In Episode 94 of the Real World Wellness podcast, Christine explains what estrogen dominance is and how it shows up. She also mentions similarities with other conditions including hypothyroidism, high insulin (metabolic syndrome) and stress imbalances. Treating estrogen dominance with more estrogen or antidepressants often causes more harm than good. Christine talks about natural treatments including a hormone-balancing diet, exercise, liver detoxification, and stress reduction.
