You can also be estrogen dominant and not be menopausal. Look up on the web Dr. John Lee and Estrogen Dominance and see the list he shows about the side effects of estrogen dominance. Also research xenoestrogens which can add to estrogen problems. Soy is a big culprit in estrogen problems as well. It's a phytoestrogen and messes with your estrogen receptors. It's being put in a lot of our foods these days. I hate it. Have you ever tried drinking coconut water? It's a good source of electrolytes and can keep you hydrated. Do you eat a good diet? I see you're from Austrailia. Do you know who the guy is that is from there that has done a juicing detox to get rid of his health problems? A good detox could probably do you wonders. Do you drink a lot of caffeine? When's the last time you had your blood sugars checked?
Thank you for your reply.
I have had my blood sugar and blood pressure checked and the doctor has told me all is ok. Also, my hormone tests are supposedly normal. I'm not overweight as such, but I could lose alittle bit of weight. I don't drink any caffeine products only water and orange juice and exercise most days, so It is frustrating trying to work out why I feel this way. Just reading alot of the posts, I have noticed many women with ok medical results feeling the same as I do, so I put it down to a slow (and frustrating) progression towards menopause. Have you experienced any menopausal symptoms?
