Restore Your Body with Modern Holistic Health
Estrogen dominance is a hormonal imbalance where estrogen levels outweigh progesterone levels in the body. Although estrogen dominance is more common in women, men can suffer from this hormone imbalance as well.
Signs and Symptoms
Estrogen dominance can cause a host of problems including infertility, mood swings, thyroid dysfunction, and autoimmune conditions. This imbalance has even been linked to various types of cancer. Estrogen dominance could be due to an increase in xenoestrogens in our environment. These chemicals found in everything from food to personal care products to clothes mimic the behavior of estrogens.

- Fibrocystic breast (tenderness)

Healthier Alternatives for Estrogen Dominance
High estrogen levels in relation to progesterone can potentially be caused by several factors: poor diet, environmental estrogens, being overweight, stress, poor liver function, hormone treatments, xenoestrogens, and birth control. Considering a holistic approach to hormonal conditions is much more natural.
Estrogen and progesterone work in harmony as a system of checks and balances to maintain hormonal balances in both males and females. Estrogen dominance occurs where progesterone levels are not in balance with estrogen levels. Alternative medicine has several natural suggestions for helping heal this imbalance. Progesterone supplements can help to promote a proper hormone balance. These usually come in a cream form.
When estrogen levels are high other important nutrients tend to be low. These include magnesium, zinc, Vitamin B-complex, and Vitamin E 400 IU. Taking supplements containing these nutrients ensures your body is equipped with the tools it needs to maintain hormonal balances.
There are also supplements available that can help your body metabolize excess estrogen. Modern Holistic Health can help you make the lifestyle changes you need to improve your health.

Holistic medicine tends to help heal the body as a whole as opposed to the symptoms alone. Holism helps heal the mind, body, and environment in an attempt to improve overall wellbeing. It means paying attention to what you are subjecting your body to from environment to food to personal care products. It also addresses things like stress that can cause imbalances.
Most issues we face as humans arise in response to interacting complex factors. Holism attempts to rebalance the entire body through natural processes. Many hormone imbalances can be controlled and rectified by diet and lifestyle changes coupled with an awareness of your body and its natural functions.
Allow your body to heal itself.
