Meet Andrea Nakayama
I’m Andrea Nakayama, a Functional Medicine Nutritionist, and I’d like to help you understand why estrogen dominance can contribute to your unwanted symptoms. Stubborn weigh gain, brain fog, skin issues, irritability, and more may be caused by an imbalance in your hormones—including an excess of the type of estrogens that aren’t serving your body or your health goals.
I created EstroZen to teach you the tools you need to take control of your own health so that you can finally feel like yourself again.

Who suffers from estrogen dominance and is this something I need to be concerned about? How about my partner?
Sadly, almost everyone of us suffers from estrogen dominance these days!
Our exposure to environmental estrogens is tipping the scale in your bathroom and in your internal chemistry. Estrogen dominance is prevalent in women and men alike, in our girls and even in our boys. Get this: Over 70,000 registered chemicals in the U.S. have hormonal and toxic effects that are difficult for your body to detoxify.
- industrial chemicals (like lead, mercury and PCBs)
- plastics (particularly BPA)
- dairy products from animals fed chemical growth hormones
- skin, hair and cleaning products that contain estrogenic chemical compounds
We understand that it can be overwhelming to think about. And these substances can be overwhelming your body, leaving you in a state of overwhelm and despair.
In EstroZen, we’ll explore what these environmental estrogens are and what you can do about them to help bring you the balance and ease you crave.
You mention snacks with fat, fiber & protein for maintaining blood sugar as an important baseline for hormonal balance. I am wondering if you have some suggestions for snacks like this. And, what if you are on the go?
This is a great question. We definitely encourage people to travel around with things on hand so they don’t get caught in a pinch, with their blood sugars down. This is going to lead to the kind of desperate spontaneity that rarely serves our goals. (Low blood sugar = grabbing whatever is convenient.)
Two suggestions are making miso soup and our Flax Max bar, which can be prepared in advance. Thermoses are great and the bars hold up well in a wax bag or small container (especially as the weather cools — your good fats won’t melt as easily!).
We also advise people to carry nuts, seeds or some kind of healthy bar option to help keep even and balanced.
Do you have any other tips about helping women who have belly weight and are around menopausal age?
Absolutely! This is one of the things we’ll be diving into in EstroZen.
Sometimes the weight falls off during the course and other times it lingers, here or there. One of those places is right on the belly. Belly fat that won’t budge is a good indicator that there is some hormonal imbalance at play.
It’s important to balance blood sugar. That’s #1. Then we need to support adrenal issues. If you’re living in a state of fight or flight, as many of us are, you’re producing excesses of the hormone cortisol. Excess cortisol = belly fat.
But we can’t produce excess cortisol forever. We’ll run out of steam. What happens then? We produce less than we need. So then we don’t just have less fight or flight and diminished “get up and go,” we’re stuck with the fatigue and the flab!
But there’s another hormonal imbalance that can easily lead to belly fat. That’s estrogen dominance. This is a situation that has become epidemic in our society for men, women and children alike. In EstroZen we’ll explore how and why this is happening, as well as WHAT to do about it! That’s what EstroZen is all about!
We’ll beat the belly fat by cleaning up our diets and our environments, and discover what BALANCE really means.
Will you provide gluten free and vegan alternatives?
You can rest assured that anything you ever do with the Functional Nutrition Alliance is gluten free and sugar free. Through the weeks we will remove some other food constituents to support your body’s balance as well.
There is some other non-dairy animal protein included, if you want or already eat it. There are only a couple animal protein dishes each week, and that way you can eliminate those to suit your dietary needs or restrictions, or include a bit more as your body requires.
And you’ll find plenty of answers in the EstroZen Answer Board to help navigate your unique needs dietary and otherwise.
What if I eat a grain-free diet? Can I do this?
As with the animal protein, there is little to no grain in this course. Where it is included, it can easily be substituted.
If you always wanted to see what a grain-free diet could do to reduce your inflammation, pain, help with weight loss, and improve mental clarity, then this is a great opportunity for that, among other things. If you’re scared of a grain-free diet, don’t be! You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how good the food is and you’ll have so many recipes to carry you forward with a new way of eating – no matter how you decide to eat beyond the three weeks.
What are good supplements to take?
We’ve actually set up a supplement store to help you make the choices that will best benefit your experience. The recommended supplements are not required, but instead meant to support your explorations and inquiries should you choose to bring in that additional help for your hormone balancing.
The bottom line? We’ve got your diet and supplement needs covered!
Is this a detox? I’m scared of a detox! I’ve heard horrible things about detoxes. I’ve heard about friends doing detoxes and starving or living off of lemon and water drinks. I’m busy and don’t have time to slow down or not have enough energy. Can I still balance my hormones without starving myself?
Deep breath. We’re going into Zen territory here.
Many people use the terms detox and cleanse interchangeably. But at the Functional Nutrition Alliance, we’ve created a distinction between the two. It’s this distinction that will help you to make the appropriate investment of your time and resources to reach your optimal health goals.
We’re taking out the substances that slow you down, make you sick, clog your sinuses, cause gas and bloating, make you retain unnecessary weight, and leave you feeling tired and foggy. Hormonal havoc!
Sometimes the things we’re removing are foods and sometimes they’re more than foods – behaviors or beliefs, patterns and habits, environmental toxins, all the things that are holding us back. Our intent here is hormonal balance and understanding how to achieve that for yourself. We’ll be getting into the nitty gritty while nurturing ourselves with delicious foods and grounding practices.
And at FxNA, we never remove without replacing. So you know exactly what to eat and what to do to help you feel great.
