Hormones & the Dangers of Estrogen Dominance

Women are complex because of the role hormones play in regulating all the major and minor bodily functions in a woman’s body. Therefore, even a slight alteration and disturbance may lead to hormonal imbalance which may in turn lead to other serious complications. These imbalances can cause mood instabilities, hyper emotional sensitivity, weight gain, fatigue, constipation, low libido, and the list goes on. The biggest fear of many women is the overabundance of estrogen in the system, which leads to cancer.

All hormones are important regulators as far as womens health is concerned. Many problems that women face is generally associated with hormones in one way or the other, therefore it is extremely important to know the causes as well as the effects of hormonal imbalance. Saliva testing for hormones is necessary to assess the results. Saliva testing will show problems even before the woman begins to experience the negative effects of the imbalance.

Estrogen dominance is a common problem of imbalance and a danger. It is a danger because it is estrogen dominance that leads to cancer.  All women face this problem from teenage girls to mature women. There are many causes of hormonal imbalance. The main causes are endocrine disruptors. Endocrine disruptors show up as heavy metals in the body. They include mercury (found in dental work), lead (mainly stored in the bones), platinum (found in breast implants) arsenic (well established carcinogen), and cadmium (mimics estrogens in breast cancer cell lines). Bisphenol A or (BPA) is to be avoided. It is found in plastics and canned foods. It is also a major endocrine disruptor and known carcinogen.
