High Estrogen


Estrogen is needed for reproductive, cardiovascular, nervous system, metabolic, brain and bone health. Too much can cause severe PMS, menstrual symptoms, weight gain that is difficult to lose, fibrocystic breasts, and impact fertility. It has been associated with polyps, fibroids, endometriosis, and breast cancer. High estrogen can be caused by medications (antibiotics, birth control and medication for mental/emotional disorders), food and water contaminated with insecticides and pesticides, excess body fat (estrogen stores), microbiome imbalances, stress, and exposure to hormone disrupting chemicals.
