Hey ladies! Have you ever heard of estrogen dominance? If not, don't worry, you're not alone. It's a term that's been floating around for a while now, but not everyone is familiar with what it means. So, let's dive into it and see if it affects you or someone you know.

Estrogen dominance refers to a condition where there's an imbalance between estrogen and progesterone levels in a woman's body. This can happen to women of any age, but it's most common in women approaching menopause or who are postmenopausal.

Our bodies are controlled by a delicate balance of hormones and estrogen and progesterone are two of the most important ones. Estrogen helps regulate the menstrual cycle and prepares the uterus for pregnancy, while progesterone maintains the uterine lining and prepares the body for pregnancy. When this balance gets disrupted, it can cause a number of symptoms that can seriously affect our daily lives.

So, what are the symptoms of estrogen dominance? Well, there are a ton, but some of the most common ones include weight gain, mood swings, and depression. Hot flashes, night sweats, and insomnia can also be a problem. And let's not forget about irritability, anxiety, and sadness. It's a lot to handle, right?

But where does estrogen dominance come from? There are several potential causes, such as hormonal imbalances from conditions like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), or lifestyle factors like diet, stress, and exposure to toxins. Women who have had a hysterectomy or oophorectomy, or who are taking hormone replacement therapy, may also be at a higher risk.

So, what can be done to help relieve issues related to estrogen imbalance? The good news is that there are several things you can do! For starters, you can try making some dietary and lifestyle changes, like reducing your exposure to toxins, eating a healthy and balanced diet, and reducing stress levels. There are also several natural ingredients that can help rebalance hormone levels to alleviate symptoms related to estrogen dominance. Check out our blog post on those. 

In conclusion, estrogen dominance is a condition that affects a lot of women and can cause some serious symptoms. But the good news is that there are things you can do to help manage it. So, if you're feeling any of the symptoms we discussed, don't hesitate to talk to a nutritionist, naturopath or your doctor. They can help you determine if estrogen dominance is the culprit and what steps you can take to feel like yourself again.
