It is quite normal for women with endometriosis to suffer from too much estrogen in their body. It is commonly called estrogen dominance. It is attributed to many different things but one major contributor is the amount of xenoestrogens in our bodies.
What are xenoestrogens? Essentially, they are substances found in our environment, which mimic our own estrogens. The problem with them is that they are super powerful—so instead of demonstrating a moderate level of estrogen in our body, they provide the body with heaps of estrogens. This causes an imbalance, known as estrogen dominance.
The problem with estrogen dominance is that it makes our endometriosis much worse as it makes the misplaced cells grow faster and more. Which is not something we want!
Often women are suffering from estrogen dominance and don’t realize that many of their health concerns are closely related. For instance, being bloated and retaining water is associated with estrogen dominance. So are migraine headaches.
So, I thought I would provide you with a free test, which allows you to establish how your hormone balance is. Naturally, you can also get this scientifically tested through a saliva test but at least this way you also know what symptoms to look out for.
Dr. John Lee was a renowned author who was one of the first doctors to really question HRT (hormone replacement therapy), hysterectomies and synthetic hormones given to women for what he called “simple hormone imbalance”. You can read heaps more about him and his methods of healing this imbalance through his book What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Menopause (TM): The Breakthrough Book on Natural Hormone Balance.
How did your results pan out? How out of balance are you? I know many of my symptoms were reduced just by changing my diet.
