Estrogen deficiency: Most common in menopausal women, it especially affects those who are petite and/or slim. Diet changes, some supplements could prove beneficial.
Excess estrogen: In women, this is most often solved by withdrawing from the conventional synthetic hormones most often prescribed by doctors for menopausal women and reverting to a natural hormone regimen.
Estrogen dominance: Estrogen dominance is caused when the amount of progesterone in your body isn’t sufficient to balance the effects of estrogen. Interestingly, you can have low estrogen but if your progesterone is even lower, you can experience the symptoms of estrogen dominance. Many women between the ages of 40 and 50 suffer from estrogen dominance.
Excess androgens (male hormones): This is most often caused by too many simple carbohydrates and sugar in the diet and is often found in women who have polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
Cortisol deficiency: These symptoms are caused by tired adrenals, which is usually caused by chronic stress. If you’re trying to juggle a job and a family, chances are good you have tired adrenals.
Note: Saliva testing is a good next step. These tests can provide you with baseline measurements as well as a comprehensive analysis of your hormones, allowing you to pinpoint your imbalance more accurately.
