Are the most common Hormonal Imbalances?
Researchers have now identified excess estrogen to be as great a risk factor for obesity—in both sexes—as poor eating habits and lack of exercise. There are two ways to accumulate excess estrogen in the body: we either produce too much of it on our own or acquire it from our environment or diet. We are constantly exposed to estrogen-like compounds in foods that contain toxic pesticides, herbicides and growth hormones. A premenopausal woman with estrogen dominance will likely have PMS, too much body fat around the hips and difficulty losing weight. Menopausal women and, yes, men too, may experience low libido, memory loss, poor motivation, depression, loss of muscle mass and increased belly fat.
Do you suffer from?
Spider or varicose veins Cellulite Heavy menstrual bleeding PMS characterized by breast tenderness, water retention, bloating, swelling and/or weight gain Fibrocystic breast disease Prostate enlargement Erectile dysfunction Breast growth (men) Loss of morning erection Irritability, mood swings or anxiety Headaches or migraines (especially in women before their menses) High alcohol consumption (> 4 drinks per week for women and > 7 drinks per week for men) Autoimmune disease or allergies Fat gain around “love handles” or abdomen (men) Fat gain at the hips (women) Current use of hormone replacement therapy or birth control pills (Warning score: > 6)
Estrogen balance is essential for achieving and maintaining fat loss. In men and premenopausal women, estrogen dominance causes toxic fat gain, water retention, bloating and a host of other health and wellness issues. While premenopausal women with too much estrogen tend to have the pear-shape body type with more weight at the hips, both men and menopausal women with this excess exhibit an apple shape with more fat accumulation in the abdominal area. Researchers have now identified excess estrogen to be just as great a risk factor for obesity—in both sexes—as poor eating habits and lack of exercise.
