Does communication / being listened to [by friends/family] helps improve the estrogen level in a female ?

Does communication / being listened to [by friends/family] helps improve the  estrogen level in a female ?

Interesting question: Interesting question, but there aren't any studies that answer this specifically. Being listened to does feel good, though -- and may allow you to feel more loving and warm to those who are listening to you. Being ignored is more likely to make you feel like pulling away. If the relationship is a sexual one, being listened to may improve that without increasing actual hormone levels. ...Read more

I have heard high estrogen levels helps skin and hair?

Sort of: Low estrogen levels can cause skin and hair problems. Correcting low levels may help to resolve those problems. Using large doses to raise your level to "high" levels is more likely going to cause undesirable side effects like weight gain, headaches and mood swings. ...Read more

I have elevated dhea levels (345) and low estrogen, I am 31 years old and do not have any tumors. Could birth control help balance this out?

I have elevated dhea levels (345) and low estrogen, I am 31 years old and do not have any tumors. Could birth control help balance this out?

If you mean DHEAS: your level is normal. Why are you taking DHEA? It's metabolized to either cortisone, estrogen or testosterone and you can't control which one. Also, most of the DHEA pills don't really have much DHEA in them. You haven't provided enough facts to really tell you anything, Birth control isn't really used to "balance" anything WHy are you on estrogen and also BCP's? Talk w/your doctor, ...Read more

Doctors, may you give me names of fibroids anti-tumour foods or foods that can help shrink tumors?And why is estrogen high on monthly periods?Thanks

Fruit & Veggies: Colorful fruit and veggies are rich in flavonoids which block an important enzyme in estrogen biosynthesis. Even if youre a strict vegan its hard to avoid the hormones in the food supply. Trying to be as close to your ideal weight (cut excess body fat), exercise, and eat healthy (fruits & veggies, limit meat/dairy) will help your fibroid situation alot (and will improve your overall health too ! ...Read more

Can dim /di-indole-methane/ supplement that balances estrogen levels, help get rid of gynecomastia ?

Balancing estrogen?: Maybe. There's no good studies ; little theory; it's targeted for bodybuilders abusing steroids. You're an adult now. You're also taking prednisone, which i must suppose is prescribed by a physician for something really serious. Your life is too difficult already for you to be called "the guy with the __s". You owe it to yourself to have definitive treatment, which is office surgery. ...Read more
