Posted on

Estrogen is the primary female hormone that is responsible for the development and regulation of the reproductive system and gender characteristics like underarm hair, the growth of the breasts, and the menstrual cycle. It is very important to control it and keep it on a normal level because excessive estrogen can cause cancer among women. cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff

I got a lot of questions about DIM so let’s dive in today. Left pic is when I started DIM last month after knowing all the below and still got one cyst on my cheek and neck. Far less reactive bc I knew what I was doing this time. . . DIM (Diindolylmethane) is an aromatase inhibitor that blocks conversion of testosterone into estrogen. It is a compound found in cruciferous vegetables 🥦 and helps the “bad” estrogens break down into the “good” protective metabolites. It helps the liver detox estrogen. . . However, this does not mean it’s for everyone. If you are NOT estrogen dominant this can make your acne MUCH worse. Testing is always the best option but, often a health professional like myself can make conclusions based on symptoms. . . If your gut, liver, lymph aren’t flowing throwing this supplement at your body can also cause massive breakouts. When I first took it years ago, I had done zero gut and liver work and the result was the worst break out I had ever experienced. My breasts also got hard lumps and my period was affected. . . Don’t start blindly taking supplements without professional advice as it can aggravate things and wreak havoc on the body. What works for one person to get clear might not be your individual path. Don’t trust anyone and everyone on Instagram even if they have a good before and after picture. Not everyone out there has YOUR best health and acne interests at heart. . . Had a cancellation so opening on Thursday! DM if you want to get on a plan that is customized for you to get clear ❤️

There are 2 ways that estrogen levels rise naturally and that is during puberty and pregnancy. But it also can happen for some other reasons. We can get excessive estrogen from the environment or our diet. cool stuff, cool stuff, cool stuff

Nowadays it is not difficult to increase our level of estrogen, because it’s contained in foods that have toxic pesticides, herbicides, and growth hormones. Be careful when you buy products at the supermarket: check the description and where it was produced.

Except for those reasons, there can be other causes that are connected to our lifestyle:

  1. Excessive alcohol and medication consumption
  2. Heart disease, diabetes, obesity, and high blood pressure
  3. Stress

Signs of high estrogen in women

Pay attention to these signs and don’t hesitate to go to the doctor if you find something that’s disturbing you. If your level of estrogen is high, you might feel potential symptoms like:

1. Swelling and tenderness in your breasts

Many women feel changes in their breasts during their cycle and pregnancy because the breasts are very sensitive to hormones. If you experience sore breasts or if you’ve noticed that they’re swollen more than usual, this can be because of high estrogen.

2. Mood swings

Estrogen impacts your mental state and emotions. These feelings will kind of remind you of PMS symptoms. You may feel depressed or have anxiety and your emotions can be all over the place for no good reason.
