EmpowHer Asks: When trying to treat endometriosis why is it important to try to decrease a woman’s estrogen? Dr. Tori Hudson, N.D. Naturopathic Physician We are pretty certain that estrogen stimulates has a stimulating effect that on endometriosis. We’re not saying it’s the cause necessarily but we know it has an influence. We think there are multiple potential causes of endometriosis and a one woman she might out of the whole six or seven theoretical causes. She what might be it play for her might be one or two or three of those six not necessarily all of those six. But we know that in our law six or seven theoretical causes that estrogen has an influence in stimulating the growth.
