Gut health & your hormones


Let’s talk gut health & your hormones. Impaired estrogen metabolism (or detoxification) can cause hormonal imbalances in both men & women. If you are not properly metabolizing estrogens in your gut, this can impact libido, mood, fertility and overall quality of life. In women, excess estrogen can cause: - Heavy or irregular periods - Breast Pain - Fibroids - Irritability - Suppressed thyroid activity In men, excess estrogen can cause: - Enlarged Breasts (gynecomastia) - Erectile Dysfunction - Infertility (low sperm count) - Mood changes Remember💡 All estrogens including the “bad” xenoestrogens are eliminated (or detoxed) in a two-step process via your liver and bowels. This is why your digestion matters when it comes to healthy hormones, periods, fertility, pregnancy, mood and overall feelings of wellness. ✅ . Step 1 involves conjugating those estrogens and step 2 involves eliminating those estrogens through a healthy regular bowel movement. This is why ND’s love to talk about poop! 💩
