• Estrogen Dominance

    Estrogen Dominance

    Estrogen dominance is certainly a problem.

    I find Estrogen Dominance mostly in women but also in men and children. Most of the children I find have increased hormones due to their parents being on hormones. Transference happens when someone who is on hormones touches someone else and the hormone transfers through the skin. This is one of the problems with hormone replacement therapy.
    Estrogen Dominance can happen when a woman has excessive, normal or deficient estrogen but has very little progesterone compared to the estrogen level. So women with low estrogen can be estrogen dominant if their progesterone is low enough.

    How are you receiving Estrogen?

    Unknowingly, excess estrogen can be received from many sources. Xenoestrogens imitate estrogen in the body. They are non-biodegradable and fat soluble. Major sources include plastic bottles, detergents, petroleum products, make-up, skin care, pesticides, spermicides, condoms, and vaginal gels. Styrofoam cups are also a big problem especially with hot coffee. Never heat your food in plastic as this can cause a problem. Any of these can contribute to estrogen dominance.

    How can I help you?

    It is essential to reduce your exposure to the Xenoestrogens. Supplementation can help greatly but is different for each patient. The Liver pathways which deal with estrogen are sulfation and methylation. Certain supplements can be very helpful in clearing those pathways. Adrenal support is also essential in these patients. Also using proper supplementation to clear excess hormones is needed. To start with the 21 day purification program has amazing benefits to “clear the table” and clear hormones through detoxification. After 21 days getting started with other products to give the body the support that it needs is essential.

    I discourage you from going directly to hormones.

    The worst thing to do is just go get on hormones. Though it may give some relief of symptoms it will downregulate the HP axis in the brain and lead possibly to further problems including transference as described above. Women who have husbands on testosterone will by touch get some testosterone which can be converted to more estrogen. Estrogen sensitive cancers are breast, uterus, ovary and cervix so excess estrogen is the last thing that you need. If you feel like you may have estrogen dominance and have any questions please give me a call.
