ESTROGEN DOMINANCE - How to Reduce Estrogen in the Body

Estrogens

Reduce Estrogen Levels in the Body

 

 

      Several health problems are associated with an estrogen dominance effect – whereby an imbalance of estrogen over PROGESTERONE in women (or TESTOSTERONE in men) is having an overall estrogenic effect. The most well-known repercussion of this is to cause over-proliferation of cells in many reproductive cancers and female issues, such as polycystic ovarian syndrome, ovarian fibroids,  fibrocystic disease of the breast.

 

 

      Reasons why we are facing an estrogen dominance problem:

 

Why has Estrogen Dominance become so Prevalent

 

      How to reduce body’s estrogen levels to resolve estrogen dominance situation:

 

 Reduce estrogenic intake

 Inhibit estrogen production

 Reduce Xenoestrogen Exposure

 Help Liver to better eliminate estrogen

 MODERATELY Supplement diet with Plant Estrogens (Phytoestrogens) for anti-estrogenic effect

 Some drugs inhibit estrogen

 Eat your crucifer vegetables!
