    Estrogen and inflammation

    If the tissue damage is the cause of the appearance of estrogen in that tissue in order to heal it - what causes that tissue to become so easily damageable? Like in my case for example. I have Crohn's and my intestine is easily damaged with supplements and even cascara sagrada for example. It...
