Estrogen imbalance

This is about estrogen modulation, estrogen deficiency, and estrogen excess. See the general blog for the latest updates.

Estrogen deficiency

Signs of estrogen deficiency, estrogen receptor desensitization or lowered estrogen response include hot-flashes, hirsutism, alcopecia and itchy skin. High body temperature typically occurs with hot-flashes. Estrogen deficiency is commonly associated with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), high luteinizing hormone (LH) and insulin insensitivity.

For personal programs of increasing estrogen and estrogen response, see hirsutism01 and hirsutism02.

Estrogen excess

Signs of estrogen excess can include headache, low body temperature and heavy menstruation. Endometriosis is a concern of excess estrogen.

Receptor and enzyme modulation

From anecdoctal evidence, it seems that when aromatase enzymes, estrogen receptors or androgen receptors are sensitized in the presence of androgenic (testosterone) prominence, estrogen deficiency symptoms increase.

Aromatase is the conversion of androgens, with the exception of DHT, into estrogens.

Aromatase modulation

It happens that aromatase enzymes occur in tissue where Estrogen Receptors alpha (α) and beta (β) are present. This cellular tissue includes: ovaries, corpus luteum, uterus, breast, adrenal glands, liver, skin, muscle, bone and fatty tissue. The capability for androgen conversion into estrogen in granulosa cells within the ovaries is very important for reproductive health.

Follicle stimulating hormone (FSH) in small amounts increases aromatase synthesis, but it requires other hormones for maintaining hormone sensitivity and hormone balance.

Estrogen receptor modulation

It seems that estrogen receptor, especially ERβ, upregulation during a heavy balance of androgens increases androgenic imbalance further.

DHT modulation

DHT is a strong hormone that downregulates androgen receptors. Surprisingly, in small amounts, androgens, including DHT, can resensitize aromatase enzymes in mammals (unlike in birds and in fish). However, the outcome is likely conditional in the presence of estrogen and progesterone.

Blog updates: breast topics and health related content.

Hirsutism02 - February 03, 2020
In the first two weeks, her hair conditions improved noticeably: body hair lowered, and scalp hair improved. There were also minor gains in breast size.

Jellie - January 13, 2020
The evening before, she took a tea of 3,000mg fennel, 1,500mg sunflower, and about 50mg each of spearmint and fenugreek. Measurements for bust and hips are both 37¼". Underbust to nipple is about 3¾" Ovulation is perhaps about to occur. Phytohormone break down likely influenced ovulation.

Hops - February 09, 2020
Investigating replacements for hops Looking into valerian and passionfruit as partial replacements for hops. They have similar properties based on mood. It is underinvestigated if their effects on GABA and mood has to do with an influence on prolactin. There is not enough information on the prenylflavonoid content on passionfruit, and the flavonoid content in valerian. There is a similarity in valerian that it can cause skin sensitivity, like hops. Valerian and passionfruit should likely be avoided during proliferative phase, like hops. Beets and figs are other plants to investigate. There isn't enough information available on the phytohormone content of beets. Certain figs have hormonal properties for being used for galactagogues and preventing miscarriages. There are also anti-inflamatory properties of figs. Figs contain lignans, and flavonoids which need to be further investigated. The type of prenylflavonoid matters, in what the receptors it will target and the effect. Milkthistle is a partial substitute for hops, but it's effects are mainly on ERβ. Sunflower seed and wheat bread seemed to cause a minor improvement from allergic-like symptoms. Sunflower did improve hormone balance slightly.

Anethole & estragole - June 25, 2019
Many known stilbenes are estrogen receptor antagonists. Stilbenes and their polymers include: anethole, dianethole, estragole, tamoxifen, stilbene and stilbestrol. Spearmint and fennel contain stilbenes as active hormonal constituents. Based on anecdotal information from spearmint's and fennel's actions, anethole, dianethole and estragole are likely ERα selective. Anethole is another name for transanethole, and Stilbene is another term for transtilbene. Estragole and anethole are isomers. Dianethole and photoanethole are polymers of anethole.

Breast Development and Endocrinology, 3rd Ed - May 22, 2019
Expanded and clarified details for Breast Development and Endocrinology 3rd edition. From now on, this will be volume 1. These edits will reflect in Super Bazongas. Herb schedule will be edited, but same herb combinations will be used as basis. Future releases of Super Bazongas will be volume 2.

Super Bazongas: Note - October 05, 2019
Super Bazongas, Vol 2, is not up to date, and is currently available for archive purposes. It will be updated at a later time. See program blogs for more recent information.
