Ep #19: Find Yourself in Estrogen Dominance? Here’s What to Do About It

Finding the most impactful ways to support your weight loss can feel like an endless battle, especially as you age. For women over 35, the journey isn’t just about shedding pounds. It also includes navigating the complex world of hormonal changes, and a shift in your body’s estrogen levels, particularly in your mid-30s to 40s, plays a crucial role in how you gain and lose weight.

Perimenopause and estrogen dominance are topics I receive many questions on because there’s so much misinformation out there. The kicker here is that even as your estrogen levels decline, you can still find yourself in a state of estrogen dominance. The root issue often lies in your body’s inability to properly eliminate excess estrogen, leading to what I like to call the perimenopocalypse and estrogen tsunami.

Join me on the podcast this week to learn what it means to be estrogen dominant and the top imbalances that cause it. I’m showing you how estrogen dominance affects your physical and mental well-being, some of the most common symptoms you might experience, and my top three strategies for tackling the estrogen tsunami.
