Natural ingredients to support a healthy lifestyle for women.

Glucosinates are believed to support detoxification pathways, as well as inhibit cancer cell proliferation. According to specific breast cancer research, radishes and radish sprouts contain more glucosinolates than any other cruciferous vegetables.  These compounds are often called DIM, diindolymethane. Radishes are especially good for men and women with hormonal reproductive cancers and women with hyperestrogenism such as fibrocystiv breast disease, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, and severe PMS. Eating about 1 cup a day could be beneficial and the goal easily attained.

An excellent source of iodine and other minerals can be found in seaweed. Seaweed can replace chips, crackers and other starches helping those with hypothyroidism, metabolic syndrome, frank diabetes, or PCOS to lose weight.

Phytoestrogens are able to bind to estrogen receptors and elicit a variety of hormonal effects and may be an important tool in hormonal balance in cancers that involve excessive hormonal stimulation. Phytoestrogens are found in herbs such as red clover, alfalfa, stinging nettle, green and black tea, hop, and licorice.

Beans provide an excellent source of fiber and isoflavones. Eating at least one serving a day to support hormonal balance, reduce cholesterol, improve insulin resistance and blood sugar regulation and support a healthy intestinal ecosystem. Chromium offers blood sugar balancing effects and hibiscus is the highest known source.

Finding and utilizing simple recipes that contain these ingredients are a great way to stay healthy while keeping up with your busy lifestyle. Another way to stay healthy is by replacing your dairy products with substitutes such as hemp or almond milk. Many dairy products contain added hormones and drug residues, contributing to hormonal imbalance in women with PCOS.

Some of these chemicals are hazardous to your health and from cow to you perpetuate the rise of antibiotic-resistant organisms. This is bad for everyone.
