Estrogen is the predominant sex hormone found in women that control the growth of breast, the menstrual cycle, pubic and underarm hair. In addition to this, estrogen also regulates cholesterol levels, protects bone health and even affects the brain.
Here are some symptoms to look for when considering your own estrogen levels:
Decreased sex drive
Irregular menstrual cycles
Cold hands and feet
Rosemary, especially used in the form of an essential oil, is a great tool in combating estrogen dominance. Also known as the “fertility oil”, rosemary oil can help soothe inflammation and blockages when rubbed over the hips. Rosemary can also be used to increase blood flow to the brain, help with thyroid function and strengthen your immune system.
Salmon and Other Fatty Fish
Foods rich in Omega-3 fatty acids, such as salmon and fatty fish, are essential for a healthy immune system. Eat 2-3 servings per week or take a high quality fish oil supplement.
Eating foods rich in fiber and probiotics can help support the removal of estrogen from the body. Include foods like sauerkraut, kimchi, and kombucha. You should also check out how eating one carrot per day can help.
