Balanced hormones are the name of the game when it comes to hormonal bliss. Estrogen needs to balance with progesterone (think “pro-gestation” or the pregnancy hormone). Together, estrogen and progesterone need to be in balanced to support strong bones, smooth skin, optimal metabolism, and prevention of blood clots. When these get out of whack and you have more estrogen relative to other sex-hormones, this is called “Estrogen Dominance”. Signs of Estrogen Dominance: Water retention Breast Tenderness Painful periods Endometriosis Mood swings Foggy, sleepless, weepy Headaches Facial reddening Severe PMS Hair Loss Bloating Difficulty losing weight Fatigue Insomnia Decreased libido Memory loss Poor concentration Breast cancer (in men and women) Nicole’s Holistic Nutrition Approaches Include: Education on what is going on in your body if you have estrogen dominance Foods to avoid to best manage your condition Therapeutic foods to boost your natural detoxification pathways How to reduce estrogen exposure in your home and environment Targeted and individualized supplementation protocols Navigating fertility with estrogen dominance Recommended Laboratory Tests: DUTCH Hormone Testing SpectraCell Micronutrient Panel SpectraCell CardioMetabolic Panel Oxford Biomedical LEAP MRT Food Sensitivity Panel Nicole is happy to review labs drawn by your physician (including hormonal panels, comprehensive metabolic panels, complete blood counts, thyroid panels, urinalysis, and others as warranted) Call us at 281-741-9447 or contact us online to schedule your private consultation today.
