Tips For Lowering Estrogen

What is estrogen and what role does it play in the body? Why should you be concerned about it getting too low?

Estrogen causes estrogen-sensitive tissue to grow. The most estrogen sensitive tissues are uterine and breast tissue. Estrogen can cause normal and abnormal tissue to grow. Estrogen can be too low and cause women to not have periods. In menopause, estrogen can be low if you don’t have enough fat tissue to make enough estrogen to compensate the ovary not making estrogen.

Habits that can help lower your estrogen include:

  • Eat hormone-free meats. Estrogen in cows and chickens increase weight of the animals.
  • Avoid cow milk. Cow’s milk contains hormones that can affect the body’s delicate hormonal balance.
  • Lower stress. Stress decreases the binding protein that neutralizes estrogen.
  • Maintain a good weight. Fat tissue produces a type of estrogen.
  • Eat cruciferous vegetables. Broccoli, Brussels sprouts cauliflower, etc. This helps metabolize excess estrogen.
  • Eat fiber. This binds estrogen and eliminates it in the bowel. Fiber also increases estrogen binding protein.
  • Exercise. Exercise helps maintain weight and decreases stress.

Habits that can help regulate or boost estrogen:

The key is to regulate estrogen with the hormone progesterone. The only way to safely boost estrogen is with a prescription. Estrogen is everywhere. It is much more important to not be over-exposed to estrogen and to make sure there is enough progesterone around to balance the estrogen.
