Many herbs, foods and spices have estrogens activity and are called phytoestrogens. These compounds are generally weak estrogens, but again, in a body that is already experiencing too much estrogen, adding more may not be a good idea.

The following are some of the strongest phytoestrogen containing products, along with recommendations:

  • Avoid Coffee, Decaffeinated Coffee, and Beer
  • Avoid Sunflower Seeds, Red Clover Tea, Camomille Tea, Alfalfa Sprouts, Queen Anne's lace (wild carrot), Pomegranate, Fennel, Licorice, Red Clover, Yucca, Hops (Beer) and Motherwort.
  • Avoid Phytoestrogens that block and interfere with the action of Natural Progesterone: Bloodroot, Ocotillo, Mandrake, Oregano, Damiana, Pennyroyal, Verbanna, Nutmeg, Tumeric, Yucca, Thyme, Calamus rt., Red Clover, Goldenseal, Licorice, Mistletoe, Cumin, Fennel, Camomille, Cloves. \
  • No Sunflower Oil and No Cotton Seed
  • No Soy
Soy contains a variety of toxic chemicals, which cannot be fully metabolized by the body, unless it undergoes a long cooking, or fermentation process. Over time, high concentrations of isoflavones in the body can have a significant cumulative estrogenic and toxic effect, especially when they are exposed to organs that have sensitive estrogen receptors sites such as the breast, uterus, and thyroid. Exposure to the estrogenic effect from soy, though weak, should be avoided in those who are at risk or, have symptoms of, or are in an estrogen dominance state.
