Anastrozole is an aromatase inhibitor it blocks the aromatase enzyme, thereby preventing the production of estrogen. For those male bodybuilders who use steroids, a popular drug Anastrozole can be used to reduce excess estrogen. It is usually taken with estrogen receptor antagonists like Nolvadex and Clomid which hinders the action of estrogen allowing just enough for normal function. All of these drugs have not proven to be effective against the most harmful form of estrone metabolites.

Most doctors and health conscious people are not aware of the complexity of estrogen metabolism. A handful of cancer researchers and anti-aging doctors know there are nearly 40 different estrogen metabolites! These metabolites come from sex hormones (DHEA, Testosterone, Estriol, and Estradiol) and they eventually turn into either good or bad estrogens. These are usually measured in the urine or by a very special blood test to detect the ratios of good to bad estrogens. A healthy ratio was believed to be 2 to 1. That is two times more good estrogen (2OHE) than bad estrogen (16aOHE). Our research now suggests one can improve the ratio even more toward 10 to 1 or in some cases 20 to 1 at which point troublesome side effects disappear.

It is only with the addition of cruciferous derived compounds found in a natural estrogen blocking product that you can clear these bad metabolites to ensure the prevention of estrogen-related side effects. This is why men with gynecomastia (enlarged fatty man breasts)have so many problems when they are on cycles of testosterone or steroids because the drugs only block estrogen, they don’t clear the unmetabolized hormones the way a natural estrogen blocker with the proper DIM to I3C ratio does. Most bodybuilders go to a surgeon to remove the fatty breast tissue. If they knew about this natural estrogen blocker, they could solve the problem naturally as some bodybuilders have found out on our protocol.

Surprisingly it is the metabolites of estrone that are responsible for many of the unwanted side effects found with anabolic steroid use such as acne, gynocomastia, water-retention, and many other symptoms according to the abstract Estrogen, the Male toxin in Anti-Aging Medical News, Winter 2003, by Nick Delgado PhD. Now we know that not only women but men can have estrogen dominance. In men increased estrogen levels causes’ enlarged prostate in men, obesity, hair loss and loss of sex drive. In women increased estrogen levels causes’ breast tenderness, risk of breast, cervical or uterine cancer, weight gain, fluid retention, acne, mood changes and depression.

It is wrong to think, however, that estrogen and its effects (particularly water and fat retention) are absolutely detrimental to bodybuilding or athletics. Remember that this hormone in the good form of estrogen (20HE) is also responsible for muscle strength and gains. Consequently, it minimizes the occurrence of injury as it improves the ability of muscle fibers to withstand contractile tension or stress. This is why many people interested in anti- aging and prevention of disease are learning to use natural compounds that exert a benefit of increasing a good form of estrogen (2OHE) allowing some beneficial estrogen activity in the body.

It’s true that if you’re using highly aromatizable steroids, such as testosterone, you can achieve impressive muscle gains with decreased possibility of water retention and gynecomastia if you use Anastrozole with natural Estroblock that clears out the estrogen metabolites out of the body. The result is a more ripped and defined physique. J. Steroid Biochem Mol Biol. 2002 Apr;80(4-5):411-8. And now we have the most potent herb phytochemical combination to clear the bad estrogens, not just block estrogen.

If your doctor prescribes the Anastrozole drug to fight cancer or to gain a performance edge against aging, be aware that it has a short active life; dosages are usually taken two to three times a day at equal intervals. In one study, both .5mg and 1mg doses of Arimidex were shown to decrease estrogen by roughly 50%. The 1mg/day dose also increased testosterone levels by 58%. Many anabolic steroids convert to estrogen (aromatize via the aromatase enzyme). J. Clin Endocrinol Metab 2000 Jul; 85(7):2370-7, “Estrogen Suppression in Males.” In that same study, in both groups, LH and FSH also went up slightly. Yet doctors prefer to limit the use of drug blockers to avoid long term side effects such as osteoporosis or reduced “good” HDL levels affecting the risk of heart disease. It may be best to use Arimidex only one or two weeks per month, or at most, at low dose of less than .5 mg three times a week. Give the body time to adjust by not taking the Estrogen drug suppressor for two to three weeks each month.

