Estrogen The Enabler
In the female body, estrogen enables all, from the creation and manufacturer of the thoughts in your brain to the beating of your heart.
Estrogen plays a central role in facilitating every known physiologic process in the female body.
Without enough estrogen, no physiologic processes take place the way they were intended to function. In fact, they will malfunction and cause conditions such as estrogen dominance.
Estrogen is the prime mover that facilitates every known biochemical reaction in the body. From head to toe, the female body is dependent upon adequate circulating estrogen.
Estrogen is responsible for how much fat a woman will have on her body and if she will be able to lose fat or not. It is also responsible for fluid balance affecting hair, skin, nails, mouth, eyes, joints, muscles, and every other part of the female body.
Estrogen is the prime sexual driver in women from whether they want to have sex to how much they enjoy it. It affects a woman's sexuality, sensuality, libido, orgasmic response, and pheromonal exchange.
Estrogen affects how a woman feels about herself, her abilities, and her place in this world. When women have enough of it, they feel good and feel like they can handle just about anything. They have a sense of confidence and mastery over their life without depression or anxiety.
The need for estrogen has been woven thread by thread to the genetic and molecular fabric of every woman and without it, the tapestry of the female physiology becomes transformed into a landscape of disease and frailty devoid of feminine beauty, health, vitality, and the ability to enter into meaningful and emotional connections with others.
Estrogen is involved in an extremely sophisticated web of information transfer telling every cell of the body how to function, what to think and what to do, how to behave, and what to look like.
Without enough estrogen running through your blood, your brain and body will malfunction and decline. And you will continue to get worse mentally and physically as long as estrogen is deficient until you die.
The greatest asset a woman has is estrogen when she has enough of it and is her worst enemy if she has too little.
