Are You Oestrogen Dominant?

hormone womanI’ve just finished the latest factsheet for you, this time on oestrogen dominance in men and women. Here’s a flavour for you and you can continue reading the free factsheet here for more on how to test and what to do about it if you are. Hope it helps..

Oestrogen Dominance

Oestrogen dominance affects both men and women but you only really ever tend to see it discussed for women. It basically means where your oestrogen to progesterone ratio is out – the oestrogen is out of proportion.

That can be because the progesterone is too low – pretty common – and/or because the oestrogen intake from meds or the environment is too high.

Either way, too much oestrogen is not a good idea since many cancers and medical conditions are oestrogenic. Too much circulating about can be used, if you see what I mean. That might mean in endometriosis, fibroids or breast cancer, for example in women, or low libido, fertility issues, man ‘boobs’ or even prostate problems for men.

Here is a bit more info for you, taken from a factsheet written by Nutri, because it clearly gives male and female oestrogen dominance symptoms.

  1. Hi Micki – thank you as always for this great information. It sounds unlikely that the Estro Adapt would be TGF. I just thought I’d see if you already know before I start hassling them for info? Thanks, C

    1. Doubt it, Carolyn – got maltodextrin and extracts in it sadly, Maybe use the principles and look at individual products combining? This is the Purehealth blog, not the TGF one – just in case you didn’t clock that.
