Did you know excess estrogen is as much a risk factor for obesity — for both men and women — as an unhealthy diet and a lack of exercise? Like the needle in a haystack, estrogen dominance can be the unexpected cause of a host of unwanted side effects. In today’s blog, we will discuss what causes estrogen dominance and how you can treat estrogen dominance in both men and women with our 2-Day Body Balancing Weekend Course.
What are the Causes of Estrogen Dominance?
Estrogen balance is necessary to carry out and control the process of fat loss. Estrogen dominance can cause weight gain, water retention, bloating, and plenty of other health and wellness concerns. Stress and age can cause hormonal imbalance. A decline in testosterone and progesterone levels can cause our bodies to produce too much estrogen resulting in estrogen dominance. We can also acquire it from our environment or diet.
What are the Symptoms of Estrogen Dominance?
The symptoms of estrogen dominance include PMS, too much body fat around the hips and difficulty losing weight. Additional symptoms include loss of libido, diminished attention span, cellulite, hot flashes, lethargy, insomnia, uterine fibroids, varicose veins, osteoporosis, ovarian and breast cysts, and gallstones. Estrogen dominance can also increase the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer and stroke.
How Can Estrogen Dominance be Treated?
Estrogen dominance and it’s unwanted side effects can be successfully treated with advanced body balancing techniques such as Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT), HCG Weight Loss, and nonsurgical body contouring.
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy
The ideal way to treat estrogen dominance is to balance the hormones with Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy. BHRT is a highly effective technique which involves treatment with oral supplements and/or the insertion of plant-derived, non-synthetic pellets into the skin near the thigh. Oral supplements and/or placement of time-release pellets consisting of approved human hormones in the fat under the skin will optimize your hormone levels.
HCG Weight Loss
HCG, also known as Human chorionic gonadotropin, promotes the metabolism of fat as an energy source for the body while preserving muscle mass. The safe and effective HCG weight loss program implements quality medical grade HCG injections to lose unwanted fat while maintaining a strict 500 calorie per day diet.
Organic meats, vegetables, and fish are encouraged. While dairy, carbs, alcohol, and sugar are discouraged for the duration of the diet. Because of HCG, dieters can maintain this low-calorie diet without excessive hunger while losing unwanted fat. When administered by an expert medical professional, patients typically lose one to two pounds per day for up to 6 weeks at a time.
NonSurgical Body Contouring
When nonsurgical body contouring modalities are used to supplement other treatments such as BHRT and HCG, you can help to optimize the results for your patients. Nonsurgical body contouring is safe and effective for all skin types and it can diminish cellulite caused by estrogen dominance. The fat cells that make up cellulite are enveloped by connective tissue known as septa. Cellulite is triggered by estrogen dominance when the fat cells are too tightly compressed as the body increases storage of fat cells and they squeeze through the septa. A superficial fat tissue layer is formed that creates cellulite. Estrogen further weakens the septa causing the lumpy appearance of cellulite.
Nonsurgical body contouring heats the superficial fat tissue layer that contributes to cellulite. The result is a boost in the metabolism of the superficial fatty layer and the size of fat cells shrink. Mechanical rollers and vacuum suction increase circulation to achieve a smoother, less dimpled surface appearance. Body contouring can also reduce inches as fibrous bands that cause dimples are smoothed.
