Hair Loss Associated with Estrogen Dominance and Breast Cysts
Hair loss when accompanied by signs and symptoms of Estrogen Dominance is almost always linked to hypothyroidism. The hair will become thinner and fat on the belly and hips will increase despite dieting and exercise. Body temperature will be in the 97'sF as opposed to 98.6F. However, the thyroid blood tests free T3, free T4, and TSH will be normal or within low normal.
The doctor says you are doing fine. But you are not doing fine. Your hair is falling out.
What is going on?
A more astute doctor says, "Let's give you a little thyroid hormone." And because of the thyroid hormone you get better and feel better. So you MUST BE hypothyroid (low thyroid), but the lab blood tests are NORMAL.
What is happening?
The most astute doctor will assume that you are NOT lying and you are telling the truth, and that you really have hypothyroidism. You have hair loss. You notice that your hair is getting thinner and you are losing more hair by seeing more hair in the drain in the shower. You try to diet and exercise, but despite Herculean efforts, you still GAIN weight on the belly and hips. You put a thermometer in your mouth, and your body temperature is in the 97'sF, not 98.6F. However, your thyroid blood tests show you are normal.
What is happening is that your SENSITIVITY to thyroid hormone has decreased. You have become less sensitive to thyroid hormone.
It is because you are Estrogen Dominant. Estrogen Dominance simply means you have too much estrogen.
Where is this extra estrogen coming from? The extra estrogen is coming from chemicals that you put on your skin. These chemicals mimic estrogen (xenoestrogens). Xenoestrogens pretend to be estrogen. Xenoestrogens are NOT estradiol, estriol, or estrone. Xenoestrogens are a "form" of "fake" estrogen. Xenoestrogens fit into the estrogen receptor and pretend to be estrogen. Phytoestrogens (plant estrogens) can also mimic estrogen and cause Estrogen Dominance.
Estrogen Dominance says to the body to "slow down and build up fat for the "upcoming" pregnancy". The human body is fooled into thinking that it must build up fat. The human body is fooled into loosing hair and gaining weight and fat on the belly and hips by the fake chemical messengers xenoestrogens and phytoestrogens.
What is the primary symptom of Estrogen Dominance?
Right before your period, you will have breast tenderness and bloating. Right before you period you will have a chocolate craving. Estrogen Dominant women have Magnesium deficiencies and Vitamin B deficiencies. Chocolate is high in Magnesium. So that is why you have a Chocolate Craving. Having a chocolate craving is NOT a failure of will power. A chocolate craving is a sign of a magnesium deficiency secondary to estrogen dominance.
What is the solution to Hair Loss associated with breast cysts?
The solution is to avoid xenoestrogens and phytoestrogens. Also taking Natural Progesterone will counter act the effect of Estrogen Dominance. Natural Progesterone opposes the effect of Estrogen, assuming there is NOT way too much estrogen.
The most important xenoestrogens and phytoestrogens to cut out are the stuff you put on the skin. This is because the stuff you put on the skin goes directly into the body bypassing the liver. Anything you put in the mouth is 90% prefiltered by the liver. So anything you put on the skin is 10 times in potency, than anything you put in the mouth. This is counter intuitive.
So if you avoid xenoestrogens and phytoestrogens, and take Natural Progesterone, usually your hair will become thicker after 3-6 months. Your hair will stop falling out. The fat on your belly and hips will automatically disappear without dieting and without exercise. If you are taking thyroid hormone, your need to take thyroid hormone will decrease and perhaps you may not need to take thyroid hormone at all. Make sure to tip toe down with the thyroid hormone with your doctor as stopping thyroid hormone suddenly can have disastrous consequences.
So Estrogen Dominance causes hair loss and fat build up on the belly and hips by causing a decreased sensitivity to thyroid hormone. Estrogen Dominance is caused by xenoestrogens and phytoestrogens whose primary route of entry is the skin as opposed to oral entry. This is counter intuitive.

"My long blonde hair stopped falling out in big globs in the shower. ..."

I just wanted to thank you so much for Progestelle and what it has done for me. I have had stage 4, severe endometriosis for 18 years. Every month was worse than you can imagine when my period came. I have been to 24 doctors, gone through 2 surgical procedures, and have been on powerful narcotic pain relievers for the past 6 years. The doctors had told me I should just join a research project for endometriosis. They had no answers except to get pregnant, go on continuous birth control, or try to get disability since I was missing so much work. After only a month of using Progestelle and cutting out all Xenoestrogens, my long blonde hair stopped falling out in big globs in the shower, I felt more energized, and my pain at my last period was cut by at least 75%. I am on my 3rd month now and have stopped having the tremendous bowel endometriosis pain altogether! I am able to surf, go out with friends, and care for my 2 adopted children. I have stopped missing work for a week every month! I am telling all my internet friends about this amazing product. My pain during my period was, on a scale of 0-10, with 10 being the highest, an 11 before I started using Progestelle and cutting out all Xenoestrogens. Now, 3 months later, it is about a 4. I am sure that with continued use, I will be eventually a 1, or maybe even a 0!!
Thank you for helping me get my life back!

Hi Dr. Eckhart, Just to let you know, we are out of school for the summer, so I will not be able to access this email until the end of July. I will be asking questions, etc. at home on my computer.
I have been feeling so much better with cramping at a 1 or 2 out of 10. The only pain I have is from the fibromyalgia, and I believe God will heal me from that too. My wrist is still sore, but I am continuing physical therapy and MSM. I have also been taking Pau D'arco at night for my liver and candida. It seems to help keep me regular in using the restroom.
My 17 year old adopted daughter is home from college and was complaining of the beginning signs of endometriosis. Once she stopped using lotion and switched to TSP for laundry, her symptoms almost have disappeared. Praise God for your studies on parabems, etc. so that she will not have to suffer through what I did for 18 years.
Aloha and Mahalo!
