Know her Estrogen to understand right food and lifestyle of a Woman
Know Your Estrogen
Estrogen is a hormone responsible for feminine characteristics of a human body. Contradictory to what people believe, Estrogen is present in both men & women. Estrogen governs everything from Hair & Weight to Moods & Bones. In women, it is also responsible for Menstruation, Pregnancy & Menopause.
Pre Menstrual Syndrome (PMS) is a combination of physical & emotional upheaval experienced by a woman a week before periods. For some these symptoms may be so severe as to miss daily routine of work / school / play. The symptoms of PMS are dependent on the level of Estrogen. Estrogen naturally starts falling after ovulation but if it falls less than expected then it is called High Estrogen. On other hand, if it falls much more than expected then it is called Low Estrogen.
The symptoms that you experience will tell about your level of Estrogen. Knowing this is the first step to understand your food & lifestyle choices
HIGH ESTROGEN - Bloating, Cramps, Excessive Blood Flow, Weight Gain, Hair Loss
LOW ESTROGEN - Hot Flashes, Insomnia, Incomplete Blood Flow, Bone Loss
