How Excess Estrogen Affects the Female Body


Estrogen, progesterone, follicle stimulating hormone, testosterone …all these hormones are taking part in the reproductive health of a woman. Their fine balance can be disrupted by stress, diet changes, certain conditions, the mindset and the emotions of the woman, by the food she eats and the environment where she lives. So many things around us contain different chemicals which are unknown for the human body and still it encounters them on a daily basis. One of the results might be excess estrogen. How will that affect your health and why it is so dangerous?

What Causes High Estrogen

Estrogen is known as the female reproductive hormone and there are several types of estrogen in the female body, estradiol is the primary one. There are changes in the female body which occur naturally with age, after puberty she is in her reproductive age and then around 45-55 years of age, the woman reaches her perimenopause and menopause stage. The common practice at that point in her life, the woman to be offered hormone replacement therapy with estrogen which puts her at risk of developing blood clots, stroke and even tumours. However, the main thing is that the excess estrogen has to be eliminated by the liver and if this does not happen, she might end up with too high levels of estrogen. That is why the liver is the organ that needs additional support by non-invasive methods like cold laser therapy, fasting and detox programs, certain herbs and supplements. 

Additionally to that, excess estrogen might be caused by foods like soy, eggs and meat, especially these animal products which come from places where they give additional estrogen to the animals to make them grow faster. Plastic bottles and containers contain xenoestrogens which mimic estrogen in the female body and disrupt the elimination process. This means that in time, more and more estrogen is flowing in the body without the option of getting rid of it. Candida infections, diabetes and other endocrine diseases might also cause excess estrogen. Low levels of progesterone in the female body will eventually lead to estrogen dominance and that also usually occurs after a certain age, but these days more younger women are suffering from any form of hormonal imbalance.
