What is Estrogen?

Estrogen tends to get a bad rap but we need to remember that it is an essential hormone.

 

Why do we need estrogen?

 

Estrogen is vital to reproductive development and function, but it is also involved in the regulation of periods, stimulating mood and libido, and supporting the health of the heart, blood vessels, bones, skin, hair, and the brain.

 

Now, we want estrogen in the right amount, not too much and not too little.

 

Estrogen dominance is a common term thrown around these days which means you have too much estrogen circulating in the body relative to progesterone.

 

This can cause bloating, heavy periods, acne, headaches, PMS, breast tenderness, weight gain, anxiety, mood swings, hair loss, and insomnia.

 

Too much estrogen can result from exposure to toxins and chemicals, stress and excess cortisol, anovulation, excess weight especially abdominal fat, poor diet, conventional animal products, dysbiosis and decreased eliminatory function (liver and bowels).

Syncing your diet & lifestyle to your cycle phase

The best way to achieve a healthy hormone balance is by adopting a diet and lifestyle that is supportive of your hormones. This represents the foundation of healthy hormones and overall health in general.

Did you know that your needs change depending on where you are in your cycle? Find out below how you can best support your hormones throughout the month:
