Having too much of anything is rarely a good thing – this is especially true for estrogen. Excess estrogen can cause a variety of issues, from PCOS to anxiety.
Since estrogen is metabolized by the liver, adding liver supportive foods to your diet can support estrogen metabolism. Foods that are high in sulforaphane (like broccoli, kale, Brussels sprouts, etc.) and cruciferous vegetables are key. Omega-3’s are also important (nuts, seeds and wild fish).
You also have to consider factors that are contributing to the issue, like foods that contain pesticides or hormones. Buy organic whenever possible and make sure your meat/dairy is hormone-free.
Hormone balancing is a delicate thing, and it’s always best to work with a doctor who can help you navigate re-balancing. But, changing up your diet to add more veggies is always a good idea.
