PROTECT YOUR PREGNANCY AND YOUR BODY FROM XENOESTROGENS

Xenoestrogens and How to Minimize Your Exposure

Guest Post By Elizabeth Allard

Our modern world is full of wonderful conveniences that many of us can't imagine being without. Automobiles, cell phones, computers, and television, as just a few examples, benefit our lives in many positive ways. We love the convenience of microwaving a meal, grabbing a bottle of water on the way to the gym, and choosing from endless products on supermarket shelves. But, as time goes on, we are beginning to recognize the drawbacks that accompany our modern conveniences, especially those in the form of harmful chemicals. Endocrine disrupting chemicals known as xenoestrogens offer a prime example.
Estrogen, like every hormone naturally produced by the body, is a vital chemical messenger that transports a signal from one cell to another. However, xenoestrogens, a group of chemicals present in

the environment and the products we use every day, mimic the effects of estrogen and compromise normal hormone function. Combined with the estrogen naturally produced by the body, these foreign chemicals create an excess of estrogen. Since we know that breast cancer develops in the presence of estrogen maintained over a prolonged period of time, this puts both women and men at risk for developing the disease.
Research shows that xenoestrogens are not only linked to high rates of breast cancer, but also contribute to endometriosis, precocious puberty (unusually early onset of puberty), infertility, and miscarriages. In men, xenoestrogens are believed to contribute to decreased sperm counts, and prostate and testicular cancers. Other health problems such as thyroid disorders, diabetes, and behavioral abnormalities in children, may also be linked to xenoestrogens interfering with the estrogens naturally produced by the body.
In relation to breast cancer, organochlorines are among the most concerning of the xenoestrogens. Organochlorines, or compounds which contain chlorine and carbon, do not easily breakdown in the environment and accumulate in high concentrations in the fat of humans. Organochlorines are produced as by-products of industrial processes involving chlorine, organic matter and heat, such as bleached paper, burning of hazardous, municipal and medical waste, and chemical production. They are also found in pesticides, pharmaceuticals, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) plastic and much more.
Nonylphenol ethoxylates (NPEs) are yet another class of endocrine disrupting chemicals. They are commonly used as detergents in many industrial processes (including the production of oil, pulp and paper, synthetic and natural textiles and leather) and common household products. NPE'S are used as additives in latex paints and cosmetics, as anti-oxidants and stabilizers in some plastics and in some pesticides. Nonoxynol-9, a form of NPEs, is the active ingredient in contraceptive spermicides.
Clearly, we are constantly exposed to endocrine disrupting xenoestrogens making them impossible to avoid altogether. However, with education and awareness, each and every step taken to identify and minimize our exposure to these and other toxic chemicals will contribute to our future health and that of the planet. Simple steps can make a huge difference, like choosing a food-grade stainless steel water bottle over plastic and/or switching to chemical free personal care products. Each positive choice we make, no matter how small, matters. Now is the time to begin.
What can you do right now to make a positive impact on your health and reduce your risk for developing breast cancer and other diseases? Begin by examining the products you use on a daily basis. Check the ingredients in your personal care products like shampoo, conditioner, facial care products, deodorant, etc. where many xenoestrogens are commonly found. Reduce your exposure to chlorine by using a chlorine filter shower head and choosing unbleached products. Limit your use of plastics, especially drinking from plastic water bottles and microwaving in plastic containers. Learn to identify and minimize as many xenoestrogens as possible.
Identifying chemicals shown to have estrogenic effects:

o Use naturally based fragrances, such as essential oils.

o Read the labels on condoms and diaphragm gels.

o Minimize X-rays whenever possible.

o Be aware of noxious gas such as from copiers and printers, carpets, fiberboards, and at the gas pump.
Guidelines to protect the environment:
o Share this information with family and friends.

o Insist on your right to know before chemicals are used in your neighborhood, schools and work.

o Ask your local grocery to carry non-toxic products and non-bleached products.

o Demand action from politicians, industry and environmental regulators to phase out known endocrine disrupting chemicals.

o Press for disclosure of information on endocrine disruptors in consumer products, packaging, industrial emissions, pesticides and food.

o Support groups that are working for the phase-out of harmful chemicals in the environment.

o Maintain a strong immune system. Exercise regularly and eat well. Eat a diet high in fruits and vegetables-reduce consumption of animal protein. Reduce stress in your life as much as possible.

o Minimize car and energy use; walk, bicycle, bus or car pool instead.

o Recycle cell phones and other electronic devices and rechargeable batteries to keep estrogenic heavy metals from leaching into the environment.

o Use biodegradable detergents that use plant- or vegetable-based surfactants, since these types of ingredients don't form estrogenic chemicals that can contaminate the environment.

