Fat tissue is tissue that produces hormones. One of those hormones is estrogen. The same star of the female cycle. Our fat tissues also tend to accumulate hormones which arrive from external sources such as the food we eat, pesticides, plastic and more. Most of those external hormones are actually derivatives of estrogen. Research shows a strong link between excess estrogen and conditions such as polyps, fibroids, and various cancers.
Excess estrogen can be derived from taking birth control pills and other medications that contain hormones.
In addition, being overweight in the first place can be a result of a hormonal imbalance such as hypothyroid or excess adrenal function which produces cortisol, the stress hormone.
Nowadays, it’s common to treat overweight people with a much more holistic approach. Therefore, instead of focusing on only losing weight, there is great support given to the hormonal glands, especially the thyroid and adrenal glands.
