Q: If I am a strict vegetarian almost vegan then what can cause high production of eostrogen and how do I balance this through foods - ie vegetarian food?


A: Foods that have an eostrogenic effect are as follows:

As far as balancing your hormones with foods, requires some more information from you. I would suggest to have your personal diet analysed by a nutritionist/naturopath in your area. If you are almost vegan now, and plan on cutting out eostrogenic foods, your diet will be too restricted and you risk malnutrition. Traditionally speaking, everything in moderation is actually a wise choice.

Herbal medicine is of greatest value when hormones are out of balance. Wild Yam and Chaste Tree are the herbs which would alter a high eostrogen level in the body as they have an affect on progesterone levels. Wild Yam cream is easy to apply to the inner thighs as part of the daily routine.
