Oestrogen Dominance

Oestrogen Dominance

OESTROGEN DOMINANCE with its wide range of symptoms, is a MODERN AGE CONDITION that is effecting women, men, children and even the unborn foetus in this world today. ONLY since the advent of man-made chemicals more than 50 years ago, have we been exposed to many hundreds of chemicals that mimic the female hormone OESTROGEN. These chemicals are DISRUPTING a delicate balance that should always exists between OESTROGEN and it’s antagonist, PROGESTERONE. If there is imbalance here we end up with a state of “unopposed oestrogen” or OESTEROGEN DOMINANCE. These chemicals are called xenooestrogens and occur now in our food, water, air, in personal care products and in pharmaceutical drugs, eg the PILL, Fertility treatments and HRT Symptoms of this OESTEROGEN DOMINANT state include amongst others,
  • Depression, anxiety and panic attacks
  • Infertility with endometriosis
  • Fibroids PCOD (polycystic ovarian disease) 
  • Low sperm counts in males
  • Miscarriages and abortions (especially luteal phase abortions)
  • Increased risk of all the cancers, especially breast, cervical and uterine cancers in females and in men testicular, prostate and breast cancers.
  • Breast tenderness and fibrocystic breasts.
  • PMS with all it’s associate bloating, headaches, mood swings, weight gain.
  • Poor brain function and memory, lack of concentration.
  • Migraine headaches.
  • Osteoporosis.
  • Thyroid problems.
  • Allergies.
  • Auto Immune disease.
  • Weight gain.
Where, before in nature, there was always balance between oestrogen and PROGESTERONE, this is no longer the case

In the group of oestrogens, one Oestradial, responsible for giving the female their secondary sexual characteristics, comes into play at puberty and stops its action at menopause. This fertile female oestrogen, switches on a gene in the body called the BCL2 gene. This gene causes cellular proliferation … the cells multiply, do not differentiate and do not die. Progesterone on the other hand switches off this gene in favour of the protective gene, the P53, which reverses those instructions, the cell then matures, differentiate and dies. If the cells do not get this message, then their proliferation can become a problem such as with CANCER CELL GROWTH, ENDOMETRIOSIS AND FIBROIDS.

Oestrogen dominance is easily rectified, but the only way is to restore this delicate balance.   By applying NATURAL PROGESTERONE daily can bring about this balance . The best way to get natural progesterone into the blood stream quickly is in cream form. This then restores the balance between oestrogen and progesterone immediately and in a short time the symptoms of oestrogen dominance disappear.
There are many creams on the market, but be aware of the pitfalls ….. use only a very natural vegetable-oil based cream with a high percentage of progesterone (4% is good). Avoid those creams with chemicals in their formulas including “mineral oils”, avoid chemical preservatives, and avoid creams packaged in soft plastic tubes; because all the above will have xeno-oestrogens.
Needless to say, Naturone complies with all the standards of an excellent natural progesterone cream.
