Preparing for National Women’s Health Week, I checked what is “trending” in women’s health and I found something VERY interesting.

NWHW-banner May 10-16 2015Three of the top seven concerns for women are:

  • Endometriosis
  • PMS
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

Each of these have very different symptoms, but all are related to basically the same root problem.What do these have in common?  Hormones!  Specifically, hormonal imbalance.

Have you ever heard the term “estrogen dominance”?  Interestingly enough, hormonal imbalance can present itself in many different ways; but in the final analysis, resolving these health issues are very much the same – getting our body’s hormones back into balance.

First understand that all estrogen is not bad – in fact there are three types of human estrogen.  You can google what they are and how they compare.  You can also google “xeno-estrogens” which mimics a the high-powered estrogen, but is a “fake” produced when your body is exposed to chemicals that can create a strong estrogenic effect.

What’s a body to do to get hormones into balance?  We can help with a personalized plan. Most people get results with some very basic actionable steps.  Below are common women’s health issues from A-Z.  Be proactive, because the body is an amazing thing when given the tools and nutrition it needs to heal and restore itself.

“What this all means is that the theory of estrogen dominance is very real, but its significance lies in the overall ratio of estrogen to progesterone — and this ratio is an individualized and dynamic one. Of all women experiencing symptoms of estrogen dominance, some with low levels of progesterone may do very well with progesterone supplementation, whereas others with normal progesterone levels may be better off focusing on changes that can normalize their estrogen or testosterone levels. How do you know where you fit in? The only way to really tell is to have your hormone levels checked and take action from there.”
