10 Signs You May Have Estrogen Dominance

Estrogen is essential for many roles in the human body ranging from fertility, proper immune function, maintaining healthy bones and cardiovascular health as well as regulating blood sugar. Too much estrogen, however, can cause many unwanted symptoms and diseases. So, when it comes to estrogen, you want just the right amount and holistic gynecology in Atlanta can help you get there. Estrogen dominance is a term that we use when we believe you have too much estrogen compared to your other hormones.

Common signs and symptoms associated with Estrogen Dominance:

There are many factors to consider when treating estrogen dominance and if you suffer with any of the above, you may want to consider working with a provider of holistic gynecology in Atlanta.  The following are ways that you can start to address possible root causes for estrogen dominance:

1. Eliminate Regularly
If you are not having regular bowel movements your body is unable to eliminate excess estrogen.  Not having enough digestive enzymes and/or having low stomach acid (anyone on acid blockers) are some potential causes for re-circulation of estrogen. Low magnesium levels, dehydration, low fiber intake, as well as dysbiois or an imbalance of bacteria in the gut can also contribute to poor elimination and estrogen dominance.

2. Reduce Toxin Exposure
This includes food sources, toxins in personal hygiene products, cleaning products and even your drinking water. These toxins are potential endocrine disruptors and will affect your hormone balance. The herbicide glyphosate is prevalent in our food/water and by eating organic foods and using a water filter you can reduce your overall toxin load.

3. Reduce Stress
The hormone pregnenolone can get converted into progesterone and cortisol. When there is an increased need to produce cortisol (one of the body’s stress hormones) the overall availability to make progesterone decreases. The end result – estrogen dominance. So, make sure that you include a variety of stress reducing activities such as deep breathing exercises, heart-centered meditation, yoga, prayer, journaling, being in nature and connecting to others in meaningful ways.

4. Improve Body Composition
Increased adipose tissue or fat increases the amount of aromatase, which converts androgen hormones into more estrogen. By losing fat and increasing muscle you can reduce estrogen and have improved hormonal balance.
