Estrogen plays numerous roles in the human body, including regulating blood sugar, supporting good bones and cardiovascular health, promoting conception, and ensuring normal immune function.
1. Eliminate Regularly
Your body cannot get rid of extra estrogen if you don’t have regular bowel movements. Some probable causes for estrogen re-circulation include having insufficient digestive enzymes and/or low stomach acid (anyone taking acid blockers). Poor elimination and estrogen dominance can also be caused by low magnesium levels, dehydration, a low fiber diet, dysbiosis, or an imbalance of bacteria in the stomach, and other factors.
2. Reduce Toxin Exposure
This includes contaminants in food, personal care products, cleaning supplies, and even water. These pollutants could disturb your hormone balance and cause endocrine disruption. Our food and water are frequently contaminated with the herbicide glyphosate, but you can lower your overall toxic load by eating organic food and using a water filter.
3. Reduce Stress
Progesterone and cortisol can be produced from the hormone pregnenolone. The total capacity to create progesterone declines as the demand to produce cortisol, one of the body’s stress hormones, increases. Erectile dysfunction is the eventual outcome. Therefore, be sure to incorporate a variety of stress-reducing activities, such as deep breathing exercises, heart-centered meditation, yoga, prayer, journaling, being in nature, and meaningfully interacting with others.
4. Improve Body Composition
Adipose tissue or fat accumulation raises the level of aromatase, which increases the quantity of estrogen produced from androgen hormones. You can decrease estrogen and have better hormonal balance by decreasing fat and building muscle.
