When I look at my beautiful daughter I hate that I passed on to her my hormonal imbalances!
But what she has that I didn’t have at her age is so much more understanding of it…and how to overcome and transform her health!
One way our hormones can be imbalanced is being estrogen dominant.
Estrogen dominance can be very common, and despite knowing the signs and symptoms of this condition, you should also know what to do if you are suffering from it.
💧The 10 most common symptoms of estrogen dominance:
Abnormal menstrual periods
Bad PMS (breast tenderness/swelling, mood swings, and headaches)
Weight gain (especially hips and abs)
Here are the steps you should follow in order to restore the healthy hormonal balance in the body:
💜Step 1: Eliminate Xenoestrogens
We are constantly being exposed to various chemicals, and one of them is “xenoestrogen,” which can mimic estrogen in the body.
Therefore, in order to avoid these adverse effects, you should avoid the use of the following top offenders:
Plastic water bottles
Cosmetics, makeup, and toiletries
Non-organic dairy, produce
Soy protein isolate
Birth control pill
💜Step 2: Elimination (ie: poo 💩)
This step is essential as it will ensure the removal of estrogen, and prevent its re-entrance into the bloodstream in the case of chronic constipation.
Make sure you are having daily bowel movements, and in case you are not:
Drink 2-3L of water daily
Increase the intake of fiber-rich foods
Increase the intake of vegetables with every meal.

Moreover, in order to help the removal of waste and toxins from the body, you should also:
Exercise or go to a sauna to stimulate sweating
Breathe deeply to support the lungs
Massage your body to support the lymph
Use a dry skin brush to eliminate dead skin cell.
Use your oils with dry brushing!

💜Step 3: Improve Liver Health and Estrogen Detoxification
Estrogen is effectively removed by a well-functioning liver. In the first stage, the liver turns harmful estrogen intro milder, weaker forms of estrogen, and in the second stage, it converts it into a water-soluble form, so you can eliminate it through the stool or urine.
Yet, the liver won’t be able to fulfill its function if the body lacks important nutrients, or it is overburdened with other chemicals, accumulated due to the use of processed foods, drugs, and alcohol.
To support the function of the liver, you should:
Drink lots of filtrated water
Do not drink alcohol
Each a real, whole-foods based diet
Eat foods that support liver health, such as kale, dandelion greens, beets, garlic, eggs, dark leafy greens, artichoke, onions, leeks, shallots, broccoli, cabbage, Brussels sprouts, etc.)
Taking supplements that are rich in detoxifying vitamins and minerals is super helpful.
In order to kick start your metabolism and improve your overall healthy by detoxifying and energizing the body try:
💧cleanse and restore kit/system
Finally center yourself each day!!!
Find 5-10 minutes at least once if not twice a day to truly reflect on your whole health!
Sometimes when our estrogen is out of whack and we’ve done all the physical and nutritional needs then that means we have some mental, emotional, spiritual stuff we need to address.
But we aren’t going to know unless we stop to center ourselves and find some alignment within ourselves!
How are your hormones?!
