DNA Oestrogen

This is another in the series of revealing DNA tests I've been trained in and am now using in practice this year. This is a particularly interesting one for women, but also for men regarding prostate health. DNA oestrogen includes 10 genes involved in oestrogen biosynthesis, oestrogen metabolism and liver detoxification pathways.

Oestrogen hormones affect the growth, differentiation and function of a number of target tissues. This test may be of use to women who suffer from possible oestrogen-dominant conditions such as endometriosis, PMS, fibroids, or where there is a family history of breast, uterine or ovarian cancer. We know that these conditions arise in the presence of excess oestrogen, or oestrogen dominance, when the hormones oestrogen and progesterone may be out of balance. Knowing how we metabolise oestrogen and what foods promote oestrogen production and help prevent its absorption on a cellular level is a useful tool in achieving hormonal health. It may also be interesting where prostate issues are concerned.

Modulation of oestrogen metabolism can be accomplished through dietary and lifestyle modifications.
