There is an epidemic nobody is talking about and that is estrogen dominance in women which can be quite dangerous. It is linked to several types of cancer, autoimmune diseases, weight gain, infertility and depression. After the age of 35 many women start going through some changes in their hormonal balance but nowadays even younger women suffer from excessive estrogen. The reproductive hormones in the female body are in a very fine balance and they regulate not only the monthly period but also the metabolism, the energy balance and overall health condition of the woman. The endocrine system is quite affected by the estrogen as an imbalance there can disturb the insulin levels, thyroid hormones production, weight proportions and the functioning of the major organs like the liver, pancreas, stomach, intestines and others.
What are the symptoms of estrogen dominance?
Estrogen dominance is the condition when the hormones from the group of estrogen become the prevailing ones dominating over other reproductive hormones like progesterone, follicle-stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone. The liver is the organ where the elimination of the excessive estrogen takes place and when its functioning is compromised, the levels of the estrogen start to increase. The symptoms of estrogen dominance may vary from mild to severe and can become worse if you experience too much stress in your life. If you are in your thirties or older, you probably already see some signs of high estrogen levels. Here is a list of some of the symptoms:
- Irregular or heavy periods
- Inflammation in different parts of the body
- Water retention
- Bloating, slow metabolism and other digestive issues
- Thyroid dysfunction
- Mood swings and irritation
- Hair loss and saggy skin
- Chronic fatigue
- PMS and cramps around the time of the period
- PCOS (Polycystic ovary syndrome)
- Weight gain and increased belly fat
- Brain fog and memory loss
- Headaches and migraine
- Sleeping disorders
Why do you have estrogen dominance?
Nowadays, women experience estrogen dominance much more than in the past and this is linked to the pollution that is now everywhere. All the chemicals in the water, air and food affect the female body and its delicate hormonal balance. There are more factors which can have their role in the hormonal imbalance and stress is huge one too. Intense workouts, extreme diets, emotional distress, excessive body fat and ageing are also among the causes of estrogen dominance.
Additionally, a poor diet without enough protein, fiber, fresh fruits and vegetables but rich in processed foods, sweet things and alcohol on a regular basis, can make things even worse. In your middle thirties, the ovaries start producing less progesterone which is the hormone which naturally balances the increased levels of estrogen. Stress is another major factor when we speak about hormonal imbalances as the body gives priority to the cortisol production and progesterone levels drop really fast. Additionally, all the plastic that we all use in our daily life is full of xenoestrogens, they mimic the estrogen molecules and are really hard to eliminate from the body.

Why do you need to support your liver?
Now, let us talk a bot about the liver. This organ which is trying to cleanse the body from all the toxins, waste material left from the metabolism, excessive fat and hormones, and anything else that is not supposed to stay inside. Moreover, the liver is also responsible for the elimination of the excessive estrogen. If the liver is not working properly, the estrogen stays in the body. So, if you experience estrogen dominance, it is highly recommended to change your diet in a way to support the liver by limiting sugar consumption, alcohol intake and processed foods. All these artificial ingredients and chemicals in the processed foods load the liver with additional work.
On the other hand, many women experience sugar sensitivity or early stages of insulin resistance without even knowing it. This results in increased visceral or belly fat which hardens the normal functioning of the inner organs and shows a liver malfunction. How to heal the liver without adding more chemicals in the form of pills in the bloodstream? A great way to support and heal your liver is to apply a low level laser therapy like coMra. This gentle but highly effective method will increase the energy levels in the cells supporting their healing and recovery. Several minutes per day are enough to give a little boost to your liver. While It is a major organ which detoxifies the body constantly, this cold laser will significantly improve its condition and will induce its recovery and regeneration.
