Estrogen is the primary female sex hormone that regulates the function of the female reproductive system and some secondary sex characteristics. Due to this, the hormone is highly important and its levels should always be kept in check. However, many women are suffering from estrogen dominance, which can cause a variety of health problems.

 

 

 

 

 

Here are the 10 most common signs of estrogen dominance:

  • Heavy menstrual periods;
  • Bad PMS;
  • Low sex drive;
  • Fatigue;
  • Sleeping disorders;
  • Thyroid disorders;
  • Slow metabolism;
  • Weight gain;
  • Hair loss;
  • Brain fog.

 

Here are 3 steps which will help you remove the excess estrogen from your body and restore the hormonal balance as well:

 

Avoid exposure toxenoestrogens

Xenoestrogens are compound which mimic estrogen in the body and artificially raise its levels. They can be found in plastic water bottles and Tupperware, soy protein isolate, BPA cans, commercial cosmetic products, dryer sheets and birth control pills, so it’s best to stay away from these items.

 

Improve your elimination

Improper elimination is one of the main factors for estrogen dominance. In order to regulate the levels of the hormone, you need to improve your elimination, and you can do it by drinking plenty of water every day. Consuming fiber-rich foods can help as well, as can adding vegetables to all your meals. Consume probiotics (kefir, miso, tempeh, yogurt) more often, and make sure to take magnesium supplements as well which can boost your digestion and bowel movement.

 

To promote better elimination, you should exercise regularly and go to saunas more often. Massaging your body can improve lymph flow and promote better elimination, as can dry brushing after every shower.

 

Improve your liver health

The liver is an important organ that is responsible for removing toxins and waste from the body. The liver eliminates waste in two phases – in the first, it turns the harmful compounds to milder forms, and in the second it converts them to water-soluble compounds that can be eliminate through urine.

 

In order to improve your liver function, you should stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water, avoid alcohol and eat a healthy diet rich in whole foods and vegetables such as kale, dark leafy greens, onions, garlic, leeks, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, shallots and beets. Taking vitamin B supplements can help as well, and make sure to balance your hormones with a hormone balancing formula that includes calcium-D-Glucarate, Indole-3-Carbinol and sulforaphane.

 

Herbs such as burdock, red clover, Oregon grape root, gentian, licorice, milk thistle and dandelion root can also improve your liver function and detoxify your body of harmful compounds and excess estrogen.
