151- Your Practical Guide to Dodging Environmental Toxins

“If you can fix your lifestyle to some degree and move in a cleaner direction across the board, sleep, stress, clean eating, clean drinking water, that kind of thing, you have a good opportunity to help keep harmful diseases quiet through epigenetics. The chemicals have been shown to affect the epigenome in a negative way, and they can affect not only our own health, but also perhaps the health of our future generations.” – Dr. Aly Cohen

 

We are not certain why, but people with Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) are found to have higher levels of BPA and other chemicals in their blood than those without PCOS, and it negatively impacts our hormones. We know there are unregulated man-made chemicals all around us, in our food, water, air, cosmetics, furniture, the list goes on. It can easily make you anxious and overwhelmed. We need practical advice on what to do and where to begin. Enter Dr. Aly Cohen. She is a board-certified rheumatologist and integrated medicine specialist, as well as an environmental health expert. Her new book makes the confusing understandable and the overwhelming easy. Listen in or read the transcript as we discuss:

  • Endocrine (hormone) disrupting chemicals (EDCs) and their impact on PCOS, especially insulin resistance
  • Practical (often free or inexpensive) tips on how to live healthy in the chemical world
  • Foods which help our body detoxify
  • Effect of toxins on epigenetics and PCOS
  • Nutrients you need to offset some exposures
  • Safer use of cell phones, tech toys, and gadgets
