COMT & MAO Hormone Support

To support optimum methylation and neurotransmitter pathways, we must balance our sex hormones. Lucky for us there are many safe, natural, and powerful tools available to help accomplish that. In my clinic one of the biggest issues I see is estrogen dominance. And as I have pointed out in my article Treating COMT and MAO: the Hormonal Cause of Stress and Anxiety, sex hormones play a huge role in how we react to stress – be it physical, chemical or emotional in nature. Therefore we need to make sure our hormones are balanced by using the right diet and nutritional support along with healthy lifestyle choices.

While men and women have different hormone profiles, they have similar nutritional needs. In general both men and women need to promote the healthy methylation and detoxification of estrogens. Since estrogens are found in many types of meat and dairy, I strongly recommend all of my patients to eat an organic diet with and free range, grass-fed animal protein. By avoiding those foods grown with toxic pesticides and chemical estrogens, we are giving the body a chance to balance hormones naturally and experience a higher level of health.
