Estrogen deficientfast processors have more acidic body compositions and cant handle the acidic foods that estrogen deficientslow processors thrive on. A 53-year-old patient of mine, Lorraine, is a perfect example of this hormone type.
Lorraine, who had recently entered menopause, came to me complaining of pain, stiffness, and immobility. She also told me that she was feeling more nervous and agitated than ever. On top of that, her skin and hair had become very dry, and she was experiencing unbearable menopause hot flashes, night sweats, insomnia, and vaginal dryness. With all of these severe symptoms, it was clear to me that Lorraine was a typical estrogen deficientfast processor.
I suggested that she completely eliminate all acidic foods, such as red meat, citrus fruits, and hot spices, and instead follow a vegetarian diet that had greater emphasis on cooked grains, beans, salads, and vegetables. I also recommended that she trade in the hot spices she loved so much for cooler spices like lemon balm, cilantro, basil, marjoram, and chamomile. Almost immediately, Lorraine noticed an improvement in her pain and immobility. A few months later, her menopause symptoms had calmed significantly, and she started to feel much more comfortable in general.
If you are an estrogen deficientfast processor, you, like Lorraine, need to avoid all acidic and spicy foods and eat a mostly vegetarian, nutrient- and mineral-rich alkaline diet that will help restore you to a naturally healthy state of alkalinity. This includes:
Gluten-free whole grains
Legumes (beans and peas)
Small amounts of raw seeds and nuts
Wild fish such as salmon, mackerel, trout, and tuna
Sea vegetables such as kelp
Fruits like bananas, melons, and papayas
Free-range poultry in moderation
Eating a diet rich in these types of foods will help will increase your energy, stamina, and resistance to disease. Plus, youll notice a dramatic decrease in troubling menopause symptoms like menopause hot flashes, night sweats, and vaginal dryness.
