the detox diet to naturally address estrogen dominance

Andrea Nakayama's

ESTROZEN

What is estrogen dominance?

Why is it that you can’t walk past a cupcake without gaining 3 pounds just from the thought of eating it?

What’s happened to your soft skin, full head of hair, flat belly and calm disposition?

How do you temper the tenderness you feel in your breasts or ovaries?

Even tiny fluctuations in your hormones can have a huge effect on how you feel. There’s a delicate balance between too little and too much of each hormone, and modern life has caused so many of us to end up with estrogen dominance—even when we age and have low estrogen levels.

Estrogen dominance can contribute to the symptoms that plague you most.

Get this: Over 70,000 registered chemicals in the US have hormonal and toxic effects that are difficult for your body to detoxify and that increase your estrogenic load.

The good news is that by shifting the foods you consume, the water you drink, and certain key lifestyle factors, you can bring back the balance, address those niggling symptoms and finally get your life back. And it’s easier than you think!

EstroZen is a completely online course, so you can attend the class and reap the benefits of the education and resources from the comfort of your own home.

One class will be released each week, with new information, suggested diet plans and action steps. You’ll also receive recipes and handouts to support that week’s teachings.

Week 1
We’ll gently move into learning about the importance of removing the major inflammatory foods from the diet and the impact of balancing blood sugar - the foundation of hormone balance! You’ll learn exactly what to do, and also why!
Week 2
We’ll heighten the experience by working on the body’s hormonal thermostat and guardian angel, demonstrating how biology can work for you, not against you so that you can reap long term benefits from your efforts.
Week 3
We’ll focus more on excretion of what we carry in excess and on fueling our bodies in a brand new way so that you can feel lighter, more clear, and ready to harness your hormones and your global health concerns.
  • You’ll learn WHY you’ll be removing certain foods and adding others to support both your detoxification of excess hormones and your hormone balance.
  • You’ll have a comprehensive list of which specialty foods and superfoods to consume for satiety and stability.
  • You’ll walk away with a complex understanding of which foods and lifestyle factors impair your body and its capability to sustain your delicate hormonal equilibrium.
  • After 21-days—feeling better than you have in a long time—you’ll have a toolbox of new recipes, habits and practices that will enable you to maintain a healthier lifestyle and know you are taking optimal care of yourself in the months and years to come.
  • You’ll know how to take the driver’s seat in your personal hormonal health care.
  • Most importantly, you’ll feel lighter, stronger, more focused and more calm.

About my journey with estrogen dominance

About my journey with estrogen dominance

I’m Andrea Nakayama, a Functional Medicine Nutritionist who’s personally battled the debilitating effects of hormone imbalance.

I remember feeling helpless and frustrated when I first started experiencing symptoms, but didn’t yet know what was going on.

I was eating a clean diet, and yet I started to notice a few extra pounds appearing around my middle and not budging. (I knew something was up when I started bypassing my jeans, which felt too tight, in favor of skirts and dresses.)

My breasts were tender to the touch. They were so sore that hugs from my then young son were so painful that I began to avoid his sweet and playful embrace.

I would crash hard, really hard, in the afternoons. I would end my work day around 4pm and feel like I needed to eat an entire jar of peanut butter to stabilize my blood sugar and regain my energy. (And yes, some days I did indeed eat the better part of a jar!)

My fingers and toes were often so frigid, I would wake myself up in the middle of the night from the shock of pain when my toes touched my leg.

Although none of my symptoms were severe, these niggling symptoms all added up to not feeling "right". I knew something was wrong.

But I had dreams and goals still to create (and I bet you do too!), so I soldiered on. I soldiered on until I realized that soldiering was contributing to my symptoms.

So I slowed down and began to listen.

I listened to my body in a way I had never listened before, and I began to learn what my particular body needed in order to heal.

I learned how to reduce the toxic load on my body, how to make adjustments in my diet that shifted my internal terrain away from the hormonal and immune balances that were holding me back. Fortunately the changes I made were delicious, and I even learned how to get my Zen on—finding peace in the management of my symptoms.

You can too! My passion as a Functional Medicine Nutritionist and educator is to teach people around the globe about the root causes of chronic illness, understand why it’s happening, and to help people live their best lives.

That’s why I created EstroZen—to help you get back in the driver’s seat of your health, and to live your best life! 100s of people have been through this course, and have transformed their lives because of it. I want that for you too.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Who suffers from estrogen dominance and is this something I need to be concerned about? How about my partner?

    Sadly, most everyone of us suffers from estrogen dominance these days!

