You may be suffering from the effects of estrogen dominance.
Estrogen is fundamental to the formation of female sexual characteristics and reproductive function. In other words it’s what helps grow breasts, pubic hair and armpit hair. It also stimulates growth of the inner lining of the uterus (endometrium) during the menstrual cycle, increases uterine growth, improves lubrication of the vagina, and thickens the vaginal wall while increasing blood vessels to the skin.
Estrogen has the ability to make us orgasm, and it gives us soft, svelte womanliness. Estrogen can make us overweight, angry, and not sexual if it is not in check.
Estradiol levels are too high or the ratio between estrogen and progesterone is off, which is called estrogen dominance.
Estrogen dominance can be caused by a number of different reasons, such as man made chemicals in the environment that mimic estrogen in our bodies, and act as endocrine disrupters even in minute concentrations.
Most of the growth hormones given to livestock and poultry contain fat-soluble estrogens. We ingest that estrogen when we consume those animals or their milk.
There are many things that contain senoestrogens, such as household chemicals, dry cleaning, bleach, air fresheners, perfume, and soaps and cosmetics that contain phenoxyethanol or paraben.
It only gets worse as you can see, we are swimming in estrogen. We are being bombarded in both the outside world and inside our bodies. If you are overweight, you will be producing too much estrogen, and the heavier you are, the worse it can be. The more fat cells you have, the more estrogen you are producing. Birth control pills, bad digestion, drugs and alcohol can all contribute to excess estrogen and make it impossible to lose weight.
10 ways to detox estrogen
1.Remove the xenoestrogens
If you want to eliminate all sources of xenoestrogens, you should eat organic food. Don’t use harsh chemicals in your home, and switch to all natural products wherever you can. Air fresheners and perfumes can be made using essential oils.
2.Improve your digestion
Excess estrogen can be carried out of the body with the help of healthy gutbacteria. It’s important to eat lots of probiotic foods or take a supplement to increase the good bacteria in the gut and support the neurotransmitter function.
Excess estrogen can be carried out by eating a healthy diet rich in fiber. A woman should aim for 25 to 30 grams of fiber a day.
3.Lower alcohol consumption
Even wine ladies… yes… Alcohol can change the way a woman’s body processes estrogen. Blood estrogen levels can go up because of this. Women who drink alcohol have higher estrogen levels than women who don’t. Excess estrogen is removed from the body by the liver, which taxes it.
4.Lose excess body fat and get regular exercise
– especially strength training.
5.Detoxify your liver
Traditional Chinese Medicine says that menopausal symptoms can be caused by blockedLiver andKidney chi. The ability to cleanse the blood of estrogen is compromised when the liver has to work hard to eliminate toxins such as alcohol, drugs, caffeine, or environmental agents.
A diet high in red meat and refined sugars can cause an increase in the amount of estrogen. A diet rich in pasture raised meats, nuts, and low GI fruits and vegetables is good for you. White bread, sugar, and most processed foods are not good for you. A paleo or Ketogenic based diet is what I recommend the most to women who are Estradiol dominant.
I recommend taking DIM to help reduce the amount of estrogen in the body. DIM comes from cruciferous vegetables, such as cabbage, broccoli, and cauliflower. If you wanted to benefit from your estrogen balance, you would have to eat a lot of Brussel sprouts. DIM can be taken in a capsule form at 100mg/day.
Calcium and D-Glucarate are related.
The body excretes used hormones before they can become re-absorbed. Rats with large amounts of Calcium-D-Glucarate had lower levels of estrogen in their urine. People with cancer or high estrogen can benefit from taking as much as 3000-5000mg a day.
Estrogen and progesterone work together to achieve a balanced hormones. There is a 75% drop in progesterone from 35 to 50 years old. Estrogen is only down by a third.
There is not enough progesterone to balance the amount of estrogen in our body because of the gradual drop in estrogen and severe drop in progesterone. Many women in their mid-thirties, most women during peri-menopause (mid-forties), and essentially all women during menopause are overloading with estrogen. Most women suffer from a deficiency of the reproductive hormones progesterone and valine. Taking a natural form of progesterone called bio-identical progesterone can help eliminate the symptoms and discomfort of estrogen dominance without the side effects associated with synthetic hormone replacement therapy. You can talk to your doctor or doctor’s assistant about a prescription for bio-identical progesterone and see if that’s something you’d like to try.
35 grams of fiber a day is what women should strive for. Fiber helps your bowels to be regular which will help eliminate toxins from the body. Excess cholesterol-based hormones like estrogen and testosterone can be produced by the bile produced by the liver, which can then be bound to soluble fiber in the gut and excreted in the stool, which may help lower them.
10. Lower stress
cortisol helps you deal with stress by making the hormone. The primary raw material for producing cortisol is progesterone. The body will use progesterone to support cortisol production when the adrenals are in high stress. In comparison to estrogen, you will be left with low progesterone. Lowering stress can have a huge impact on hormones. Ladies, chill out, and you might lose a few pounds.
