A friend of mine asked about her Post Pregnancy Low Estrogen levels. Her doc wants to put her on an Estrogen cream treatment but she has read some nasty things about that treatment.
Anyone advice for diet/lifestyle changes to incorporate that can get her back on balance?

Yikes! It is rather common for the mainstream medical system to just treat the problem not look for a solution. Were these levels tested via blood or saliva? Salivary tests are much more accurate! Has your friend recently lost a lot of baby weight? That can trigger an estrogen drop. Is she breastfeeding? Also a cause of low estrogen and an important piece of info if she wants to try some herbal remedies such as Vitex.
Breastfeeding: - Supplement 1000mg Evening Primrose Oil/day - gentle exercise - Sex (sounds funny but it works) - Ensure she's getting adequate carbs/calories
Not Breastfeeding: - Vitex (found at good health food store)
Best wishes to her!
