We hear in the news how Estrogen Dominance can cause anything from menstrual issues, weight gain, PMS, anxiety, bloating, brain fog, fatigue, mood issues, and many types of cancer. A lot of the symptoms that we see in menopause can be due to Estrogen Dominance.
We see articles on diets to help reduce the estrogen dominance in our bodies and how eating certain foods can actually cause an increase of estrogen.
As woman, it is of the utmost importance that our hormones are in balance for what our own bodies need. Estrogen and progesterone (along with a plethora of other chemicals) ebb and flow throughout a woman’s life being higher or lower at certain times of her life depending on her age. Each individual woman has a specific balance of these delicate hormones in her body and throughout her life cycles (from first menses thru to menopause) her hormones will naturally ebb and flow with her bodies needs. This all happens naturally as it is written within our genetic code to smoothly transition these natural phases.
So, what happened? If it is written in our genetic code how come we are seeing so much Estrogen Dominance in our society lately.
There are many reasons for estrogen dominance from lifestyle to family genetics. Luckily, there are many changes that can be made in a woman’s diet, stress level, work situation etc, that can help to balance out those delicate hormones.
As well as many lifestyle changes, there are also Chinese Herbal remedies that can help to naturally balance hormones.
If you are a woman struggling with some of the health issues above please be sure to seek the advice of a professional. To know if you have Estrogen Dominance you would need to have your blood tested by your Medical Doctor.
