What is Estrogen Dominance?
Though it is true that some women somehow escape the ravages of Estrogen Dominance, MOST women do not.
Almost All Women end up in an Estrogen Dominant state starting about 10 years before they go through Menopause. This is the time that their Progesterone starts to decline WITHOUT the Estrogen yet starting to decline.
This is actually a DANGEROUS TIME for Midlife Women!
Progesterone is the COUNTER hormone to Estrogen! Progesterone keeps Estrogen's effects in check! Without adequate Progesterone, Estrogen can cause dangerous changes to the DNA of our cells.
So the BALANCE between Progesterone and Estrogen is critical.
The graph below shows how Progesterone declines long before Estrogen. And this is the time we often start having changes in our mood like anxiety and depression. And it is also common to suffer with insomnia and experience headaches during the second half of our cycle.
But you won't find many doctors warning you of these changes. Doctors are taught all about depression, anxiety, insomnia and migraines... but not about hormones... so you're bound to end up on a pill to resolve symptoms than get advice on how to balance your hormones!
