Whether you have estrogen dominance or are looking for menopause relief, eliminating dairy can help.

Dairy products are one of the primary sources of food allergies in the standard American diet. Symptoms include fatigue, depression, bloating, intestinal gas, bowel changes, wheezing, nasal congestion, and frequent colds.

If you have estrogen dominance, dairy can also make your PMS symptoms worse, and weaken your adrenal glands over time, greatly increasing your susceptibility to stress. Also, the high saturated fat content of many dairy products is a risk factor for excess estrogen levels in the body. Unhealthy, anaerobic bacteria in the intestinal tract actually convert metabolites of estrogen into forms of free estrogen that can be reabsorbed from the digestive tract back into the body. This elevates your body’s estrogen levels, which can aggravate conditions such as fibroids and endometriosis.

Women suffering from menopause symptoms may also notice that dairy causes anxiety, irritability, depression or mood swings, insomnia, fatigue, dizziness, confusion and disorientation, headaches, and joint pain.

Even if you are not allergic to dairy products, they can be difficult for many women to digest. Plus, the artificial hormones, as well as the pesticides used in livestock feed, make cow’s milk an unhealthy choice.