The best way to combat estrogen activity is to use a natural estrogen blocker every day. In addition I recommend maintaining good healthy forms of estrogen by exercise and diet. Reduce separated processed fats and oils. Eat only whole food fats such as soaked nuts, walnuts, cashews, seeds, avocados, and coconut. Add rich quantities of raw cruciferous vegetables such as bok choy, napa cabbage, Savory cabbage, broccoli, and brussel sprouts in addition to using gluten free grains with less meat or dairy.
In addition, incidence of Osteoporosis and heart disease can be reduced by maintaining healthy IGF-1 levels with HgH stimulating amino acids, increasing testosterone and by taking a natural estrogen blocker with the proper DIM to I3C ratio daily to obtain the proper levels of good to bad estrogen ratios, along with diet and intense exercise.

Thanks for sharing your vies with us.While dim pro estrogen does not act as an estrogen blocker (such as Arimidex and Femara), nor in the same way as test boosters (short for testosterone boosters), dim pro effectively restores the body’s equilibrium as a powerful estrogen detoxifier.
thank you thank you thank you. I just had mastectomy and the doc wants to poison me for five yrs with arimidex. it can cause osteoporosis, it kills my legs, with hanis cramps and the list goes on including stroke or heart attack. I just need to change my diet and take an estogen blocker.yeah denis.

What do you consider the "proper" DIM to I3C ratio? Amounts?
Yes Denis,
I would agree, it is best to seek a better solution when facing taking a drug for over 5 years that has potential side effects. There may be very effective methods to restore the immune system and clear harmful estrogen metabolites with herbs, phytochemicals, diet, stress reduction and fitness. My cousin Laura was facing a second surgery after the "cancer came back."

She followed our advice, Dr Tony Jimenez, and myself and used natural methods described below. She temporarily used Armidex (less than two months).

She used EstroBlock Pro® which is triple strength as compared to virtually anything on the market. DIM Pro contains 100 mg of DIM which is 50% less than Estro Block Pro®. We like the amount of DIM- Diindolylmethane to be at least three times the amount of Indole-3 Carbinol (I3C) per capsule. We have seen the best results with the addition of Wasabi root, which is 40 times higher in Isothiocyanate than broccoli.

Isothiocyanate has been shown to induce apoptosis in certain cancer cell lines, inhibit carcinogenes and tumorigenesis in certain circumstances. Their mechanism of action is proposed to involve inhibition of cytochrome P450 enzymes. This same benefit occurs with combinations of indoles and phytochemicals from specific plants.

She used LivDTox® as Cell Stabilizer designed to fight cancer because it is rich in astragulus, tumeric, asparagus, apricot seed, pomegranate, ginger and silymarin all known to enhance immune activity and reduce harmful estrogen dominance. She has reduced 45 lbs. in body fat since following Simply Healthy recipes that are gluten free, oil free, soy free yet filled with unprocessed super foods. She also exercised daily.

My cousin had a repeat imaging to see the status of the tumor which has now virtually disappeared and does not require surgery! This took place during a period of less than one year. The only site of abnormal cellular activity was where they had done some prior radiation therapy in the past.

Most people have not been educated on the fact that cancer doesn’t just suddenly appear. The cancer has been growing for nearly 20 years in your body before medical science can even detect the tumor the size of a pea. After this point the tumor grows exponentially to become the size of a golf ball or grapefruit.

You will be then advised that your only course of recovery is chemotherapy, radiation and surgery without the support of nutritional, dietary, fitness, lifestyle and emotional support.

There are a growing number of cancer survivors and educators including Lorraine Day M.D. and Dr. Tom Lodi, M.D. who believe that a raw whole foods diet, gentle exercise, stress reduction, and supplementation see will assist the immune system to build a formidable defense.

