Estrogen Dominance can cause symptoms including breast or ovarian fibroids, varicose veins, heavy menstrual bleeding, body fat and cellulite, fluid retention, PMS, and anxiety. It can also help trigger or worsen conditions such as endometriosis. Estrogen Dominance can be caused by many lifestyle factors including stress, poor diet, drugs, inadequate liver function and exposure to an estrogenic cocktail of chemicals from skincare products, cleaners, packaging, and food.
These can trigger:
Excess levels of the strong estrogens: Estrone (E1) and estradiol (E2), as compared to estriol (E3), which is the “protective estrogen.”
Low progesterone: The ratio of progesterone to E2 is too low because estrogen becomes too dominant and also because many women don’t produce enough progesterone due to issues such as stress.
Estrogen can be made in the ovaries, testes, liver, adrenals, fat cells and the brain. Too much aromatase (enzyme that converts androstenedione & testosterone into estrogen) can lead to too much estrogen in men and women. The ratio of these hormones and how they fluctuate through the phases of a woman’s cycle are of utmost importance. These herbs are known to decrease estrogen in different ways. It is beneficial to also drink Golden Milk every evening while taking this formula. You can read how to make this yourself on this site on the page called "Recipes".
Passionflower is high in chrysin, a naturally occurring flavonoid that can help lower estradiol. It is a great plant ally for perimenopausal sleep disturbance because it helps lower estradiol and has calming, mild sedative qualities.
When excess estrogen is constantly circulating in your body, the liver can become overloaded, rendering it unable to filter out harmful estrogen metabolites (which are easily excreted when the liver is functioning optimally). This can then lead to even circulating levels of estrogen. The following herbs cleanse the liver and facilitate removal of estrogen by relieving congestion.
This bitter plant stimulates bile production which facilities your liver’s detoxification process, helping it to break down estrogen and progesterone byproducts and remove them from the body normally through excretion.
Chanca Piedra translated to English is stone breaker. It is well known to dissolve stones and break apart calcifications in the liver, gallbladder and kidney.
Kutki is considered Ayurveda’s premier liver tonic, but its benefits reach far beyond the liver.
Traditionally, Ayurveda and Chinese Medicine used it to support healthy liver, digestive, elimination, skin, immunity and respiratory function. By boosting the liver’s natural antioxidant, glutathione, and multiple liver enzymes, it supports detoxification and immunity through both the liver and the lymphatic system.
Here is the short list of kutki benefits:
- Helps shield the liver from toxins, stress and the environment
- Decongests bile and liver ducts, supporting healthy bile flow
- Encourages liver, gallbladder and intestinal detox
- Supports healthy external skin
- Maintains the integrity of the intestinal and respiratory inner skin
- Maintains healthy lymph and immune function
