You are The Wise Woman
A wise woman is calm, introspective, and worldly. Who wouldn’t want to feel like they have the inner peace and knowledge to move through life confidently? If you’re suffering from estrogen deficiency, however, you are probably wondering if you will ever feel like the wise woman you’ve come to be and be able to reclaim the lively woman you once were.
Why Estrogen Rules Your World
Estrogen is one of the most essential hormones produced by the human body. Even though both men and women produce estrogen, it is found in greater abundance in the female body. In earlier life, it is what shaped (no pun intended) your body’s ability to develop breasts and gain a more feminine figure. As you matured it has also controlled the growth of the endometrium (the lining of the uterus) and has, in tandem with progesterone, regulated your menstrual cycle. If you’ve had children, it’s also determined the breast changes that occurred during and after your pregnancy. It is also essential for maintaining bone density. In an ideal world, it works together with progesterone and other hormones to keep a perfect balance. Sometimes, however, that is harder said than done.
Alternative Treatments for Estrogen Deficiency
Estrogen deficiency treatment can be achieved through both holistic and conventional means. Many women worry about the increased breast cancer risk so choose to avoid taking artificial hormone replacement therapy (HRT). If you want to use this route, it’s important to seek the help of an experienced holistic gynecologist. Holistic treatments can include the use of natural estrogen creams, dietary adjustments, a gentler exercise regimen and addressing hormonal imbalances all around. Acupuncture has also been found to be helpful.
