If I asked you what you thought about your period, what would you say?
Do you feel self conscious because of pre period puffiness? Are your breasts sore and tender too?
Do you dread the pain that you suffer with as your period arrives? Or is inconvenient a better description due to your heavy flow?
If you're suffering from stubborn cycle symptoms, it's likely your hormonal system needs a service. These symptoms described are just some that are contributed by a hormone imbalance, called oestrogen dominance.
As a Naturopath, I've seen all sorts of hormone imbalances, ranging from high to low sex, thyroid and adrenal hormones, impacting cycles, skin, weight, moods and more. But I'd have to say the most common imbalance I've come across in clinical practice, is heightened oestrogen activity.
There are multiple reasons your body can have high levels of oestrogen- from overproduction, poor detoxification due to sluggish liver and gut health, as well as the endocrine disrupting substances which mimic oestrogen actions in your body. It's no wonder as you're likley bombarded with these synthetic oestrogens on a daily basis through your food and environment. Yikes!
The heightened oestrogen activity leads to frustrating symptoms and can fuel debilitating conditions like endometriosis.
So if you're intrigued to learn more about these symptoms, causes and most importantly, what you can do about it... tune into my chat with Dr Andrea Huddleston in episode 71 of the Glowing Mumma Thriving Bubba podcast.
