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.
What are the symptoms of estrogen dominance?
The symptoms 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 probably you already see some signs of high estrogen levels.

Why do you have estrogen dominance?
Intense workouts, extreme diets, too much stress, excessive body fat and ageing are among the causes of estrogen dominance. Also, if you eat a poor diet without enough protein, fiber and fresh fruits and vegetables but you often eat processed foods, sweet things and drink alcohol on a regular basis. In your thirties, the ovaries are producing less progesterone which is the hormone to balance the increased levels of estrogen. Stress is a huge 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 which are hard to eliminate from the body.
Why do you need to support your liver?
Liver is the organ responsible for the elimination of excessive estrogen from the body. If the liver is not working properly, the estrogen stays in the body. So, a change in your diet will support the liver by avoiding sugar, alcohol and processed foods. All the artificial ingredients in the processed foods load the liver with additional work. Many women have sugar sensitivity or early stages of insulin resistance without even knowing it. A great way to support and heal your liver is low level laser therapy like coMra. Several minutes per day are enough to give a little boost to your liver. It is a major organ which detoxifies the body constantly, laser therapy will provide some additional energy for it to be used for healing or regeneration.
What else can you do to decrease estrogen dominance?
First of all, you need some stress management and to see in which areas in your life you use more male qualities than female. Do you work too much, are you too active, do you train intensively, are you focused on your career or your children? In other words, you need to find your own way to relax and slow everything down a bit. Again, laser therapy like coMra can help you treat your adrenal glands and your nervous system as a way to calm yourself down and enjoy life. Instead of intensive training, choose yoga, dancing or swimming, eat lots of fresh foods with enough protein and vitamins. Additionally, work towards developing your female qualities and awakening your femininity as this is also vital when we speak about hormonal balance in women.
Why should you choose laser therapy?
There are some benefits of the low level laser therapy like coMra – it is effective, painless and safe. You have to be very careful with any kind of hormone replacement therapy as adding synthetic hormones to the picture will definitely not cure the cause. With coMra, you can support the work of each organ and system in your body like liver, heart, thyroid, ovaries etc. If you have thyroid hypofunction, you can apply the treatment protocol for hypothyroidism found in the coMra user guide. If you experience symptoms of sugar sensitivity or insulin resistance, start the diabetes protocol and see how your condition will improve. The coMra therapy is totally safe, there are no negative side effects, it is easy to use, a pleasant painless procedure and it does not take too much time. The devices are small and portable and you can take them with you everywhere.
