Do you suffer from severe premenopausal, perimenopausal or menopausal symptoms?
Does it feel like you’re riding a roller coaster of hormones that’s beyond your control?
You’re not alone.
Now more than ever, women suffer from extreme hormonal imbalance during their premenopausal, perimenopausal and menopausal years.
Why is that?
Because of a little known condition called “estrogen dominance”.
If you don’t know what estrogen dominance is and why it’s having such a disastrous effect on your hormones, you’re not alone. Even some medical professionals are unaware of the condition and how to treat their patients suffering from severe perimenopause symptoms.
Coined by the late, great Dr. John R. Lee, author of What Your Doctor May Not Tell you About Menopauseand What Your Doctor May Not Tell you About Premenopause, “estrogen dominance” refers to the balance of estrogen vs. progesterone in the body.
And while many women think their estrogen levels are declining as they approach menopause, the opposite is often true. Many actually suffer from an abundance of estrogen. Or, they may indeed suffer from declining estrogen levels but their progesterone levels are even lower.
And that imbalance between their estrogen and progesterone levels is making them feel very, very sick.
