Estrogen Dominance

by Alfredo E.

Hi All, talking about estrogen dominance and its effects in the male body, I found this iluminating article on how we naively looking for beter health, replacing for example soy ("health food") or chicken for beef could end up doing a disservice to our hormone levels and overall wellbeing.

Written By Al Sears MD:

Can These “Health Foods” Shrink Your Manhood?

Eating one of those “healthy options” like a grilled chicken sandwich or a veggie burger could begin to turn you into a plump, moody, weepy female.

No joke.

The average chicken sandwich comes from chickens that are pumped full of the hormones that your body thinks are estrogen.

Is this “healthy” chicken sandwich a
threat to your manhood?

That veggie burger, too... soy products are highly estrogenic.

Estrogen is what makes a woman a woman... but too much can “feminize” a man, and start to turn him into a woman.
Commercial beef, poultry and soy products are a HUGE source of estrogen. Add cheese? That’s more estrogen. Add some bacon? Even more estrogen.

That lettuce, tomato that are supposed to be so “healthy”? Yep, you guessed it, more estrogen in the form of chemicals sprayed on your veggies while they’re still in the ground.
These “estrogen mimics” have a structure that makes them a dead ringer for the real thing... and your body can’t tell the difference. Ketchup has ingredients that have the same effect. Even the grain in your sandwich bun is tainted.

And the more estrogen that gets into your blood, the more your manhood shrinks. That means more belly fat, your energy tanks and your sex life goes the way of the woolly mammoth.
Is this a scientific fact? No, not yet, because the medical establishment has refused to invest the money to do the tests necessary to prove this. But do I believe it's true? Absolutely. And I'll tell you why...

I've heard of this and I'm concerned for my husband. I'm currently taking progesterone for my pcos/estrogen dominance, will progesterone cream help my husband? He doesn't have any symptoms...yet, and I'd like to keep it that way. He does have excess belly fat actually but he's lost some weight. How much cream should he use? I'm currently using more than 200mg a day.

Estrogen Dominance

Hi Alfredo Many thanks for this, it's the main reason I advise eating organic food when possible. No hormones are given to the animals, and no crops are sprayed. Soy is oestrogenic too, and not a good food unless fermented, see here. One thing Sears hasn't mentioned in this article are the skin care products we all use, including men now. These can also contain oestrogen mimics, sunscreens in particular are extremely dangerous, plus causing cancer. There's more info on the websites Our Stolen Future and Skin Deep. You might like to read through our page on Man Boobs which gives more info. Take care Wray

Hi there I'm delighted Alfredo pasted that info from Sears, it's something I repeat endlessly on this site too. Our food supply has been contaminated, and very few seem to be aware of it. Our drinks contain large quantities of sugars, in particular fructose. This increases triglycerides, more so in men than women. There are two sorts of belly fat, one is subcutaneous which is stimulated by oestrogen. The other is visceral fat stimulated by testosterone. Commonly referred to as SAT and VAT, ie subcutaneous adipose tissue and visceral adipose tissue. The more dangerous of the two is the VAT. I normally recommend 10-100mg/day for men, but it is dependant on symptoms. You say he has none yet, so probably the 10mg/day will be sufficient. Men can experience Oestrogen Dominance when first using progesterone, and are really put off by it! Stopping the progesterone will of course stop the symptoms, but defeats the purpose. You might be interested in reading our page on Nutrition. And if you have PCOS, this page too. Large amounts of antioxidants are needed as it's caused by oxidative stress, progesterone, although a potent antioxidant, won't reverse the PCOS alone. Take care Wray
