Dr. Berg talks about PCOS in this video -The 3 Causes of Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) and High Androgens , polycystic ovarian syndrome and what it is and what it isn’t. The body is making excess androgens and there is 3 common reasons for this. I find this really interesting that aromatase is an enzyme produced in the body that is needed for the final step in the production of estrogen as part of the hormonal cascade during which hormones are made from other hormones in a series of conversions. This enzyme converts androgen to estrogen. Glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, kills weeds by interfering with what is called the shikimate pathway. This pathway is essential in plants for the synthesis of a class of amino acids called the “aromatics.” But this pathway is nonexistent in any mammalian cell. By simple logic, the fact that our cells don’t have this pathway means that glyphosate cannot harm us. Is there a fallacy in this argument?
Weston Price’s website says that “While mammals don’t possess the shikimate pathway, all of the microbes that take up residence in our digestive tract do have this pathway, and exposure to glyphosate, the active ingredient in Roundup, will cause them serious stress as a consequence. Studies have shown that glyphosate disrupts the gut bacteria in chickens, 54 cows,29 and pigs,10 causing inflammation in the gut along with an overgrowth of pathogenic forms and concurrent loss of beneficial bacteria. It is now becoming apparent that our gut bacteria, which outnumber our own cells by a factor of ten to one, play many important roles in supplying nutrients and protecting us from toxins.” (http://www.westonaprice.org/environme…)
Do you need first off, another reason to eat organic non-GMO foods? What about dealing with the insulin/sugar conversion going on in your body? Third, do you need another reason to detoxify?
Join me by getting healthy from the inside out. I’m going to share a very short video and discussion on changing how you look at PCOS and your diet.
