    Natural Sun Care Solutions - Dr. Naomi Ha, ND

    Now that summer is just around the corner, it’s the perfect time for a suncare refresher.

  4. Natural Remedies for Estrogen Dominance

    The basic issue of estrogen dominance is that estrogen levels are too high relative to other hormones, specifically progesterone. Usually it occurs when estrogen levels go too high, though it can also happen when progesterone levels fall too low. It can occur at any time during life – during reproductive years, perimenopause, or even menopause. Many of the symptoms of estrogen dominance coincide with symptoms of other health issues. Common symptoms include:

    • Irregular Cycles: cycles are longer or shorter than normal, come sporadically, or you don’t have a period at all.
