If you are one of many women who suffer from severe Perimenopause symptoms, including (but not limited to):
- Extreme PMS
- Ovarian cysts
- Uterine fibers
- Mood changes
- Weight gain
- Low libido
Then you are likely to be suffering from the area of estrogen, a condition in which you have a large amount of estrogen and not enough progesterone.
Remember that this is only a fraction of the possible symptoms due to estrogen dominance. The complete list is quite long.
The truth is that because of the abundance of synthetic hormones in our environment, we all need some estrogen control at a certain level. Men and boys not excluded …
So, what are we doing about it? What is the most effective estrogen dominance treatment?
As much as I would like to tell you that there is a simple cure, a pill that you could take to balance your hormones, that’s just not true.
In fact, I would go so far as to say that there is no treatment plan for everyone.
The best treatment for estrogen dominance:
American girls suffer from estrogen control for several reasons. Some of us are exposed to too many chemicals. Others are just too stressed.
The diet alone can be a big contributor. If you follow a natural health, you already know that what you eat is very important. The same is true for hormonal health. If you consume a large quantity of conventional meat and dairy products, directly ingest a series of xenohormone chemicals. These synthetic hormones are a disaster for our health and contribute significantly to the estrogen field.
Sugar is also a big no-no. If you follow a high sugar diet, like most Americans, you undermine your hormonal health. Sugar causes a spike in the hormone cortisol. High levels of cortisol disrupt the important and delicate process of estrogen / progesterone balance. It reduces progesterone and raises estrogen, which aggravates the situation.
And while we talk about high cortisol, stress also contributes a lot. As you know, high stress causes an increase in cortisol. When you have high cortisol levels, you have the scenario described above.
As you can see, the estrogen domain has many contributors. Addressing one area of your life will not lead to true healing. You must adopt a multifaceted approach. And everyone should adapt to their particular situation accordingly.
One thing is certain. A holistic approach is essential. This includes observing all areas of your life including diet, exercise, stress management, and exposure to toxins.