I want to share with you some other steps to improving the immune system with the primary goal to solve cancer. Be sure to consume more Super foods every day that are rice in plant nitrates because they exert multiple beneficial effects on the body.

These special greens like kale or swiss chard are super foods because they allow the body to maintain high levels of nitric oxide.
Physical Fitness, super foods and supplements supply the source of power for these white blood cells traveling in the lymphatic immune system to kill invaders. White blood cells can generate high dosages of up to 10,000 times the level of nitric oxide compared to what our endothelial cells produce.
This concentration of nitric oxide inhibits the respiration inside these bacteria and pathogens killing them.

In the case of the immune system, our white blood cells can recognize, engulf and kill off dangerous pathogens, bacteria, fungi or cancer cells when they have enough nitric oxide and are not inhibited by excess oils or meats that reduce or deplete nitric oxide levels in the body.

This means by avoid meat, chicken and fatty cheese while consuming more yams, sweet potatoes, beans, peas, to get enough calories and protein along with super foods, super greens we can assist those with poor immune function to better health.

This same diet and wellness plan can dramatically reduce the risk of heart attacks, strokes, hypertension and arthritis. Be sure to add a quality source of trace minerals to your supplement plan along with omega algae based essentially fatty acids to prevent cramps and maintain better circulation.

Took anastrozole 1 mg for 1 week my body could not tolerate it emotional extremes am now back on tamoxifen Would you recommend the vetable diet and tamaxifen for a good start? In your opion only Please excuse my spelling also had a biopsy to check for what kind a cancer I had.
Yes i would recommend a whole foods vegetable, fruit, unprocessed, beans, yams diet I call a "Simply Healthy Diet". Read this inspiring case study of my own cousins experience when her cancer reappeared...

Case Study on Reversing Cancer Naturally using lifestyle medicine, monitored by an Oncologist

Laura Lamers April 13, 2014 · Eureka, CA ·
When I arrived home on Friday, we all sat down to talk about the return of cancer. I told my children mommy was going to have to completely revamp her diet. No meat, no chicken, no fish, no gluten, no dairy, no processed and refined sugars, no soy or soy products, no alcohol. This was not a change for the moment, this would be a rest of my life change. My beautiful daughter said, " I am in Mommy, I am in it with you." Yesterday we went shopping and completely restocked our pantry with things like agar to make our own almond tofu, coconut amino acids, coconut nectar, tons of fresh vegetables, almond flour, brown rice flour and many other things. We juiced and made healthy foods to munch on will continue to do so today, tomorrow and forever. With the strength of my daughter, my family and the guidance of my Cousin Nick Delgado I will change my lifestyle and regain my health back.

In April of this year I was diagnosed with Breast Cancer once again. The Breast Cancer came back on the same side I had the mastectomy and on my back between my 9th and 10th rib. Of course the doctors wanted to be very aggressive with this, since it came back, it was under five years and I have two young children at home. They wanted me to remove the implant, remove my Lateral muscle that was wrapped around the front to create the new breast that I now have, one year of aggressive chemo therapy and six to eight weeks of radiation. They wanted me to nuclear bomb my body. I said "No". This did not work the first time, because it came back. I looked at this very logically, the cancer lives in my body. The cancer needs food in order to continue to live. The one thing I have control of is what I ingest, what I feed my body. I made a commitment in April of 2014 to cut out all meat, chicken, fish, dairy, gluten, soy, alcohol, processed sugars and oils. Today I had my P.E.T. Scan and I am pleased to say there is no visible trace of the cancer on my right breast and the cancer on my 9th and 10th rib is still there but it has not grown. My markers are clean, my vitamin D has never been better all of my labs are great! Even though it is a scary proposition to live with cancer, I feel I made the right choice. My doctor was very happy with the results. I go back in January for another P.E.T. scan. My cousin Nick Delgado provided me the guidance to make these changes in my diet, so thank you Nick, you gave me my life back. My husband Mark Lamers supported me in my decisions and has been my rock star, thank you Mark for being there and believing in my choice to live healthy. My children Thea and Alex I do all of this for you because every breath I take gives me more time to enjoy you both, to watch your grow and to share our wonderful lives together. Now for a good night’s rest!

