By estrogen I mean not only what the female (and male) body produces, which includes estriol, estradiol and estrone, but also all estrogenic foods, such as soy products (all of them except the occasional use of tamari or soybean oil as a condiment); unsaturated fatty acids (all seed, nut, bean, fish and plant oils, such as soybean, safflower, sesame, corn, canola, flaxseed, fish, Evening Primrose and borage oils); herbs (black cohosh, sage, licorice, pennyroyal); pesticides (all of them are estrogen mimics) and other environmental poisons such as fluoride and the mercury in your silver amalgam fillings. Estrogen is NOT the female hormone as is commonly believed. Progesterone is THE female hormone and unless you have ten times more progesterone than estrogen, you are in trouble. It doesn’t matter whether you have a low or a normal or a high estrogen level. What matters is how much of the protective progesterone you have to oppose this estrogen.
