My colleague Dame Dr Shirley Bond has given one of the best and simplest outlines of what this condition really is so I thought it would be helpful to share it with you.
Keeping hormones in balance is the best way to stay naturally healthy, but do you know the signs to look out for?
Endometriosis is generally agreed to be stimulated by oestrogen dominance and so progesterone can help rebalance that.
Many women suffer from endometriosis, from teens to perimenopause but don’t always recognise how bioidentical progesterone can help.
Ovarian cancer is mainly found in women over 50, so menopause is a key time to check your own risk factors.
At perimenopause increased bleeding can become more common as oestrogen dominance and hormone imbalance start being experienced. Knowing why it is happening, and what you can do about it, can make a lot of difference.
There are many hormone-related cancers and this is the fourth most common one in women in the UK.
As women are often more concerned about mens health than they are themselves, this is helpful information to pass on.
Are you putting on weight, or getting tender breasts? There are many signs of oestrogen dominance and hormone imbalance so check the list to see what may be affecting you.
Excess oestrogen and hormone imbalance are associated with endometriosis and endometrial cancer. Diet plays an important role in staying healthy and if you are oestrogen dominant, and love carbonated drinks, you may have increased your risk factor.
