If you are experiencing symptoms of an endocrine disorder of any kind, then this is the book for you. The main disorder covered in this book, however, is estrogen dominance. In this book, we will go over some answers for some of the following questions: What is estrogen dominance? What are some of the best ways to combat the disease and heal from it naturally? What are some of the effects of high and low estrogen? Is this disease fatal? Are women the only sex to suffer from estrogen dominance? How do you cope with it? What do you do after you conquer it?
Estrogen dominance is a complex issue for a person to face. It is generally defined as the state in which the amount of estrogen is greater than that of progesterone in the body. This is typically caused by a decrease in a person’s level of progesterone without a complementary decrease in his or her level of estrogen. There is, however, no set guideline on the amount of excess estrogen that constitutes estrogen dominance. It is determined by the amount of estrogen in relation to other sex hormones.
Where there exists an excess or deficiency of any specific hormone throughout the body’s endocrine system, overall imbalances start to occur, and health problems start to rear their heads. Among other situations, this can occur when there is too much estrogen in a person’s system and not enough progesterone to counteract it all.
Not only does estrogen dominance plague women, but males are also susceptible to the disorder. The importance of estrogen in a man’s body is often severely overlooked. This hormone, among other things, regulates a man’s levels of testosterone, his bone health, several brain functions, skin health, his cholesterol levels, cardiovascular functions, and his sexual function/libido.
