She is a clinical nutritionist practicing metabolic nutrition, functional health testing and health care, bodywork and mind/body relationships. She works with all types of health conditions and dysfunction, as she sees that there are a set of core root causes of all illnesses with an infinite array of individual expressions.
She seeks to understand the intersections and treat each person as an individual. In this episode, we're diving into a fascinating topic: estrogen toxicity and how to support safe detoxification. We'll explore the difference between estrogen dominance and toxicity, and the symptoms of both. Julie shares her experience using testing methods like Dutch testing.
We'll take a closer look at phases 1 and 2 estrogen detoxification process and how it affects our body's levels of estrogen. We clarify that estrogen, specifically estradiol, is not the problem but estrogen-mimicking compounds.
We'll discuss how compounds like phenolics and heavy metals can act on our hormone receptors and potentially contribute to weight gain and gut issues like SIBO. But don't worry, we've got you covered with safe ways to support proper detoxification, like the importance of bile, coffee enemas, and the pros and cons of detox supplements like DIM.
Overall, this episode offers a comprehensive look at estrogen toxicity and provides practical solutions for safely supporting proper detoxification.
