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.

I am in the Pleasure Tribe, I am absolutely in love with your work. I gifted my daughter your amazing book a month ago and she is doing so much better with syncing her cycles. Thank you so much Alisa for all you do.
Warmth and best wishes,

As a health coach who works primarily with overworked underloved women I’m always looking for ways to safely detox their systems without stressing the system. Liquid diets and juice fasts are just too much when they already aren’t getting nourishment. I’m a big fan of your work and will continue to be! Hope to hear a new trick for my tribe!
Thank you Stasha!
We look forward to supporting you and your tribe as well!
All the best,

I’m traveling around Europe and have been following your fantastic protocol as closely as possible -except- the last week in Paris and Tuscany when my willpower crumbled and I lived solely off chocolate croissants and pizza (yum!). I am firmly back on the wagon now and learning about cleansing will be the best gift I can give my body (I have definitely noticed a downturn in mood and more aches/pains – I’m so keen to feel better and clean again)!
Love your work.
Thank you for your support Frances and for writing in! Glad to hear your committed to your health and we look forward to supporting you in that journey. Let us know if you’d like to set up a one-on-one consult with one of our counselors. You can email [email protected]

Hi, i have recently bought the book Woman Code, and I am half way into it. I have come to realise that amongst other things I probably have an overload of estrogen, so this article really appeals to me. However, I think the webinar was some time ago and I am not able to access it. Is there any other links for me to be able to watch it and get the info I need to start in the path of detoxifying my liver properly?
Thank you very much!
I note there is a huge amount of great info for women who are of an age where they are mensturating but there does not appear to be much specifically for menopausal symptoms. I am wondering what happens to the 4 cycles spoken about? There is no ovulating etc.
I recently had breast cancer and my doctor wants to put me in Estrogen meds for 5-10 years. However, I believe this can be done naturally without meds so I’d like to balance mine. I don’t believe high estrogen is the cause of cancer either.
Caddy! Me too, would love to talk to a like minded survivor. Email me! [email protected]
