Treating Hormonal Imbalance With Anti-Estrogenic Diet

Hormonal imbalance is one of the leading causes of infertility and several health problems including obesity and fatigue. It is believed that increase in the estrogen level in the body is responsible for this condition. Given the wide array of disadvantages of high estrogen level, the anti-estrogenic diet was developed by nutrition and fitness expert Ori Hofmekler.

Who needs the anti-estrogenic diet?
Anti-estrogenic diet is suitable for both men and women. This diet could help obese individuals to lose weight. Stubborn abdominal fat that refuses to go away could be treated with the anti-estrogenic diet plan. It could help to reduce fatigue and weakness. Anti-estrogenic diet could improve your ability to fight stress. Premenstrual syndrome, fibroids, fibrocystic disease and endometriosis in women might be treated with the diet that aims to normalize the estrogen level in the body. Anti-estrogenic diet could perhaps improve sex drive in both men and women. Menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, mood changes, weight gain and bloating could be dealt with this diet. In men, anti-estrogenic diet could perhaps prevent prostate enlargement and reduce the discomfort caused by enlarged prostate.



Hormonal imbalance in men that causes loss of libido and gynecomastia might be treated with the anti-estrogenic diet plan.

Anti-estrogenic diet plan
Excess estrogen enters our body through various sources. Estrogenic chemicals enter fruits and vegetables through chemical pesticides used in farming. Artificial sweeteners, soy products, meat and beer are potential sources of estrogen-like substances. Besides food sources, estrogenic substances are also found in cosmetics. Traces of such substances are found in air and fumes emitted by certain home cleaners. The anti-estrogenic diet aims to eliminate the excess estrogen from the body. The first step of the diet is liver detoxification. To eliminate the toxins in the body, you should increase intake of fresh vegetables and fruits. Cruciferous vegetables such as cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli and Brussels sprouts are particularly recommended for the anti-estrogenic diet plan. These vegetables are noted for their detoxification properties. Organic eggs, whole grains, beans, low-fat yogurt, aged cheese and fish are also part of the anti-estrogenic meal. The detoxification phase is followed by the estrogen-balancing phase. In this part of the diet olives, nuts and seeds are included in the diet. The anti-estrogenic diet plan allows dieters to include bread, pasta and meat in the dinner menu.

    Great article! I had no idea that estrogenic materials were found in such a variety of sources. This is good to know because I recently started taking biodientical hormones after finding out that I was suferring from adrenal fatigue. Apparently, adrenal fatigue is caused by a hormonal imbalance. I recently lost my father in early 2009 and following his death I started waking up in the middle of the night, sweating bullets. I knew that I was too young for menopause, so I decided to see an endocronologist. She told me that it was probably my thryoid and to make a long story short, after weeks searching on the internet for a local doctor who could help, I stumbled upon a physician who specialized in bioidentical hormones and after some hormone tests, we figured out that it was adrenal fatigue. Dr. Thackrey (my doctor) told me that the stress I was under caused an increased production of cortisol which he calls the “stress hormone.” He told me that the cortisol was the reason I was tired all of the time. Let me know if you post any more articles on hormonal imbalance -- after starting bioidenticals, I’m really starting realize how important balance really is.
