In this episode, I interview Kate Vazquez about what Estrogen Excess or more commonly known as “Estrogen Excess” is, when to check your hormones, the phases of the menstrual cycle, signs of too much estrogen, how it becomes imbalanced and what to do to get it back in check.
Stress is a huge contributing factor to estrogen excess and probably the one we least want to admit or work towards adjusting.
Gut health is another one that is a huge contributor to estrogen excess because of the Estrobolome (listen to this episode or episode 37 for more information about how our gut microbiome impacts our estrogen).
Next up we have inflammation from processed foods, sugar and inflammatory oils! Eek! We have to get that inflammation under control in order to have healthy estrogen levels. One of ways to support this is through reducing those foods listed above and increasing nutrient dense foods
Speaking of nutrient dense foods - look for foods rich in magnesium, b vitamin (esp b6), Vitamin C in order to replenish the reserves we need to metabolize estrogen.
Histamine is yet another place we need to look when it comes to estrogen. I’ve had clients reduce histamine rich foods and see PMS be eliminated. We also discuss histamine in Episode 44.
We talk about several other factors and what to do about them in order to feel better in the episode! I hope you enjoy!