WHITE LIGHT VISUALIZATION TO PROTECT PREGNANCY

One of the ways I dealt with my fear of miscarriage was to visualize a white light around my pregnancy. Not only did the visualization process help my pregnancy, but it also helped to decrease my stress level.
My CD on  Meditation and Visualization (www.getpregnantover40.com) explains how I visualized.
 Here is a site that explains how the "white light" may help protect you and others:

http://www.getpregnantover40.com/meditationabout.htm
CLICK HERE FOR MEDITATION AUDIO
Simply visualize yourself bathed in a radiant white light. You can imagine it streaming down on you from heaven, or you can imagine it simply radiating out from you like your aura. Some teachers recommend that you visualize it impermeable like an egg shell. Others suggest you make it your own by adding any details that appeal to you, like purple stars or white diamonds, etc. You can also see yourself guarded by an invisible force field that is endless: it extends indefinitely above you, below you, and all around you. I like to BECOME the light, to imagine I'm so pure and bright that nothing shadowy can get anywhere near me. There really is no wrong way to do this, for the whole purpose is simply to get you focused AWAY from whatever is making you afraid or nervous, and focused ON well-being. The exact appearance of the white light is irrelevant; the important thing is the feeling of well-being that it generates within you.

As you're visualizing yourself surrounded by white light, remember that you are ever watched over by divine beings such as guides, angels, etc. Affirm that well-being abounds, and that no matter how bad things may look at the moment, miracles happen every day. "Know" deep down that one way or another, you will always find your way to well-being. Then project yourself into the future, vividly visualizing yourself as you desire to be.

MISCARRIAGE ANNIVERSARY: 10 THINGS TO KNOW

10 Things About Anniversaries Post-Loss

Guest Post By Nathalie Himmelrich

1. Anniversary reactions are normal
Even years after the loss you may have emotional reactions to anniversaries. You might feel sad, angry, contemplative or any other emotions. Remembering them as being normal can help you understand and take them as healing opportunities.
2. Do whatever feels right for you
Take it in your hands, take responsibility to make the day meaningful / helpful / healing-ful for you. Healing is YOUR choice, remembering too.
There are many ideas and suggestions out there: search Google to find many more ideas. Read up on ideas and make your choice.
If you have done something special please share it in the comments for others to read and benefit.

3. Manage your expectations of others
This might sound harsh but no one is required to remember your loved one. Thinking that others should/need to... will turn into disappointment. Everyone is doing the best they can, some remember but prefer not to talk about it and some don't remember. In addition, they are not mind readers and therefore do not know whether you prefer to talk about your child or not. In general, society does keep quiet for 'fear' of the potential emotional reaction they might trigger.
4. Speak up
Say what you need. Involve those that are important to you. On the first birthday of my daughter I asked the family to bring something from nature, like a stone, feather etc. to remember Amya. We held a small circle and each person was invited to speak. This is what I needed and by letting people know, it happened. On the girls 2nd birthday, I made a memorial video of Amya. Just for myself - the way I wanted to honour Amya.

5. Be true to yourself
What you feel like doing, or not doing, is not necessarily what another mother or father chooses to do. Stay true to yourself. There is no guideline on what needs to happen on anniversaries.
6. Guilt
Please remember guilt is reserved for a purposeful act intended to harm someone physically or emotionally. This is not the case if you don't feel like doing something but think you should... Be gentle with yourself and - you're doing it right by doing what feels right.
7. My partner does think about him/her
Generally speaking, more often women feel that their man does not think or remember the child's birthday or anniversary. Even though it might be true that men more often forget special dates, be aware of what you imply: Have you asked him (or her)?
More often than not, men tend to internalise their processes and women externalise them. Having interviewed many bereaved parents, both fathers and mothers I do know that it is not true that they don't remember. They do. They just have different ways to do it.
8. Let people know
As mentioned before, people do not know unless you tell them. Help people understand what it is you need by letting them know.
9. A word about self-expectations
Beside the expectation we have of others, we also consciously or unconsciously internalise what we have heard or read. Expecting yourself to be, react or experience different that you are leads to self imposed stress. Notice if that is what is happening. Let go. Allow yourself to be the way it is.
10. Any day can be a 'remembrance' day
Any day you have loaded with meaning can trigger beautiful or stressful memories. As in life in general, so in post-loss life. If you have too many days loaded with stressful triggers of grief, maybe it's time to off-load them and re-load them with more helpful meaning. I will show you how in a future post. Stay tuned.

