Estrogen Dominance and Aromatase

It cannot be reiterated enough; estrogen is the cause of uterine fibroids and other reproductive and endocrine disorders, such as breast cancer, ovarian cancer, ovarian cysts, yeast infections, endometriosis, and the list goes on and on.

Isn't estrogen a natural female hormone?

Estrogen is the unnatural result of the natural hormones, progesterone and testosterone, being chemically mutated by a chemical known as aromatase. This process is known as aromatization. The result of aromatization, amongst other factors, especially xeno-estrogen ingestion, is estrogen dominance.

There are three major types of estrogens that occur endogenously (internally) in women:

  • Estrone (E1)
  • Estradiol (E2)
  • Estriol (E3)

They are steroidal, and as such readily diffuse across the cell membrane. Once inside the cell, they bind to and activate estrogen receptors which in turn modulate, or mutate the expression of many genes (and therefore the cells).

Estrogen dominance is known to cause or advance the following diseases and conditions:

  • Cancers: (see…/…/Vol2_Iss10_may26_03/)
  • Breast (see
  • Ovarian (see
  • Endometrial (see…)
  • Lung (see

  • Lupus (see…/immune_connective_joint/lupus_01.htm)
  • Thyroiditis (see
  • Cervical Dysplasia (see
  • Fibrocystic breasts (see
  • Gallbladder Disease(see
  • Hair Loss (see…/women-hair-loss_b_2597382.h… )
  • Hypoglycemia (see…/estrogen-catabolic-stre…)
  • Polycystic Ovaries (see…)
  • Prostate Cancer (men only) (see
  • Water Retention (Bloating) (see…/how-having-too-much-estrogen-c…/ )

Estrogen decides body fat distribution, and, in women, fat is stored on the hips, buttocks, abdomen and thighs. Fat cells (white adipose tissue) manufacture and store estrogen, so the elimination of fat will also increase/expedite the desired elimination of your fibroids. Remember, this is always the same for cysts and yeast infections.

Aromatase, also known as estrogen synthase (because it synthesizes estrogen), has been scientifically proven to inhibit the spin of the cell's mitochondria, resulting in diminished cellular health, depleted energy and, at worst, cellular necrosis.

Aromatase is found in the following foods:

  • Tofu
  • Soybeans
  • Soy Protein Isolate
  • Sunflower
  • Soybean Oil
  • Safflower Oil
  • Corn Oil
  • Alcohol
  • Cheese
  • Milk
  • Legumes


For the complete list of aromatase and xeno-estrogen based foods, and aromatase/estrogen inhibitor foods refer to Got Fibroids? The Fibroid Elimination Bible

The Fibroid Elimination Bible is exactly what your doctor should order, whether you are suffering from uterine fibroids, cysts, endometriosis, or any other reproductive disorder. The fundamental premise of The Fibroid Elimination Bible is that by creating the right conditions, your body will begin to naturally heal itself. How? Through removing the major toxins, and feeding your body essential, nutritionally-beneficial foods and natural, mineral rich supplements.
