Gut Hormone Connection

Did you know that your intestinal flora has a great influence on your hormonal balance and at the same time a hormonal imbalance can be the cause of digestive problems?

The tricky thing is that many people are not even aware that they have a disturbed intestinal flora, because symptoms often manifest themselves that at first glance have nothing to do with the intestines, including hormone complaints.

Many hormonal problems such as weight fluctuations, PMS, bloated belly or even main problems can be a result of the intestines not being intact and thus the estrogen level being out of balance. Because too much estrogen in the body can lead to the symptoms listed.

Here I address the 2 typical gut problems that can bring hormone imbalance:

1. Leaky Gut

In leaky gut syndrome, the intestinal mucosa is damaged and as a result bacteria, food residues and also toxins can pass through the intestinal wall and enter the bloodstream. This in turn activates our immune system and leads to silent inflammation in the long run. High levels of inflammation really pushes our liver to its limits and thus it can no longer easily eliminate excess estrogen. You have already read above what estrogen dominance entails.

2. Intestinal dysbiosis

If the intestinal flora gets out of balance, we speak of "dysbiosis". In this condition, harmful microorganisms multiply and displace the bacteria that are beneficial for us. This can happen, for example, through a long-term unhealthy lifestyle, too much stress, or the use of medications such as antibiotics. Since the microbiome plays a central role in estrogen decomposition, this again causes excess estrogen in our body and thus symptoms.
