Estrogen Dominance: When Hormones and the Environment Conspire

Air fresheners, birth control pills, canned foods, cosmetics, and plastic containers all contain foreign estrogens that contribute to estrogen dominance. This form of hormone imbalance takes a woman’s body from a natural ebb and flow of estrogen and progesterone to what can seem like a tidal wave of symptoms during perimenopause and menopause. These symptoms can be made worse by the increased stress in our lives that depletes our progesterone and makes the hormonal imbalance worse. Managing naturally occurring estrogen and limiting or eliminating xeno (foreign) estrogens are keys to smoother sailing through this next stage of a woman’s life.
