Estrogen: How to Balance Hormones with Proper Food & Vitamins- Thomas DeLauer How do we balance estrogen and testosterone in our bodies and how do we know which estrogens are good or bad? You can check out more at http://www.ThomasDeLauer.com Estrogens are a group of hormones present in both women and men. Functions include: Puberty changes in women Fertility Plays a role in controlling cholesterol levels Helps bone health Affects the brain, including mood Also affects the heart, skin and other body tissues Affects heart and blood vessels In males, the maturation of sperm and labido maintenance Estrogen is produced by the ovaries, fat tissue, testis and adrenal glands. There are three kinds of estrogen: Estradiol - the primary kind of estrogen found in women during their fertile years Primarily produced in the ovaries, but also the placenta and adrenal glands Excess estradiol is implicated in many diseases, such as cancers and fibroids Found in both women and men Estriol - the estrogen associated with pregnancy A waste product of estrogen metabolism Estrone - the estrogen produced postmenopause Produced in tissues throughout the body, mainly fat and muscle tissues Known as the weakest form of estrogen Found in both women and men Estrogen levels change: Throughout the month when fertile, with peak estrogen in the middle of a woman’s menstrual cycle, signalling ovulation, and the lowest levels while bleeding. Estrogen levels drop after menopause. Problems can arise when your body produces too much or too little estrogen Too little - symptoms: Women Irregular periods Mood swings Loss of sexual desire Trouble sleeping Hot flashes Headaches Men Excess adipose tissue around the midsection Low sexual desire Too little causes: Anorexia Extreme exercise Medications Hypogonadism Post-childbirth Too much - symptoms: Women Irregular periods Weight gain Fatigue Low sex drive Depression and anxiety More intense premenstrual pain Cysts Men Erectile dysfunction Female characteristics, such as breasts Prostate enlargement and cancer Low sex drive Depression Fatigue Weight gain Too much causes: Obesity Puberty Diabetes Pregnancy High blood pressure Ovarian or adrenal gland tumors Medications When estrogen is broken down through aerobic metabolism, it can be broken into “good” or “bad” estrogen metabolites. The good metabolites, 2-hydroxyestrone (2-OHE), are estrogen antagonists. They have high antioxidant activity, providing protection for the heart and brain. The bad metabolites, 16-hydroxyestrone (16-OHE), are estrogen agonists. They have been implicated in causing cancer and weight gain. Therapies that increase the 2-OHE:16-OHE ratio are thought to decrease the risk for a number of estrogen-responsive cancers. Natural compounds found in food have been founds to be antiestrogenic and thus are being further explored to discover how to capture these benefits for possible cancer prevention and treatment. DIM (Diindolylmethane) DIM is a stable compound derived from the plant indole I3C (indole-3-carbinol) found in cruciferous vegetables. Dietary indoles found in cruciferous veggies such as broccoli and cabbage, have been found to exhibit chemoprotective and chemotherapeutic properties against many cancers. Its benefit has to do with hormone balancing. I3C has been found to decrease estrogen signaling and alter estrogen metabolism, leading to a reduced production of “bad” estrogen metabolites. DIM consumption has been linked to an increase in the production of the “good” estrogen metabolites and thus a resulting decrease in the production of the “bad” estrogen metabolites. -Increases the 2-OHE:16-OHE ratio One study on women with thyroid proliferative disease (TPD) found that supplemental DIM enhanced estrogen metabolism in such a way as to act as a dietary antiestrogenic supplement and in this way may decrease the likelihood of women to develop TPD. DIM has other hormone balancing properties and can contribute to more balanced hormones. -This more beneficial hormone balance can lead to a healthier metabolism The hormonal balance influence of DIM also positively impacts testosterone. For men, this estrogen metabolism has the added benefit of freeing up testosterone in the body. Free testosterone is important for mood, energy and labido. References: 1.

What do you think of the effects of birth control and weight lifting? Can it make it harder to burn fat?
Swagat Suryawanshi (2 months ago)
As bad as it feels I am going to be that guy who makes this the 70th comment. Ok so I'd eat a farm of broccoli no problems but what is the best way to eat it in your opinion? Raw? Boiled? Boiled for how long? Will boiling it reduce it's potency?

Love white board videos!! Please do more really in depth
Philanthrop Chic (4 months ago)
I find the actual broccoli sprouts (which have 50x the amount of DIMM of the full grown broccoli plant) are more effective than the supplements. I grow them at home and add to salads and soups.

Can you please make a video about OAT axis disregulation with a persons body shutting down and NOT producing cortisol, progesterone due to estrogen dominance and thyroid going under. And the link between them all. Along with how epinephrine and norepinephrine are greatly impacted by low or high cortisol. In other words the perfect storm that has happened to me. Also how to fix it. :)

I appreciate all the vieos man. WIsh you would just tell me a video of what to do it's so much science I'm overwhelmed, just want the practical. I heard eggs and chicke and general meat is estrogen high. So not sure what to eat man haha.

>>>PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE do a segment on KETO for PCOS, there is no cure only managing it through lifestyle changes and KETO seems to be the best solution but nobody can explain it like you do and break down the science behind it. There is so much misinformation and speculation in regards to modifying the KETO diet for PCOS it would be great to have someone clarify the specifics of the KETO modification for PCOS. P.S. I love your videos very informational, so helpful! Following on FB and Insta as well.

