Hello Nice presentation of the information Kindly suggest herbs that can help to treat estrogen dominance. black cohosh, dong quai, red clover have phytoestrogene which might not help. Agnus castus does not have any hormones of its own but it can help increase progesterone. Any other suggestions? Thanks