MISCARRIAGE AND EFT: EMOTIONAL FREEDOM TECHNIQUE TAPPING

Can EFT and Tapping Help You Through Miscarriage?

So what is EFT? It stands for "emotional freedom technique". I learned about it years ago from an article in our local paper about how this technique can help with everything from emotional hang-ups to physical pain.
It is based on the principles of acupuncture where certain points on your body are tapped while you recite certain statements which are specific to your situation.  The following link describes how EFT
works and how to do it:

COMPASSION MAY BE THE BEST TREATMENT FOR MISCARRIAGE

No Standard Treatment For Miscarriage, But TLC May Be Best

I never thought I was the type that needed compassion from my medical providers.
Even though I was devastated by repeatedly miscarrying, I held a stiff upper lip and went on to try again. However, according to the article below, TLC may be one of the most effective treatments for miscarriage. Read more:

So, what's a conscientious obstetrician or midwife to do when faced with a patient who can get pregnant but who can't stay that way? Often nothing, in terms of simple medical intervention. (One exception to the rule is a proven treatment for women with antiphospholipid syndrome, who can increase their chances of carrying a baby to term with aspirin and the complex sugar heparin.) But if doctors and clinicians can't rush to write prescriptions, that doesn't mean they have nothing to offer their patients. In researching his book, Cohen learned of a dozen clinics around the world that specialize in caring for women who repeatedly miscarry. What seems to help many of their patients most is restraint, patience, and compassion. As Mary Stephenson at the University of Chicago Hospitals tells Cohen, "It's OK to want to phone a nurse every day."

And perhaps paradoxically, such non-clinical attentiveness has shown better results than any other treatment Cohen describes. One study in Norway of women who had miscarried at least three times (and some had miscarried as many as 13) found that 86 percent of those who received weekly medical exams and psychological support during a post-miscarriage pregnancy carried to term, as

compared to 33 percent who did not. A separate New Zealand study replicated those results. Which

may mean that, at least as a medical matter, hand-holding is the best intervention going for serial miscarriers.

The numbers of patients in the two studies is small, and Cohen expresses discomfort with a treatment that sounds, well, mushy—it goes by the cloying name of "tender loving care." But his wife, herself a miscarriage veteran, identifies strongly with the researchers' conclusion that the clinics succeed by confronting their patients' despondence, fatalism, and panic. One of the specialists Cohen shadows, Danny Schust at Brigham and Women's Hospital in Boston, doesn't even diagnose a specific problem in a third of his patients. That's OK: Until the science advances, a lot of women will settle for a knowledgeable hand to hold.

SURPRISING STUDY: FIBROIDS DON'T INCREASE MISCARRIAGE RISK

This study was very surprising to me.  Years ago, when I was in my 20's I had fibroid surgery.  Even though I was not trying to conceive at the time, I was told by my surgeon that this could preserve my ability to get pregnant.  Even though the study below disputes that fibroids contribute to miscarriage, I'm glad I had the surgery.  Fibroids can get quite large and mine were growing quite fast.  Read more about the study on Fibroids and miscarriage:

Investigators from Vanderbilt, University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, accrued the largest prospective cohort to date to investigate the association of fibroids with miscarriage, said Hartmann, the study's principal investigator.

Of the more than 5,500 women enrolled, ultrasound detected uterine fibroids in 11 percent, while 89 percent of the study participants did not have fibroids. The chance for miscarriage in both groups was 11 percent.
"The key message is that fibroids don't seem to be linked to miscarriage," said Hartmann.

SHORT CERVIX SCREENING TO IMPROVE SUCCESSFUL PREGNANCY RATES


I'm sure most women have no idea whether or not they have a short cervix. However, screening for this could prevent pre-term birth and premature delivery.  There are some treatments that can be given to women with this condition that may prolong the pregnancy and prevent prematurity.

This article talks about how screening for a short cervix is not only cost effective but it could prevent long-term disorders in infants and prevent neonatal death. Read more:

From the article:

"Since only 10 percent of preterm birth occurs in women with a history of preterm birth, cervical length screening may be the best way to decrease the number of babies born prematurely," said Werner.