How many mg of DIM per day? and is DIM plus with Bioperine recomended?
Angel Heart (1 year ago)
Insightful, as always. I once took DIM plus thinking it'd be the cure all for my estrogen dominance. It made my hair fall out! In about 2 weeks. I was alarmed cos I already dealt with male pattern baldness that I never noticed when it started but on DIM the hair loss was drastic and alarming. The human body is so delicate. I think it's best to stick to getting DIM from natural foods like broccoli and eating carrots to help the body metabolize excess estrogen. I've noticed same negative results when I try any of the 'hormone balancing' supplements other than Omega 3. Any thoughts?
Ronnel Inocencio (8 months ago)
Angel Heart you should partnering dim and exercise too improve diindolylmethane circulation in our body to avoid stocking or blockage of toxins and bad estrogens

Hello Thomas.. First off thank you so much for all the information night have a question though. How does this diet affect a woman who had had gastro by pass, gall bladder removed and appendix? I know with the oils I have hi take in smaller amounts note offer. I know all of these are vital. So I just keep doing the vitamins, estrogen, see stevia good salt and figured oils. I've been able too transform mane of my veggie to ketooc🎊

Is this something u feel a woman should look into during menopause? I am trying to find all natural ways to figure out my menopause issues.
Denise Galiano Contact Barbara Hoffman here on youtube. she discusses more about estrogen dominance and menopause etc. I am using her DIM supplement which I recommend to friends and families.

would DIM be good to take if someone is taking steroids?
Ole Beyer (1 year ago)
I am consuming a good amount of non organic whey-protein-concentrate on a daily base (about 75 gramm a day).Does this Protein also contain estrogenes and other substances that increase estrogen levels?
Ole Beyer Go plant based and organic.
zerothehero123 (1 year ago)
You kinda answered your own question there. Why not get your protein from real food?
pablo9364 (1 year ago)
Very good thumbnail picture. Good video too.
Major Horn (1 year ago)
yeah its actually a great supplement you would have to eat loads of broccoli to get the effect and broccoli is not cheap and its horrible as well.
This guy on the video has a great shape! Keep working on that!
Daniel Ganoza (1 year ago)
There are a few test boosters out there going for $20-30 from popular brands that have DIM (from brocolli) anywhere from 250-500 me per serving. Would that help?
rmesvp (1 year ago)
witch supplement would you opt (recommend) as good to best quality you know ( and will not, should not either hold you for this )...to I may add Diindolylmethane Tks in advance
paki1692 (1 year ago)
Hi Thomas nice video, but I have to disagree for what concern DIM supplementation. Several studies say that it is the most potent anti-androgen plant. Higher doses (greater than 100mg) of isolated pure DIM can saturate tissues and block androgen (e.g. testosterone and dihydrotestosterone) receptors and inhibit the protein synthesis induced by the anabolic effects of androgens. Very low doses of DIM (less than 100mg daily) in combination with other sulforaphanes and necessary cofactors folate and B12 as found in nature can help alter estrogen detoxification pathways in the gut and liver and improve the 2:16 alpha hydroxyl estrone ratios to reduce excessive estrogen activity. Higher doses of DIM act systemically to block anabolic androgens and mTOR pathways. mTOR is necessary for cell growth and for this mechanism DIM is currently being researched as a potential tool for reducing growth of cancer and tumours; this research is still a long way from being able to make any solid anti-cancer claims for DIM. However, it is important for athletes using DIM as part of a muscle building campaign to know that mTOR is the main anabolic pathway necessary for muscle hypertrophy and DIM will also block mTOR stimulation of cell growth. And more.....In a human study conducted nearly 20 years ago, 6-7 mg/kg of IC3 per day was able to significantly increase the clearance of estrogens via urine in both, men and women. The supplement industry seems to have accepted the fact that it’s DIM (again DIM is just one of the many metabolites of IC3) that is responsible of these effects, and thus, extracted DIM would work just as well as IC3 or consumption of crusiferous vegetables…However, one animal study challenges this claim: The researchers from The University of Kansas Medical Center, found out that IC3 and tamoxifen (prescription estrogen receptor antagonist) both blocked estrogen (via different mechanisms), whereas extracted DIM had – even at the highest dose – ” no significant effects on any of the endpoints studied”. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/12383709

gman 3323 (1 year ago)
Thank you for your videos, they are short for the amount of info you provide (lots), very informative. Used to take DIM, but not consistently, I'll start taking it again and will be consistent and see what it does and see if it helps getting rid of the last layer of fat in my abdomen.

Hi Thomas - At 0:15 was that you down low in the hay as you were strategically filming that frolicking couple? Just curious.

what is your take on getting a Dutch Hormone test to test hormonal imbalance?
Ricardo Robinson (1 year ago)
Thanks for the info I'm 25 male 6'3 I went from 230 to 318 pounds due to medication and ever since then my hair started thinning so I went to a natural food store and the lady told me its probably because of all the fat gain which is causing an estrogen imbalance. She suggested i3c so im taking that right now and I started working out more to get rid of this stubborn fat. I've been taking it for 3 weeks and hoping to see some results.
Keshaw Kishan (1 year ago)
any updates +michael ?
ddizzler2 (1 year ago)
Michael Robinson what's your diet like cause that would be the main problem in my opinion
Kevin Johnson (1 year ago)
