What is Estrogen Dominance?

Estrogen dominance occurs when there is an imbalance of the sex hormones. It can be caused by too much estrogen, not enough progesterone, or both. In fact, even if a person has low estrogen levels, she may have symptoms of estrogen dominance because she has little or no progesterone. Other factors that can contribute to estrogen dominance include:

  • Stress
  • Obesity
  • Poor liver function
  • Birth Control Pills
  • Hormone Replacement Therapy
  • Environmental and plant estrogens
  • Peri-menopause and glandular dysfunction

Dr. John Lee What Your Doctor May NOT Tell You About Premenopause.

lipoImbalanced estrogen can lead to stubborn weight gain. When a person is overweight, excess estrogen is produced by an enzymatic process, which can lead to excess weight, particularly around the abdomen, thighs, and back of the arms. Then, as biological fate would have it, excess estrogen prompts the formation of more fat cells, and the cycle continues. This can be particularly troublesome for men and women as they age because hormone production shifts from the ovaries and testes (gonads) to other parts of the body, including the adrenal glands and fat tissue.

Because the body is trying to find ways to maintain adequate hormone production as aging occurs, one will often hold on to body fat to synthesize hormone production. So, if a person is overweight, then likely they have excess estrogen in their tissues, which as we now know, promotes the creation and storage of more fat.

Pre-Menopausal Women – 30s-50s

I have no energy. These kids are driving me crazy! I need something to help me sleep. Go away…I have no sex drive. Where did I put those keys? Why can't I lose this weight??

These are common complaints among women of this age group. Many times, we will just keep on keeping on. We push ourselves to the limits and try to be everything to everyone, but in reality, we are falling apart. Seldom will we voice complaints to our healthcare provider for fear of being prescribed antidepressants and or sleeping pills, or worse; being told this is just part of life.

During these years of a woman's life, many physical and chemical changes occur in her body. She will lose approximately 25% of her estrogen and 75% of her progesterone and the majority of her testosterone. She may deplete her store of testosterone and develop estrogen dominance. She oftentimes will have unexplained weight gain, irritability, decreased sex drive, sleeplessness, depression, anxiety, mental fog, and lack of energy. Did you ever consider that these issues may, in fact, be a result of an underlying hormonal imbalance?

Until a woman becomes "menopausal", many clinicians will not consider hormonal imbalance to be an underlying cause of problems.

Testosterone tends to be the first hormone to diminish, and can be deficient as early as 15 years prior to the occurrence of menopause. Most women aren't even aware their bodies produce testosterone, nor are they aware of the importance of this hormone.

Hormones play a role in essentially every process in our body. For optimal health, proper hormone balance is crucial. When your hormones are in balance, you feel good, look good, and have abundant sustainable energy. When your hormones are out of balance, you may experience a wide range of symptoms that can affect mood and energy, and may also lead to more serious conditions like the development of uterine fibroid tumors, fibrocystic breasts, hormone positive cancers, thyroid dysfunction or Type II diabetes, among others.

Post Menopausal Women

Women have struggled for many years to make an informed decision about their hormonal health, especially since the confusion created from the Women's Health Initiative (WHI) study that was halted in 2002 because of the health risks. There has been much controversy on the subject of Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT) over the past 15 years since negative attitudes have dominated the media.

Many women are frustrated and want to treat their menopausal symptoms, but have concerns about the risks and side effects of synthetic oral or transdermal medications

What is Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy?

Bio-Identical Hormone Replacement Therapy (BHRT) is a prescription alternative to conventional hormone replacement therapy (conjugated estrogens, medroxyprogesterone, etc.) Bio-identical medications are plant-derived, and chemically changed in a laboratory until they are identical to what your body would naturally produce. BHRT is customizable; in other words, it can be adjusted to fit your needs, unlike conventional HRT, which has a few standard dosage strengths
Patients have found that bio identical hormone therapy with hormone pellets is extremely effective.  These hormone implants, placed under the skin, consistently release small, physiologic doses of hormones, providing optimal therapy.

Unlike typical oral and transdermal forms of hormone therapy--which produce "roller coaster" hormone levels, resulting in mood and energy fluctuations for the patient--BioTE Medical Hormone Pellet Therapy is the only method of hormone therapy that provides sustained hormone levels throughout the day, for up to 4 to 6 months, without the drawbacks of synthetic.

What are the goals of BHRT?

  • Alleviate symptoms caused by the natural decrease in hormone production in the body
  • Reestablish the individual's hormonal balance
  • Provide protective benefits that were originally provided by the body's naturally occurring hormones
  • What are the benefits of BHRT?

BHRT offers a number of health-related benefits:

  • Helps in the prevention of osteoporosis and restoration of bone strength
  • Protection against heart disease
  • Reduced hot flashes and reduced vaginal dryness
  • Muscle mass and strength are better maintained
  • Improvement in cholesterol levels
  • Risk of depression reduced
  • Improved libido
  • Prevention of senility and Alzheimer's Disease
  • Improved sleep
  • Mood, concentration, and memory improves
  • Minimal side effects

Benefits of Bio-Identical Pellet Hormone Therapy for Women:

In studies, when compared to conventional hormone replacement therapy, pellets have been shown to be extremely effective for relief of menopausal symptoms, maintenance of bone density, restoration of sleep patterns, and improvement in sex drive, libido, sexual response and performance, relief of depression, anxiety, irritability, mood swings, and many others.  Pellet implants have been used to treat migraine and menstrual headaches.  It also helps with vaginal dryness, incontinence, urinary urgency, and frequency. Bio-identical hormone pellets have been shown to decrease body fat, and a greater capacity for losing weight.   Moreover, hundreds of studies show natural testosterone to be HIGHLY PREVENTATIVE against breast cancer, osteoporosis, and Alzheimer's dementia to name a few.
