Estrogen Dominance and Peri-Menopause
A common view of perimenopause is a plummet in estrogen. This is usually a gross oversimplification of the process and in fact in most women, progesterone is the first hormone to drop. Since estrogen and progesterone need to act in perfect balance, the drop of progesterone can actually make the estrogen more dominant. This concept was originally brought to the table by the late Dr. John Lee.
When many women feel these peri-menopausal symptoms such as weight gain, hot flashes, sleeplessness and mood swings they turn to either conventional or natural estrogens to support their hormones. For some women this works beautifully, for others it complicates the problem and contributes to their growing estrogen load. This imbalanced estrogen to progesterone ratio can cause water retention, breast tenderness, low libido, irritability, sleeplessness, headaches and weight gain.
This condition is again complicated by the increase in environmental xeno-estrogens that we are exposed to from plastics, pesticides and water. We are seeing this estrogen dominance trend in our environment as well. Research conducted over the past few decades has shown the relationship between waters rich in xeno-estrogens from industry runoff, and aquatic life such as fish and frogs actually switching gender.
