Ignoring these symptoms increases the chances of Perimenopause Cancer Risk
We generally have perception of ‘tough it out’. It becomes a badge of honor to suffer through and ignore our symptoms. When you’re between the age of 35 to 55 and ignoring the symptoms such as brain fog, Fibroids, ovarian cysts, infertility, irritability, mood swings, pain swollen, fatigue, hair loss, depression, insomnia and man y more. Then latterly chances of perimenopause cancer and estrogen dominance risk increases.
Estrogen Dominance is a condition where the body has an overabundance of estrogen. If not monitored then it could lead to hypothyroidism, chronic fatigue, or ovarian and breast cancer.
Now days, so many women are estrogen dominant as they are exposed to synthetic hormones, or xenohormones in the environment. Not only in the food we eat is the main source of hormones but personal care products and even some furniture’s also have hormone-disrupting chemicals. If you want to reduce the estrogen dominant symptoms then you need to avoid exposure to toxins.
“Estrogen dominance” refers to the balance between estrogen and progesterone. Stress and toxin exposure can raise estrogen to unhealthy levels. When that happens your body reacts by suppressing progesterone, causing an imbalance, where estrogen levels also decline during the perimenopausal years and because the term refers to the ratio of progesterone to estrogen, you can simultaneously be estrogen deficient and estrogen dominant. In other words, you could have low levels of estrogen and even lower levels of progesterone.
