Do you have estrogen dominance? I have that too. My ZRT test results said so. Read the second sheet of your ZRT results...that's where it says it.
Estrogen dominance effects T4 to T3 conversion, adrenals ...and it also can cause candida. Estrogen encourages the bad bacteria in the intestines to grow out of control. Estrogen dominance causes weight gain, water retention, enlarged breast....cancer, and more.
I've been putting it off, but I'm going to take calcium deglucarate. It's detoxifies the bad or artificial estrogen out that we get from plastics(plastics mimics estrogen) and other things. Almost everything that we use is plastis these days. Tea tree oil also mimics estrogen.
You can research calcuim deglucarate and estrogen dominance. Estrogen dominance has the same symptoms as adrenal fatigue and hypothyroidism, because it effects the adrenal and the thyroid and cause one to have adrenal fatigue and hypothryoidism.
I now believe that my overall problem is estrogen dominance for the simple fact that I'm taking hormones for the thyroid and adrenals and it just seems that I'm missing something. I'm following my gut.
I've been putting it off, because I thought that detoxing alone without calcium deglucarate would get the estrogen out...and then I thought that using wild yam to relieve high estrogen symptoms and detoxing would be enough too. Everything has been working...but not quick enough.
So, now I will tackle estrogen alone. One of my books recommended it for estrogen dominance, but I choose to do it a different way.
I feel that this is it. Well...I'm on to the next step...still moving in the right direction.
Calcuim deglucarate also reduces testosterone.
I have adrenal fatique(or one of the many names that is called), abnormal hormone levels and hypothyroidism(tissue resistance to thyroid hormones).
Meds: Armour Thyroid, Wild Yam Progesterone Cream, and lots of supplements in addition to my multi-vitamins.
