You might have heard us talk before about the underlying causes of hormonal problems and how it’s so crucial to address your symptoms from the root of the issue, rather than putting a band-aid solution on top of them.
When you mask your symptoms with a band-aid to create a temporary quick fix, you’re just suppressing the issues, which are bound to pop up with a vengeance at a later date.
In today’s blog post, we discuss the most powerful underlying cause, estrogen overload, and how you can properly detox the excess estrogen from your system to create lasting health.
Estrogen can be a wonderful hormone, but in excess it causes everything from PMS and fibroid growth, to infertility and low libido.
When you want to clear out excess estrogen, a detox sounds like a good idea – right?
Yes, but not all detoxes (also known as cleanses) are created equal. Most detox programs actually strip the body of the micronutrients needed to break down and eliminate estrogen. So while just drinking juice for 10 days might sound like a good idea theoretically, it can actually be quite harmful for the female system – especially if you’re already prone to hormonal sensitivities.
The real goal in doing a detox or cleanse should be to support the liver in its ability to breakdown estrogen, as well as other hormones and toxins. It should move the hormones and toxins through the bloodstream and into the digestive tract in an efficient way so that the body can clear them quickly.
In order to do this properly, certain micronutrients must be present for the liver. These include vitamin C, the B vitamins, and selenium.
