Did you know that PMS, blood sugar levels and estrogen dominance all have similar symptoms? Estrogen dominance is when the body has excess estrogen and is unopposed or not balanced by progesterone. This syndrome occurs due to specific situations, such as hormone replacement therapy, exposure to xenoestrogens, birth control pills, and hysterectomies. Xenoestrogens are found in skin care, food, insecticides, and building supplies.
According to Dr. John Lee , M.D. he feels that, “estrogen dominance is a huge factor in conditions such as, uterine fibroids, breast/uterine cancer, premenopausal bone loss, PMS and Fibrocystic breasts.”
Here is a list of symptoms that can be caused or made worse by estrogen dominance:
Headaches, fatigue, irritability, mood swings, insomnia, infertility, allergies, autoimmune disorders, osteoporosis, and PMS
Diet plays a role in estrogen dominance. Looking closely at what foods are being eaten and the quantity is very important for the balancing of a women’s hormones.
