Estrogen Dominance may play a role in Post Partum Depression

Estrogen Dominance and PPD
Estrogen dominance and depression:
According to Sherrill Sellman depression is a symptom made worse by Estrogen Dominance..
Dr. Sellman, page 99, “After delivery, the placenta-derived progestereone is suddenly gone. Since the adrenals are the primary source of progesterone at that time, if they are exhausted there would be insufficient progesterone producesd. Remember that progesterone is a natural anti-depressan.
Many women experience depression in the days and weeks following childbirth. Research by Brian Harris and his colleagues in Wales found that, among 120 women, those with the highest prenatal and lowest postnatal progestereone levels also scored the highest on measures of post partum depression scores.
Post partum depression is generally difficult to treat and often anti-depressants become the first line of defence. Natural progesterone would be a more sensible and safer approach.
I find that the mention of adrenals as the primary source of progesterone, as a lack of sleep and a lack of good nutrition, as well as any kind of stress can put your adrenals into fight or flight mode. If fight or flight becomes permanent the adrenals become stressed themselves.
I think this is related to the many references to “helping the patient relax and sleep” in articles on aromatherapy and depression.
