hi wray, thank you again for everything you do. i have some questions. is taking soylecitin going to make oestrogen going up? it is because i have no gallbladder anymore, and it was suggested. will it destroy my progesteronetherapy? i am one month on natpro and feeling better. i take 12ml a day. also any info about chlorine used in pools, will it harm the hormones? the last thing i want to ask is about hairdyes, are they all xenooestrogen? all the same? i thank you and god bless you and your family.

Comments for greetings

Hi there Thanks for kind words. Soy in any form is oestrogenic, it's not something I would recommend, see here. Far better to take taurine, this amino is vital for bile production. Without it fats build up in the liver. Progesterone helps glucuronidation, one of the main detoxifying systems in the liver, see here. I'm delighted you're beginning to feel better, it's because you've chosen to use 400mg/day. Too many women complain progesterone is not doing anything for them, and the amount they use is far too low. Once symptoms improve it's easy to reduce the amount. But please do it slowly, over several weeks. Unfortunately chlorination and other disinfectants combine with organic material in water to form even more toxic compounds. Bathing, showering, drinking and swimming in chlorinated water does affect hormones. Boys under 7 are particularly affected if they spend much time in swimming pools, see here, here and here. P-Phenylenediamine is commonly found in hair dyes, it can damage the nervous system, cause lung irritation and cause severe allergic reactions. It's also called 1,4-Benzenediamine; p-Phenyldiamine and 4-Phenylenediamine. Formaldehyde can cause immune-system toxicity, respiratory irritation and cancer in humans. It's found in baby bath soap, nail polish, eyelash adhesive and hair dyes as a contaminant, or a break-down product of diazolidinyl urea, imidazolidinyl urea and quaternium compounds. These last three are often found in skin care products. This page gives a list of chemicals to avoid, see here. Or you can enter a chemical into the Skin Deep database to learn of it's toxic properties. For instance this is their info on diazolidinyl urea which does have an effect on the endocrine system. Take care Wray