I am a product formulator of nutritional/nutraceutical products for Health Care Professionals located in British Columbia, Canada.

Last year, I got approached by 10 Naturopathic Physicians who asked me if I could come up with a formulation for Aromatase Inhibition, as they were not happy with what was currently available
(typically what is used is Calcium-D-Glucarate, DIM, I-3-C or some combination thereof).

I was delighted and excited when I started doing some research in the medical literature to come across a paper published in the Journal of Nutrition in 2001 detailing the efficacy of white button mushrooms
(the mushrooms available in most grocery stores: Agaricus bisporus) for inhibiting Aromatase and breast cell proliferation.

Here is the PUBMED abstract link:

J Nutr. 2001 Dec;131(12):3288-93.

"White button mushroom phytochemicals inhibit aromatase activity and breast cancer cell proliferation"

So here is a great (and inexpensive) additional approach to Aromatase Inhibition

(I eat a lot of white button mushrooms these days...)

Rob Lamberton
Yeah as far as i have found it actually works same as you said but some resources defend this phenomenon

Thanks for your comment Rob,
The suggestion of mushrooms is a good one to reduce estrogen dominance. Besides white button mushrooms, we have used Lions Mane, cordyceps, reishi, maitake, and tremella.

We have found that the best aromatase inhibitors include: DIM, indo-3-carbinol (I3C), D-Glucolatone (which is the same as calcium-d-glucarate), and wasabi. All of these we include in Estro Block Pro.

To further help reduce estradiol levels in men we use turmeric, astragalus and cyperus in LivDTox.
See my website:
add me:
What is the worst exposure to harmful estrogens in our environment? is it plastics? is it pesticides, fire retardant on bedding, or is it really from animal products such as red meat, chicken, pork, and dairy foods? The answer is that animals are highly hormonal source of estrogen exposure and switching to a plant based protein diet, you will dramatically reduce your exposures to estrogen hormones!.
The Supplement LivDTox
containing Turmeric root, Astragalus, Asparagus, Wasabi, Silymarin, and Ginger Root as from our experience significantly reduced the conversion of testosterone to estradiol. We have observed elevated Estradiol levels in men reduce from over 60 down to ideal levels of under 30 after just 6 weeks of taking the suggested loading dosage of 4 capsules a day (2 in morning and 2 in evening), then reducing down to maintenance dosage of 2 capsules a day.
The next step is use a quality DIM product such as EstroBlock Pro
to convert the bad 16aOHE estrone to more of the good 2OHE Estrone.
The final step is provide quality methyl donor from DMG,
to allow the toxic estrogens to exit out of the bodies pathway. DMG, TMG, SAMe, and 5MTHF, along with B12 Methylcobalamin found in the supplement Stay Young will provide sufficient clearance for balance.
See my website:
add me:
Here is a good explanation of why we need to use methylations and the anti-aging benefits
See my website:
add me:
Thank you, great information. Did I miss recommended daily dosage info of DIM? I see the ratio question answered. Could you expound on dosage?
My daughter has CPP (central pubescent puberty). She is 9, and her bone growth is that of a 12 year old. She started her period, so she's not going to grow more than an inch or two, and she's not even 5' tall yet. Doctors usually recommend a Lupron shot, which will stop her body from producing estrogen, so she can continue to grow taller, and her chronological age can catch up with her bone growth. Unfortunately I only have 50% custody, and her father will not allow her to have the shots. I've been researching other ways of stopping her estrogen. Will these estrogen blocking supplements help her? Even if it doesn't stop it, maybe it will minimize it enough to allow her to continue to grow. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
