3 steps to treat estrogen dominance (ED) by rebalancing your hormones

How to treat estrogen dominance 1-2-3

The objective is to REBALANCE your hormone levels

--- and NOT to RESTORE your levels to those of a person in their 20s or 30s.    E.g. A menopausal woman no longer needs the higher hormone levels required for reproduction.

Treatment for estrogen dominance corrects an imbalance of:

•   Too much estrogen relative to progesterone in women

•   Too much estrogen relative to TESTOSTERONE, DHT and other androgens  in men.

 which can wreak havoc with many of the body's systems and cause serious health problems.

Treating estrogen dominance can:

•  Shrink ovarian cysts;

•  Stop endometriosis;

•  Shrink an enlarged prostate (BPH);

•  Reverse cancer of reproductive organs

•  Protect nerves/Aid repair

•  Reduce facial hair

•  Much more . . .

Who may need treatment for estrogen dominance?

Treatment for estrogen dominance involves 3 steps:

(1) Use available tactics to reduce bodys excessive estrogen levels

The first approach to an estrogen dominance over PROGESTERONE (in women) or TESTOSTERONE (in men) is to reduce estrogen levels in the body:

Reduce estrogen levels

(2) Use natural methods to boost body's PROGESTERONE levels

Help adrenal glands increase their PROGESTERONE production

The innermost layer of the adrenal glands produces small amounts of the sex hormones (Androgens, estrogens and PROGESTERONE )

•   Excessive  vitamin E (>600IU) intake reduces LDL-Cholesterol - a precursor for producing PROGESTERONE

•  High intake of animal fats and elevated estrogen levels decrease PROGESTERONE synthesis

•  Vitamin A, Vitamin E and Vitamin B5 promote PROGESTERONE synthesis  (according to Dr. Ray Peat) Raymond F. Peat, 1995

•  PROGESTERONE-boosting Foods.   These include: avocado, raw nuts and seeds, olives, salmon and tuna;

•  Hormone balancing herbs.     Dong Quai, Wild yams, Macafem, Licorice, Vitex

Try and reduce stress

Stress uses up PROGESTERONE.    When under stress, most of the PROGESTERONE produced by the body is converted into the corticosteroid hormones to deal with emotional stress or fight or flight situations. This creates an estrogen dominance situation leading to insomnia and anxiety, which further taxes the adrenals, and a vicious cycle continues as PROGESTERONE is used to make stress hormones. Weakened adrenal glands will never allow the hormones to find proper equilibrium

(3) Supplement with bio-identical PROGESTERONE

But only AFTER using above tactics to reduce estrogen and naturally increase PROGESTERONE

PROGESTERONE supplementation may be beneficial when you are living today's 'Typical' lifestyle.    It helps to counter-balance an excess estrogen presence. However, decreasing the body's estrogen levels should always be the first approach.

How does PROGESTERONE counter estrogen?

•   PROGESTERONE inhibits the transcription of the aromatase enzyme gene required for estrogen production;

•   PROGESTERONE desensitizes the estrogen receptors;

How to supplement PROGESTERONE 

With estrogen dominance, also boost thyroid function using iodine supplementation

Estrogen reduces thyroid function by increasing thyroid binding globulin (TBG), which binds thyroid hormone making it inactive.   This provides an explanation for why hypothyroid symptoms are similar to estrogen dominance symptoms
