Estrogen dominance has become a hot topic, and while most people are learning to read the signs and symptoms of this condition, many are left to wonder what to actually do if they suspect they are suffering from this! The simple protocol below will help you bring your hormones back into balance, and can also be used by both men and women to prevent it in the first place.

Before we get to that, here’s a quick recap:

Step 1: Remove Xenoestrogens

Unfortunately, as a side-effect of greater industrialization and new innovations in technology, we’ve seen harmful chemical compounds enter into our day-to-day routine. One such chemical compound is called a “xenoestrogen,” which can mimic estrogen in the body. We’re being bombarded on a daily basis, so it’s no wonder so many people are suffering from estrogen dominance!

Here are some of the top offenders to swap out of your daily routine:

  • Plastic water bottles

  • Plastic Tupperware

  • Cosmetics, makeup and toiletries (opt for natural lines)

  • Non-organic dairy, produce

  • Tap water

  • BPA cans

  • Dryer sheets

  • Birth control pill

  • Soy protein isolate
