Estrogen dominance is a condition that occurs in men when the levels of testosterone fall down too much. Estrogen is also produced by men’s body but in very small quantities. Estrogen dominance is mainly caused because of the imbalance of hormones. It can even occur in women when the progesterone and estrogen balance is skewed.
In women estrogen and progesterone both play a vital role in the menstrual cycle. In the first half of the menstrual cycle, the levels of estrogen increases and falls after ovulation, while the level of progesterone rises after the egg has been released and at the end of the menstrual cycle it completely stops.
There are several reasons for the hormonal imbalance in the body, for examples, poor lifestyle and habits like smoking and alcoholism, it could also be environmental factors like xenoestrogens, and if you have been through hormone replacement therapy then it could be one of the contributing factors. If you have been taking birth control pills or been too stressed out, then it could be one of the contributing factors. In men when there is estrogen dominance the symptoms will show clearly like growth of breasts and also female pattern of growth in the body. In women, the symptoms are dry skin and also mood swings.
When you have experienced weight gain, or have tenderness in the breast and also headaches or migraines, then there is probably a hormonal imbalance.
There are several kinds of treatments available for hormonal imbalance and some of them are natural therapies also. Some of the natural therapies are replacing progesterone through bio identical hormones. This kind of treatment is available through creams and tablets and even injections.
There are herbal remedies also available like Chinese herbs like ginseng and also prim rose and wild yam. There are other herbs like black cohosh and also chaste berry. Basically these hormones replace the levels of progesterone in the body. Progesterone is required to balance the levels of estrogen.
Hormonal balance can also be achieved through diet. If you follow a simple diet that is low on carbs and also cut down fried and salty foods, then the levels of the hormones can be balanced. You need foods which contain phytoestrogens, so that they help to normalize the hormonal levels in the body. Apples, soy and whole grains are excellent source of this hormone. You also need to reduce the usage of cosmetics and personal care products for the improvement of the skin condition.
