Low Oestrogen is not always the problem
A lot of the focus when it comes to menopause and changing hormones is around the decline in oestrogen levels, but for many women this is not the real issue.  Many of the common symptoms that are associated with menopause are due to excess oestrogen levels in relation to progesterone.

In fact, even before women start their menopause transition high levels of oestrogen can be a major concern.  Many women experience what is known as PMS (pre-menstrual symptoms) just before their period these are due to what is known as Oestrogen Dominance or higher than expected oestrogen levels.

Each month both Oestrogen and Progesterone cycle up and down and ideally both hormones are kept in relative balance with each other.  As one hormone rise the other declines and vice versa as you move through your cycle.

Due to stress, diet and exposure to hormone disrupting toxins over 80% of women experience oestrogen dominance which results in symptoms such as:
  • Bloating
  • Weight gain
  • Mood swings
  • Heavy bleeding
  • Insomnia
  • Migraines
  • Breast tenderness

In this episode I talk about the causes of oestrogen dominance and some of the steps that you can take to re-balance your hormones as you move through your menopause transition, so that your symptoms reduce or completely disappear.
