Breast Cancer is one of the most common causes of death by cancer. It can develop in a person due to lifestyle factors, in addition to genetics. Globally, it is the leading type of cancer in women, with 25% of all cases diagnosed. Early identification of symptoms is crucial for survival. However, more critical than to spot the first signs of the diseases is to prevent it from happening in the first place.
Solid medical science and clinical studies have established that an underlying and untreated condition of “estrogen dominance” significantly increases your breast cancer risk: women who develop breast cancer have higher estrogen levels than women without breast cancer.
A urine test which analysis your hormones metabolites is the best way to understand how your body is producing and utilizing your hormones. But the test can be expensive. A simple and useful place to start is to observe and identify oestrogen dominance symptoms.
Below are some common estrogen dominance symptoms:
Weight gain, Fatigue, Insomnia, PMS, Migraines / Headaches, Bloating, Constipation, Mood swings, Infertility / Miscarriage, Fibroids, Heavy menstrual bleeding, Irregular menstruation, Breast tenderness, Edema / Water retention / Puffiness, Hot flushes/flashes, Depression, Hair Loss, Varicose veins, Skin problems, Acne, Goitre / Enlarged thyroid gland, Joint pains/stiffness, Lack of flexibility, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Muscle cramps, Recurring urinary tract infections, Candida / fungal infection, Histamine intolerance, Gall bladder disease, Gynecomastia, Hypoglycemia, Excessive clotting, Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, Arthritis, Autoimmune disease, Breast Cancer.
If you suffer or have suffered, from any of the above symptoms, then you’re likely more estrogen dominant than you may think.
