What is Estrogen Dominance

Estrogen dominance is a type of hormonal imbalance in which the body produces too much estrogen.


Estrogen dominance can cause a host of problems including PMS, short cycles and heavy periods, uterine fibroids, endometriosis, allergies, decreased libido, fatigue, fibrocystic breasts, headaches, infertility, irritability, and fat gain around the abdomen and thighs. It can also cause breast, uterine, and ovarian cancers, cervical dysplasia, and may contribute to menopausal symptoms. But it can also affect men, causing infertility, low libido, enlarged prostate, breast swelling, and erectile dysfunction.


What are the symptoms?

  • Hair loss and thinning of hair and eyebrows

  • Depression and anxiety, mood swings, and irritability

  • Trouble falling sleeping and frequent waking

  • Decreased sex drive

  • Increased PMS

  • Breast tenderness and/or fibrocystic breasts.

  • PCOS- polycystic ovarian syndrome

What can you do if you suspect you have estrogen dominance?

Ask for to help you limit your exposure to “xenoestrogens” — which are commonly found in plastics, skin care products, sunscreen, chlorine products and insecticides.


Diagnosing estrogen dominance requires precisely timed testing, so if you have symptoms then we will always suggest going to your GP/GYN in the first instance to get it confirmed. Once you have it confirmed we can offer a range of products or we a can help guide you through a detox program to start you on the healing path.
