Ever felt puzzled by your body? Wondering why your periods are heavy, your mood swings wildly, or why the scale creeps up despite your efforts? You might be dealing with estrogen dominance – a common yet often overlooked problem in women’s health. Let’s unravel this mystery.

Meet Dr. Tabatha, the “Gutsy Gynecologist”

I’m Dr. Tabatha, an experienced OB-GYN with a passion for whole-body health. They call me the “gutsy gynecologist” because I’ve discovered a deep link between gut health and hormones. Moreover, your gut health impacts your gyn health!

Understanding Estrogen Dominance

Estrogen dominance happens when estrogen levels in your body are higher than progesterone levels. But here’s the catch – your gut bacteria play a big role in this hormonal story. Inside your gut, there are billions of bacteria, and they need to work together well for your hormones to stay balanced.

Who’s The Trouble Maker?

When your body uses estrogen, it goes to your liver for processing. However, if something disrupts this process, estrogen can get reabsorbed into your blood, making the imbalance worse. The troublemaker here? An enzyme called beta-glucuronidase, made by your gut bacteria, which messes with estrogen and keeps the dominance going.

Spotting the Signs

But how do you know if you have estrogen dominance? It’s more than just irregular periods; it’s headaches, weight gain, mood swings, and even constipation. Indeed, your gut health can affect your hormones in surprising ways.

Solutions That Work

But don’t worry – there are ways to fix it. Making changes to your diet, finding ways to manage stress, and taking specific supplements can help a lot. For example, Estro Tame is a powerful mix that helps balance estrogen and restore harmony.

Moreover, don’t forget about magnesium – it’s a hero for your gut and hormones. Not having enough can make constipation worse, feeding into the cycle of estrogen dominance.