    Our exposure to environmental estrogens is tipping the scale in your bathroom and in your internal chemistry. Estrogen dominance is prevalent in women and men alike, in our girls and even in our boys. Get this: Over 70,000 registered chemicals in the US have hormonal and toxic effects that are difficult for your body to detoxify.

  • You mention snacks with Fat, Fiber & Protein for maintaining blood sugar as an important baseline for hormonal balance. I am wondering if you have some suggestions for snacks like this. And, what if you are on the go?

    This is a great question. I definitely encourage people to travel around with things on hand so they don’t get caught in a pinch, with their blood sugars down. This is going to lead to the kind of desperate spontaneity that rarely serves our goals. (Low blood sugar = grabbing whatever is convenient.)

    Two suggestions are making miso soup and our Flax Max bar, which can be prepared in advance. Thermoses are great and the bars hold up well in a wax bag or small container (especially as the weather cools — your good fats won’t melt as easily!).

    I also advise people to carry nuts, seeds or some kind of healthy bar option to help keep even and balanced.

  • Do you have any other tips about helping women who have belly weight and are around menopausal age?

    Absolutely! This is one of the things we’ll be diving into in EstroZen.

    Sometimes the weight falls off during the course and other times it lingers, here or there. One of those places is right on the belly. Belly fat that won’t budge is a good indicator that there is some hormonal imbalance at play.

    It’s important to balance blood sugar. That’s #1. Then we need to support adrenal issues. If you’re living in a state of fight-or-flight, as many of us are, you’re producing excesses of the hormone cortisol. Excess cortisol = belly fat.

    But we can't produce excess cortisol forever. We'll run out of steam. What happens then? We produce less than we need. So then we don't just have less fight-or-flight and diminished get-up-and-go, we're stuck with the fatigue and the flab!

    But there's another hormonal imbalance that can easily lead to belly fat. That's estrogen dominance. This is a situation that has become epidemic in our society for men, women and children alike. In EstroZen we'll explore How & Why this is happening, as well as WHAT to do about it! That's what EstroZen is all about!

    We'll beat the belly fat by cleaning up our diet, our environment and discover what BALANCE really means.

  • Will you provide Gluten Free and Vegan alternatives?

    You can rest assured that anything you ever do with me or the Functional Nutrition Alliance is gluten free and sugar free. Through the weeks we will remove some other food constituents to support your body’s balance as well.

    There is some other non-dairy animal protein included, if you want or already eat it. There's only a couple animal protein dishes each week and that way you can eliminate those to suit your dietary needs or restrictions, or include a bit more as your body requires.

    And you’ll find plenty of answers in the EstroZen Answer Board to help navigate your unique needs dietary and otherwise.

  • What if I eat a grain-free diet? Can I do this?

    As with the animal protein, there is little to no grain in this course. Where it is included, it can easily be substituted.

    If you always wanted to see what a grain-free diet could do to reduce your inflammation, pain, help with weight loss and mental clarity, then this is a great opportunity for that, among other things. If you're scared of a grain-free diet, don't be! You'll be pleasantly surprised by how good the food is and you'll have so many recipes to carry you forward with a new way of eating - no matter how you decide to eat beyond the three weeks.

  • What are good supplements to take?

    We've actually set up a supplement store to help you make the choices that will best benefit your experience. The recommended supplements are not required, but instead meant to support your explorations and inquiries should you choose to bring in that additional help for your hormone balancing.

    The bottom line? We've got your diet and supplement needs covered!

  • Is this a detox? I'm scared of a detox! I've heard horrible things about detoxes. I've heard about friends doing detoxes and starving or living off of lemon and water drinks. I'm busy and don't have time to slow down or not have enough energy. Can I still balance my hormones without starving myself?

    Deep breath. We're going into Zen territory here.

    I know many people use the terms detox and cleanse interchangeably. But at the Functional Nutrition Alliance, we've created a distinction between the two. It’s this distinction that will help you to make the appropriate investment of your time and resources to reach your optimal health goals.

    We’re taking out the substances that slow you down, make you sick, clog your sinuses, cause gas and bloating, make you retain unnecessary weight and leave you feeling tired and foggy. Hormonal havoc!

    Sometimes the things we’re removing are foods and sometimes they’re more than foods - behaviors or beliefs, patterns and habits, environmental toxins, all the things that are holding us back. Our intent here is hormonal balance and understanding how to achieve that for yourself. We'll be getting into the nitty gritty while nurturing ourselves with delicious foods and grounding practices.

    And at FxNA, we never remove without replacing. So you know exactly what to eat and what to do to help you feel great.
