Perimenopause Symptoms & Environmental Estrogens | You Need to Know

You may know that perimenopause symptoms happen because of shifting hormones. But do you know where all of your hormones are coming from?

 

It might surprise you to learn that the hormones behind your perimenopause symptoms are not just coming from within your body. Environmental estrogens can have a significant impact on your health.

 

Environmental estrogens, also called endocrine disruptors, are a class of chemicals that mimic the actions of the hormone estrogen in your body. These chemicals are shockingly common in household products. In fact, women especially may be exposed to even higher levels through the use of cosmetics. Everything from moisturizers to nail polish may contain environmental estrogens.

 

Many common perimenopause symptoms like bloating, breast tenderness, headaches, and mood swings, among others, are associated with excessive estrogen. Dr. Christiane Northrup agrees that environmental estrogens play a contributing role in estrogen dominance linked perimenopause symptoms.

 

Dr. Marina Rose has helped women with perimenopause symptoms and other challenging, chronic health conditions in and around the city of Mountain View, CA.

 

There are natural steps that you can take at home to help your body balance hormones. Avoiding products that contain environmental estrogens is an important step. Eating a diet high in fiber, especially from vegetables, is important for helping your body to eliminate excesses of estrogen as well.
