of hearing that but the reality is it’s true. There was a research study that showed just two weeks of eating organic foods dramatically changed somebody’s health. So wouldn’t you want the same thing? Get rid of these pesticides, start eating organics, start eating grass-fed meats, get rid of the junk meats and eat healthy, clean food and this will absolutely make you feel better and be good for your body and fertility. 2) Detox. If you have been around a lot of these chemicals recently then your liver needs some extra support and some extra love. So detox your liver so it can help filter out and get rid of these extra hormones, chemicals and pesticides and clean up your house. By that I mean, clean up all of the stuff you use to clean the house and the stuff you’re putting on your body. If you can’t read it and you don’t know what it is, it shouldn’t be going you’re your skin and you shouldn’t be using it to clean your house. You can usually make just a simple mixture of vinegar and water as a cleaning solution. There are all sorts of natural ways that you can clean the house and still be clean. But you don’t need to be using all these chemicals to do so.
